Definitely read the books, cbspock. So much more depth, detail and scale in them. The show feels like the Cliffs Notes version of the story by comparison. There are 5 books currently out and 2 yet to be written. This season covers just the first half of book 3.
The Red Wedding made me quit the books, to be honest. I made it to the end of book 3, but was far too frustrated with Martin after that. I know it shows that he doesn't follow the herd and he's a surprising writer and all that, but if I want depressing literature where everyone dies or suffers, I'd read any number of Russian novels.
