Game of Thrones, what else can be said at this point in time?  If you aren’t watching, you better start.  Of course, like all things, it’s not for everyone, but if you think you’d like it, you probably will.  I live in a house with four male roommates all similar in age and yet I am the only one who has seen the first season.  One, Jonny Lee, has read some of the first book but lost interest near the end and would rather advocate the series, The Sword of Truth.  The others have all expressed interest, but it’s hard to get everyone organized and take an hour out of their day, especially when Game of  Thrones is a show that you have to pay attention to, or else you’ll never know who they are talking about when they mention the name, “Daenerys Targaryen.”

After watching the first season, multiple times, I decided I would get the book and read through to get some extra info on the story before the season starts.  Wow, how closely related can the two be?  So far, 10 chapters in, it’s almost identical to the show.  A few extra bits thrown in, with extra dialog and more information about characters past, but for the most part, the same.  This is exactly what I was hoping for, I love the show and that is why I am reading the book after watching the show.  I have about 80 more chapters to read before the premiere of season two on April 1st, but I’ll be ready.
