Are you as hooked as I am? That would be to say totally hooked! I love the series and I loved the books, although Martin does tend to get a bit rambly in parts and by the time you get to his most recent book, Dance With Dragons, you’ve got a whopping total of 31 points of view perspectives (characters telling the story from their perspective). The books are lonnnnng, but good at holding your attention for the most part. For those who do not know, there are currently a total of 5 books in the A Song of Ice and Fire series (the first book is called Game of Thrones and HBO adopted it for the name of their whole series) and the last one was released in 2011. He is taking his own sweet time with #6 and we are hopeful considering that George is only 64, that he will live long enough to finish the story since he absolutely refuses to allow anyone rights to continue it if he dies. At this time, he plans on two more books in the series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring, which will likely cover some time in the future because if we have learned nothing from this series, we have learned that Lanisters pay their debts, Jon Snow knows nothing, Impin’ ain’t easy, and Winter is coming, Bitches.
Since I have read all of the books and the show is adhering most faithfully to the primary plot points, I can slide some spoilers to you if you are interested. Granted, you can find these all over the net, but here they will be in one happy little package for you. I will cover what is coming up in the immediate future, because a lot of what happen beyond that builds on other stories that are just falling into place. Do NOT click over to read more if you want to be spoiler free. Beyond the link is anything BUT spoiler free.
