They are starting to touch on the REAL issue facing their world. Fight for that Iron Throne all you want to people. You have a VERY serious problem coming at you from beyond the wall and it is going to take all of mankind to defeat it.

Book Spoiler
Spoiler:
I really lose interest in the story since House Stark basically gets wiped out. Most of the characters outside of that mean nothing to me...


Really sorry everyone :oops:

Um yeah... Rylan you should probably add a note about book spoilers to that post.

As a note, it's not quite as dire as Rylan made it sound with that spoiler, if that helps.

I have decided Tyrion Lannister is awesome. He joins my small list of awesome characters.

Don't look. It makes watching the series much more interesting/exciting.

Well I just finished A Feast for Crows, so I know whats going to happen. It's that elusive 5th book that I keep dodging.

I can't have it both ways, but I kinda wish I went into the tv show blind to the books like I did with the 1st season. I just can't wait 2-3 years to find out what happens next.

I just put the first season in my Netflix Q.
Is this going to be like smoking and I'm going to be addicted faster than I realize?

At least the show fans just need to wait a year before the next season. Book fans wait 5+ years for the next book in comparison.

I really hope the wait for Book 6 isn't 5 years... I was fortunate enough that book 5 came out right before I finished 4 so I had no wait.

I read 2-5 in a row after season 1 on HBO. I'll probably go back and read the first book to see what was different.

I wouldn't be surprised. He's been doing a few other writing projects like TV shows and the new Dunk and Egg installment. Looks like the next book is hardly a priority.

It's a good thing book 3 is being split into 2 seasons. It buys some time for the next few books. The show may catch up to the books if it lasts that long.

I just bought Dance with Dragons on Amazon for $18. I'm tired of trying to avoid spoilers. It will keep me busy for a while since I'm still in full ASoIaF mode.

Martin isn't exactly a spring chicken and his stature is a bit like that of samwell, so he better write quick to avoid a Jordan/Wheel of Time debacle.

I also want to note I never read a single WoT book mainly because most who did were pretentious about it. So Im kinda happy the series can't be truly finished.

If Martin kicks the bucket before he finishes the series... I will probably:

1. cry
2. take a trip to pay my respectspiss on his grave
3. cry moar
