I have only watched the TV show but the books seem to get a lot of praise from people I know so I might pick them up.

I'm half way through the second book now, after re-reading the first book and deciding to read further. Must admit, I've been trying to ignore the TV series, but I'll probably get season 1 on DVD when it's cheaper.
The reviews for Book 4 haven't been great, anyone read it?

I know how you feel, i felt like that when i was 11, but i tried reading books in english (and had no option for games, since most developers released games only in english/german/polish), now i have read (in english) 13 warcraft books/pocket books/short stories, Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, my studies' books, i watch TV series, etc.. The point is: it's very important to try and read in english to improve your skills, even though you'll only understand the book after reading it for the second or third time.

(* counting the split-volume book 3 as one; I haven't got to the recently-released one yet, but it looks like it's out in paperback later this week, so I guess I might as well start that soon.)
(On a similar vein, I've recently read some stuff by Joe Abercrombie, who seems to be frequently compared to GRRM, so that might be a good place to look for anyone wanting more generally-not-very-magical fantasy with generally-a-bit-nasty characters but with more humour and less amateurish book covers (at least in the UK editions).)

Yes A Feast for Crows and A Dance With Dragons haven't received unanimously positive reviews, but as you say, I'll review them for myself
