    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.

    What did you like best about A Feast for Crows? What did you like least?

    There are some good new characters introduced, but at the same time many of the characters one has come to enjoy appear little.


    What could George R.R. Martin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    As another reviewer commented, let some of the characters actually achieve something other than stabbing someone in the back. So many of the characters I loved are gone and so much time is spent on characters I really don't care about. this just seems a hodge podge of ideas rather than clear storytelling.


    Have you listened to any of Roy Dotrice’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Well, the previous three were better in my opinion. as others have noted character voicies have changed. Most notably Aria. She sounds like a gutter snipe, not the daughter of a lord.


    Was A Feast for Crows worth the listening time?

    Only to get to the last book.


    Any additional comments?

    I tremendously enjoyed the first three books. The fourth is talk, talk, talk.

    I am a real lover of Dickens and looked forward to listening to this book. Unfortuanately the sound quality is so poor it is often hard to understand, at least for me. The reader sounds as if he is underwater.
