who cares if he finishes, the show is better anyway


Meh, I'd say the books were better but to each their own...


Is anyone else playing the Game of Thrones mod for Crusader Kings II? It just got updated for 2.3.4 and seems to be a lot more stable than it was in the alpha of this build.

I gave up after three books, does that count? Remember that "Concerning Hobbits" part of the book where Tolkien describes the lineage and family trees of those different kinds of Hobbits? Game of Thrones is half what happens in the show, and half that. Not to mention the part where we're always reading about inconsequential characters more than any good characters. The show does that too, but much less. I can't believe fans got upset because the showrunners created that Ros characters combining the roles of several minor character, because in the books those characters have literally no reason to exist.

Yup, I felt similar just reading the one.


GoT book 1 I bought at random one day and I struggled with a lot of boredom in the first half - then it became a bit interesting, and then by the last page I was "yes, I need to read the next one." Only there was no next one yet, and a couple years later I'd almost forgotten about it. Then it was suddenly this sooper popular series because the 2nd book took off or something. I find it kind of odd, really. Still, one day I'll get around to it. Although I wonder if I'd give up at book 3, too. :lol:

Very addictive television show.

Yeah. At first. After the third season it's all downhill however.
