Guess the other thread got bumped off. General discussion of the books (and Game of Thrones by extension).

I wasn't fond of it but I bought the first book.

The other thread got killed in a mid-book plot twist that left channers reeling.
You've read all the books haven't you, C-higgle?

>>69298 I read it before it was cool.

Tho I wonder if the plot in the last book will be different from the tv-series, similar to how Fullmetal Alchemist was. R.R. Martin sure liked them food sequences.

I wonder, too. Doesn't GRRM like messing with people's expectations? What an opportunity to miss if he didn't change some major plot points (or give HBO a less-than-accurate rundown of how it's supposed to go).

I mean, there are a lot of things that happened in the book which would completely change how these last two seasons are happening right now. So I feel like the pathway to the ending at least will differ

I imagine it will be a lot different than the series.
It's just that starting in season 5 after the books ended, a lot of seemingly illogical, out of character stuff started happening. And stuff that felt like the books were foreshadowing just fell off and weren't ever touched on. But who knows.

I know the books will be finished, it's just a matter of when, and if he is the one finishing them. I hope it's soon.

I will enjoy the rediscovery of Sandor in the books (crossing my fingers). It would be nice if Arya, whenever she returns to Westeros, will be the one to find him. Perhaps on her way to kill Cersei she passes by the monastery where a lot of readers believe Sandor is doing some monk-y therapy. This brings him to his brother, too.

On Arya: do you find her abilities as a water dancer to be believable for the relatively short amount of time she trained with her master? It does not seem like an art that one can self teach after a year of lessons, even if they were very fine lessons. She's not passed off as a super duper sword fighter, but she does train on her own and is shown to be very determined.

Originally, there was going to be a time jump of several years between the books. Could GRRM still do a jump?

I thought the books were fun to read, but the TV series being massively popular has honestly ruined the entire world for me. I just know that the future books will likely be influenced by the show instead of the way GRRM would have written the story had there been no show. As hyped as I was for the next book after finishing A Dance With Dragons, I've decided I won't read it or any of his subsequent works at all. Hope everyone else enjoys them, though. Yes, I am this butthurt about it.

The most pretentious people are the ones that don't like something specifically because of its popularity.

I think he's already hinted Sandor being still alive in the books, at some point we're with some monks and a massive new acolyte of theirs drops something heavy in the background of a scene, and I think there's something about the monk saying that he found Sandor on a riverbank, and that "the hound is dead" or similar

I gave up about half way through dance with dragons. I will pick it up again one day. I honestly think GRRM is waiting for the series to end so the books can take on their own life again mainly because when reading dance with dragons i would begin thinking of the tv show and it would fuck with how i was reading the book until it became too muddled and i had to put it down.

We won't get Winds Of Winter this year, but the fat fuck managed to churn out the first book in a 2 book series about the history of Westeros, basically his version of Silmarillion.

So, who is gonna finish the books for him after he kicks the bucket? Steven Erikson is what I want, but many think Joe Abercrombie will get the gig, who I am not so hot on.

Yeah I'm sure that whenever they do finally get published I'll have to go back and read the last few books because all the deviations of the show have probably fucked up my memory of the story.

Yeah it's pretty clear that what he is doing is trying to add as much as possible to the universe and to his legacy before he goes. He probably has quite a few books all outlined and 75% written but he's trying to pump out as much as possible. Can't really blame him for that though I do resent that I've been waiting so long.

Sandor Clegane died and you need to accept that already.
This isn't an anime and not everyone who doesn't get their head chopped off/squished is coming back to fly through the vacuum space using the Force. Some people just die between the lines and then continue to be dead.
