Anyone who's come from a family with multiple siblings can understand. While Robert rightly won the six kingdoms (with Stannis' help), he got a small island kingdom, a wife he's wed for political reasons, and has gotten passed on another kingdom. Plus HAVE YOU SEEN HIS WIFE?!! The description of a sharp-tonged homely woman with big ears and a growing mustache is enough to make you miserable. Donal Noye nailed the three brothers perfectly - "Robert was pure steel. Stannis was iron - black and hard and strong, but brittle the way iron gets. He'll break before he bends. And Renly, that one, he's copper. Bright and shiny and pretty to look at but not worth all that much at the end of the day." (less)

This isn’t going to be a cutesy review. I am well into the third book. I fear that if I don’t blurt out my thoughts about this one soon, then all the books in the series are going to meld together in my memory. Here are my three main impressions:

1. Bleak, dreary, and dismal

Don’t expect any happiness in this book. Martin is merciless with his characters. And if you do see a bright light, don’t trust it. One character learned she won’t have to marry an abusive, horrible guy. She and I were elated.

Instead of writing a review, I'm just going to post a list of the facial expressions I made while reading this book:



















However... I feel this one most accurately sums up A Clash of Kings:

It was right about at the beginning of George R. R. Martin’s A Clash of Kings, the second book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, that I admitted to myself that I wanted to quit my job and everything else in my life so I could stay home and read all day. I resisted the urge. I’m still not quite sure if I made the right decision.

Notes: So much tension builds from uncertainty. Nearly everyone is helpless, and so the resolution is always unpredictable.

If long Fantasy stories have fundamental rules, they probably go like this: 1) create a rich world, 2) put interesting characters in it, and 3) mix up some sequence of interesting things happening around them, happening to them, and being done by them. Martin’s first novel in this series, A Game of Thrones, fulfilled all three swimmingly. He forged one of the deepest Fantasy realms since Tolkien, with a mythology, culture and history. He spun characters of a few key families and then scattering ...more

I freaking finished it! I have to admit I have watched, well own the boxsets, of all the shows up to the current one. I can't watch is because I don't have HBO! But I digress. There really isn't much more that I can say that hasn't already been said etc and so on. I will just add a few excerpts and some pictures and some thoughts. That stuff.

I love Jon Snow It seems like he didn't have much in the book. A few of the characters I love didn't have a lot of stuff going on in this book. But

Everyone seems to agree that George R.R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire are titans in the genre of Epic Fantasy. True, true.

Everyone also seems to agree that the best characters are Tyrion, Arya, and Jon Snow. They are indeed wondrous characters. They are heroes. They fail many times, but in a way they are infallible: they are so incredibly sympathetic, they are always trying to do the right thing, they have kindness & empathy & bravery & loyalty. In fact nearly every voice in th
Whew! Another one down. These have got to be some of the longest audiobooks that I've ever listened to. Yet, despite the length, I cannot pull myself away from this series. I am completely hooked on this sordid and gory saga.

The second book in the series, 'A Clash of Kings' picks up the story and submerges readers in action and adventure. With all of the new kings coming forward to lay claim to different lands and all of the battles, I found myself again, lost at times. There are so many moving

This is the Imp’s hour; this is the Imp’s book. Forget about Dany, and forget about Jon Snow because this is the book where we get to see the true quality of Tyrion Lannister.



Tyrion is my favourite character in this series, so I’m somewhat biased in my review. For me, he is the most unique, and original, character that George R.R Martin has written. He is wise beyond his years and has developed an acute perception of things; he knows his own place in the world and he knows exactly what it is. I

“Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them.”

So. Many. Pages. But I did it! It was a great read, but less satisfying than A Game of Thrones . I'm not entirely sure why, but I think the many Kings and their battles were a little tiring.

So here are the many POVs, starting with the chapters I liked the most down to the ones I didn't:

Tyrion - Unexpected turns, witty and intruiging
Daenerys - New unknown lands and strange magic, dragons!
Arya - Danger, Jaqen H'ghar, and many different faces

While reading A Clash of Kings for the second time, it struck me that George R.R. Martin makes writing fantasy seem insultingly effortless. At first glance, Martin hardly bothers to do more than sketch his characters, yet they become legends so quickly.

