Amazing! I can't remember ever being this caught up in a story, I literally came home each day opening the book to read some more, savoring each page, trying to think ahead of the story, picking all the clues Martin left about some of the events to come. For me, reading the first three books has been the best time I've had with a book, I think they ARE classics. I haven't read yet books four and five, but do I really need to wait for the series to end to fully appreciate these three books? I don't think so (remember guys, it's all about the journey, not the destination, and boy what a journey it's been!). I hope the rest of the books fares as well as GoT, CoK and SoS, but right now I'm so invested in the characters that I just wanna know what happens to them, I find myself already missing them, so I guess I'll enjoy them nonetheless, even if they're not on the same level (as many people have said in their reviews). Anyway, I'll let you know what I think of A Feast for Crows...

Thank you so much Stephen! I needed to write a review about this book, I would really like to see more people enjoy this wonderful story as much as I do.

Yes Regina, I don't see why so many people obsess about the ending of a story, when it is just a part of it. So many movies and books nowadays rely solely on having a shocking or unexpected ending and forsake or even sacrifice the rest of the story to it. For a movie or a book to really captivate me it has to remain interesting throughout, constantly challenging me, stirring my curiosity more and more, making me savor each moment. The A Song of Ice and Fire books have accomplished that, so far.
