Mr. Martin misses the scenes cut from "Game of Thrones" HBO series inspired by his "A Song of Ice and Fire"

“I wish we had more episodes,” he said, speaking from his home in Santa Fe, N.M. “I’d love to have 13 episodes. With 13 episodes, we could include smaller scenes that we had to cut, scenes that make the story deeper and richer.”

 

As for those missing moments, he cited a scene from the first novel, “A Game of Thrones,” that didn’t make it into Season 1. The Starks are traveling to King’s Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms, with the royal family. The sisters Sansa and Arya Stark are invited to tea and lemon cakes with Queen Cersei, but Arya wants to go hunt for rubies with the butcher’s boy. And the sisters argue about it.

 

Mr. Martin said he misses the scene because it adds texture and helps establish early on the characters of and relationship between the sisters.

A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire #4)
A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin

With A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth volume of the landmark series that has redefined imaginative fiction and stands as a modern masterpiece in the making.

After centuries of bitter strife, the seven powers dividing the land have beaten one another into an uneasy truce. But it's not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters of the Seven Kingdoms gather. Now, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—emerge from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges of the terrible times ahead. Nobles and commoners, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages, are coming together to stake their fortunes...and their lives. For at a feast for crows, many are the guests—but only a few are the survivors.

 

 

 

“Words are wind, Brienne told herself. They cannot hurt you. Let them wash over you.” 

After finished the third book in the Song of Ice and Fire series I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next and instantly started listening to the audiobook of the fourth installment. The previous book in the series brought me so much happiness with the sudden death of a certain character and I couldn't wait to find out how that would effect everything in this book.

After the events of A Storm of Swords everything in the game of thrones has changed. Stakes are higher and those fighting for the throne are more determined than ever. A Feast of Crows is told from the perspective of 12 characters and it follows the characters in the South for the majority of. A Feast of Crows takes place at the exact same time as in the next installment, A Dance of Dragons, which follows the majority of the northern and eastern characters.

I really loved A Storm of Swords and I could barely stop listening to the audiobook, hence how I listened to a 33 hour audiobook in 5 days. It was filled to the brim with complex relationships, lots of violence and action with a dash of trechery and betrayal. Everything you have come to expect from a George RR Martin book. I really couldn't stop listening to this book as I just had to know what was going to happen to my favourite characters, and even what was going to happen to the ones I hate. A great thing about George's books is that his characters are not good or bad but a mixture of the two. A Feast of Crows makes you question everything that you thought you knew about the characters and had you second guessing who the bad guy is and if any of them are really truly bad.

A Feast for Crows is a fantastic installment in an addictive series. My only issue with it is that I really missed reading about those in the north and the east, particularly Danerys. Danerys is most definitely my favourite character and the one I want to end up in power and all the way through A Feast for Crows I was constantly wondering what was happening with her and the other characters that were not the narrators in this installment.

I can't wait to continue with the series and read A Dance with Dragons and find out what was happening in the other parts of Westeros while all this was going down in the South. I will most definitely be starting it as my next audiobook.

“Most have been forgotten. Most deserve to be forgotten. The heroes will always be remembered. The best. The best and the worst. And a few who were a bit of both.”

A Feast For Crows [George R.R. Martin]
A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin

I had forgotten how long these books are!  This is one of those series that I quit reading last year, this one because they are so long and my favorite characters kept dying!  

 

I had also forgotten how much I love this world and Martin's writing.  This book was 'read' in audio but I read book 3 in ebook and I still don't know which one I like more.  The ebook took me less time to read, but the audiobooks are so well done it's worth taking longer to listen to the audio.  

 

None of my favorite characters died in this book, so I'm expecting them all to die in the next one. There's always so much going on in these books that I don't even try to write a well thought out review, since I know that would be impossible.  I listened to the first part of this book almost two weeks ago., so I'm not really sure how much of that part I really remember.

 

I felt a little lost at first, since it's been so long since I read the third book in this series.  There are so many people to keep up with, although I did remember everyone that has a POV in this book, I just forgot about a lot of the other characters.

Day 2: Book evoking the Seven Deadly Sins (Irish Punk)
A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin

I have to go with this series again. It just has it all.

 

Gluttony - oh yes, they enjoy eating in this book. Lots of wine, and all sorts of foods.

Fornication - there is sex. Not as much as in the movie version, but there is definitely some.

Greed - everyone wants something. Mostly money and power.

Pride - I can't think of one character who isn't proud. Maybe the monk. I think.

Despair - I think the one despairing mostly is me, because I just have no idea how anyone is going to survive the winter. Sam does despair a lot as well.

Wrath - Cersei comes to mind. Now that woman has a lot of anger, and she doesn't let it get pent up.

Vanity - plenty of that going around as well.

Sloth - perhaps this is the sin that is in the book the least. Everyone is very busy. Perhaps the only lazy person is the little king, but he's just a kid.
