The Game of Thrones

Recommended Posts

The next two seasons should be pretty amazing since Storm of swords is the best book in the series. The 4th book is a complete snore-fest and the 5th book finishes about 300 pages too early with about 700 cliff-hangers. But don't worry, Martin promises he'll have the next book out in less than 5 years .....

Just got into this series a few weeks ago. Raced through season 1 and season 2 and immediately started the first book. Pretty amazing stuff. Tyrion Lannister is freakin' awesome btw.

 

Any timetable on the release date for The Winds of Winter?

I need to pick up the 4th book before season 4 starts. I got through the first 3 iirc and then he took that 5 yr break before the next and i never got myself to start them again.

Nothing official. Sounds like 2014.

Would you guys recommend I just watch the TV show or wait until I read the book? I have the TV series up to date on my computer but I wanted to wait until I read the books that I also have downloaded.

 

I started the first book about a year ago and got about 100 pages in but then just stopped because I didn't really have time and it is a very tough read. I will probably continue reading within a year when I actually have time and I am sure once I finish the first one I will rush into the rest of the series.

I find the popularity of Game of Thrones (along w/ LotRs and the Hobbit, etc) to be pretty entertaining actually. These types of things are what nerds have been getting flack for reading for decades and then once they make a movie about it, it's awesome! lol There are so many good stories out there that will hopefully be made into movies or a series now.

It's up to you. I like knowing what's going to happen this season but it depends on how you feel about it. They're following them pretty much to the letter iirc but I haven't read them in a while so I'm not 100% sure on that.

 

I still need to pick up book 4...

Watch it. If only for the babes.

I will be saying these exact words during the TR power vaccum that occurs when Oman's reign finally ends.
