Hey all, I'm not much into sci-fi but this series was STRONGLY recommended to me. Apparently the show is very good but the 5-book series in mind blowing. One of my buddies who doesn't usually read much said he literally threw one of the books across the room at one point and his dad is now reading them :lol:

So I'm wondering if anyone else is into this series and what they think?

I've read them but I would not consider them to be mind blowing. It's a good series that does not follow a stereo-typical story arc. GRRM is also good about not pulling punches. There is some fucked up content to be sure
They are worth reading but I can think of a lot of series that are more enjoyable.
If I recall correctly there are still 2 more books yet to come. I have a feeling the true value of the series will not be realized until the end.
