Re: A Song of Ice and Fire books
Theon seemed more diplomatic toward Prince Bran and Rickon in the book. I'm thinking of the scene where Theon sat on the edge of Bran's bed and explained how he was taking over Winterfell. In the show, I remember more a straight sacking and Rodrik's death. Oh, and I noticed that whereas the show uses actors for Tyrion and Ygritte that are more attractive than their book counterparts, Asha in the book seems more attractice than Yara. Book Stannis is more interesting than show Stannis. You have a sense of nobility about book Stannis that's there with show Stannis. However, there's also the fact that book Stannis headed a religious inquisition. It'd be interesting to see how show viewers would react to that.
"..the mere intimation that there might be more to a heroic narrative than the heroes are the Good Guys, the villains are Bad Guys and the heroes should Win a rousing Victory appears to be in itself such an offensive contention that it arouses a kind of defensive knee-jerk hysteria just by surfacing." - Richard K Morgan
