FYI, 'Brandon overhears a plot to overthrow the King from the Queen in a conversation with her brother and lover Jaime Lannister is pushed from a high height by Jaime Lannister and falls. Brandon is left paralysed.' is the same as 'Brandon falls and becomes paralysed after overhearing a conversation between the Queen and her brother, Jaime Lannister' the first one just has more words. And both are wrong anyway, he found Cersei and Jaime having sex.

The direwolves are not wolves, but they aren't German shepherds. They're northern inuit dogs. An unrecognized breed that resembles wolves.

Should mention the arbitrary names changes that assume the public are stupid, eg. Jaime - Jamie...

Age of the characters is barely mentioned in the show, but in the book all the young characters are ages 12-16 (most of them). Also not mentioned here, in the book Daenarys (misspell?) is haunted by her brother in her dreams with him threatening her by saying "You don't want to wake the dragon!" while in the show this never occurs.

There are so many errors on starting with Page 1: First off Gregor Clegane A.K.A. The Mountain That Rides is described as nearly 8 ft tall in the ASOIAF series. His first actor Conan Stevens is 7'1". Second Petyr Baelish A.K.A. Littlefinger has a a small pointed beard on his chin in both the books and the show. The White Walkers DO have white skin as we saw in the Season 2 finale. We just never got a good look at one during Season 1 due to the light. The mythological race is referred

"The mythological race are referred to as the Others." Then you go to the post over that one, and they are called "The White Walkers," which is what they were called in the show, not the movie.

The young stark son is 3 in the book, then, in the show, is 6.
