You're a fan of the books then, I take it? ;)

I haven't read them, nor have I read A Song of Fire and Ice, so I tend to get the two mixed up. I'm sure that must seem like heresy to fans of one or the other… I'll have to get my act together one of these days, lol.

Anyway, I guess they did a 15-minute preview of the show a week or so ago and it seemed to go over well. I can't really think of a fantasy show like this that's ever been truly well-done, so I hope it's around for a while.

I haven't read them either, but I admit to a fair amount of interest. I haven't found time for a fantasy epic in a while though.

I've never read an "adult" fantasy book other than Lord of the Rings, now that I think about it. Just things like Harry Potter (which I actually couldn't bring myself to finish).

I didn't finish Harry Potter either, but I've read a fair bit of dragonlance style fantasy, heh. I remembered being into stuff like the Wheel Of Time series at some point, but now when people ask me about fantasy books I just wanna direct them to His Dark Materials.

The reviews so far have been very positive and people who have not read the books should have no problem following the story.  What I like about the books is they are geared towards adults.  Heavy on violence, sex, and intrigue and it looks like HBO is carrying over those elements to the show.  I am actually only on book 3 right now and the first 2 were great reads.  Of course the problem is they are huge books and I am always torn between those and the pile of Trades on my nightstand.  Trades win more often that not.  I did like His Dark Materials quite a lot as well.

the great thing about HDM is that it works as well as an adult and as teen lit, or whatnot.

 

I'll definitely read the Game of Thrones stuff at some point, though if it turns out the show is good I might watch that instead (or first). There isn't really much for epic fantasy on television, is there?

Game of Thrones is a good series to watch. I watch this show daily online and I simply love the characters.
