What’s it about: Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R.

A Song of Ice and Fire takes place on the fictional continents Westeros and Essos and features warring factions of familys as well as dragons, unstoppable ice zombies, and mystical forces trying to prepare for the coming winter.
Where can you check it out (Officially):
A Song of Ice & Fire (Novels)- Check your local library or book store
Game of Thrones (Live Action TV)- HBONow,
Where to start:
Like most adaptions, the books and the series start telling their own stories and characters are changed or are discarded completely. Each chapter in the books are told from a characters first person point of view whereas the episodes encompass multiple characters doing multiple things. I would recommended starting with the books and see if you like the style of storytelling and if not, continue with the show.
