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)

    "Huge drop off from the first 3 books"

    It was amazingly boring and confusing. Overuse of dreams, rapid fire introduction of new characters, and too much jumping around. It was impossible for me to ever get into this book. Very disappointing

    "Table setting book, intolerable narration"

    I read this book years ago. I've been re-listening to the series, using the National Library Service narrations. They used the excellent Roy Avers for the first three books, but AFFC was done by the less preferable Ted Stoddard, so I thought I would try this Roy Dotrice version…
    I heard good things about his earlier narrations, but sadly I was very unimpressed. Name pronunciations were annoying, his women all sound like old crones or toothless hags, and most of the men who aren't Scottish highlanders, are straight-up pirates. I just can't finish it, although I listened to several chapters to give it a chance.
    I wish the John Lee version was available here.
    For now, it's back to Stoddard.

    As for the book: it's the least great of the first five, but it's still GRRM, so it's still quite good by any other standard.:)

    "Tough book"

    The narrator, whom I like, chose to change his voices for characters between book 3 and book 4. Made it confusing for awhile. And then the book is harder to read than the first 3. The story followed people who are not like able.

    "Narration Flaws But Worth A Listen"

    I know a lot of people are complaining about the changing of the pronunciation of names/places and the characters' voices being different from the previous three books. Admittedly, that is a tad annoying, but you do get used to it. The thing that bothered me the most was the inconsistency with which the pronunciation was done. Dotrice is very talented and I enjoy his narrations of the amazing GRRM books. However, the switching between two different pronunciations of the same name within minutes of each other is quite irksome. Overall, A Feast For Crows, written by George R R Martin and narrated by Roy Dotrice, was very enjoyable and I can't wait for more Song of Ice and Fire audiobooks!!

    "Crap performance"

    Voice actor called Lady Stark "Caitlyn" through the entire book! So obnoxious. He screws up names quite often and has switched pronunciations a few times throughout the series.

    "Great story missing characters"

    I love this book, it's kinda of slow considering the previous book "A storm of swords" but good nonetheless. Not all the major characters are in the novel due to it being split in half with ADWD.

    "Perfectly Awful"

    Roy Dotrice botches everything from the pronunciation to the voices. I could not differentiate Brienne's voice from the hedge knights'. Practically every female voice sounds like some common troll. I tried my best to ignore the pronunciation errors, I even got used to the strange ways he said the names of major characters, but every once in a while Roy would change his pronunciation and say a characters name correctly despite saying it incorrectly for the entire first half of the chapter.

    I think changing the names of major characters from book to book is jarring enough but doing it in the span of a chapter is pure laziness. Mr. Dotrice should not shoulder all the blame here either. The man is not in a recording studio by himself is he?

    I wish there was another alternative to this for fans who want to listen to A Feast, but it seems we must suffer through the deaths of our favorite characters and the death of our ear drums.
