5 You may not get 7 individual books as shown, but PANIC NOT!MoleyB | 09/11/2012 | See all MoleyB's reviews (2)As the set I got had the final book as one volume, rather than 2 as pictured. But what you do get is a nice set that is ideal if you want to annoy people who are following the tv series and await season 3 as I type this :) Season 1 was closer to book 1 than I thought it would be. Season 2 combines books 2 and 3 and my feeling is that season 3 will cover books 3 and 4 with a snippet perhaps of 5. Anyway, an easy read that draws you into the story despite there being so many principle characters. All I'll say is try not to get too fond of them as Mr Martin has no trouble bumping them off, sometimes unexepectedly. No more spoilers from me but if you haven't got into the books yet and are enjoying the telly show, this is well worth a punt. Am on the final book as I write this and then I'll be as annoyed as those that climbed aboard at the start in the wait for the next part of 'A Song of Ice and Fire'. Oh. And I reallllllllly want my own Direwolf. Or seven. Enjoy.
