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...

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.

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.
