I  think we are all too deepressed. I've been waiting for the rest of the books for years, and the tea that was served isn't my flavour.

I’ve read them all a few years ago, I’ll probably read them again if GRRM ever does finish the last two books. 

I do think it’s bs how long he has taken to release TWOW though, feel like that’s why the last season for GOT was so bad because they didn’t have any source material to go by except the ending GRRM told them.

He did give them a plot line and who was king so it is whats going to happen in the book, when they are ever released lol

I read all the books and I definitely liked A Storm of Swords the best. If I had to rank them:

5. A Feast of Crows

4. A Clash of Kings

3. A Dance With Dragons

2. A Game of Thrones

1, A Storm of Swords

I hadn't read the spin off books yet though.

I’m gonna buy and read them this summer as my gift to myself for graduating high school. GOT is my favourite show, so maybe these will dethrone the Harry Potter books as my favourite books. 

Bryoncé, Lorde, Rihanna, Arianna, SZA, and the list goes on

As a massive fan of the show, I’ve been wanting to get into the books really badly. But George has taken way too long releasing the next book and there’s still another one left. I just don’t want to read a story that will remain unfinished. I’d rather take a rushed conclusion like the show than no conclusion at all.

I've read the books before the show. The story does change a bit: from season 3, a lot of different characters, and a lot of different events, people who don't die, people who die... Even if the ending is the same, the road is clearly a lot different!

 

The story is great and the books give a lot more focus in the past and the theories, the History of Westeros and all the Houses, and that's my favourite part. The TV series doesn't really give that the best importance to that.

 

The last book though was not very good. Not because of the story and the twists, but because in 800 pages, only the last 100 are indeed story. Everything else is so damn boring .

Yes , the writer really dedicates a lot of the book for build-up, and that is why it's unlikely that we will get the same feeling that the last season had. But it's so damn too much, it's frustrating because it resembles a soap opera more than a high fantasy novel.

Anyway, really well thought books.

 

Taking almost 10 years to write the sixth book in a series that he's writing for the last 20 years is absolutely unjustifiable. You'd understand if it was his first or second book, where he's still planning the story and trying to get in character, but not in your sixth book.

I own them and need to read them. We should start a book club. 

For the debt I owe, gotta sell my soul, 'Cause I can't say no, no, I can't say no

I read the first 2 books in their Arabic versions and they're extremely enjoyable.. I want to start reading them in English but i'm hesitating cause I'm afraid that they're not easy to read...  U know english is not my first language .

For anyone that wants to start reading the series, this is important. The last 2 books take place at the same time and are split by characters instead. So for example "A Feast for Crows" has all the Arya and Cersei chapters, while "A Dance With Dragons" has all the Jon and Daenerys chapters.

A lot of fans dislike these books because of this. Some awesome individual worked out where each chapter should be and made a list that you can follow if you want to read them both at the same time. 

Link to the chapter orders here:

Reading them (books 4&5) this way is a faaaar better experience, and all my friends (first time readers) that read it this way enjoyed them a lot more than the ones that didn't.

I’ve only ever read the first 3 books. I liked them all. The first is spot on with the show

For atleast for The Song books, we are still expected (according to him):

- Winds Of Winter

- Dream of Spring

- Fire and Blood Part 2
