Love both, started with the show, got addicted, had to read the books. I absolutely love the actors on the show and Tyrion is astounding. I love how well rounded the characters are, no one is purely good or evil. You love/hate them all and some you lean more to one side than the other.

Well, I ended up watching the first 3 episodes on Monday night, very good! Although I hope Jon eventually stops standing around with his mouth hanging open looking dumb all the time! I can't wait for the last book; what's the word on when it will be finished?

the books are pretty good. ive not watched the series at all except a few episodes here and there.
if you like it, give the "wheel of time" series a try by robert jordan. imo its much superior.

I like the series. They do a decent job for the tv series. I am about 50% through the 5th book, but I just haven't been interested in reading the remainder, and not because the book is bad, I am determined to finish it by spring!

I saw a couple episodes of the show and was totally turned off. But i decided to give the books a shot.
I am about 150 pages or so into book one and it is ok. Less graphic sexually than the corresponding tv episodes.
There is incest, and a child bride (child to our modern way of thinking) and violence. So it is not for the squeamish.
I am reserving full judgement till I finish at least the first book.
I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain.
If this isn't what I consider soulmate crap, I don't know what is.

I can't wait for the last book; what's the word on when it will be finished?
I read that book 6 is almost done, no release date but it will be done before season 6 of the show.
It takes him like 5 years to write one, so book 7 could be a long way off!!
I heard a rumor that he told the producers of the show what is going to happen, so that if he dies before finishing the books at least we'll be able to watch it!
