The dust begins to settle.
Feast of Crows is perhaps the saddest book in the series, as characters struggle to recover from the war. On the battlefield the victors are clearly the Lannisters
, along with numerous allies, but now the victors have to rebuild and replenish before the long winter arrives.
Feast of Crows is not the longest book in the series, but it can feel that way. In fact it’s literally half the story, with the events of Dance with Dragons occurring simultaneously. The book includes 10 new perspectives, and only 4 old ones; saving Tyrion, Daenerys, and Jon Snow for the next volume.
Cersei receives the lion’s share as she sets the stage for her regency, but audiences may find it hard to empathize with someone so arrogant and selfish.
Brienne of Tarth continues her quest for the Stark girls, but the audience already knows where they are, leaving us to only wonder how Brienne herself will fair at the end of her journey.
The book is full of new perspectives, giving audiences a greater understanding of the Iron Born Greyjoys, and the family Martell from the lands of Dorne, who demonstrate the merit of “staying out of it”.
The story is rich with background information about the various places in Westeros and Esos, but the various chapters read more like short stories in an anthology. The book functions as a transition, resolving the aftermath of the previous books and setting the stage for the climactic conclusion in Winds of Winter and Dream of Spring.

Best book ever.

Excellent read. Martin keeps the movement by constantly shifting through a myriad of developing interweaving storylines.

Slow starting book. I got so bored with it after about 300 pages that I put it down for about a year. Picked it back up recently and finished it up farely quick as the last part of the book is excellent in my opinion. All my favorite characters are in the next book but reading this one added several more people to my favorite characters list. Overall a great book and can't wait to see what's happening outside of King's Landing in the next book!

What a disappointment! I was engrossed by the first three books of the "Song of Fire and Ice" series but this book is a drag. The most interesting characters and story plots have been left out and so many minor characters come and go that it is difficult to keep them straight. He gets bogged down in details of side plots that he seemed to forget his central plots. Really? No Dany, no dragons, no Tyrion, he barely even mentions the story at the wall. You should skip this book in the series and go right to the next book.

A feast for crows review
Pretty short compare to the last book. A host of new characters make it a little harder to keep up: found myself looking online for some of these new faces. I like where it is going.
