    READ IT, if you watched the show you know what to expect but if you didnt... there is really no story like it.

    started the 4th book in the series the other day. and the wife is starting the 5th book which came out on tuesday.

    id have to say each of the books in the series gets better (just started the 4th so i cant say about that one yet) but the 3rd book was amazing

    Man...the further I get into book 1 of Game of Thrones the more it shows the detail they had to lose. The description of Caetlyn's ascent to the Aerie...ooofa. Man I was getting height-sick from the book. So worth reading.

    That was one of my few dissapointments with the show. They didnt make the Eyrie's height imposing enough. Not that you get to see it from the outside all that much.

    You can understand it though. From a time and money standpoint they had to make some hard decisions. It was a small sacrifice.
