Think it's more like they replaced someone who was somewhat recognizable in the role with someone who looks like everyone else.

I technically didn't even finish Feast For Crows. I gave up with about 200 pages left and read Tower of the Hand instead. I haven't read DWD and I won't. I'll read Tower of the Hand for the rest of series and watch the show. His writing style makes me frustrated sometimes. I don't need 10 pages describing the food on the table. This isn't 19th century Britain or France. You're not getting paid by the word bro. Move it along please...

Do yourself a solid and read the combined version of the last 2 books: http://ballofbeasts.weebly.com/download.html

The boring chapters are still boring, but the story as a whole flows so much better. Instead of someone saying "where is so and so?" and waiting 1000 pages to find out, by which time you've probably forgotten half of what was said, the logical chapter with the mentioned character follows.

Agreed. Breinne in the books is not attractive at all. She described as having coarse features, prominent crooked teeth, a wide mouth, swollen lips, and a nose that has been broken several times. Also, by this point in the books a bunch of those crooked teeth have been broken or knocked out.
