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.

No spoilers.

Great first episode :D Nice reintroduction to the characters - sort of necessary considering how long we were left waiting.
There was an element of cheese though that I hope doesn't last the whole season. As with pretty much every episode of the series, it ended with me thinking how awesome the next episode is going to be. dumdum dada-dumdum dada-dumdum...

I don't personally follow GoT but I swear I will temp ban anyone that comes with spoilers, don't be that ass, speak about the episode the day after it aired in SA rather.

The screen displays "GAME OVER, please insert more credits"

The year is 2192 and 13 year old John Snow was actually in a virtual reality game in an arcade centre.

The game is called G.O.T. The mission is to win the throne.

That would be an ending .... but i think that there in lies the problem with this season. In that we all know its going to end in (now) 5 episodes, and regardless of how it ends it will be a disappointing, anticlimax. Surely it wont live up to all the hype around the ending.

Probably not given there are budgetary constraints and real world technical limitations. Plus with the limited runtime there will likely be barely any epilogue.

There's always book 7 and your imagination though (though that is still faaaaar in the future).
Which will be VEEERY different considering things like Cersei has no ability to hire the Golden Company as they are already engaged with another contender for the Iron Throne, one the show didn't care to/have the ability to include. And Sandor Clegane is very very dead.
