Esme's character is not in the books. Yeah, I read them. In fact, I just
read them this summer, when the fifth one was released. I'm still a nerd
at heart, I guess. The series consists of five books, about 1000 pages
each. There are two more yet to come, and they probably won't come very
soon, because there was a six-year quietus between the publication of
volumes four and five.
I made a great strategic error after getting hooked on this series. I
started out on the right track. My strategy for season one was perfect. I
watched all the shows first, then read the book. That's what you should do
if you like the series, because the books will fill in a lot more detail
that can't be covered in the time allotted to a television series.
But I was hooked, and curious, so I read ahead in the books, and I now
know how everything turns out, at least to the extent that the author has
finished the story. That means I've completely spoiled the next several
years of watching the show, and this is not a show you want to spoil,
because the author is not afraid to break all the rules with his plot
twists. Do you admire a character? Don't get too empathetic, because this
author may well kill off the guy who seems to be the hero. That's what
happened to Sean Bean's character in season one! There will be many more
wild twists like that in the future, and I regret that I've spoiled them
My advice is the following. If you have more will power than I, watch the
shows first, and then read the books only up to that same point in the
Enough bullshit. Here's the stills:
