Yeah I expected to hate Feast because everyone told me how shitty and boring it was but I actually really, really enjoyed it. So.
I like Feast a lot! A lot of Jaime POV chapters, Brienne (one of my favorite characters) gets added to the POV roster, some really illuminating stuff about Cersei, Arya’s in it, we finally get to see a little bit of Dorne, lots of weird Iron Islands world-building stuff, as well as the introduction of Victarion Greyjoy, maybe Westeros’s biggest hardass (though I suppose most of his finer moments don’t occur until A Dance with Dragons), and the way it’s bookended by a prologue and an epilogue in Oldtown that creepily hint at at least two conspiracies that none of the other characters are aware of. It’s really solid stuff, even without Tyrion, Jon, and Dany.
