Game of Thrones: Book review

Hi guys
Another thing I love to do besides cooking is read. Sadly I don't get as much time as I'd like to do it but today I finished a book I feel is worth writing about. It's called 'A Clash of Kings' and it's by George R.R. Martin

This is the second installment in his series 'A song of ice and fire'. The first one was called 'Game of Thrones' which I'm sure a lot of you have herd about due to it being adapted as a T.V. series recently. To be honest the series is what made me want to start reading them. As a rule I think that if a book has been made into a film or a series it is usually going to be a good book. 
I wanted to read the books before I watched the series so I asked for the set of books for Christmas. I finished reading the first book by new year and then started on the series. Both the book and the show are excellent. The show has just started it's second season which is why I've been in a hurry to finish the second book.

The books follow the lives of many highborn families as they fight for the throne of the fictional land of Westeros. Each chapter in the books is titled by a name of a main character and that chapter written through their eyes. The show has so far stayed very true to the books which is a massive relief and the actors and writers have done them justice. Also another reason to watch the series is for the actor Kit Harrington he plays the character Jon Snow and is in my opinion very yummy =].


I don't want to give too much away in case anyone is planning on watching the series or reading the books so I won't write about the plot in too much detail but the writer is not afraid to get his hands dirty and no character is safe. 

I would thoroughly recommend both the series and the books, especially if you are a fan of the lord of the rings series. unfortunately I have left the third book at university so I am going to have to wait until I go back tomorrow to find out what happens next but I am very excited about it. 

Has anyone else read the books or watched the series? If so what are your opinions of them?

Lots of Love
