Cmdr Shepard's favourite books on the Citadel

I was a much more avid reader in my youth... before the days of PCs and gaming consoles. Now I find myself working in a job filled with long, slow periods of extreme boredom (punctuated by brief spells of intense excitement) which gives me a lot of time to pick up my reading again.

The only thing that I curse is my near-eidetic memory when it comes to books that I have read which can ruin my future enjoyment and re-reading of many of my favourite books (I tend to skip the 'slow, boring bits'). As a result I find myself mentally forcing myself to read each page slowly and carefully whenever I re-read a book to prevent myself from jumping forward to the more exciting parts that I remember.

A Clash of Kings - George R.R. Martin Whilst I have marked this book as 'Read', I have to admit I never actually finished it. I found it tedious and boring, never really grabbing my attention. Like the first, not even the teleseries with Sean Bean sparked enough interest to pick up the book and try again.

I'm not going to post a gigantic 'wall-of-text' review of this book, because there are others who have already done a far better job than I could.

If you liked the book, good for you. I did not, and it's as simple as that.
