Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Jonathan Safran Foer
A Clash of Kings - George R.R. Martin I don't recall having read a book where the reader can be compelled to feel for, support and empathize with two or more characters who have goals that are divergent, conflicting and might require the annihilation of the other. The best thing about the series for me so far has been the way Martin is able to pull me into the characters and make feel for their struggle; the second thing he does is pits the struggles of the different characters against and in doing so I'm sometimes left omnisciently wishing 'if only you knew that it wasn't quite like that. they never wanted that for you. you were lied to.'
