Should Readers Be Angry at George R.R. Martin?

September 6, 2017

Now that Game of Thrones Season 7 is over, fans have to find other stuff to talk about for the next year (or maybe more). There were some great moments in Season 7, but there were a lot of pacing issues, and the dialogue wasn’t always as sharp as in previous seasons.

Game of Thrones Seasons 1-4 were so awesome because the TV show could directly use so much great material from the books. Now that the show has passed the books, the quality of the HBO series has gotten worse (in some ways) every season. Some fans blame the TV writers/directors/producers. I understand that. But maybe some blame could go to the author of the books, George R.R. Martin. Without original source material to work with, the TV show seems to struggle a bit. If he had sped up his writing, maybe the last few seasons of the TV show would have been better.

It’s probably too late for the new books to help what’s left of the TV show, but maybe George R.R. Martin should hurry up and finish the darn books anyway!

Some readers are angry with George R.R. Martin, claiming that he is taking too long with these books.  It’s been several years since the last novel, he’s working on other projects, his blog posts are long when he should be writing books instead, and the HBO series has caught up with his books.  In other words, fans are getting restless.

I understand.  I don’t read the Song of Ice and Fire series, but I empathize with frustrated fans.  When I was a kid, I got depressed after I saw The Empire Strikes Back because there was a cliffhanger…
