Who has read them?

I bought the first book for my dad last Christmas, because he's a huge Tolkien/fantasy fan and he was hooked. I never read them but I did dip in and out of the tv series. My dad has been pestering me to read them for ages! I was wondering if anyone else liked these books or this style?

The books are amazing!! I was really excited when the show came out and it didn't disappoint though I wasn't as in love with the show as my boyfriend was. Some of the characters/scenes seemed a bit awkward (I didn't like King Robert at all in the show).

I'm on the 3rd book, or well the second part of the 3rd book. :) The books are amazing though I get agitated when I think something life-changing is going to happen to important characters.

Liked the series, loved the books even more :D

I am in love with this series. I am not a huge fantasy fan, but these books really engaged me. I really recommend it. It really has a bit for everyone, from history references, to magic, to love.

I like to think I am a Martell.

oh my god, LOVE.
i'm about a quarter way through the second book right now. i randomly heard of the HBO series and thank god the two-sentence description piqued my interest. i finished the entire first season in less than a week. definitely obsessed.

do both! the books are obviously broader and the series are brilliantly done, but i do suggest the books, that way u'll understand many tiny details that maybe passed unnoticed when you watched the show...

I started with the TV series, then the 3rd season ended and I did not want to wait for the 4th, so I started reading the books (from the 1st book) and read the 5 books in 2-3 months, it totally caught me and I cannot wait to read the next one when it comes out. I also enjoy reading all the fan theories round the characters etc., some are very interesting, I do recommend it to you. There is one thing - I am affraid the ending would dissapoint me, but still hope it would not, we will see.
