Having been watching the TV series, I’ve also been reading the book as well.
It’s not been a bad read, but I really think it speaks highly of the TV series that actually includes most of the details.
Sadly, I can’t think of a better example than Harry Potter. But if you take Harry Potter, the novels are great because they contain large story arcs and extra details that are entirely missing from the films. I didn’t find this to be the case with A Game of Thrones – the TV series has covered pretty much all the book.
As I’ve said, that isn’t really fault of the book though, which was definitely worth a read.
