    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Story

    Roy Dotrice appears to forget which accents and voices he had used for whom in the previous volumes, this is quite disruptive if you have listened to them consequetively. It is unfortunate as it detracts from the listening pleasure of the books. The story is still great and well worth a listen, shame he didn't keep a tab on something so integral to reading a series of books. The same mistake occurs in a dance with dragons with more characters.

    Ayla, one of the most remarkable and beloved heroines in contemporary fiction, continues to explore the world and the people around her with curiosity, insight, and, above all, courage. As the story opens, Ayla, Jondalar, and their infant daughter, Jonayla, are living with the Zelandonii in the Ninth Cave - a shelter of stone. Ayla has been chosen as an acolyte and has embarked on the arduous task of training to become a spiritual leader.

    Story

    I am a huge fan of this series and was so looking forward to listening to this last installment. I have read all the other books, this was my first time listening to the series. I eagerly bought it when i saw it advertised and have failed to get past the first chapter. I found the narrators rendition so jarring and distracting; i just can't get past it.

    Unfortunately to review you have to tick all the boxes, so I have given the book a four for the story rating as i am expecting good things from the hard copy and will revert back if it does not hold true to form.

    Story

    A truely great story. It takes you through the whole range of emotions from tears of pity to those of joy. A very touching, beautifully told story. I have heard it so many times and for me it never gets old. The narration is spot on and transports you seamlessly into the story and it's characters. One of my all time favourite reads and listens.
