Have you read George RR Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series?

    This seems to be very popular among a lot of people. I was first introduced to this in college a few years ago, and I was immediately stuck to it, especially after completing the first book. Have you read it? If not, below is a link to Wikipedia explaining it (otherwise I would just copy and paste it, but a link is easier). It's definitely a gritty book, filled with intrigue, backstabbing, characters, wars, politics, romance, etc. It's been on the bestselling lists for a long time too.

    It's one of my favorite series! I am going crazy waiting for the next book, but lately GRRM's blog posts have been sounding promising that it might finally be coming our way.

    Did you hear HBO has picked up the series for a show based on the books? They've got a great cast- I'm almost as excited as I am for the next book!

    Yup.  It is pretty good, but I feel uncomfortable with his (mostly) unnecessary sex scenes. They're not titillating, mostly just creepy.  I'm a sucker for medieval politics, though.
