I can't really say much, I've pretty much felt exactly the same about basically every Stephen King novel-turned-movie-adaptation. Like "yea christine is a great movie, but did you read the book?" the movie was entertaining, while the book was absolutely fucking horrifying.

Just saw this on twitter. A typical reaction of someone who has read the books upon watching last weeks episode with friends who haven't.

I enjoy that I can watch two slightly creepy gifs at the same time thanks to your signature.

That black guy is creepier than your sig gif. There is a huge wave of those damn videos up. It is kinda funny though.

Which house would you profess loyalty too??? I suspect a few Lannisters here...... lol

I gave up on actually reading the first book and just randomly flip through a bit and read passages that seem interesting and different from the show. And or that were awesome enough that I can deal with them twice like most of the bits with Sandor.

I find that I'm losing the attention span to read a 500 word tome. I mean fuck I'm pretty sure this book alone is like twice the size of the Fellowship of the Ring and I hear the others are longer.

Ain't nobody got time for that.

You make me sad, DM. I thought you were a thinker. Thinkers read. Yeah they're big, but they're good. I'm a slow reader but made it through the whole series in a couple months. It's worth it, and it's worth it to reread what you've seen on the shows, because the history of Westeros is like it's own separate character in the show and it explains so much of why the characters act the way they do.

Man up and read the fuckin books!

I HATE short books. That's another reason I was so into Jordan 800-1200 page books for the same price as normal books. I'm the type to pick up encyclopedias, and read them all.

yeah, I do too..... Martins books are amazingly easy to read due to him being such a great writer. His descriptive terminology is unparalleled.

I still hate Jordan though...... I never made it through one of his books....
