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)

    "Worth a credit if you're already doing GoT"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes and no. It's the Roy Dotrice reading of the 4th book, which i wanted, but for reasons passing understanding, as has been stated in other reviews, Roy pronounces names differently and voices important characters differently.The story plods a little more than I'd like. There's WAY more Brienne trying to find Sansa than I needed, and it's exhausting tracking all of the minor characters. I suppose that's what makes it epic, though, eh? Still, it's a fun listen, and I love the detail.


    What aspect of Roy Dotrice’s performance would you have changed?

    Consistency with the first three books' pronunciations of names and places, and consistent use of accents for main characters.


    Could you see A Feast for Crows being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Already been done, and the show led me to the books. I really like the casting. Who doesn't love Peter Dinklage as Tyrion. That guy's amazing, and he nails the accent.


    Any additional comments?

    Roy Dotrice has talent. Lots of it. I conceptualize that it would be a daunting thing to switch between dozens of different voices, accents and inflections over dozens of hours of audio. Let's also not forget that Roy Dotrice is not a young guy. I imagine hours upon hours of recording gets to be tiresome from both a focus and larynx perspective. I still really enjoy these audiobooks because I get a lot more information than what can be shown in the TV series, and in a way that is probably more closely resembles the actual book. As an ADHD sufferer, it takes me months to get through a long book like this in analog form, as I end up reading lines over and over, as well as hoping I don't lose the book before I've finished it. I also spend a lot of time on the road, and I'd rather pass that time in Westeros than with low-bitrate satellite radio, even if it's a little bit of work to keep character continuity going in my head.I think that the implication that a refund is a just thing simply due to the narration inconsistencies is a little over-the-top. Is it a bummer? Yeah. Was it bad enough to make me want to delete the book and not listen to it? Nope.

    "Slow"

    This book was a bit slow and not as eventful as the previous. But had some good points.

    "Sound is off, and pronunciation is funky as well."
    Any additional comments?

    The sound is hallow, and Roy keeps pronouncing names in a different way than the last books. That is all.

    "another great part of Game of Thrones"

    great book, Roy's overall performance was great...just a little inconsistent with previous GOT books. can't wait for book 5 and the release of 6......this book really puts a split for the HBO series. and the novels....but both do the story justice......great great book

    "I have greatly enjoyed each of these books!"

    If you like books with panoramic scope, complex characters and plot, you'll love this book and this series (so far, anyhow). I only wish there was more on The Maid, Tyrion, and Aria

    "Very good!"

    This episode of the book was just as good as the last. was very surprised to see all the negative comments, it's been 6 years guys since the last one was recorded, yes there were some changes in the character voices. but the essence of the characters remained, except for Jaime and tyrion who under went some very traumatic and life changing developments. I loved it!

    "meh"

    Though this is definitely a trip back to the universe of Westeros, nothing of note really happens in this book and in fact much time is wasted on apparently irrelevant events. Hopefully some of it will have something to do with the events in the fifth book. I enjoyed this one the least so far.

    "Pronunciation Issues"

    Roy Dotrice has narrated all these books, yet he kept pronouncing "Catelyn (Cat-lynn)" as "Caitlin (Kate-lynn)". Really?

    The book was a bit slow in the beginning, but I found myself enjoying it. It was a nice change of pace to see things from Cersei and Brienne's POV, Arianne Martell has become one of my favorite characters, I'm disappointed she isn't in the show. Can't wait to start A Dance With Dragons!
