    A Feast for Crows brings to life dark magic, intrigue and terrible bloodshed as the war-torn landscape of the Seven Kingdoms is threatened by destruction as vast as any in its violent past. The War of the Five Kings has ripped Westeros apart. The bloodthirsty, treacherous and cunning Lannisters occupy the Iron Throne, with allies as ruthless as themselves. Lord Frey was host at the Red Wedding, so called for the massacre of the guests, their screams unheard above the music of the feast.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Die-hard fans that can overlook the limitations of the narration.


    Would you be willing to try another book from George R. R. Martin? Why or why not?

    I want to get this one over with so I can move on to the last.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Roy Dotrice’s performances?

    As long as it's better than this one.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Feast for Crows (Part One)?

    The scenes aren't the issue.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't have a problem with the changed name pronunciation, or the different accents. The thing that really frustrates me is that it seems like that rather than reading a story, the narrator is reading a series of sentences that don't necessarily relate. The timing between passages is pretty bad - with new chapters sounding like a continuation of the last sentence. The timing is just off and the tone of the reading is like, as I said, reading a list of sentences.

    Hoping that book 5 is better.
