A Feast for Crows

I am so glad that I decided to read this series.  It is very entertaining and captures you into a whole new world.  In this fourth installment of A Song of Ice and Fire, Martin takes a different approach to writing.  Up until this point, all of the books have included all the characters and what is happening to them in real time.  For this book, Martin focuses on everyone in the south.  This includes Arya's escape from the Hound, Brienne's journey to find Sansa, Jamie and his kingsguard and Cersei's plots to rid King's landing of Margery Tyrell.  Many other story lines develop, such as characters in Dorne, Pike, and Sansa's adventures at the Vale.  Can't tell you what happens though because that would be giving away way too much of the plot ;)  This was a good book but while reading it I missed Tyrion and some of the other characters.  I started reading the next book, A Dance with Dragons, and it happens in tandem to A Feast for Crows but focuses on the characters in the north that were not showcased in A Fest for Crows. That means I can get my Tyrion fix :)
