I've just started reading the series. I got a KindleFire for Christmas and got the set. I've seen some of the series on TV and so far it followed the book for me. I like reading better than watching for this because they cram too much into the programs. You can be leisurely with the reading.
I'll not come back until I'm done though to avoid the spoilers I keep seeing. So I'll see you all later with a comprehensive comment.
