Clash of Kings is a big step up from Game of Thrones. Where as GoT has a lot of intro and buildup before the fast pace of the story at Kings Landing, CoK starts there and revs up even higher. It's a great book.
Storm of Swords is miles better than both.
They aged people up for the show. Daenerys was supposed to be 13 when she married Drogo I think. Rickon in the books is like 4, Bran is like 7, Sansa is 11, Robb is 15.
Way too young to portray half the stuff in the show at that age (although from a medieval setting, GRRM got it right) so obviously they would have to bump everyone up.
Yea, Sansa and Arya start at 13 and 11, Daenarys is 18ish, Rickon is 5 (supposed to be 3) and Bran is 9 instead of 7.
Robb and Jon Snow are both 14 when GoT starts, or near enough, but they're 17ish when the show starts.
All the child actors are fantastic; they cast all the Stark kids perfectly and can you imagine a more perfect guy to play Joffrey?
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Fairly good casting. Robb and Joffrey are excellent, but Arya is my favorite. Maisie Williams does a great job.
I'm a huge fan of the books, and I have read them all multiple times, but honestly if your interest is primarily the show, you don't HAVE to read the books. Especially if you have the blu-rays. The "histories" extras on the blu-rays are absolutely fantastic and do a good job providing a lot of the background that you get in the books that is outside of the show. The blu-rays extras are must-haves if you love the show.

Needs more topless Dany
Can't wait to see the Dornishwomen.
oh i'm going to read them no matter what now that i'm in....I was just wondering aloud whether it's better to read CoK first or watch the season first. Now that I say it again it's a silly question though. Reading is always better.
Nice tip. I just ordered mine :)
CoK is arguably the 2nd best book in the series, although Dance With Dragons claims that spot for me by a slim margin.
I ve listened to the books on audible and the readers voices are pretty funny, it's good but now I am used to the actors it throws me off
so mattyfresh and so clean
A Lannister always scoops his poop…
