Game of Thrones

How many have watched Game of Thrones on HBO?

I wonder if I’m one of the few who hadn’t seen or read the series yet. I don’t subscribe to HBO and decided to wait for the Blu-ray to see the series. And the books have been on my reading list for ages now. I’m not a fan of main characters dying, so I pushed off reading them but no longer.

I’m going to sit down and read the books after I watch the series. I know it’s terrible not to read the books first. I wish I had a little more time to read the first book before I receive the Blu-ray. But my library doesn’t have a copy available at this time. I’ll settle for watching the first season and then reading the book.

How do you feel about watching a series or a movie before you read the book?

Strange as it may seem, I actually never heard of Game of Thrones (or A Song of Ice and Fire as is it's official title of the book series), but I saw trailers of it and it seemed kinda cool, so I kinda read up on the books as much as I could before it was shown.

The TV series is VERY close to the book and follows it almost word for word - changing only a few minor points. I'm now on book 3 of the series and still loving it. I'm interested to see how later series of Game of Thrones come out.

I loved the first season of Game of Thrones and can't wait for season 2 to begin.

Ladies, you have a spectacular site. Beautiful, easy to navigate, not distracting -- my compliments to the web designer.
