One of the best books I have ever read in my life is going to premiere as a show on HBO in less than 3 weeks.
A Game of Thrones is the first novel of the Song of Ice & Fire series by George R.R. Martin. I read it a few years ago for the first time and loved it. (I named one of my cats Tyrion after my favorite character) About a week ago I picked it up again in anticipation of the new show and I am loving it even more. If you are a fan of fantasy, medieval politics & warfare, or just a damn good story I'd encourage you to check it out, book or film.

I have been looking forward to this show for 2 years; my wait will finally end on April 17th. If you can read the book first, awesome! If not, I'm sure you'll still enjoy the show as much as I will on HBO.
The show is very well
cast. Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, & Lena Headey are major players just to name a few. Already halfway through my 2nd reading of the book the actors who are portraying my favorite characters have already taken their place in my mind's eye.
I'm posting this because I know it will be amazing and I'd love to be able to chat about the show with some of you. Also, the show IS airing in Europe... I believe on the Sky network.
