Abner Marsh, a struggling riverboat captain, suspects that somethings amiss when he is approached by a wealthy aristocrat with a lucrative offer. The hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York doesnt care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marshs dilapidated fleet; nor does he care that he wont earn back his investment in a decade. Yorks reasons for traversing the powerful Mississippi are to be none of Marshs concernno matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious Yorks actions may prove. Not until the maiden voyage of Fevre Dream does Marsh realize that he has joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmareand humankinds most impossible dream.… (mere)

The only other GRRM books I've read are the ASOIAF series and I've watched the episode of The Outer Limits that he wrote called Sandkings. I liked the TV show, loved the first three ASOIAF books and really didn't care for the last two.

Given my rather limited experience and mixed feelings about his work, I went into Fevre Dream with fairly middling expectations and I would say they were met absolutely.

I love GRRMs descriptions of the setting. I knew literally zero about paddleboats before I started reading and by the end I felt like I knew enough. The ending was rather disappointing with much of the action happening off-screen (off-page?) and quickly described to us by one of the characters. Given the violence in ASOIAF, I was expecting more from this book. There's a bit of blood and a baby has its hand cut off, but I really wanted to see some vampires let loose and I just didn't get that.

Characters were a mixed bad. Abner and Joshua were pretty well fleshed out, but everyone else was paper thin. The only female character with any time given to her was just in love with Joshua and really not much else.

3 stars at a push. ( )

En 1857, la cuenca del Misisipi bulle de actividad: los vapores señorean sus aguas en feroz competencia. Cuando Joshua York le ofrece sacar a flote su naviera a cambio de unas pocas condiciones, sencillas aunque misteriosas, el capitán Marsh ve realizado su sueño: ser el patrón del vapor más rápido del río. Pero los sueños de ambos se verán infiltrados por una pesadilla que anegará de sangre los fondeaderos.
