    I agree with harvs. Reading words on a page and bringing only your own life experience (as a child, in this case) to the meaning and interpretation is so very different to a literal showing of it on tv-real people, revved up music, gratuitous ramping up of themes. Once a visual concept of something is introduced, especially if it is an 'adult'theme, its hard to erase. I say yes to the books, no to the tv series.

    I'd say the tv is worse. I'm an English teacher and it's amazing how much meaning/understanding children miss when reading. Even a mature reader might not fully comprehend an adult concept, they'll interpret it their way. But a tv show can't be unseen. GOT is graphic.

    Thanks so much girls. The books were my first choice, firstly bc I'm a huge believer in literature and imagination and secondly bc of what you all said re. her own ideas vs on screen.

    I had already chosen a lovely box set from the Book Depos for her birthday but DH said maybe the books may be worse since they can be so much more descriptive. She is like me - she loves the inter-relationships which the books and series has.
