The ending in books will be different: George R R Martin

Since the release of season 8 of Game of Thrones, fans are not so happy about how the show-runners have shaped the show. Throughout the last season, the show has delivered nothing but dissatisfaction. The show which has an overall IMDb rating of 9.5, received only 4.4 in the last episode. Recently George R R Martin wrote in his blog that the ending will be different from the show.

How will it all end? I hear people asking. The same ending as the show? Different? Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes.

Martin also congratulated the fans, crew, David Benioff, Dan Weiss, Bryan Cogman, and Richard Plepler.

Martin also wrote that he will finish The Winds Winter as soon as possible, he knows it is late but all he wants is time. The seventh book of his famous The Song of Ice and Fire is A Dream of Spring. He also shared that as a producer he has got five series in development at HBO (“some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros”), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel.

Book or show, which will be the “real” ending? It’s a silly question. How many children did Scarlett O’Hara have? How about this? I’ll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet.

Martin also said that, “I am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget. They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before I’m done… and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I’ll add them. And of course the butterfly effect will be at work as well; those of you who follow this Not A Blog will know that I’ve been talking about that since season one. There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books… so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. And yes, there will be unicorns… of a sort…”

So are you happy with the way series ended or are you planning to start reading the books?
