Long-awaited doesn't begin to describe this fourth installment in bestseller Martin's staggeringly epic Song of Ice and Fire. Speculation has run rampant since the previous entry, A Storm of Swords, appeared in 2000, and Feast teases at the important questions but offers few solid answers. As the book begins, Brienne of Tarth is looking for Lady Catelyn's daughters, Queen Cersei is losing her mind and Arya Stark is training with the Faceless Men of Braavos; all three wind up in cliffhangers that would do justice to any soap opera. Meanwhile, other familiar faces—notably Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen—are glaringly absent though promised to return in book five. Martin's Web site explains that Feast and the forthcoming A Dance of Dragons were written as one book and split after they grew too big for one volume, and it shows. This is not Act I Scene 4 but Act II Scene 1, laying groundwork more than advancing the plot, and it sorely misses its other half. The slim pickings here are tasty, but in no way satisfying. (Nov.)

Even though most of the main characters are absent from this one, it's still as engrossing(possibly more) as the others. It was never easy to out it down and do other stuff.Published 2 hours ago by Vipul Sharma
Creative and ingenious. Something different...
A book, upon ending brings sadness until you remember that there is another one following :). All will be well...for now,
My least favorite so far, it has thirty words when five would do. It told the stories of my least favorite characters.Published 2 days ago by Robert Heaslet

Better than the HBO series and longer-lasting for trips down range here in Afghanistan. Gets me far from the situation here!Published 5 days ago by Lance Armbruster
