1 star reviews totally unfair.,
This review is from: A Dance With Dragons: Part 2 After the Feast (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 5) (Paperback)First thing to say is that this a good book. All these 1 star reviews are a result of the foolishness of these people who bought a book they already owned because they didn't bother to read the title. Rather than a review a book, they've reviewed their own ability to make Amazon purchases.
That aside, I love the series and was so excited to read this book. It lived up to my expectations. My only grievance is that there doesn't seem to be an end in sight!

Foolishness? Pull your head in - the book was unequivocally touted and offered for pre-order as the new title in the series, and many like me pre-ordered on that basis, and were similarly disappointed when they received something that they already owned. Amazon have acknowledged their error (with no prompting from me) and offered a refund.

I agree with you, I was sent an email stating it was a new and awaited edition, only to find it was word for word the same.. How Mr. B can say people who bought it were foolish and that it is a good book is deluding himself, it is as always will be a copy of book 1. misrepresentation on behalf of the publisher and amazon.

yeh what has been commented is true it was advertised as the next book not the last book split into two parts for the paperback i don't know who screwed up the advertising or understand why they split it up in the first place but the reviews on here aren't just about the books storyline they can be of the packaging, quality of the books manufacture etc.
so for calling people foolish for believing amazon is pretty insulting as you obviously don't know all the facts and are just throwing out your pretty stupid opinion on it.

Mr. B says:
They did they exact same thing for Storm of Swords and that didn't cause any problems. This is all irrelevant anyway as the reviews should be for content rather than the transaction!

... agreed, but when the "content" of that transaction is a rehash explicitly advertised by Amazon as new product, that content gets rated on its merits. We're not talking about a late delivery, or an overcharge, or any of the myriad other transactional factors that often garner poor reviews when the actual product itself is fine. The poor reviews were entirely warranted, in my view.
