Publisher's Summary

GAME OF THRONES: A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO.

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.

A Feast for Crows

It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.

But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

What the Critics Say

"Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best.... [He] is a tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting plotter and a deft and inexhaustible sketcher of personalities.... This is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien." (Time)

"The only fantast series I'd put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings…. It's a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don't read fantasy…. If you're new to the series, you must begin with Book 1, A Game of Thrones. Once you're hooked…. you'll be like the rest of us fans, gnawing your knuckles until book 5” (Marta Salij, Detroit Free Press)

“THE MOST impressive modern fantasy, both in terms of conception and execution, is George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.… A masterpiece that will be mentioned with the great works of fantasy.” (Contra Costa Times)

    "Reader took this book off. Silly voices..."

    Not sure what happened, but for some reason the reader was very inconsistent in the book with the names and voices from the previous productions. Yuck.

    Story
    "Meandering and slack"

    The longer I go through A Song of Ice and Fire the more concerned I'm becoming that it is not a story with a beginning, middle, and end. It's starting to seem like it is just a bunch of stuff that happens.

    A Feast for Crows features a dizzying expansion of characters, which can make for difficulties keeping track of the multiplying plot lines. While most (but not all) of the plot lines in the book eventually deliver some drama and a sense of the overall plot moving forward, many of the chapters of this book feel like minutiae. Characters meander through the landscape, have conversations or encounters that accomplish very little, and some of them meet ends that are supposed to be shocking (George R. R. Martin's calling card) but end up causing the reader or listener to wonder why the characters are even in the book in the first place.

    At times the book does manage to generate some electricity, but mostly it gets lost in its undisciplined sprawl. There is a really good book in here somewhere, but it needs a determined editor to bring it out.

    "OK, good, great"

    The first time through this book is tough as the only characters that you want to hear from are absent. However, the second and third time through you can really get into the details and appreciate the story.

    Story
    "I can't get past the poor narration"
    What disappointed you about A Feast for Crows?

    What happened? The narrator totally changed the voices that he does for some characters and also started mispronouncing names. For example he sometimes says Kate-lyn and sometimes Cat-lyn. It totally takes me out of the story! I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this one, because I don't know if I'll be able to finish it.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I haven't been able to get very far in this because of the narration, but I also don't really care about who's going to be the new king of the drowned men. That part drags on and on.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Pronounce the names correctly, be consistent in the voices used for characters


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I didn't listen to enough to find redeeming qualities.

    "Pronunciation of cast of characters names"

    Previous books in this series pronounced Catlin Starke as Cat*kin. This book her name was pronounced Kate*kin. Likewise previous books pronounced Petar Baylish as Pe*tar. This book his name was pronounced Pee*tee. Very annoying! Makes one feel the cast of characters changed without introduction. The Editor should have caught this during production before releasing.

    "Pretty Slow"

    This one is pretty slow in some spots.

    Starts out slow. New story lines. Full of good info, but slow nonetheless.

    "Great story"

    Book was fantastic but Roy changed some of the voices and pronounces names differently. Difficult to tolerate at first but you get used to it.

    "Love the tale...but the reader--ehhhhh."

    His female voices are all elderly--no matter the age! Pretty weird--and even the Bravossi sound Scottish or Irish.
