G.R.R.M. does not watch Game of Thrones


  • The gurm just doesn’t have the time to watch because of writing and "touring". (flkgjdlfkslmdmgkds) “The book series and TV adaptation go their separate ways. On the screen characters are killed right and left. About twenty of them have died already, which are quite alive to me and will appear in a new book.”



  • He attributes the succes of the show to the HBO formula: “Epic fantasy was born with the advent of "The Lord of the Rings" by Tolkien. After that, there were very popular book series - for example, made by Robert Jordan and Terry Brooks. Nevertheless, they remained being made for teenagers. And if they were made a series, then it would be a story for children about magic and dragons. HBO, which launched the "Game of Thrones,”pushed through all these conventions. They left a complicated plot, sex and violence.”



  • "When will “The Winds of Winter” be released?" Who the fuck knows. "I did not start to write slower over the years. I was working on the first book for six year and four years on the second one. Fantasists who release their novels every year, do not offer books of large volume. These are not 1.5k pages like mine, but, for example, 500. In addition, I have not become younger. Age does not add enthusiasm.”

I'm done. Do we believe him? And who do you think is still alive in the books?
