Whos going to wake up at 3am just to watch tv? I mean your going to be so tired its not going to be enjoyable 🤷‍♂️
Just so you can tell everyone at work the next day how cool you are. You cool dude! :)

Spoiler:

John becomes a white walker and becomes a Night King
Tyrion is going to pomp a dragon and make tiny dragons
Jami is going to kill Cersei
Sansa, well who cares, she can die to.
Daenerys is going to go mad like the mad king.
The Night King just wanted to be warm again so he went south.
Arya kills everyone on her list except the last person who ends up killing her.



Didn't see that one coming did you

So many things are so much nicer in the books. And not every 2nd character is a homosexual.

For instance Rob actually does take Casterly Rock and only thereafter attends the Red Wedding. They actually start fudging with time a lot from season 3 onwards.
Catelyn released Jamie because she was grieving over Bran and Rickon, but in the show she only finds out much later. Sam is made fun of for making up the story of killing the whight but in the book he actually kills one on the Fist of First Men in view of other rangers and gets his name that way.

How is spyder and little finger in the books?

Also in the books is this like lord of the rings or wheel of time style which is a hard read to remember all of the complex charaters

Like gemmel which is easier to read

Varys is awesome in both. Littlefinger is much clearer of his intentions in the show, he's playing a slower less obvious game in the books.

Umm, probably Wheel of time though I don't know it.
It's all perspective chapters where the books follow around various cast members, and yes, you need to remember them all.

Especially Book 4 and 5 that happen concurrently. (and the books end with Jon Snow being stabbed to death for now).

5 Ending sort of around Season 5 at the moment, with Jon being stabbed probably to death.

4 and 5 take place concurrently. For instance Book 4 doesn't feature Denaerys, Jon, Tyrion or Bran. Their stories only continue from where things left off in Book 3 in Book 5. But you do hear about some things that happened to Jon from Sam in Book 4 though. In Book 5 Jon's story however starts before he sent Sam off.
Book 4 is a bit of a hard read because you're burning with questions after the end of everyone's respective chapter in Book 3 but now instead you start following "lesser" characters like Sansa, Cersei, Brienne. And occasionally a random because the author needs to move another thread of the story elsewhere.
