Would you still watch a show after it has diverged from the book?

For all the Game of Thrones fans, I’m sure you’ve heard the news. HBO’s Game of Thrones will officially be surpassing Martin’s book on which the series is based. Personally, this is a bit of an awkward situation for book fanatics such as myself, do I want to watch the show when it has spoilers for a book that hasn’t been written? Or what if they change the HBO version completely and suddenly one character is alive in the show but dead in the book. Considering Martin’s reputation with killing off characters this is very likely to happen.

What do you think? Will you still watch the show and continue to read the series? Will you stay loyal to either the book or show only?

Below is a link to a CBC article that shows some major/minor differences between the show and the book. Warning if you have not read the books or finished the latest season there are some spoilers.

  1. I will continue with both. I told myself this last season that I had to separate the two. I am bummed that the show is surpassing the books.
