'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Reaction Won't Change Books

Game of Thrones had one of television's most controversial finales in recent memory, but series creator George R.R. Martin is not letting the feedback change how he approaches his A Song of Ice and Fire novels.

If the hit HBO series ending has left a dragon-shaped hole in your life, maybe it's time to read (or re-read) the books published by George R.R. Martin so far.

"Yes, I told [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] a number of things years ago".

Many Game of Thrones fans had a lot of feelings about how the show ended, even almost two months after the final episode aired. Suddenly, the shocking twist is not so shocking anymore.

When that final book, A Dream of Spring, does come out, though, don't expect the author to change what he originally planned for his characters based on internet anger or what may or may not have happened on HBO.

Font, 29, has made 22 combined relief appearances for the Mets and Tampa Bay Rays this year, along with three starts for NY . The hurler is now earning $560,400 for the 2019 season so he does not bring any financial implications with him.

But Martin said that doing so would be "wrong", because "you've been planning for a certain ending and if you suddenly change direction just because somebody figured it out, or because they don't like it, then it screws up the whole structure". "I don't read the fan sites", he said. He confirmed that he will not change the ending of his books following the overwhelming criticism aimed at the show: "I want to write the book I've always meant to write all along". Others were content to say it could've been better, and there are others still who have hope George R.R. Martin's book ending will be an improvement on the series' final leg. Of particular interest was whether or not Martin would account for the wildly divisive reactions of fans and critics to the final, twist-filled season of the series in laying out the narrative strands of his novel collection's closing books. Numerous complaints surrounding Game of Thrones' last season had to do with previously complex storylines being rushed - something that shouldn't be an issue given how long Martin's books typically are (and how much time goes into writing them). Lastly, Martin opened up about the pressure of working to finishing A Song of Ice and Fire books as the show quickly caught up to him.

Many fans have voiced their disappointment over the writing and character development of the final season. [The books and the show are] like two alternate realities existing side by side. But while he says this type of behavior won't change how the books will play out, he did admit that it's absolutely tempting to want to do so.

"There's no longer a race", he said. Writing an ending fans have already hinted they won't like isn't great, but neither is shifting course and writing two books that may feel disconnected from prior books.

"I don't only want to finish it, I want to make it as good as I possibly can", the author explained to EW.
