  1. I have purchased the Official Cookbook. Some friends and I are planning a complete series marathon over the weekend of the Season 5 premiere, including the Ommegang Beer series and recipes from the book!

    I hope I can encourage her to give it another shot. I am not sure what country you are from, I am from the US, which is why I think I like GRRM a little bit better. Tolkien was a English Linguist and I think sometimes some of his writing goes a little over my head. Obviously works like The Simarillion are written more like a bible and can be difficult to read, whereas GRRM seems more consistent with one style and it seems to be a style I understand a bit better. That's not to say I don't love Tolkien though! Also, thanks for posting the link to the WC. I am obviously rooting for USA, but my family lived in Germany until my father was 3 so I have strong ties to the German team, and that's who I am really pulling for. Die Deutsch Nationalmannschaft!
  3. And now, another 10 months of waiting for more Game of Thrones :(

    Hello, My name is Seth and I am new here. I have been posting already, but as I just found this thread, I figured I would drop in and actually introduce myself. I finished ADWD almost a month ago now, but I didn't start the series until after I watched Season 3. After seeing the show, I deduced that if it was such an amazing show, the books must be way better. I couldn't have been more right. Before experiencing GRRM's work, Tolkien was my favorite author and The Hobbit was my favorite book. After reading ASOS, that quickly replaced Hobbit on my last and after finishing ADWD, I can say that personally I enjoy GRRM's writing style and consistency so much that he has taken the #1 spot from Tolkien on my list. I now am starting to consider stopping watching the show depending on when the next books are released so I don't spoil anything for myself. I cannot get enough of this series. I think about it constantly at work and home and frequently discuss it with fellow book readers. What GRRM has done here is astounding and I'm happy to be a part of this community. A little more about me, I love photography and playing the drums. Music is a huge part of my life and Ramin Djwandi has done a fantastic job for the show. Hope to speak with all of you more on here. Regards, Seth
  5. I'm ready for the season finale!!!

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Wow, this is so cool! Just wanted to say thanks to David and Dan for all the nods to book readers in the show and for putting together what I can call an AMAZING cast and crew and making this series truly special. My deepest appreciation is extended to you.
