I am so annoyed that the book is now delayed until 2015 - I think he must have writers block
He left so many characters dangling in thin air...............

I love this show!!

Considering possibly reading the books... Are they good??

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Yes, they are very good, but there's a lot different from what they show in the series...but that happens with every book that's adapted to screen.

I laughed my butt off at the reactions to the red wedding that were posted all over youtube because I knew it was coming from having read the book.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Yes Z, so so so much better than the show IMHO. The characters seem soo much richer on paper, and I couldn't possibly wait for how long the series is taking. :)

2015? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

Never read the books nor seen the TV series. But I was floored when I found out the writer was George R.R. Martin. In 1987 I use to read a magazine called OMNI. Don't know if anyone remembers that one. It was a Scifi magazine and always had a short story in it. I got them mostly for that. George R.R. Martin had a story published in one called The Pear Shaped Man. To this day that is the creepiest short story I have ever read. I found the little pulp book online and bought it. I can read it over and over. Makes the hair on the back of my neck stand straight up. Creepy story. So if you ever feel adventurous and want to go outside the box...try that one.

I wonder how he's going to write the next books and still keep remotely in line with the TV series when some of his characters in the books are still alive but dead in the series
I actually listen to the audible version of the books while I'm doing barn work - I just wish Roy Dotrice who narrates it wouldn't keep changing the accents of the characters.

I'm currently working my way through Feast for Crows, but is anyone else worried that G.R.R.Martin's going to die before finishing the last book... I hope he told HBO what's going to happen... D:

OMG, I used to read OMNI! I have become a totally non-fiction reader, EXCEPT for my DH's books--he has e-published 4 so far and is e-publishing 3 more this year, total finished or in drafts is ~55.
DD (English Major) is working her way through the books. So...who is dead in the series but alive in the books? I LOVE spoilers! =b

A Jack and Three Queens, the latest book by James C. Dedman,
Hope that you fall in love with "Trot", like I did!

Well for starters Rob Stark in the books didn't marry anyone called Talysa, he married a Jeyne Westerling. She wasn't pregnant as far as the reader knows and didn't go with them to the red wedding so is still alive in the books

I made this thing. I really don't know why.
