Are the books good?
i actually like book 1 the best as it sets the major framework
book two clash of kings also is quite enjoyable as it adds a depth of complexity to the overall story
book 3 I feel like it's starts getting a bit messy but it tries to weave in a new story line to keep the guys in the north interesting.
book 4 is boring as it tries to build a new arc, the show i feel does this more justice and helps flesh out daenarys better
book 5 starts off slow, but starts building up. there's alot more symbolism in this book then all the other ones and he really starts bringing this series closer to fantasy but it's split because he cut it short and made the other half book 6.
the books are definitely an epic read. the first 5 books are like 5000 pages!
took me a year of commute reading to finish all 5.
