A Feast for Crows has been my least favorite book in A Song of Ice and Fire thus far. I recall being almost 700 pages into this novel and I literally said to myself “Nothing majored has happened to move the story forward..”. Even worse, their wasn’t much content regarding some of the main characters in the entire saga! Which to be fair, it wasn’t until I almost finished reading the book when I saw George R.R. Martin’s note regarding why their wasn’t much content regarding Jon Snow, Tyrion, and Daenerys and having to break up the novel into two. This gave me an entirely different perspective to this novel.
In this book the notion of religion, and the different types thereof is a really prevalent. We get to read more about the different religions in this fictional world and the mythologies behind them and how it shapes the different cultures within this world. Some of our heroes take new identities. Finally, as to be expected, we get to read of new locations in the world of A Song of Ice and Fire that we haven’t been before.
Having read George R.R. Martin’s brilliant first three books in this series, gives me excitement that this book was just a mere setup to what will be the epic events that will be following in the next novel A Dance with Dragons.
