We have been reading "The Game of Thrones" which originally was a three book series that is now seven. We are on book five now and I really have no desire to watch the HBO version as good as it may be. Reason being that each of these books is on average 1000 pages. So it really makes me wonder how much of the books are being altered or even cut in the TV series. I know this always happens, but given the extreme length of these books and how fast they are covering ground (based on what I hear in the news) It seems to be an impossible task!
