I find the show not as enjoyable seeing how i read the books first. To me the mystery and shock of plot twists and deaths is what made the story so great. Seeing it played live and with just excessive nudity makes it fun but not something i can really get into. Anyone else who feels this too?[/quote]
Let me rephrase that from excessive to unnecessary and out of context nudity. [/quote]
I see what you’re saying about the nudity but that’s just a given with premium channel shows. Sex sells.
I enjoy the show even though I’ve read all the books as well. The shocking plot twists/deaths won’t be as shocking (obvious) but no Movie or TV Show will be as good as the book.[/quote]
Yeah good points. I gotta say though, as great 1-3 were, i made it halfway through the 4rth and that was it. Not motivation to finish it. [/quote]
I thought 4 was kinda lame. I didn’t like introduction of all these new characters and the lack of tangible story progression.
I powered through and book 5 was good. It has some pretty sick parts too.[/quote]
Yeah book 4 sucked… OK it didn’t suck, but the pace was so much slower than books 1-3. Never thought of putting it down though.
Beginning of book 5 was kinda meh, but once book 5 catches up to book 4 in the present time, it gets really really good.[/quote]
AFFC had no Tyrion, Jon Snow, or Daenerys. Those are my favorite characters (as well as Arya), so it made it harder to read. The chapters with Sam, the Dornish, and the Ironborn were the hardest ones to give a fuck about, but they were needed to set up ADWD. Jaime’s chapters were pretty good. I like the direction his character started to take here. He is actually becoming one of my favorites now.[/quote]
same here. Jamie’s a fucking BAWS
