Default Game of Thrones

Has anyone here read the books and/or started watching the series?

After hearing tons about it, I finally wound up watching the Pilot and loved it! I've decided to try out the first book before continuing to watch the series.

Has anyone else read the books? Is it worth reading them or should I just continue with the show?

I'm watching the show and I'm going to read the books oVer summer after my exams. You should do both really. And the show is fantastic. One of the best tv shows on tv at the moment.

I'm reading the first book and it's fantastic. I've only seen part of the first episode of the show (I don't have HBO) and I was really impressed by the amount of detail it had, right down to portraying Arya as a tomboy from the very beginning.

I tried to watch the series but it was just to boring gave up at about the 4th episode I expect the books are probably better I'm tempted to try and read at least the first one (possibly the rest if I like it) to find out.

I am loving the show, though I did not expect the large amount of profound sexual content and nudity. That's not to say I am disappointed, but it came as a surprise. (No pun intended)

He's grown on me these last few episodes. What a badass. Arya and Ned are great as well.

I've read all four of the books so far (fifth is coming out this summer!) and I strongly recommend this series to anyone who likes fantasy. In my opinion, A Song of Ice and Fire is one of the best fantasy series out there.

I've read the first three books and am halfway through the fourth. I'm caught up on the show, too. I suggest watching/reading both. The book is much more satisfying because George RR Martin includes so much detail, however, the series is just pure awesome as well.

Haven't felt this way since season 5 of 24.
