George R.R. Martin ´ A Feast for Crows KINDLE Ere Others threaten the Wall apprentice Maester Samwell Tarly brings a mysterious babe in arms to the CitadelAgainst a backdrop of incest and fratricide alchemy and murder victory will go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel and the coldest hearts I'm not uite sure what happened hereAs others have mentioned Martin slows the pace of the story down considerably in this fourth installment of A Song of Ice and Fire ostensibly writing this as the first half of a two book volume with a 3 5 year production time on each As such the book is by necessity filled with unresolved storylines AWOL main characters and lengthy travelogues where nothing of importance happens Of course this draws the inevitable comparisons to another famous fantasy series that started strong and became a sluggish irritating morass something to do with wheels and time as I recall The pace isn't really the problem here though as the story still stands on its own two legs The problem is the writingThough the first three books were extraordinarily well written as a whole one could never classify Martin's prose as elegant In this book he takes three steps backward for some reason and sounds almost amateurish in some chapters The book is filled with phrases and sentences that are awkward clichéd and sometimes downright hackneyed Martin's prose may typically be spare and to the point but I never audibly groaned while reading the first three booksOne of the biggest problems with this is Martin's sudden inclusion of collouialisms that so far as I can tell never existed in the books before this one Coz's nuncles and valonars abound even though we've never read any character use these turns of phrase before and be prepared to hear groats referenced multiple times in a single chapter This doesn't only present a continuity problem for those of us wondering why these dialect oddities are so suddenly commonplace Martin seems to have run out of patience for phrasing things differently so the exact same idiom often gets used ad nauseum I was weary of these invented clichés before I even truly understood what they meantBy now fans of the series thus far are used to the disturbing ubiuity of rape in Martin's world but even that loses what little subtlety it had in this book with at least two characters being described as needing a hard raping another example of redundancy in Martin's writing did that expression really need to be used twice in one book? The consensual sexuality devolves in this book as well; Martin uses strange fixations and blunt force descriptions the comparison of female private parts to a swamp was the high point for me as it were which make them seem almost bizarre and therefore a lot gratuitous than they were in the first three booksI gave it two stars instead of one because the standout elements of this series are still evident in A Feast For Crows despite Martin's apparent attempt to sabotage them with clumsy writing The characters are multidimensional unpredictable and well developed and the overarching story is fascinating enough to keep me turning pages However I am genuinely concerned about the direction of this series which has heretofore been my favorite fantasy series and often recommended to friends I don't know what's going on with Martin's writing but I truly hope the next book returns to the caliber of the first thre
