Agreed. It's such crap. The Iron Borne part IRRITATED me to no end, but I went through the book "hoping" for something more.

That was unfortunate.

I learned that the hard way with the Interview With A Vampire movies. It's not a good feeling when you see good work ruined in a movie.

Sounds good, Sphinx...

I watched a couple of episodes of it, and I have to say it follows the plot line almost to a nail. Some things are skewered, but I think it's more or less artistic perspective being deployed in those instances.

Finished the newest book today.

And I thought it was 100x better than the fourth book.

Now I just have to wait 5 more years for the next one...:confused:

Yeah, the last one is getting great reviews. And something tells me that with HBO waiting on him, the next one won't take five years.

Agreed. Still...sucks that I can't finish the series :(

I've heard that the show follows the book pretty good. I just started these books. I downloaded a sample on my kindle and then finished that and bought the first four books. It was cheaper.

A co-worker has been telling about these books for a while.

I haven't gotten around to watching the series; however, from the couple of shows that I have seen it does follow it extremely well. And the books are incredible.

I'm still in book one. I keep getting people mixed up so I have to kind of go back and reread. I don't read every day either so I think that is part of the problem.

Season 2 starts in April, btw.
