Mummer is kind of an entertainer/actor. They travel in groups to entertain and perform shows.

People in Westeros believe that the god has seven aspects and Stranger is one of the seven aspects of the god according to the "Faith of Seven". People worship it rarely since it is related to death and believed to lead the dead to wherever they go after death.

Silent sisters are kind of undertakers and are sworn to the service of Stranger. They kinda deliver the dead to Stranger.(less)

The context here is everything.

A Song of Ice and Fire began with the publication of A Game of Thrones in 1996. Thrones introduced us to the land of Westeros, a continent the size of South America but suspiciously similar to medieval England. We followed a handful of characters representing various factions of the Seven Kingdoms, squabbling for the right to sit upon the Iron Throne. Its grittiness, tactility, fully-realized characters, and high stakes (a major character loses a head) gave it a c

I'm not quite sure what happened, here.

As others have mentioned, Martin slows the pace of the story down considerably in this fourth installment of A Song of Ice and Fire, ostensibly writing this as the first half of a two-book volume, with a 3-5 year production time on each. As such, the book is by necessity filled with unresolved storylines, AWOL main characters, and lengthy travelogues where nothing of importance happens. Of course, this draws the inevitable comparisons to another famous fant

Hey everyone, George RR Martin here. I thought I'd take some time off from planning my intricate and complex storylines (spoiler alert: everyone has sex with everyone and then kills each other) to introduce A Feast for Crows, the long-awaited fourth installment in my epic fantasy series! You guys are in for a treat, this one is awesome.

This book definitely wasn't quite as eventful as the previous books in the traditional sense. There weren't any huge battle sequences or weddings filled with bloodshed, but rather a lot of plotting.

This book contained two of my favorite characters, Arya and Sansa, but there weren't enough chapters about them to satisfy me. This one mainly followed Cersei and Jaime, along with quite a few side characters who we didn't see much of in the first three books.

I'm really interested to see what happens
Whew, this is a tough book to review simply because it doesn't follow on the expectations of the readers after A STORM OF SWORDS.

Now some people are already saying that the book is horrible and a great letdown and others go to the other extreme and hold faithfully that it's just as good as the previous books.

I don't feel either take is fair or accurate.

To be fair, yes, the book doesn't move like the previous books, especially a STORM OF SWORDS. There are simply not the same level of WHAM BAM

George R. R. Martin is a blowhard.

I mean that with respect, I suppose. I guess any author that got me to read over 2400 pages of his writing garners some respect, right? A smattering, maybe? I don’t know, maybe it’s because I was raised Catholic, or maybe it’s my sense of follow through or maybe just the fact that I’ve invested so much time in this damn series… whatever.

Are you kidding me? This volume should have been called A Test of Patience. Where do I even start? First, there is a conspicuous dearth of crows (as in Nightwatch or anything at or beyond the Wall). There is also little feasting but by now I've grown beyond tired of Martin's medieval menu descriptions so that's a relief. Curious about Jon Snow and The Others? Bran and that three-eyed crow? Tyrion's escape? The dragons!? Well, forget it. They don't make a single appearance. Instead we get to trud ...more

I feel like giving this book 3 stars is being harsh to my man, George Martin, but I'm trying to separate the truly great books in this series from the merely good ones.

Bottom line: fans of the series waited too long for this and therefore were in a position of being impossible to please once this finally came out. This coupled with the facts that numerous spoiler chapters had been available online for years and that George cut his original manuscript in 2 to produce this and the subsequent (as o

I was fully prepared to be disappointed by this book, for several reasons. First of all, the last book, A Storm Of Swords, ended with a very large cliffhanger and I knew that it was a cliffhanger that wasn't going to be fully explained/explored in this volume.

Additionally, I knew that in general the story was not going to feature the characters that I was most interested in (namely Daenerys, Theon, Tyrion, and especially the whole issue of Jon and the Night Watch). That being said, the volume wa

“History is a wheel, for the nature of man is fundamentally unchanging. What has happened before will perforce happen again.”

I think this may be my favorite novel in the series. Not because it was the best but because I felt so connected to the story, more than I have ever felt before while reading this series. And while I can admit that the plot was poorer in comparison with its predecessors and there weren't all of the characters we've grown accustomed to reading about, I still feel like Mr.

