After becoming a huge fan of the show...and now having to wait for-e- ver for the final season to air, I felt it was a good time to get into the books (fill the GOT shaped hole in my heart).
Such a great book and fairly easy read! There was never a lull and each chapter held actual meaning, and was not just there to fill pages. I love that I could escape reality for a short while and enter into this world. It also gives you insights that you don't necessarily get in the show.
