I started reading "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R.R. Martin many years ago. I've been a big fan of his work for a long time. Now that the TV Show "A Game of Thrones" is out, I see a lot of people who haven't read the books start posting on Facebook and other sources saying that they can't wait for the episodes to show, etc. I know for a fact that they haven't read any of the books, but yet they love the TV show.
Does anyone ever feel like those people aren't really true fans and that they are just kind of liking "what's new."
I see the same thing with the Twilight series. One of my friends always used to tell me how much they hated people who never read the books and are now a fan because of the films.
Do you think people need to read the book(s) to be a real fan of a series/film? I'm curious of your thoughts.
