Such great variety. So many characters you will want to read much more about. The Lightning Tree is especially good.

Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

Very annoying that character voices change from past books. This is not Roy Dotrice's fault, but the producer needs to do a better job reminding him how each character sounds. Otherwise, amazing!

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.

Book was great as usual, but Dotrice changed some voices of characters from 1st three books. I don't blame him, but a producer should have reminded him how he performed for each character. otherwise, very great
