NO. The books are so much better. So much more detail in the world and its history. The twists are harder to see coming (the show made everything so obvious). If you have money to pick up the books and the time to read them, do it. The show did a respectable job adapting the book, but it still doesn't hold a candle to the source material.

Books contain so much more boredom, too.

Of the 5 books out so far, there was maybe a handful of chapters I was actually bored, and they were probably all in AFFC. I love detailed worlds. The only thing that really loses me is when there's like 3 pages dedicated to describing the food and such.

Ned's not even important. You'll soon come to realize that.

Ned is important. Maybe not to the end game, but he was the catalyst for everything to come. We learn a lot of important things in his chapters, too.

I've never looked more forward to a new season of a TV show than this. I just finished A Storm of Swords (book 3) a week ago and I'm just getting into book 4 right now. I'm hoping to be able finish book 5 before the season premieres. Shielding yourself from spoilers is tough. I had a few things semi-ruined and it sucks.

And don't skip the books, people! Despite how well adapted the show is, you can't beat the details and full story you get from the source.
