A Clash of Kings - A Song of Ice and Fire, Bk 2
Author: George R. R. Martin
Time is out of joint. The summer of peace and plenty, ten years long, is drawing to a close, and the harsh, chill winter approaches like an angry beast. Two great leaders--Lord Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon--who held sway over an age of enforced peace are dead...victims of royal treachery. Now, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the ...  more »

This is the first time I've read a book of nearly a thousand pages, and wished there was more when I reached the end. I had the feeling Mr. Martin had had to cut out some bits in order to fit this book into a publishable length. It's superb writing, with each character well rounded and acting in accordence with thier motivations and beliefs. No one is bad just because they are evil, and children act like children. I can't wait to read the next volume in this series.

Robert Jordan eat your heart out. This is turning out to be the best series I have read. High Fantasy that bares all.

ACoK is a tad longer than its predecessor, and filled with even more deception, betrayal, and intrigue. I really enjoy the point-of-view changes for each chapter, as they make the book feel like a soap opera, with some scenes playing out in chronological order and some happening simultaneously with other chapters.

This is every bit as absorbing as the first. It picks up where the first left off with a few new characters and the continuation of the Starks and Lannisters. Expect more emotionally wrenching events and not much justice. There are remaining loose ends that leave us needing to read the next.

This series is engrossing, some of the characters are so lovable while others make you want to jump in the book and do them harm. It has so many twists, i can't put it down.
Terrific book and love the series!

The downside of having a series with multiple POVs: some of them are very, very, very, very, very, very boring. Furthermore, the pacing was uneven throughout: half of this very long book had gone by before I think something fairly exciting actually happened. Nevertheless, A CLASH OF KINGS is yet another astounding display of George R.R. Martin's unmatched skill at developing a world that is so complex, so full, you're willing to read more than five thousand-page-long books about it. Oh yeah, we CAN do that. Excellent.

This series has me enthusiastic to keep reading. The characters are so detailed, and you get to know each and every one so well that you feel like you'd know them in person if you were to meet. In this second book the plot has thickened and a lot of crazy things have happened. I'm excited to see what's coming next!
