    I will read them after the show to. I almost read them first but I did with true blood and it ****ed me off when they didn't follow them.

    My DH is begging me to read them. But he also likes leaving me in suspense cause he knows EXACTLY what is going to happen. lol

    I was like that with the books - not wanting to read them them or get ahead of the TV show - but stepson wanted to read them (he's 13) and I thought I should make sure they were appropriate first because there's no way we'd let him watch the TV series. I loved them and finished the whole series (well, the published ones) in about 6 months.

    There is so much character development in the books that they miss in the TV show because they just can't fit it in. I'm actually planning on reading them again from where the TV series leaves off because a lot is going on in the last ones.

    The red wedding is different in the books too. Robb's wife is not some random person from o/s but is actually a Lannister cousin! So I'm always looking for other differences but the TV show is so well done it doesn't actually bother me that they change things. It's great they're keeping the story so tight.

    When I first started with the books I was worried I would spoil the TV show. When I got to a point in the books that was beyond the show I was worried the show would spoil the book and had to keep reading!

    My strategy has been to read after each season is completed as far as the series has gone, and no further. Given this world is not good vs evil (like Lord of Rings), one really does not know what will happen, so for me it would detract from the enjoyment of the series to get ahead.

    I think this works in the long run because the show will almost certainly conclude (it's 8 seasons long) before Martin actually finishes the final volume.

    Not to be morbid but I think Martin will die before finishing the series. He's not young and writes slowly, and it keeps getting bigger than originally planned. So it's nice that the TV show may be able to wrap things up independent of the books.

    Finally watched episode 2 lol edit: spoiler!!!!


    Yeah I'm with the above I just avoid the thread so I'm think it's fine discussing episodes as long as it's not in the first couple of lines.

    Tbh I was a bit disappointed as South Park had already spoiled it (they did a GOT spoof ) and they mentioned king Joffrey got poisoned and I thought that was poor form considering it hadn't been on the tv yet.

    I thought the red wedding episode was far more shocking as you knew something bad was gonna happen in this one.

    Poor tyrion. Personally (haven't read the books) I think Sansa did it when she picked up the cup. I seriously will cry if tyrion dies

    Can't wait for the next one!

    SPOILERS!!!!! (although it came out 2 weeks ago)







    I believe it was the Tyrells. They had everything to gain from his death. A powerful family, would have had access to the wine. I think that's why maybe Margery looked at him funny when he made Tyrion pick the cup up. I don't believe they intended him to get the blame.... or maybe they did? I wondered why the grandmother, who seemed loving of her grand daughter and switched on, would allow Margery to marry Joffery knowing what he was like - bc they intended killing him right after the wedding from the beginning.

    '

    But with the marriage unconsummated would she get to be the queen still?
