For some reason I wasn't that enthusiastic about the fourth instalment in this otherwise magnificent fantasy series. It took me a long time to find myself interested in the stories of the newly proposed main characters and felt that there was a lot of talking and thinking but little acting in the story.
At the end however, Martin explained that the next book will cover the same time period but from the perspective of the characters we have got to love or hate in the previous books, which makes me really looking forward to devour it.
Nevertheless, A Feast for Crows cannot get more than three stars from me. I liked it, it was good, but after the third book which is absolutely brilliant, it felt too often as a disappointment.
I'm still a great fan however. :-)
