↠´ A Clash of Kings Ç Download by ☆ George R.R. Martin Instead of writing a review, I m just going to post a list of the facial expressions I made while reading this book A 83% Very Good NotesSo much tension builds from uncertainty Nearly everyone is helpless, and so the resolution is always unpredictable.
WINTERFELLLLLLL obey your nerds is what i am learning.
srsly i was never going to read this series, but once i started it is like a drug and yes i watched season two before i read this book, but i am not going to wait for seasons 3 4 to read the next one, no way, because i am hooked and I MUST KNOW and if any one of you people spoils the third book for me, i am going to make one of those torture devices with the bucket, the rat, and the torch, and it is bye bye stomach for you i see now why it takes him so long to write these things this is the densest and fully realized world i have ever read martin just plants these little seeds, and they sometimes take hundreds of pages to sprout but when they do oh my word and there are so many little details, so much backstory, so many overlaps and connections, and history and s 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.
You think you know someone, and then you read the second book about her Or him Though, for the most part, the changes of the hers were exciting for me in this book Minus the most clever and entertaining character to waddle through the pages of a fantasy book, who will go unnamed so I don t spoil the fact that he lived through the first book Okay, I may have given it away a little It s not that the characters went through any unrealistic shifts it s just that Martin let us get to know them even better and we got to watch how they responded t 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 them throughout that world and by the mid point getting nearly all of them into some form of political, romantic or military intrigue Active scenes illustrated the world and put it into motion, largely through political intrigue and the build to war.
This second book takes a mallet to what the first set up, dulling and dumbing down the world and putting the majority of the You can find the full review and about this book on my blog I HAVE NO WORDS,just as the first one,perfection.
After Game of Thrones ending,with the head on the spike and the naked mother of dragons with her dragons in her body,you can imagine my level of excitement.
I recall reading this in 6 days,and I am proud about that.
For my opinion the first one was better than this,but still this one was almost as enjoyable as the first.
My favorite is Daenerys Targaryen,I just like to read about her and the cities she goes.
She is a badass hot character and you know I am a sucker for that.
The scene with Unsullied was kind of predictable,but still awesome.
Also in this one I started to like Jamie,I don t know,I just don t care about
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 the first two novels is of this type the HERO Sansa is one exception however she is a victim, and I found her perspective to be very uncomfortable But I found the tale of the novel s other non hero, barely even an anti hero, to be particularly compelling Theon Greyjoy You re the bomb, Theon.
