It's good. Real good.

Audible has AKotSK read by Harry Lloyd (the actor who plays Viserys in GOT season 1) and that's real good, too.

I have the graphic novel version of the third story, but I haven't opened it up yet.

Honestly, I'd probably rather GRRM finished these novellas than the main series--I'm gonna get the major plot points from HBO anyways.

I've seen the movie, not read the book. I don't think there was anything about forcing him to write the next book?

I read the book, didn't see the movie. She was absolutely "forcing" him to write "the next book".

This is true in both the book and the movie.

Guess it's been a while since I watched it. I did check wiki which agrees with the mutt.

Accurate. Misery dies in the most recent published book. She finds this out while he's staying with her. She makes him burn the next book, which he just finished, and write "Misery's Return" where she comeback to life.

Really? That's pretty different than the book.

I read the book then watched the movie, I guess I just glossed over the differences.
