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)

    "Excelent"

    Many will say that part if the story has stalled I just been amazed about the amount of details George R. R. Martin is able to create to entertain you. I keep loving the series and wanting to have more.

    "Great book."

    Small inconsistencies in the voices with previous books. But still overall great. And here's a few more words because I had to write 15.

    "Good book and a good reveal"

    the character development was good. Martin has a way of making the words come to life. I really enjoyed how well he captured the downward spiral of all the main characters. I hope there will be redemption for some but overall it's a darker story and that's good too.

    "Particularly enjoy the Performance of Roy Dotrice."

    I really love this series. Enthralling storytelling. Great voice work.
    I keep harping on Dotrice because the performance has really brought the tale to life for me.

    "Not a fan of narrator"

    Love these books but not a fan of the narrator. Some of the voices he does makes me want to turn it off sometimes. But I got through it!

    "What the heck!"

    Ok, first of all, the same narrator has done all 4 books. How come he doesn't know how to pronounce names? Every time he said someone's name wrong I wanted to scream!
    This book was VERY confusing. I got so tired of going back and re-listening to entire chapters, that I gave up and just kept plowing through. I haven't made it to the end yet. I needed a break. I will finish it because that is my personality, but I'm not going to like it. Book 5 better be better or stamp me DONE.

    "Good but voices were different."

    Voices were off from previous books. I really preferred the voices from the first couple of books.

    "Good story, sad narration"

    The storyline was well followed and explained in this book. Unfortunately the narrator mispronounced names which was confusing at first and irritating throughout. Was not consistent with the first 3 books he narrated.

    "Least favouite but still epic"

    My least favourite in the series so far in the series, this book felt more like it is setting up the next stage then being able to stand on it's own. George R.R. Martin uses our trust to break the 'show don't tell' rule. There is a lot of plotting, scheming and talking but not enough showing. I also found the plot to be the most predictable.

    You should know by now if you like the writing style. Long detailed descriptions of what everyone is eating, wearing and doing. Introducing and providing family histories of more minor characters then you can keep track of and will never see again. This will either help suck you into the world or bore you.

    In order to keep the characters more manageable only half the series POV characters are followed, so your favouite may not appear. We start to see glimpses of what some of these characters will become.

    Having said all that, I still was sucked into this and despite being three times a normal book it took me just a few extra days to read. The plots are epic in scope, complex, elaborate, interwoven and clever. Many characters means we get to have the action of a fighter, the slow reveal of a planner and the decent of someone losing their mind.

    If you read the previous books and enjoyed them, especially the politics and backstabbing then continue reading this. If not then it might be a good time to stop.

    Been over a year since I listened to the previous book so I didn't notice the voices being different.
