    If you think Arya's great in the show you should definitely read the books. I am so into her (not sexually).

    I don't know if I would say which is better, but it's definitely like The Godfather where the quality of the performances can at times outshine the source material. Although I thought the ending to Danaerys' story in GoT was absolutely heartbreaking to read, and I was horribly dreading having to experience it all over again with the show, but it really wasn't that bad.

    Show better than the books? That can't be evaluated yet. Anyone who's read the books is automatically going to be bringing something with them to the show that's not actually there yet. I have no doubt that this show, barring some monumental screw up on the producers' parts, will go down as the greatest fantasy series of all time, but whether that will make it better than the books remains to be seen.

    It's already the second most watched show of the past year, behind true blood but before boardwalk empire. It's 3rd most watched of all time. With the sopranos in first then true blood. And GoT hasnt even reached its second season.

    I want them to deviate from the books and basically have the plot be that Tyrion rules the world and all others must dance for him. Plus that horrible thing that happened at the end of GoT/Season 1 DID NOT HAPPEN

    There are a few things in the book that are genuinely hard to read because things are happening that you hate to characters you like. He better give us a happy ending by book 7 though. i know his form, It'd be just like the fat bearded smurf to end it all Blake 7 style. He hates happy endings (and I'm not talking about a massage wank).

    Davos, Jaime, Arya & Stannis are arguably my favorite characters in the books (quite fond of great big fat Wyman Manderly & Delorus Edd Tollett but they're quite minor). Some characters I liked in the first few books I've gone off slightly as I'm easily annoyed by stubborness & arrogance (I believe that covers Jon & Tyrion nicely).

    In summary, Cant wait.

    Damn you people, why could you bring this thread up closer to the time of its release... now I know its released in April I have to wait ; ;

    On the whole "The show is better" I initially had the same reaction as Julian but I after seeing the first series I am inclined to keep an open mind, how they treat Arya's and Daeny's story arcs will come to be the deciding factor.

    Whether or not the show is better or vice versa is inconsequential and arguments one way or another are pointless. Television and books are two entirely different mediums with differing strengths and weaknesses. I don't understand why people insist on comparing the two when they are completely incomparable.

    Well I read the script and I think it's better than the books. Those stage cues are just brilliant.

    Martin has stated that the books are going to have a "bittersweet ending". Which given what he does to his characters has me worried, since his definition of a bittersweet ending is likely to be pretty smurfing depressing.

    The series is not better than the books, but it might manage to be as good if it keeps up its current level of quality.
