While ASOS is my favorite book, I also enjoyed AFFC. Especially the Dorne storyline, Cersei’s inner monologues (oh how I laughed!); and, of course, her downward spiral. It was also nice reading about some of Brienne’s backstory (although a bit sad at times).
It’s a good listen
the least favorite out of all. but still a great series.
This is the most underrated and underappreciated books in the series!! Jamie is the man, and so is Roy who is gonna read the last 2 books ?
When I pause the book for like +5hours it forgets the spot I paused it to. Then the next time I listen to the book I need to find the spot where I left of, which was usually like +/- 2mins.
The darkest book in the series yet. The tone is dark, as GRRM takes the reader through war-torn Westeros. Lots of character development, and dynamic shifts. I’ve read through ASOIAF four times now, and I keep on finding more details and intrigue in A Feast For Crows.
Fantastic writing. The narration was great, in a vacuum. However, comparing his work on this book to the previous three left much to be desired. Changing the pronunciation and voices was extremely disappointing. Characters you had come to know know felt different and strange. The variation between books was very disappointing.
The series of books is excellent, but these chapters are long and boring without much pertinent action in the story line. It was a chore to finish this book.
Definitely the slowest paced book in the series so far. I found myself groaning when being dragged away from more interesting parts of the book to hear yet another chapter about Cersei’s escapades, or Dornish politics that were thankfully omitted from the television series. But far worse than that was the narrating. How does Roy Dotrice possibly forget the voices and pronunciations he’s used for a cumulative 100 hours or so in previous books? In some cases he would forget to change his voice so it sounded like one character was talking to himself. In other cases, voices for the same characters would change so drastically (even from chapter to chapter) that they didn’t even fit the character anymore. Very bizarre...I’m hoping he doesn’t narrate the next installment but I think I’ll be disappointed there.
