A Feast for Crows
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 2:01 pm

For those who care, George R. R. Martin’s A Feast for Crows goes on sale today.

The Song of Fire and Ice series is perhaps the best fantasy series I have ever read, and hence am pleased that the current volume is finally completed. I am even tempted to go out and buy it, even though I have plenty of reading material on hand.

Of course, if Bantam wants to send me a review copy…

I will say that the online excerpt isn’t really awe-inspiring. If you haven’t read A Game of Thrones and you like fantasy, you must go get it now.

I also noticed that the new Wheel of Time book is in stores as well.

  1. Knife of Dreams is reportedly, and so far in my first 200-odd pages estimation, more the kind of book we’ve been waiting for than, say, every one since Lord of Chaos.

    Oddly, my sister loaned me the first Martin book and I didn’t get far without being bored to tears and putting it down. Considering some of what I have slogged through in the past, that’s pretty sad. Perhaps I’ll try again someday.

    In fact, the last book I can remember doing the same with was Lord Foul’s Bane, to the point where I assumed the author wasn’t very good, leading a ftriend to buy me a copy of The Mirror of Her Dreams to prove me wrong.

  2. Yes, I’m getting my copy throught the SF book club. Hopefully I’ll have it sometime next week. It is a fantastic series and, in my opinion, it’s the best stuff in the fantasy genre right now. Much better than the WoT stuff I’d say.

  3. I have resisted buying A Feast for Crows this week. I am trying to hold out and get it Friday night to read over a few days of business travel.

    I have finished Knife of Dreams. In some ways, it has been what many readers have been hoping for. It rapidly advances the plot, ties up a number of storylines, and gives you a sense that the Last Battle is right around the corner. The negatives included a feeling that the book was rushed in both the editing and also the vibe it gives. It felt like 2 books in one. All in all a great read.

    I cannot wait to read A Feast for Crows. It will be nice to read something from Martin aside from his political musings on his website…
