I was extremely excited to finally read the sequel to A Game of Thrones, which was truly excellent. I think I let some of the hype sweep me up, because this series, though good, is nowhere near as good as the Wheel of Time. ACoK took a long time to get moving, with the first 10 chapters or so used to remind us of where and who the characters are. It also seemed as if there was a lot of unnecessary... everything, in this book. Too much dialogue, character development, names of every single knight in the world. Martin's excellent writing style kept me turning pages, but not enough action occurred in the book as far as genuine plot-necessary occurences are concerned. I know Martin has said that he wants his magic to be mysterious and enigmatic, but it seems to me that he just doesn't want to have magic be a large part of the plot, he wants to write a HISTORICAL novel, not a fantasy novel, so he threw in a tad of magic to reach the large fantasy-scifi market. There is no way that this series comes close to Jordan's series. The only thing that Martin has done better is that he has created one likable villian, Tyrion, whereas all of Jordan's bad-guys are stereo-typical villians with no humanity.

I had given up on fantasy trilogies,after getting worn out by Thomas Covenant,and the like. It hasn't been since Tolkein that I read a story that was so rich and textured that I looked forward to what happened to each charactor. And there many, many charactors in this story, believe me. I keep going to the sci-fi fantasy sections of book stores, looking for the next book, without even knowing the name of the next one. This book is not to be read all at once. It is written to be savored, once piece at a time.If you want to read a great story, and have the patience, and don't get turned off by a cast of thousands (literally), then this is the book for you.

I have just beugn to read this book. In less than 50 pages I was hooked. This book os full of scheming, dasterdly charachters, capable of unthinkable acts. Charachter development is detailed and realistic. I am excited at finding another interesting series to keep me busy waiting for more "Wheel of Time" and other popular series new arrivals.

Den ersten Band von "Song of Ice and Fire" brachte mir jemand aus London mit. Seitdem kann ich nicht mehr aufhören, die weiteren Bände zu lesen. "A clash of Kings" führt die Ereignisse weiter und besonders faszinierend ist es, dass die Ereignisse aus verschiedenen Blickrichtungen erzählt werden, d.h. die Kapitel sind jeweils mit dem "Hauptdarsteller" überschrieben, dessen Geschicht weiter gesponnen wird. Viele Erzählstränge verbinden sich zu einem dichten Teppich. Farbig, plastisch und mit unvorhergesehenen Wendungen erzählt. Schlafmangel ist möglich!!!

The first book introduced a very detailed world and the rather "earthy" tone of the writing was refreshing. My question is whether this is really simply a narrative of some role-playing group's campaign? It seems that the author by some random means--perhaps dice?--decides every hundred or so pages to kill of what one thought to be a main character.
Also, for the amount of pages you would hope there would actually be more movement in the story rather than introducing yet another mildly interesting character for no apparent reason.
I truly hope that Martin hasn't bought into the Jordanesque "let's see how much I can milk this for" style of writing. It would be a shame, because the story line shows some very good flashes.

I guess no. Most publishers would not want more than a year to lapse between hardcover publication of a [potential] best-selling series. After reading this book, my guess is that George went through a difficult period in his life that delayed his writing this book AND changed its "ambience": this book is nasty, brutish, and crude--I will probably not finish this series. Accomplished craftsman that he is, the book works, but not with the 'feel' of Volume 1. I have no worries about George as a writer, but if my guess is correct, (I) hope he works through his personal problems.

Tolles Buch, aber meiner Meinung nach nicht für Leser unter 16 zu empfehlen (Gewalt und Erotikdarstellungen). Ansonsten tolle Geschichte! Extrem spannend für Fantasyfans.

A simply fantastic book. Every fan of epic fantasy should lick his fingers for this series of book's. Martin writes his story from a very human point of view. Magic is used only very sparingly, but this makes the book all the more believable.
So buy this book and enjoy!!!
