A song of ice and fire

No there's still no Winds date, but rather than continue to mess the TV thread with book discussion, do you think the shows beats are going to be replicated in the last two novels.

 

I can see a few - Jamie knighting Brienne seems like it must happen, but I'm unsure about everything else. Even the big stuff, like Danny going bad seems suspect and I wonder if GRRM will deliberately end it differently anyway. 

 

Thoughts?

The last thing we hear is Brienne shouting a word. I think between an interview and a sample Winds chapter it's confirmed

 

Spoiler

She tells "Sword", and has went to find Jamie and take her to Lady Stoneyheart. 

 

I don't expect either to die at that point, seems way too early, but Pod might be fucked.

He has spent way too much time on the 3 eyed raven storyline to drop it as easily as it was in the series. 

 

And Arya will have more to do in the final couple of books, convinced of that. I hope that he does take a very different approach, why the hell not at this point.

I assume he's gonna change any plans he had on the plot depending on the tv audience reaction, he could see it like a massive beta test in that regard. Then he just needs to decide if they hate things for good reasons so he should drop 'em or things he can fix by writing twenty pages about the ingredients of a feast. I don't see that he's as much reason to bring back fan-service characters who disappeared long ago, and/or keep them alive for an hour of being swarmed by baddies.

I think it diverged too much anyway. 

much anyway. There'll be some of the same beats worked in, but I doubt it'd have went this way anyway. The 'winner' makes zero sense in the book context, and I can't see it happening.

Like, the Bloodraven is a fucking tree. Like a proper fucking tree. There's no way Bran ends up on the throne unless it's some weird symbolic stuff. 

 

I'm unconvinced by

 

Spoiler

Dany's turn

 

because I suspect there is more to the "Mad King" than we've been told to date. Books Targs have a history with visions, and I expect something drove him mad rather him being an out and out bad 'un. Maybe even Bran, trying to do something. It'd add another layer on a story we've already got a few perspectives on.

 

Would really like Winds now please. Kinda half hoped for an announcement today, but that was a crazy hope.

Yeah I'm much more excited about this now given the flat ending to the TV show. I will need a serious recap to see where characters are though! Wasn't there a map/website with all that info on?

The world of Ice of Fire is a great app for catching up.  I think Dany will still turn but it’ll be played out much longer. There’ll be no night king. Bran ends up on the throne but it’s because he’s the bloodraven and not bran

Hussah! It's here and I'm reading it at work :ph34r:

Had an email through at 1.10am so assume it must have been available at the same time.

I did the evil deed but I’m going to buy a physical copy at lunch time. I’m going to stay out of the thread until I’m finished. See you all on the other side.

Mine downloaded sometime between midnight and 1am. No formatting errors that I've found so far (bar the capitalisations at the start of chapters already mentioned.)

I will see you all in a couple of weeks. Please don't be all over Twitter posting spoilers.

I was sssoo addicted to that series back then, sadly after the disaster that the TV show was and the fact he's going to keep the ending similar I've pretty much given up. Won't read any more of them as there's far better things out there. I am currently plodding my way through the entire Krondor series by Raymond Feist as there's a good bit of fantasy I've never given much time to before. Plus it has a proper final book!

Wow that is ages, even more worrying is that he added more threads in a Dance With Dragons, all that stuff with wargs remember? 

 

I still think the first three though are incredible books, just stop reading after the battle at the wall (I think?)
