A Feast for Crows Book Review – Spoiler Free

A Feast For Crows by George R. R. Martin felt like more of a set-up for a bigger story than a story in itself.

I have thought before that this epic fantasy series reads more like a long book rather than several individual ones, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

This is mainly because the previous books, A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, and A Storm of Swords, while they lead into the next book seamlessly, still felt like complete entities on their own.

A Feast for Crows was an introduction to something more, rather than being a complete story on its own. That is not to say I did not like this book.

Arya’s POV was my favourite, closely followed by the POVs following the Ironborn.

Euron Greyjoy is an awesome character – the TV representation of the character is a farce I will forever hate after reading about the Crow’s Eye.

Cersei, Brienne, Sansa, and Sam: All these POVs were slow. SO slow. By the end of the book I was intrigued but getting there was boring.

Sansa is the odd one out – I still find it difficult to be interested in what might happen with her.

Cersei’s chapters were very tense though, and I did enjoy seeing the world and herself through her own eyes.

Overall, A Feast For Crows was pretty good. Still definitely worth a read because the world only gets bigger and the more George R. R. Martin Martin adds to this epic, the more I love it.

I find myself disappearing into Westeros when I read these books and I don’t think there could be any higher compliment.


No spoilers for this review – I might come back to it in the future, or possibly start writing some discussion posts on the books and characters of the series.
