Song of Ice And Fire Series #2: A Clash of Kings: Book Review

Author: George R. R. Martin

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, # 2)

Book Blurb:

The Seven Kingdoms of Westeros are plagued by civil war, while the Night’s Watch mounts a reconnaissance force to investigate the mysterious people known as wildlings. Meanwhile Daenerys Targaryen continues her quest to return to and conquer the Seven Kingdoms. All signs are foreshadowing a terrible disaster that is to come.

Review:

This is the Second book of the Song Of Ice And Fire Series (Review of Part one here)

The plot is really taking off, there are much more details in this book than the previous one. We come to know about the history and the different religions and what each religion signifies.

The war has finally started, which makes this story much darker than the first part. Everyone calls themselves the King, and nobody gives a damn about the people.

The characterization has strengthened, we know more things about the old characters. In this book Danny, Tyrion, Catelyn and Arya have the major changes in their lives and are the most interesting to read about.

The book is also converted into the season two of the ‘Game of Thrones’ series, but I preferred the book story to the TV adaptation, as I felt that the adaptation had too much unnecessary objectification of females. The book portrays both genders equally, and the concept of modesty is tested equally for both males and females, but the TV version just ignores the male parts and multiplies the female shots. In the book, there is nudity, but it makes sense, like the character (both males and females) have just gotten up, and receives some news or needs to do something that is much more important than clothes, but that is not the case in the TV version.

Overall I am loving reading the series, and have already gotten all the books!! Looking forward to read them all.

Check out the trailer for this book series:
