Review: Fortunately I never really expected to enjoy A Clash of Kings as much as I enjoyed Game of Thrones, and therefore I wasn’t that disappointed when I didn’t. I found the story to be a bit more clunky, a little more predictable, and less immersive. It is more political than the previous book, something I don’t necessarily mind, but large parts of it seemed to exist with the purpose of being a set-up for future books. Now, with all the negativity out of the way, I’ll hasten to add that Clash of Kings is still a highly enjoyable book, and I’m eager to see how the story continues from the end of it.
