I’ve started this blog because I just loved the Game of Thrones series. Well, now I’m becoming ever more impatient with waiting for the next episode to show up, so I’m just going to go ahead and buy the Song of Ice and Fire series. Have you heard about them? They’re the books which started off the series, with A Game of Thrones, pulished in 1996, being the first book of five (and two more on the way).
The author, George R.R. Martin, has been called America’s Tolkien. I have to say I’d never even heard of him, nor of the books, before coming across the TV series.
Have you read the books yet? What did you think about them? Is the series faithful to the books, and are the characters as you imagined them to be if you read the books before you heard of Game of Thrones? I’d love to hear your comments!
