Song of Fire and Ice Book #4 by George R.R. Martin
A Feast for Crows is the fourth of seven planned novels in the epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire by American author George R. R. Martin. The novel was first published on 17 October 2005 in the United Kingdom, with a United States edition following on 8 November 2005.
In May 2005 Martin announced that the "sheer size" of his still-unfinished manuscript for A Feast for Crows had led him and his publishers to split the narrative into two books. Rather than divide the text in half chronologically, Martin opted to instead split the material by character and location, resulting in "two novels taking place simultaneously" with different casts of characters.
I have to say, thank goodness I didn't read this book in 2005! Because I hated it. There's no Dany and dragons or Tyrion, minimal show time with Jon. Thankfully there was Ayra, Brienne and Samwell, though definitely not enough. At least now I know that tomorrow I can go pick up Dance with Dragons and continue on with hopefully all my favourites.
This book revolves around
Pate - minimal remembered by the end of the book, other than he pops up, but as someone else in the end.
Cersei Lannister - drove nuts, her logic is so illogical. But I am very curious about where the book leaves her
Ser Jaime Lannister - can't decide is he good or bad or just stupid. Easily decieved by Cersei... but slowly growing up to see what she's become. He grew on me. But he's not Tyrion.
Brienne - I LOVE Brienne, but there were major parts of her story I struggled to read, it was just to graphic and horrible.
Alayne Stone - I liked the parts she was in but it wasn't enough and there was a total cliffhanger. Does she except littlefingers offer? How long will she play this game?
Cat of the Canals - definitely my favourite and that's all I am gonna say
Samwell Tarly - next in line. He is so whiny but then he's not
In the Iron Islands: Prince Aeron "Damphair" Greyjoy, Princess Asha Greyjoy, and Prince Victarion Greyjoy - didn't really enjoy any of their stories I just wanted to go back to Cat of the Canals or even Cersei.
In Dorne: Areo Hotah, Ser Arys Oakheart, and Arianne Martell - loved Arianne and would like to get to know her more. Don't really remember the other two.
Off to read another book!!
