Re: The Book thread.
There are 5 out right now, with two to come. Well we all think it'll end with two. We'll see.
You said you liked Steinbeck in a previous post. While I'm not saying Martin is Steinbeck, he is similar in that the world he creates is pretty freaking bleak and bittersweet is probably the best possible outcome in all scenarios. It's really nothing like Lord of the Rings save both have supernatural stuff. LotR tends to use black and white morality while Game of Thrones is all shades of gray.
Did you watch the HBO show? If so, you got a taste of what the books are like. It's mostly political intrigue with some brutal and graphic combat thrown in at times, as well as plenty of sex. There are definite elements of horror too.
