First of all, both of the Game of Thrones books and TV series are really good. Huge fan. I think the TV series has done really well in bringing them to the screen.
The differences are mostly what you would expect when going from book to TV or book to movie. The plot is condensed, unessential characters are written out and minor changes are made to help it adapt to a TV audience.
I think a large problem is that the books are written from many different point of views. So there is obviously a lot of internal monologue going on that somehow needs to be communicated differently on TV. I think they have done well in this regard.
As always, people will say TV series/movies are never as good as the books, and they would probably be right. Some of the little changes have thrown me as well though, so there is a nice little bit of excitement of not knowing exactly what’s going to happen.
the books are much better, but obviously on the books makes your imagination fly and even then this serie is great I think the best I’ve seen so far, I love Game of Thrones
Incredible books, guaranteed to be 100% better than the shows. Get them, you won’t regret it!
Winter is coming …
I second that, even though I have not read the books… everyone tells me they are even better than the show.
I personally think GOT is one of the best series out there, great picture, plot and execution(in all possible meanings of the word) LOL .
I haven’t read the books, me and my family are fans
I’m planning to start reading them this summer, after I finish Steve Jobs’ biography.
