Nihilist SF: "A Clash of Kings" by George R. R. Martin
A Clash of Kings - George R.R. Martin

It shows how far fantasy has fallen as a genre if people think GOT is the high water mark, but in truth, the "rot" started with Tolkien and his world building, now everybody thinks that a few maps, a few dragons, and providing the nominal GDP of every region in your world, is enough to constitute a 'fantasy' book. I blame Tolkien for making it sound so easy...In its defense, “A Clash of Kings” is one redeeming mark is that it's not Robert Jordan's God awful “Wheel of Time” series, but that's not much of an endorsement, is it? As for “A Clash of Kings”, what do we have? A Medieval soap opera with some fantasy elements tacked on, war of the roses with dragons thrown in for good measure... There is little of metaphor, landscape, or humor. Nihilism is the keyword here, nasty brutish and short, to say nothing of the rampant misogyny that pervades this book at every turn...

So Disappointed – A Clash of Kings by George R R Martin @GRRMspeaking
A Clash of Kings - George R.R. Martin

 

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

 

Amazon  /  Audible  /  Goodreads

 

Wish I would not have waited so long to continue reading the series. So many characters I got confused. There is so much political machinations going on, that I have become bored with the brutal, crude, selfish and egotistical boy kings. Their emotions and impulses allow them to make mistakes that create some dangerous enemies that will come back to bite them. I am not sure if I like any of them and I’m not sure if they would survive anyway.

 

I checked this out from the library and I don’t know if I will continue the series or not.

A Clash of Kings - George R.R. Martin

One warning. Don't expect any happy endings in this book! This book is full of the brutality of war and all it entails.

This book has pulled me further into the world of dragons, fire and ice! I can't wait to read book 3.

A Clash of Kings - George R.R. Martin

Sleep is good, he said, and books are better. 

 

George R.R. Martin

 

August 6, 1996: A Game of Thrones was first published 21 years ago today. George R.R. Martin wrote the landmark fantasy novel (as well as its sequels) on a thirty-year-old PC using a rather ancient WordStar 4.0 word processor. He owns a separate computer for checking his email.
