I may be a little slow and behind with the times, but I started to read the Game of Thrones series instead of watching it. Am I glad I did! I did something similar with the Lord of the Rings. After watching The Fellowship I decided I wasnt going to see any other of the movies until I read the complete saga. It was completely amazing how Peter Jackson created parts of the other films that felt like deja vu to me. Seeing how the world was to look in the first certainly helped my own imagery as I read the trilogy. I am getting the same feeling as I read through Game of Thrones. So far the read is easy and in short chunks. I am getting a much better feel for all the names and characters from reading than from watching. I heard there might be five seasons to go through the story on film so I figured now was a good time to catch up and then read ahead in order to enjoy the differences between the film and book. It is great fun for my brain. If you haven’t read the series I highly suggest you get the books and do the same.
