A Feast For Crows / Book Review

Good morning sunshines!
Well not so shinny today, but still, after two free days at work, back to reality, but with a positive vibe, specially since this horrible flu is leaving my poor body! There's a couple of things that i want to share with you, but all with time and in another post, today is for books, well, one book in particular.
My relationship with Mr. George R. R. Martin, is a though one, a love/hate kind of relationship, probably is the same for you if you've been caught in the Game Of Thrones heaven/hell.
For one side, we have these enormous books, like  1000 pages per book!, and then we have all those wonderful characters, but here's the catch, never, ever get attached to one of them because you never know when they're going to die.-Yes, still mourning Eddard Stark and Rob and his poor Grey Wind.-.
I read the other books like two years ago, and finally after a year of finishing book 3, last month, I decided to be brave and read book 4, A Feast for Crows, and watch once more season 1 and 2 of the tv show. I still have to make my season 3 marathon, but i guess i still have time since season 4 comes in April. But back to the point, A Feast for Crows.

With A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth volume of the landmark series that has redefined imaginative fiction and stands as a modern masterpiece in the making.

After centuries of bitter strife, the seven powers dividing the land have beaten one another into an uneasy truce. But it's not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters of the Seven Kingdoms gather. Now, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—emerge from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges of the terrible times ahead. Nobles and commoners, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages, are coming together to stake their fortunes...and their lives. For at a feast for crows, many are the guests—but only a few are the survivors

Ok, now let us talk about it. For some, book 4 could be a little disappointing since our dearest Daeneryes is only mentioned, but we don't read more about her, and not about Jon Snow more than Sam's point of view almost at the beginning of his journey. Or awesome Tyrion, who by the way is one of my favorite characters.
But on the other hand, we have Cersei's point of view, which even when all her wickedness, she's an amazing character, even when you hate her so much, she's just great. And of course we have the love of my life Jaime Lannister, and what about Arya, that girl is completely awesome!.
And now we finally have the Dorme stories, with the snakes sisters, which i'm pretty sure would have an important role on the story. I totally enjoyed those few moments in Dorme.
Brianne the beauty is another lovable character that you can't help but want to read more and more about it.
The book is another master piece by Mr. Martin, and certainly I've been reading book 5 this year, even when there's no release date for book 6, but once you are involved once more with the story, you simply can't stop.
Highly recommend the whole saga, and the tv show too.
