This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the TV Show
   In the books, Arya doesn't know how to fire a bow and wishes she could learn. She has not shot a single arrow in any of the books. Arya is shown to be an accurate archer and shoots one past Bran unexpectedly and hits the target.
   In the book, a group (at least five) of "the Others" (White Walkers) approach Ser Waymar Royce, who has a duel with one of them before finally being killed by the group. In the TV series not more than two White Walkers appear, and Waymar is killed in a surprise attack by one. The wight girl, who frightens Will in the series, is never mentioned in the book.
   Events of the TV series are seventeen years after Robert's Rebellion. The books begin fourteen years after, thus the Stark children are each about three years older than their ages in the books. Robb and Jon Snow are 17 instead of 14 (turning 15). Bran is 10 instead of 7 and Rickon's age is increased from 3 to 6.
   The White Walkers are mostly called Others in the books, especially by the people of the Seven Kingdoms. It is the wildlings and Old Nan that refer to them as 'White Walkers'. The white walkers are referred to the white walkers and on rare occurrences "The others"
   In the books, Theon Greyjoy kicks the severed head of the executed deserter and laughs. This action disgusts Jon Snow, who dislikes Theon and vice versa. In the TV series, Theon does not kick the severed head of the executed deserter and he is shown to be on good terms with Jon before they part ways.
