I read the books and was THRILLED by this. Yes, it differs greatly from the books, but it answers the one huge burning question at the end of them re if someone is still alive, because one cannot participate in future activities if dead. They'd already spoiled the Night's King last season, and warned us they would pass the books. There are some storylines that will be weird without elements of the book, but Martin steered where this all went. It's congruent with where the books are headed, according to him. I think San's right re the mind warfare. Cool stuff :) And I think they would melt in the water or have issues. Not sure if it's just the salt, or any water (because it liquid form it's warmer than snow/ice) because of the temperature. Remember, they can't descent on Westeros until it's in a state of winter. When Jon's sword killed the white walker, I thought he was the prophecy/resurrection! Melisandre thinks it's Stannis, and I think she realizes this next ep it's not (it previewed a look of "uh oh"). We'll see! Very excited.

But, as Emy says, that is still a fan theory and not proven yet :).

If you truly want to know, google R+L+J.
Don't want to spoil it here for anyone else.
Slate.com has a good primer video on it.