For example, Quorin Halfhand is a brother in the Night's Watch. He eats an egg and has perhaps five lines, but he is a character that readers will find difficult to forget. Why is he called "halfhand?" Well, he lost all but the thumb and an index

"Power resides where men believe it resides. No more and no less."

If A Game of Thrones was the introduction to the characters, setting the scene for the later trials and conflicts; then A Clash of Kings is the angrier, battle fuelled brother.

Four men strive to take the Iron Throne from the newest King currently sat on it. All the while Daenerys is over in the east with her Khalasar looking for ships and growing more famous as the Mother of Dragons day by day.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a series of books. When I was a kid, my dad read The Hardy Boys before my brother and I went to sleep. That was a nice bedtime ritual; so nice we never had the heart to tell him The Hardy Boys sucked. A little bit later on, I worked my way through The Berenstain Bears, which taught me not to watch too much T.V., get greedy, or talk to strangers. Oddly enough, it taught me to trust bears, which is probably not the best message to impart to an impressionable c ...more

George R.R. Martin demonstrates in Clash of Kings, his second Song of Ice and Fire novel, that he is the American J.R.R. Tolkien.

Raymond Richard, born in New Jersey, differs from Ronald Reuel, born in what is now South Africa, in many ways, but their fantastic world building is what puts them in a class with few others. If any.

While Tolkien’s Middle Earth is more poetic and his language more lyric, Martin’s Westeros and Essos is more adult (by far), and with more graphic violence and sex. More m

"Kill your darlings" is a popular piece of advice given in creative writing classes - it's the concept that you shouldn't ever be afraid to take drastic and destructive action on your precious baby of a novel in order to move the plot forward or improve the story. George RR Martin should be held up as the gold standard of this rule, since his books might as well come labeled with a giant "Don't Get Too Attached" warning. It isn't just major and beloved characters (Eddard Stark, you will be aveng ...more
I know what you're thinking... "Only 4 stars??!" Yeah. I shall tell you why.

First, because getting to the halfway mark of this book took me 11 days. In my edition, which was 807 pages of book, that's about 400 pages. I read more than half that just today, so 11 days is a LONG time for me to get into a story.

Secondly, because so much of this book felt like set up and maneuverings and I was ready for stuff to happen! A Game of Thrones had me on the edge of my seat almost from the word "go", and

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2), George R.R. Martin
A Clash of Kings is the second novel in A Song of Ice and Fire, an epic fantasy series by American author George R. R. Martin expected to consist of seven volumes. It was first published on 16 November 1998 in the United Kingdom. Like its predecessor, A Game of Thrones, it won the Locus Award (in 1999) for Best Novel and was nominated for the Nebula Award (also in 1999) for best novel.

This might be my favorite book in the entire series. If the first book is more of an introduction to George Martin's cruel world, A CLASH OF KINGS is a straight up feats of nastiness (and goodiness because, you know, the books is perfect).

Shit starts to go down really fast (or as fast as it can go for a 800 pages book). We see Arya starting to become a badass, Tyrion being just as badass as before, Daenerys becoming a badass b**ch and, my favorite, Robb being the one to rule them all. So overall

There are two new characters: Davos Seaworth and Theon Greyjoy.

I like this book but personally, I prefer the first book, 'A Game of Thrones' than this book.

A Clash of Kings is my least favourite book of A Song of Ice and Fire.

If the first book, A Game of Thrones felt to me a little like stepping into an iron maiden, its sequel A Clash of Kings felt like slipping on a well-smithied gauntlet. Ooooh yeah...feel it.

The problem with the first book was that I felt poked and prodded with a 101 different characters, all new to me and all with their own disparate agendas. It took me half the book just to get the names straight and it's a huge honkin' book! But with A Clash of Kings there aren't nearly as many new characters a
