I've been meaning to get into it. But I've got a ton of books to read and I don't have a TV. I saw a glimpse of an episode, which looked good, but I'd probably be more enthusiastic about finding time for the show if it didn't get somewhat pornographic every now and then.

I tried to read Game of Thrones.......... Don't get me started I like watching the show better. And I like to say, whenever Cersei enters the scene, "Uhhhhh.... Bitch!" It's a fun laugh seeing them suffer instead of reading about it.

I got about sixty pages into A Clash of Kings, but then I had to take it back to the library because someone else had requested it and I couldn't renew it. Unfortunately I haven't managed to pick it up since. It's still on my reading list, though.

I've been reading the books, I haven't watched the show yet. I don't really want to until I finish the books. I'm in the middle of Clash of Kings right now. They're really good. But oh lord the books get dirty. I don't know if the show is like this.. but yeah. Awks. ಠ_ಠ

I am completely up to date on both, and am eagerly awaiting the updates of both. Although, I'm beginning to like the series better. Possibly having something to do with more character-focus and compact storytelling.

I've read the first two books but I don't seem to have the time to get through them, they're so huge! I'd rather read a bunch of smaller books because they're easier to cart around to work and appointments, and my bag strap won't snap again :/ The show is incredible too! So excited for season 3 in March! :hooray:

BOOKS! well, not many.
I read the first book in anticipation of the TV show, but I had mixed feelings about it: on the one hand, there was a bit too many characters narrating, soooo many peripherals and parts of the story were a bit dragged out. I mean, I love me some long epic books, but this one I nearly gave up halfway! :faint: But on the other hand, the closer I got to the end I was like "OMG WHAT"S GOING TO HAPPEN??" :la: The final page of the first book made me reaaaaly wanna try reading the second book, but I only got a few chapters in and I gave up :nuu:
In the end I never got round to watching the TV show haha

I have never read a series I despised more. It should never have been published. The tv show is marginally better, but it's pretty racy.

:iconjedidahjo:
JedidahJo Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013
The initial story line is pretty good. The 'game of thrones' aspect is very interesting.

But, I like my heroes to have SOME morals! I really can't condone the actions of characters who twist morality to suit their own ends.

And I've never read a series that uses sex as a crutch so often. Nine times in a single chapter is a little excessive. Besides, I'm not into incest and pedophilia.

If it weren't for those reasons, I'd quite enjoy the series.

Read all the books, and am caught up with the show. I love them both, but the show let me down by leaving out my favorite scene in the whole series. The one with Arya and The Tickler ;-;

“Is there gold hidden in the village? Is there silver? Gems? Is there food? Where is Lord Beric? Where did he go? How many men were with him? How many knights? How many bowmen? How many, how many, how many, how many, how many, how many? Is there gold in the village?”

I plan on starting the books once I finish the Wheel of Time. They've been sitting on my shelf for ages, but I didn't have it in me to read two huge series that like at once. :)

I admit I've only read A Game of Thrones, but I didn't find it comparable to the Wheel of Time. The Wheel of Time is written in a way that introduces you to a vast world of political intrigue and has dozens of characters you genuinely care for; A Game of Thrones felt like reading a political textbook in comparison. Not that it wasn't a good book, but I just didn't connect with it like I did the Wheel of Time.

I like the books but after AFFC and ADWD I just kind of got burned out on it. The TV show wasn't that impressive, to me, and I've heard it's kind of gone in a different direction than the books. It's to be expected but at the same time I was hoping that they'd keep the characterization the same as in the books.

Read and own the entire collection. I hate the fact that every character I loved/liked/got even slightly attached to got killed. I'm left with like... tertiary or quaternary favorites. It's a great story, but too many of my favorite people died...

I am... attempting to read the books, but it's a challenge. I think they're interesting, but the author seems to feel the need to describe every single thing that happens in detail, so it's difficult to read more than a page every time I open one of those books.

You're original comment suggests you're upset that 'neither' got the most votes, but if you add up all the other categories, there are more people that follow the story then don't.

I'm partway through the books. I'm not all that impressed, honestly. He is very repetitive with his words and phrases, as well as his analogies and metaphors. His plots are neat but I don't think he's all that good a writer. The books are also twice as long as they need to be, so they get pretty monotonous, I think. He basically just tosses a bunch of cheap thrills, interpersonal drama, political intrigue and sex together to create easy entertainment. It's not insightful, unique or exciting to me. Also, the crazy amounts of sex just feel like a mashup of him trying to prove that they're adult books combined with being a pervy old man... Without the sex and without the show, I think the books would melt away into obscurity just like all the countless other fantasy books.

I tried to start the book, but gave up after 100 pages.

I know it's not bad (believe me I've read some very bad books), but I just didn't feel enthralled by it.
