You're joking right?

I understand what you're saying (though not whether it is accurate or not), but you should choose your words more carefully.

I don't read very often at all... in fact the only time I read is while on holiday as I'm bored as shit as my wife sun bathes and I've got the skin of an Albino. Anyway... I started reading the books after watching the first season, I read the first book expecting it to have more details and I didn't want to miss anything. Well I think there was only one really noticeable difference between the first book and series which was one of the battle scenes with Tyrion. It just wasn't practical to do it for a TV show and would of looked bad I think anyway. You could of gone straight from the first season to the second book. You do miss things but nothing major.
I have read all of the books and I absolutely love them. I would highly recommend them.
Edit: reading the books has not spoiled my enjoyment of the show either. You are that far ahead in the books that it's a little hard to remember some of things that have happened earlier.

Can it be over two and a half hours long?
Is it a trilogy, or can it be turned into one?
Can I film large-scale landscape shots of people running around in New Zealand?

It might have been better to have made lotr a series rather than a trilogy of films, but it would be so hard to do now because it would somehow have to make up for the lack of suspense that comes from not knowing what happens next.
I've read all of the game of thrones books, I don't think they're that well written. I enjoyed them because of the storyline, wit, and really interesting character development but there are parts where you end up questioning his wording and some sentences are ambiguous. The series feels more solid and structured, as if the writer knows where he's going, but the books leave a lot of loose ends and you get the feeling that there's no way he's going to manage to tie them all up by the time he publishes the last book (or dies, whichever comes first).
