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)

    "A note for the Roy Dotrice (and other narrators)"

    Roy, you've done a great job narrating the series up until this point, but you've completely destroyed your reputation in my eyes by not taking the time to go back and remember the voices you used for the different characters. Hearing them all speak with someone else's voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard. My favorite voice was Dolorous Edd, but you've essentially killed that character and replaced him with someone I don't know. :-(

    different voices from Roy made this challenging. slow plot seems to set up future books.

    "Great story telling, slow development of events..."

    Pace of the 4th book is a little on the slow side and with several of the main characters missing, this book doesn't deserve the 5 stars I'd give the first 3 books. Roy Dotrice makes it all worthwhile though, stunning narrator who will keep you hooked regardless!

    "The speaker changed a bit"

    Great story, but Roy Dotrice changed his pronunciations. He hanged voices too. It took a while to get used to, I hope it's different for the next book.

    "boom goes the dynamite"

    Roy Dotrice is an absolute BEAST! My mind started to melt and leak out of my ears around chapter 2. Top notch.

    "Great book brought low by awful reading"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Roy Dotrice is a fine reader and has done very good work on previous ASOIAF books. However, this reading is a challenge to get through. A completely different reader or a straight reading (no character voices) would have made this a 5-star experience.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    As many have stated, the choices for character voices are a horrible distraction. Young girls sound like old crones, wizened scholars sound like blubbering small folk and character name pronunciation's are all over the place, often changing back and forth within the same chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    I imagine this series has to be among the best selling for Audible. They really owe the listeners a re-recorded version of this particular installment.

    "great story, great narration"

    I personally don't have a problem with the characters Roy portrays being slightly different than previous books. the change is not super noticeable. if you really like the books, it won't effect your enjoyment of this narration.
    I also prefer Roy's portrayal of Samwell in this more than in previous books.

    "So good!"

    Great story originality thanks to RR Martin. The ability of the audio narrator is impressive considering the number of prominent characters. Thoughtful... and impeccable story telling.

    "A Rose by Any Other Reader"

    The story is ok, though by far the most boring of the books so far, but, oh my God, I don't think Roy Dotrice has ever actually heard anyone talking before. The voices he does, NOT ONLY are INCONSISTENT with his previous reading, but are JUST PLAIN BAD. The 14 year old Denarys Targaryan and 12 year old Arya Stark, as well as any other young woman he voices, sounds like an old scottish woman with a tack in her throat. His standard old woman voice sounds like a 100 year old with throat cancer. Old man sounds about the same as his old woman, with a slightly harder pitch. Middle age man sounds like an 80 year old man with the whooping cough. It's incredibly terrible narration, and you're SO MUCH better off just reading it yourself. Roy's narration ruins immersion, and is usually just plain annoying. Only buy this audiobook if you absolutely do not and will never have the time to read it yourself.

    "Still a good storyline and some interesting plots."

    Still a good storyline, but by the end it feels like an intermediary story. Towards the end it feels like it's setting something up, but it doesn't quite get there.
