Is it just me or…

Has anyone suffered the same with Mr. R. R. Martin?

I read his first three books in the Song of Ice and Fire series in 2006 and loved them, having all three in my top five books of that year, with A Storm of Swords at number one.

I eventually got around to starting book four: A Feast for Crows, a couple of weeks ago and I am bored stupid. Unfortunately some of this is due to memory loss when certain characters are mentioned but I think a great deal is to do with him shifting the focus of characters to those I am not too interested in. It seems that book four is a real in between kind of book, creating a bridge between three and five.

I am so struggling to get through it and more than once have closed the book mid-chapter, something I very rarely do.

Anyone else having/had this problem with book four or is it indeed just me?
