Lisa Reads: A Feast for Crows
(A Song of Ice and Fire #4)
by George R.R. Martin
I have to admit it: of the books in this series, this one is my least favorite. I don’t know why, though.
The plotting is still intricate and interesting. The cast of characters is still downright intimidating, and sometimes I need to use the wiki to remember who somebody is. Granted, some of my favorite POV characters weren’t in this book much… It’s hard for the dead to have much of a point of view. Some of the others are showing up in Book 5, which runs concurrently with Book 4, so I’m not cheated.
This is a beautifully written series. I just didn’t enjoy this book quite as much as the others. I suspect it is quite necessary for the rest of the series…

Man… These books are WEARING me OUT!
That doesn’t mean I don’t like them. They are complicated and intense and well-written. He foreshadows so skillfully that you don’t realize what he’s doing until the thing he foreshadows happens. And THEN, you are sure he is pointing to something that is certainly going to occur, but it’s only logical misdirection!
When I grow up, I want to write as well as GRRM!
Anyhow, back to the book! Lots of people that I care about are now dead. Occasionally, I am celebrating at their death. Some of the people that I expected to be dead are still hanging around… But there are still two more books to read so far.
