Review of 'A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 2)' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

A Clash of Kings est le deuxième volume de la saga « A Song of Ice and Fire » de George R.R. Martin. Publié en 1998, deux ans après A Game of Thrones, il reprend le récit là où il avait été interrompu à la fin du premier volume. Difficile de parler de ce roman sans évoquer l'histoire du premier, je préviens tout de suite que ce billet risque de dévoiler des éléments majeurs du premier roman : j'invite donc ceux qui n'ont pas encore lu A Game of Thrones et ont l'intention de le lire à ne pas poursuivre la lecture de cet avis.

Après la mort du roi Robert Barathéon et l'exécution d'Eddard Stark sur les ordres du jeune roi Joffrey, héritier de Robert mais en réalité le fruit de entre la reine Cersei et de son frère Jaime Lannister, les Sept Royaumes sont au bord de la …

Review of 'A Clash of Kings' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

After reading the entire Song of Ice and Fire series in the last few months I wanted to revisit Clash of Kings in anticipation of the HBO TV show returning and I was able to appreciate this book so much more than on my original reading. The characters and stories that are set up in this instalment affects all books after it, while dropping a few hints as to where some characters will end up. This book all leads up to the "kings clashing" but so much more happens outside of Kings Landing and the battle for the Iron Throne that make this book so entertaining.

The introduction of new characters and families may be off putting but they are all integral in the larger part of the story as this book is just a great read.

Review of 'A Clash of Kings' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

I'm really enjoying this series. This book was along the lines of a "dark second movement," but it's clear (even if you didn't know there are more than three books) that not everything can be resolved in a third novel. Martin's style makes you want to shout out at characters when they're being dumb and to cheer with them when they succeed.

and yes. the. Imp. Rocks.
