    Have you seen the 15 minute summary of last season that aired on HBO?

    While reading book three keep in mind that the book will basically be split into seasons 3 and 4, so if you complete the book and things seem like they are not moving fast enough in season three that would be why.

    Not yet but will watch it when someone posts the Youtube link. :D

    Yeah! My UVerse SP picked it up. That was welcome because I was thinking I needed to go back and watch the last few episodes of the last season to remember what's what and who's who.

    They did a good job with the briefing.

    In preperation for S3, I have started reading book 3. Actually, I started awhile ago, but have restarted again. About 2/3 of the way through now. If they do break Book 3 in to S3 & S4, they may need to move some the last part of the book forward. It seems that the first part was rather slow moving, but the second half picks up speed dramatcially.

    And also that elements of Book 4 will be in Season 3.

    As time goes by, they will adhere less and less to the exact structure of the books...which is good, because as time goes by the structure of the books becomes more of a mess.

    Watched the 15 minute recap. It was good, but not as much fun as re-watching Season Two will be. Which I will do before S3 starts.:)

    I read book three last year, I'm 88% thru book four now (Feast of Crows). I had heard, as Rob mentioned, that from this point forward they will focus more on telling a story, and less on chronological book order. So I figure I better have 3 & 4 read before this season airs.

    The books just keep getting denser, with so many plots and stories and peoples and deaths and journeys and whatnot, that I have no idea how they can make a single season at a time TV show from them. But I can't wait to see their efforts!:up:

    They could make a new episode every week of every year and still not run out of source material.:D

    Is there any chance that Martin will have book 6 ready any time soon? It wouldn't have to be as big as book 5--half that size would be good to tide us over.

    I looked around the web for news on book 6 right after I finished book 5. IIRC, a) it's going to be at least 2014 more likely 2015, and b) >1,200 pages. :eek:

    My guess is 2018 for book 6 @ 2000 pages.

    Last I'd heard was some time after he'd finished Book 5, and everything that he'd reported writing in Book 6 sounded like outtakes from Book 5. So I'm guessing we're in for another very, very long wait, unless he suddenly gets inspired like he hasn't been in a decade.

    He should watch the HBO show. It's pretty good.
