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)

    "The book is ok but the performance is lacking"

    I like that this book familiarizes you with Westeros more than the previous books. It focuses more on the current state of the seven kingdoms and less on specific characters. This book leaves many of the characters out completely which was disappointing but still worth the listen.

    The performance in this book is very poor. Dotrice does give each character their own voice but he changes them so much from the previous versions it really takes away from the experience that you come to expect.

    "Good reading and good story."

    I just wish it would have been written to cover all the characters in each book of 4 and 5 instead if half and half. otherwise loved it all.

    "Roy does wonderfully again"

    I enjoyed the book but I found it kinda boring, I'm not a big fan of cersei and adding new characters into the book made it difficult for me to keep up with. I listen to my books at work and I found myself more often having to restart a chapter or rewind by several minutes because I would start to wander off in my imagination on tangents, most of them cersei's chapters. None the less the book was great just wish there were more original characters. If Jon and tyrion were in this book instead of waiting till book 5 I think I would've enjoyed it a lot more.

    "Voice actor changes pronunciation of names and cha"
    Where does A Feast for Crows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    5th


    What didn’t you like about Roy Dotrice’s performance?

    He changed how he pronounced the names of charters and used different voices for characters when compared to the 1st 3 books

    "Good book, but what happened to the narrator?"
    What did you love best about A Feast for Crows?

    These are great books and have a story that keeps you guessing start to finish


    Any additional comments?

    i'm amazed that the same person can read 4 books about the same world, and in the 4th book he pronounces so many things differently. Having finished book 3 one day and started book 4 the next, it was very disappointing/aggravating to have the same voice reading the next book, But no longer knowing how he had previously pronounced the names of so many characters/locations.

    "What happened to the old voices?"

    Roy changed a few voices for the worse, namely Arya and Littlefinger, though Jaime sounded less gruff and therefore marginally improved. Dunno why some pronunciations were changed, perhaps to be more in keeping with the show? (this was produced in 2011)

    "If you like reading George Martin, you already know"

    I won't tell you this book is for everyone. Like the last couple, it's not nearly as action packed and just feels like more continued setup. Only now it's missing half the characters (they're in the next book).

    But if you like the level of detail and the world and the politics, it's a great read/listen.

    The narrator pronounces some of the names differently from the series, so be prepared for that, even though this was recorded well before HBO got started. It can be a bit jarring.

    Basically, you already know if you want to read this one. If you got through the first three books and feel like you want more of the same, you should get this. If not, I'm not sure how you made it through the third, actually. But there are no surprises in the writing, just in the plot. ;)

    "Not as good as others"

    The names of characters were pronounced differently and the voices were not as defined. I enjoyed the other books better.
