Have people not read the book? And yes the book is better as always.

The author of the books has said in interviews that he sees the TV series as a chance to improve upon the books because there are things about the books he wishes he had changed before publishing, so for the vision truer to the author's wishes the TV series is better

Oh yeah for sure! Even if you read the back of the books sometimes these things are given away

Or wait for the final of season/book 5 :) (for those who haven't read that book yet, do!!!!)

They cheated! Half the book (book 3 "Storm of Swords") is still left in the tv-series! More to come next year! Glad that the red wedding wasn't pushed.
