    I'm the same bro.

    Havent read the books yet but from my experience, books are ALWAYS.. AAALLLWAAAYS better than their adaptations. They contain more and most of the content comes from your own imagination with regards feeling it and seeing it after reading descriptive text.


    The TV show is fantastic and since I've put reading the books off, I dont find myself grappling with the show and books in contrast to each other or anything. It is going fine. I fucking love the characters, they're brilliant in their own ways, they really are.

    Going to suffer some serious withdrawl symptoms after this series.

    Yeah I gave up on finding it about a month ago and only got spurred on to google it again after I made my post. Lo and behold I finally found it available. Instantly purchased.

    I was actually impressed by how little it was, normally a full American series goes for around £40 - £50. I managed to pick it up on Amazon for half of that.

At the end of his 4th book Martin said he had A LOT more stories to tell with these characters and by the look of how popular it is I'm quite sure that he'll be pumping out more of these books before the t.v. show is over with and we may even get to see more seasons beyond season 5.
    The chance of GRRM getting more than one more book out: 10%.
    I hate to break it to ya, but there are tons more stories to be told and that need to be wrapped up, but with the way he writes and the time it takes I wouldn't expect too many more to be told by him.
    I think GRRM is a bit tired of writing these characters and stories. Which is why it has taken so long between books, while at the same time he has written other books for other series. At the rate he writes with books I'd be surprised if he finishes the 6th book by the time the 5th season is on HBO. I think most new comers to the series don't realize how long it takes him to write.

    Add the fact that GRRM is also helping with the TV show, will be even slower for his books to continue -_-

    By the time HBO run out of stories to adapt to tv, I'm sure the shows writers would be able to pick up fine from there though ( if the tv series even lasts that long).

    .. im not much of a reader myself, but i got my hands on audiobooks with actors, sound background, and i must admit it blows my mind.
    Also tv show is amazing ... fukin crack on tv screen.
    This, Spartacus, and Walking dead so far was the best tv shows i watched. ( the newest one i mean... im not counting Sopranos,The Wire and rest of the classics)

    K back to audiobooks.

    Also to book readers how long we need to wait for this ?

    I believe most of Martin's problems came from the fact that book 4 and 5 take place at the same time, and he had to rewrite 5 a zillion times to get all the characters to synch up.

    I think they've said already that book 3 will be split into 2 seasons as it's the longest and most eventful of the series.

    They'll be able to save us the boring shit that is the 4th book by interweaving it with book 5, which is nice. I wouldn't be shocked to see 3 seasons come from those two together - book 5 was almost as big as book 3.

    As far as the remaining books go, I'm pretty sure GRRM said he's given the plot outline to the writers of the show in case something happens to him before the series is finished. So long as HBO doesn't cancel the show, they'll have content. It'd be weird to see the show extend beyond the books though.

    Lazy fucks are missing out on a much better story by watching the TV show and not reading the books. The books are infinitely better, even though I do think they are doing well with the TV show.

    You'd be surprised how much fame and money will motivate people.

    he said he would crack down and start writing winds in q1 of 2012, yet hes still got alot of other projects hes behind on, a 50 page sample of a vampire book he wrote come out the other day, he still tours all the time to events in different countries, hes read 2 chapters from vic and tyrion at these book events and released a theon chapter on his site which is all pre wrote and couldnt apparently fit into the 5th book. so at the moment it appears he aint done anything.
