A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)
This book was even harder to put down than the first. The extreme violence against women, every commoner, every character you ever like, and well...pretty much all the characters is still there, and often grating. I understand the kind of atmosphere he's trying to provoke, but it's just difficult to read about that much rape and violence, really difficult. While I'm sure the political intrigue is the main draw for most, I'm really curious about the more fantastic threats from the north and east. My fondness for Tyrion kept me interested in the intrigue for the most part in this one. The end of this book was totally unsatisfying. The beginning of the following book even has many scenes that run parallel to this one. Still I couldn't put it down and I moved straight into the following one. I'll stop after the third, since the 4th and 5th run parallel and the 5th has yet to be published.
