I don't really have much to say except that this is a fantastic piece of literature and I highly recommend that you buy it. It is book 4 (Not counting 2 parters) in the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series and is my favourite so far. Ill keep the spoilers at the minimum and just say that this focuses mainly on politics and family, therefore not the heat of battle. If you're looking for some action/adventure book then this is probably not going to be your favourite out of the series, however it provides a more realistic look at the great universe that Martin has created, with things such as religion and other intricate details being highlighted which we haven't really seen before in previous books in the series. A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons do not chronologically follow, and instead each book focuses on different characters in different places until the times crossover later on in Dance, so if you wanted Jon and Danaerys then you're out of luck because Feast is centred on King's Landing, The Vale, The Iron Islands, and Dorne.

Overall, I couldn't recommend this book more. I bought A Dance with Dragons immediately after finishing it because I didn't want the book to end. Buy it.

i read the other edition of this book and found it very enjoyable. we finally get an insight into some of the other major characters in this colossal epic tale, the chief one being cersi lannister who has no redeeming qualities compared to the tv version who is a trife more sympathetic- jamie lannister and brienne of tarth. we meet other characters from the southern dornish realm such as doran martell, arienne martell and areo hotah. I had to read the book twice as many details and characters were new and you can easily lose track but the key is to read each book in the series quickly without too much time elapsing between them as you forget the main plot lines and characters and secondary characters who later become important. although many fans say this a slow book, i felt otherwise. it had the intrigues and cunning political gamesmanship that makes its fantasy mediaeval history tantalising to read. my interest in this series is increased as a result because the plots don't reveal themselves so easily [some may concur] so in a way you are reading a mystery tale too. A Song of Ice and Fire (5) - A Dance With Dragons: Part 1 Dreams and Dust

Having hooked us with 3 pretty decent previous books I, along with countless others no doubt, waited with baited breath for this latest installment. Disappointing doesn't even come close to it. Half of the characters from the previous books don't appear in it and the author's penchant for killing off main characters, which was kind of refreshing to begin with, is now a case of just waiting to see how and when they are going to die. I will have to buy the next book in the hope that I will at least see how this finishes - but will wait for the paperback and not pre-order it. Only buy this if you have read the other books and actually care about how it ends!!
