I read this in 2007 and found it was missing some of the main characters! So, I thought I'd offer a warning for everyone else.
GRRM:"I know some of you may be disappointed, especially when you buy A Feast for Crows and discover that your favorite character does not appear, but given the realities I think this was the best solution... and the more I look at it, the more convinced I am that these two parallel novels, when taken together, will actually tell the story better than one big book."
It turns out, the view points are split between this volume and A Dance with Dragons. So, both should take place at the same time, just divided by character and location. July is almost here!
