Game of Thrones author George RR Martin is still working on the book series of Game of Thrones. After writing the first six seasons, Martin is yet to publish the forthcoming books. Game of Thrones adaptation has been hugely adored. The series garnered utmost love around the globe.
However the series’ finale from D. B. Weiss and David Benioff has been a huge disappointment. Since then, there has been plenty of speculation regarding the book’s end and Tv show’s finale. Fans are curious to find out how George RR Martain’s books actually end and how closely the endings of the TV show and books will match one another.
Addressing the speculation and fan’s curiosity, the author wrote on his site, “How will it all end? The same ending as the show? Different? Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes.”
Martin reminded readers that where the HBO series’ final season was limited to eight hours of screen time, he expects to have at least 3,000 manuscript pages in his final two books, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.
“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,” Martin wrote. “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.”
George RR Martin choose not to reveal much and wants everyone to read his books to find out the end.
“I’ll write it. You read it,” Martin wrote. “Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet.” The author also did not give a date when he might finish The Winds of Winter. However, one thing the author did assure is that the end will be different!
“I’ve been so slow with these books,” Martin toldRolling Stone. “The major points of the ending will be things I told [Benioff and Weiss] five or six years ago. But there may also be changes, and there’ll be a lot added.”
