Default A Game of Thrones

Did anyone catch the 15 min sneak peak on HBO last night? Have you read the books?

I'm about 3/4 through the first book and am absolutely loving it. The show was (I Thought) spot on to the story. (well it was for being only 1/4th of the first episode) I think its gonna be a pretty successful and LOOOONNNNNGGGGGG series for them.

I'm super stoked for it to start in 2 weeks.

Thoughts?

I read the books the first 3 something like 10 years so ago. I am pretty sure I read them again before I read A Feast for Crows when it came out because of the long lag between publication dates. So now it's been another 6-7 years and he may finally come out with #5 in a few months, but I'm not holding my breath at this point as he has, shall we say exaggerated publication dates so many times in the past it's lost all meaning.

I fully expect he will die before the series is finished.

I am re-reading the first one to get myself reacquainted with the story before the series begins. I'm about 50% through the re-read.


I have been looking forward to the series.

I've read all the books and it is probably one of my favorite book series ever with The Dark Tower series being up there. I just hope they stick to the books fairly close because they are amazing.

He has had several "official publication dates" on his website that came and went with no publication. I can recall when he said he was absolutely going to have it done by "no later than June" in 2005. The same book we are discussing now, by the way. I mean we are talking people buying preorders on Amazon, etc. Then he sheepishly changed the date, and the whole thing happened again. And again...



This is the same guy who said it was going to be a trilogy. Then the third book came out and he said, "whoops I meant four volumes". Then it was expanded to five. Now it is supposed to be seven.


I'm not saying this to badmouth him or anything. I am just saying you cannot trust any publications dates he gives you until you actually have it in your hands.
