I went into this series after watching the first season of the HBO show and, in all honesty, think that the show is a pretty solid attempt at the book. As for the novel itself, I think it's fine. The only shortcoming is that it moves at a glacial pace... But I was warned about that, so I guess that's fine (sort of).
The one thing that I am not sure if I love or hate is the repeated subtle hinting at some odd thing going on. Sometimes, I wish the author would just spit it out and, at other times, it works really well for the novel. Overall, an okay fantasy book.
