I loved the series and I'm about to start the book. I hear the show followed the books very well but I'm hoping the book gives me more background on the characters. I'm already in love with most of them.
Has anyone read the book yet? Will my hopes for more background info be fulfilled?
You should really enjoy them, yeah. Things are a bit more fleshed out in the books. What's been great about the HBO series, though, is that they've been adding scenes here and there as well. Dangerous, but they've been well done, so it's paying off. They're necessary scenes because they help account for the differences between the time length and pacing in the books and show.
The two compliment each other nicely. Edited, Dec 25th 2011 11:18am by Eske
