Hi, I'm John from USA, caught the HBO premiere and got sucked into the depths of this fantasy world. By episode six it became too hard to wait even a week to see where the story went, so I blitzed my way through the all the books. Now I have to suffer the wait like everyone else. It's hard to imagine, to have been patient with the series for a decade and half. This world is something of a swift obsession, I'm on my second read yet tapping my foot for WoW-- I'll have blacksmith's arm of the leg before I know it. Anyways, good to be here, already had some great interpretative reads here of which there seems no short supply.
