GAME OF THRONES--WINTER IS COMING...THOUGHTS
No worries to those who have not watched yet...there will be no spoilers. I just could not contain myself regarding the magnificence of this show. HBO has truly done it again. I started reading the first book in George R. R. Martin's beloved series, A Song of Ice and Fire, last weekend. I'm about 200 pages in and this book has been very hard for me to put down. I was happy to discover tonight that the first season on HBO will cover the first book only. As I stated, I'm 200 pages in and I'm already well past what transpired in the first episode so I will be able to stay ahead of the television series very easily in my reading. I'm also happy to report that the series (the first episode anyway) was very close to the book. Visually stunning and with stellar performances by the actors, I highly recommend you check this series out. Also, if you haven't read the book(s), what are you waiting for? I can't believe it took me this long to discover these books and I owe a bow of gratitude to HBO and their show for sparking my interest. Let's hope the series will lead some non-readers to the books as well.
