This is no real review. Because the story is not yet done. I’m just jotting down the feeling that came after I read the last word of the fourth book.
A Feast for Crows is also a feast for the readers. Though the hunger goes unsatisfied as the book follows only the events of King’s Landing. You can tell that this is just a bridge… a setup for A Dance With Dragons, which, hopefully, looks to be the real feast.
That, however, doesn’t mean that this volume fails to delight the reader. It is beautifully written, as always, and some of the chapters really leave you biting your nails. Yes, there are no Red Weddings, Tyrion’s trail scenes, and the likes, but mayhaps GRRM never intended them to be. We are rightly impatient over the story of our favorite characters Tyrion, Daenerys, and Snow, but we must accept “A Feast…” for what it is — a well deserved pause in the saga and a build up to the moment when the winter finally comes!
Can’t wait to gobble up A Dance with Dragons!
