I've been watching this and I'm sucked in. Warning though it's graphic and some of it's violent...and some of it's not.;)

I love it. I have a friend who has actually read the books, which she loves. I'm happy just to read the wikipedia abstract so's I can keep track of the main charactors. I especially like the blond dragon queen. Avert your eyes when the knight-of-poor-sportsmanship slays his horse.

I saw the first few episodes then we dropped HBO. :(

So I read the books. Just finished the latest one last night. Hard to put down, that's for sure.

I read the first three books, then gave it up. (Yes, I have a lot of endurance.) The main characters were just too unpleasant - almost every damn one of them bordeline sociopaths.

I watched a few episodes before I cancelled my Sky TV account (already planned), so I wasn't able to keep up with it. Then I started to read the books, and I am currently on book 3. It's absolutely stunning, and probably the best fantasy I have ever read.

Instead of my Sky account I now subscribe to a DVD rental service, and I understand that the TV series will be released on DVD in the near future.

I'm right at the end of the latest book. Had to wait 5 years for it.

I finished it last night at about 2:15. Wait. I guess that was this morning. So how long will I have to wait for the next one?

The concept of the entire 'world' of GoT taking place inside a sphere is nicely mind-bending. Y> Are there other 'spheres' enclosing other civilizations in that universe?

Okay, I must look out for the books. Any of you Tad Williams fans as well?
