There were two GRRM paperbacks released yesterday: the two parts of the 5th title in the series "A Dance with Dragons". Part 1 is "Dreams and Dust" (white cover), and Part 2 is "After the Feast" (black cover).
*This* is Part 1.
There was also a Kindle edition of all 5 titles (which corresponds to 7 paperbacks, since titles 3 & 5 were issued as two parts each in paperback)
I am as totally confused as th first contributor to this discussio. I read and thoroughly enjoyed the first 4 books. Received a kindle at Christmas and bought what I thought was part 1 of book five dance with dragons but wonder if I actually got part 2. Can someone please just write the first few words of first chapter and precis of plot for me to be able to check what I actually received, I think I actually received book2 but agree with the general comments. However, having watched a couple of episodes on sky atlantic, inmy opinion the televised version cheapens the book
