A Clash of Kings
I am really loving these books. Mucho thanks to The Wife. I will have to give her a "thank-you" ass grab next time I see her. Ok, ok, I just want to grope her fine behind so sue me. Seriously though these books are a fun read. Every day almost I have someone come up to me and say "OMG! Your reading those books! I hate those books!".
I think it comes down to the fact that we can not stand books that have any kind of realistic side to them. We want the whole midget finds ring and defeats great evil power love love feel good story. While I am a big fan of midget heroes like Iggy, I also am a HUGE fan of realistic stories. I love when you kill my favorite character. Not because I wanted them to die but because you did your job, you were a good enough writer to make me love this fake person, and then you had the balls to destroy them and make me sad. I find it very refreshing. Movies are the same way. ET always has to go home instead of getting his ass cut up on the operating table. Fantasy is good, and a little cold reality is good too, it is nice to have a mix of things to enjoy.
