A Clash of Kings

A Clash of Kings - George R.R. Martin I love the tv show and love to read, but I had put off reading these books because I thought they might be difficult to understand. For me, they flow easily, and I enjoy every word. I do think watching the show first helped because I know many of the characters and lands in my mind already.

Tyrion is one of my favorites on the show, but somehow I love him even more in the books. Also, somehow, I don’t hate Cersei as much So Far, but my hate for her is steadily growing. I feel more sympathy for Catelyn because the books really let the reader in her head. I didn’t realize how young many of the main characters were during these times either. Daenerys and Jon are barely teens and have both been living in separate wilds. They’ve witnessed dark magic. Arya is barely middle grade age and has killed men. Joffrey, Sansa, Bran, Robb, etc, they’re all children making decisions difficult for adults.

Obviously I loved this book and can’t wait to start the next one.
