I am in the middle of reading this book for the first time. I am a little over half way through and I can't believe how much was left out of the movie. I really liked the movie a lot and still do, but now, after reading about 500 pages of the book ( a little over 300 still to go ) the movie feels almost "rushed" in compairison.

I am really debating on if I should see the 6th and 7th movies before I read the books so that Idon't feel "let down" when I see the movies. I already know pretty much who lives and dies and how, but there is still a lot of story i don't know.

Yea, they did rush the movie...but thats to be expected. It is the longest book in the series.

you should DEFINTALEY read the books first. The movies are way better that way, because even if they leave stuff out you still know everything else.
Very Happy

I would suggest reading books first. The suprises are much better when you know the whole story. It is better than seeing the main points in the movie and already knowing when you read the details.
