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)

    "It was a good listen."

    I enjoyed Dotrice's proformance, though he does mess up an accent or two throughout the 30 hours.

    The book itself is enjoyable, but nothing much happens in terms of major plot lines.

    "I loved this book!"
    Where does A Feast for Crows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best, love the whole series.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If you watch Game of Thrones the books are still really good, they fill in information and make the show better. You will still be sunrised, they change enough that in a lot of ways they differ.

    "Interesting..."

    Storyline was very good (the view into Cersei's head was illuminating; she is a narcissistic sociopath). It was good to get a break from some of the major characters. Roy Dotrice is an amazing narrator, but this book was a bit of a departure in that the voices he had been using for some memorable characters (Samwell Tarley, Petyr Baelish, Dolorous Edd) were totally different than in the former 3 books. That took a while getting used to. I guess it's tough to remember all the diff voices!

    "A Feast for No One"

    I have been captivated by the previous three novels in the Song of Ice and Fire Series. I truly believe that George R.R. Martin is brilliant in his creation of the world of Westeros and the characters therein. However, this fourth book leaves much to be desired. From the confusing epilogue, which has no connection to the story, until the very last chapter, there is very little movement whatsoever. There were virtually no memorable moments, twists, or even deaths that made the book worthy to be held up against its predecessors. Roy Detrice delivers a decent performance, but it is true that he changed the pronunciation of several main characters' names, which can be very confusing. Also the tonality he uses for Arya and Samwell Tarly are completely different than the previous books.

    All in all, you're better off reading a summary of this novel online rather than wasting 40+ hours of your life hearing nothing but descriptions and dialogue.

    "Roy Dotrice is a delight"

    Different voices, every one distinct. Even women had distinct tones and voices, leading to full immersion in the story. Kudos

    "Good story, bad performance"

    I love this series. Read the books, watch the show, and now listening to the story. But I wish the narrator had taken a little extra time to remember how he had pronounced the names in the previous books. That was very irritating and took me out of the story each time.

    "Not like the first three"

    Did he forget who the people were, what they sounded like??? I liked the story but had a hard time figuring out who was who. He should have listened to the first three...

    Story
    "Narration is terrible, Story is average"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If Roy had remembered how to read the same way he already had for over 100 hours.


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

    The most interesting aspect was the relationship covered between Jaime and Cersei Lannister. The least interesting aspect was the fact that GRRM kept the most interesting characters (Daenerys, John Snow, Bran, ect) out of this book completely and barely had Arya.


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

    Barely. Certainly not a series if he's just going to switch characters. It's like switching an actor in a TV show.


    What character would you cut from A Feast for Crows?

    Sam and Sansa. They're both so whiney and their story lines are uneventful. Cersei Is near unbearable to listen to as well. She just sits and runs her mouth about her obviously clouded judgement and how she "Is truly her father's daughter" I'd have much preferred the perspective of the young queen or new High septon to tell the story of King's landing.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd be so angry if I waited years to find out what happened to any of the interesting characters and got this thing.

    "Leprechaun pirates"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator's voice choices.


    What other book might you compare A Feast for Crows to and why?

    All the other books in this series.


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

    No.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read all the books, but I swear I don't remember the part where Tyrion and Arya become leprechaun pirates. Will have to re-read...

    Seriously, though--I bought the audio version to be able to use the Whispersync feature with my Kindle app. It works fine, recommend it for the convenience. Except with this particular book, every time I switch to audio and Arya speaks (in an unequivocally male voice, btw) it sounds like her (really, HIS) next line is going to be "Yarrrrr! Wherrrre be me Lucky Charms?!"

    I've listened to lots of audio books, narrated by both men and women, and never had such a strange and off-putting experience.

    "Another great addition to Game of thrones series"

    such a great series of books I have a hard time putting them down when reading, listen to them at work when not reading. I gave the show a try to see what the fuss was about and immediately had to get the books.
