I'm currently reading the books and watching the show simultaniously (book 4 and season 4) and just think the story is one of the most beautiful I've ever read. I like how all the characters are separated and their story lines are slowly coming together. But of course each story is different. Which one is your favorite?
Mine is definitely Arya Stark. However is started out a bit boring and slow, but when she joins Jaqen H'ghar it suddenly becomes so mysterious and dark. She's then tested to the limit.
