I'm a terribly slow reader, but our library just got all the Game of Thrones books on CD, and I've had some massive solo road time. I was intrigued by all the praise and the plot summaries, but I hate that HBO made the series so... HBOish. I'm a little over halfway through the second book, Clash of Kings, right now. Lots of characters and interwoven plots, but each book could be about half as long if Martin omitted a few of his "this book is an epic classic, so here is a two page list of people who were present but you'll never hear about again and the menu of what they ate" sections.

I have to wonder if the books continue to get progressively more graphic, though. I've heard more than enough rape scenes already and am honestly considering giving up on the books and just reading wiki summaries instead.
