    So I just started reading this yesterday, really good so far. There are a lot of fucking names thrown around just within the first 100 pages or so. Do all the names start making more sense as you read along? Oh, and I realize there is a thread on this but I did not want to ready any possible spoilers
  2. Re: Song of Fire and Ice ??

    They will start making more sense later. Maybe by the time you finish he'll have the next book out.. not likely though. And yes it's a great series.

    Yeah they start to make sense but expect more names as you continue the series.

    four are out. and i think they other thread got deleted. they are recasting some of the characters for the first season and still screening. and there are too many names to know who everyone is.

    Judging by your tags this isn't the series for you, I'm not saying Bran does die but don't become too attatched to characters because George RR Martin is ruthless

    Shooting the pilot currently. Already cast and probably will be a summer 2011 release which hopefully will coincide with lazy old ass getting Dance of Dragons out.

    Nah, I am aware that character are killed off pretty regularly, just a little dissapointed cause I had big things planned for Bran and his direwolf

    I just finished the first one. Crazy ending and makes you want to keep reading the rest of the series. My favorite is Jon and his direwolf. Ima be pissed if they die.

    I'm past pessimistic, I've just convinced myself he is never going to finish the series and stopped worrying about it.

    did someone say Bran would be king? i would say maybe Jon, but chance he might be part Targaryen and part Stark. And end up being one of the heads on the dragon. the whole series has been leading up to Dany retaking Westeros. so that has to happen.

    I remember the original thread on ASFAI, I told irush that dumptime would get pussy before Dance With Dragons came out.

    yea its because he wrote himself into a corner with the

    he says his biggest issue as to why its taken so long is concluding that part.

    good lord I'm forgetting all the threads.

    I've loved reading the series but I'm really not interested in re-reading all the books each time he takes a decade to release the next one. Gonna have to find some good summaries to reestablish where everyone is and what they are doing. Or not, since he's never gonna release the fucking things before he has a heart attack.

    johnhall83 New Member

    Re: Song of Fire and Ice ??

    He went too in depth, he never intended to cover what happened in the free cities like that. It was supposed to be the first two books, then the conclusion, in a trilogy iirc.
  41. Irush

    Irush New Member

    Re: Song of Fire and Ice ??

    plus he has to write the script for the HBO series and decide which characters get left out of it.

    I know he's probably working hard on it and he's kind of on average with the time between releases of the past books and if he never said he wanted book 5 to come out the year after 4 we wouldn't be bitching as much.

    still I just finished Feast for Crows and I'm going crazy. Hopefully Dance with Dragons comes out in the next 6-8 months.

    I have faith hell finis this book but what I worry about is him being old and very fat and still having two books to write after this one. He could die at any time and he's averaging like 5/6 years a book right now.
