I'm about to watch it right now, I've had my eye on the show for a little bit. I don't know jack shit about the books unfortunately, but I'm sure this thread is crawling with people who do, so how is it following the books so far? I know the author is working on the show so I assume they can't go TOO far with the liberties.
It's almost exactly the same with a few liberties taken. The book had a structure where every chapter was told from the perspective of a different person which obviously conflicts with a weekly TV show sometimes but most of it is still in.
