Almost done with the first book. Expecting to be disappointed with the TV series.
HBO series is actually very good. The sets and costumes are gorgeous. Most scenes worked out better in the book, but the Drogo speech in episode 7 was so much better on the show.
As a TV series, I expect a lot of stuff to be left out of the books, but I find it curious that they added a few extra scenes that weren't in the books.
