JRR Tolkien or George RR Martin? Or both.
I watched the movies/series before reading the books. The Tolkien books are great. The movies are OK. Now that I have HBO Now, I'm doing the same thing. I've been taking the crash course GOT 101 this week. The books are most likely better than the series, and I'm liking the series well enough, but I feel obligated to start reading the books now that the series finale starts today.Tomorrow.
