    Hmm, interesting. I also found Qarth to be a weird ass creepy city.(Mainly due to that fucking Warlock, but the rest were weird too).

    Kinda pissed about The House of the Undying, though.

    They really should have showed ASOS    That particular person with a Direwolf's head in place of a human head    That would have fucking awesome If done subtly enough.

    You should identify that as a book 3 spoiler. Book 3 Upwards    It's not confirmed, but it's got something to do with the hairnet sansa was wearing. It was from Asshai, and as proven by Melisandre, some freaky shit goes on over there.   

       the beads on her hairnet were strangler poison

    God...waiting a year is going to blow so much dick.

    My brother bought me ASoS for Christmas.

    Would I be able to get away with reading ASoS having just watched the show?

    Neat. I have a question, it's about Joffrey, Book 3 and upwards spoiler.    Who poisoned him?   
       Not really revealed yet, but the most likely suspects right now are Littlefinger in collusion with the Tyrells. Of course, there's holes even in that theory.

    a storm of swords, just started reading it now. i havent read any of the other books, but so far having watched both seasons seems to suffice. there are a few differences, and it also sort of parallels the events of the second season. for example, ASOS     brienne and jamie are travelling with a frey, while in the tv series they turned him into a lannister and had jamie kill him. instead of encountering the stark men on the riverbank, they are chased by a galley from riverrun. i hope differences dont become too major later on in the book. (only read the first couple of chapter)

    You're going to miss a LOT of important worldbuilding and background stuff (like the majority of the Roberts rebellion stuff) if you don't read the first two books. There's a lot of foreshadowing and history that are crucial to many of the theories you're going to hear if you ever head to the official forums. Two hints that are the largest contributors to knowing Jon's parentage were completely omitted from the show.

    S2EP10 -    So if the dragons gave the warlocks power again, were they just faking it for the past hundred years or so?

    I'd advise against reading the book after the season you just watched, and would suggest starting with the first book, for the simple matter that the tv adaptation leaves quite a lot out, much of it which will be important later. (Quarth happened entirely differently)

    It's because some books got spilt into 2 volumes I think.

    Was it really necessary for Tywin to go in on a horse?

    welp, a few chapter into ASOS and things are starting to fall apart, can anyone tell me why     roose bolton has harrenhal? wasnt gregor left in charge? and isnt bolton a bannerman for stark? in which case, why was arya being held captive there? and if bolton has betrayed robb, then why would he help the tully's and others recapture jamie? ugh, might stop reading and just wait for the next season, as the changes seem to be getting more dramatic and i cant be arsed to read the first two books.

    The scene with his speech got me laughing hard.

    The events at the Winterfell felt a bit rushed and because I didn't read the books I have no idea    what happened to Theon and who burned the castle down.    Everything else was pretty good, except poor Tyrion.

    Also I thought The Walking Dead ended a month ago.

    I thought it was kinda obvious.

    In a previous episode Jon and him were plotting something (cant remember the exact words, I think it was something to do with gaining their trust). I know that Halfhand is only pretending to fight Jon.

    EDIT: I cant be the only one who thinks that scene with the three blasts reminds me of LOST. Specially the music.

    HBO is the original channel. It's the British who don't get it "officially" until today.

    Question to book readers:

       Going by the second season's ending, it seems that the Night's Watch will have a pretty damn good idea that the Others are back.

    Now, I've read on some spoilers because I can't help myself, and I know Sam survives, so he could tell the rest, so, why is it that in the next 3 books the rest of Westeros isn't more in a panic about the Others? I don't see much mention towards them in plot summaries or anything, and you'd think they'd have their heads up in fear about them.

       They're too busy being caught up in their own troubles. It's ironic, because the people of Westeros now mock and joke about the two elements in that world which could be the end of them all. White Walkers and Dragons. A Song of Ice and Fire.
