My copy of "A Clash of Kings"

When I ordered it on Friday afternoon, it wasn't dispatched until Wednesday. I got it in post on Monday the following week. My copy's front and last page were folded, and there are some creases on the spine. The letters get smeared on some pages, but that is just poor print quality. I bought "A Game of Thrones" in a book store, by the same publisher, and the letters got smeared there too. I haven't read the whole book yet, but whoever likes the tv show or the first book in the series will read it regardless. So far, I think it is weaker than it's prequel.show more
