A Feast For Crows – George RR Martin (2011)


The 4th book from George RR Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice Series is a departure from the previous books, and thusly, my least favourite. In this book, most of my favourite characters are missing – Tyrion, Danaerys, Davos – and we are following Arya, Cersei, Jaime and Brienne for the most part. Where previous books had balanced the politics and scheming of King’s Landing with the swashbuckling adventure of the Dothraki, the humour of Tyrion and the emerging power of Danaerys and her dragons, A Feast For Crows centres on Westeros, in particular King’s Landing. Without the balancing effect of the other characters, Cersei can, at times, be a laughable lunatic, and Brienne’s habit of repeating the same phrase again and again can be wearing. That said, A Feast For Crows is certainly not a bad book, it is merely a midway stepping stone in the series. It goes without saying that you must read this book if you are reading the series, but it certainly would not be a standalone book. (1061 pgs)