There’s only one problem with this book, and that’s the point of view characters. As a reader I’ve grown somewhat used to things like this:




So, when I'm just given things like this instead it’s bound to disappoint:




There are massive pacing issues with the most recent (ha! that’s a joke) two books of the series, and I mean massive. There’s a whole lot of nothing in this one. Cersei’s chapters are excruciating to read. That’s not surprising considering she is probably the least likable of character
Jason Koivu
I know "winter is coming," but this book honestly felt more like a Spring clean.

A story of such lengths as the epic A Song of Ice and Fire has to have down time and much of A Feast for Crows is down time. George R.R. Martin ties up loose ends, sets up new story lines and essentially does administrative style organization in an attempt to keep his mammoth machine rolling. He does it admirably, and yet it can't help but lack the pep, surprise and all around thrill of his previous three books.

A Feast for Crows, book four of the stellar Song of Ice and Fire saga, is widely maligned as the runt of the series to date:

Img: Runt Horse

This is partly because of the strange circumstances surrounding the book’s publication. Martin cranked out books two and three in just under two years, from February, 1999 to November, 2000. But then trouble arose. Book four grew bigger and bigger. Years passed. As the book approached 2,000 pages, Martin realized the book had to split in two. But how to do so? Instead of ju
This book was fantastic.

These books are so amazingly good. I love them. I can't wait until after I read A Dance with Dragons.

George R. R. Martin's A Feast for Crows (of the Song of Fire and Ice series) suffers from MBSS, or Middle Book in a Series Syndrome. It lacks the addictive excitement and intrigue necessary for early books and the catastrophes and closures I'm looking forward to from later books. It's just a link in the chain. My initial response to it reminds me of my initial response to J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix . I trust in the vision of the author and am certain the book is es ...more

I'm not going to write a long review on this one. Just know that I am deeply involved in the story. Fabulously creative writing. Happy about a few turn of events, deeply troubled by others, and utterly shocked by a few as well. Needless to say I must finish the series. I do love the fact that the books differ from the HBO series. Can't even imaging what's coming...
Well, other than winter. On to book 5!

AGH I'M SO TORN WHAT TO RATE THIS. Honestly it's probably 3.5. There was so much boredom and annoyance and grinding of teeth and I felt, as a whole, the book didn't feel complete. Apparently this and A Dance with Dragons were all ONE book? But it got split into two? (Thank the bookish gods.) But I still firmly believe that every and any book should feel like a completely book in itself. A Feast of Crows felt like a filler.

Simply put, the entire Song of Ice and Fire series is my favorite (topping even my beloved Gaiman). I fell in love with the series and I obsess about it in the way that some people obsess about Tolkein or Harry Potter.

In my mind, it's the best epic fantasy since Tolkein. Like Tolkein, Martin creates a real world with an extensive history filled with its own languages and cultures and songs. Tolkein's world is high fantasy with elves and magic and even the main characters aren't human. Martin's
So apparently if you have written a successful series for your 4th installment you can write about a quater of the characters introduce useless and somewhat annoying characters and be unclear about several peoples fate as if it means nothing at all.

Really..I say again REALLY?

I love the way George R R Martin tells a story but I am calling you out a wee bit on this one. Were there no editors involved in this book? In example about 75 pages were based in Dorne Re: the Viper prince's daughters.
Actual Rating: 3.5/5

I have a lot of thoughts... Which I'll share later.
Aj the Ravenous Reader
The title obviously foreshadows the theme of this book, that is death- so many dead bodies for crows to feast on- dead who are dead and dead who are still alive??? (What's up with Catelyn??? Her comeback is freaking gross!!!) Nevertheless, this sequel powerfully demands readers' attention because of course, anyone who's read the prequel of this book will NEED to read this. So even if Mr. Martin slacked off when he wrote this book, this would still have been a bestseller but, that is not the case ...more

(Bitching rant below. Avoid if you hate that sort of thing I guess. Do what you want though. I'm not your mom.)

When I began this book last month, I was surprised to see that none of the chapters focused on my favourite characters. Most of the POV characters were secondary characters or I hadn't heard of them before. It still seemed exciting, so I tried to look forward to the change. The previous book was the best in the series for me. Why couldn't this one be better?

Though it wasn't my favorite of the series, it was still an excellent read. Martin just has a way with creating a world so rich and well-imagined that it's impossible not to get sucked into it while reading.

I did miss Tyrion & Dany chapters in this one. But I came to enjoy Arya chapters a lot more here. I think her story is proving to be very interesting. I can't believe there is only 1 book left in the series that's currently available! Now I understand how people suffer in waiting for the
