10/14/12 I'm just going to go ahead and assume that my daughter, who was negative 7 when A Game of Thrones came out, will be sexually active and possibly married with children by the time this book is released. Just call me Granny.

I promise you this Mr. George Arr Arr Martin, if you have the audacity to die before you finish this series, I will wait patiently until I die as well, all the while plotting my revenge, then I will suck your spirit down into an abyss filled with thousands and thousan...more

I googled the average life expectancy of an American male. It seems that George r r martin will live just long enough to finish his series, with just two or three years of retirement left over.

I love this rant from a fellow reader's review: "I promise you this Mr. George Arr Arr Martin, if you have the audacity to die before you finish this series, I will wait patiently until I die as well, all the while plotting my revenge, then I will suck your spirit down into an abyss filled with thousands and thousand of clones of Kathy Bates with sledge hammers and Dr. Quinn Medicine Women. They will all stand in line, each waiting for their chance to break every bone in your body and then heal...more

How can it have 4 1/2 stars when it hasn't been WRITTEN yet?

Oh my god. How devastated would I be if he died before he was finished with this. Like I would cry myself to sleep.

Life goal: live longer than my favorite characters or at least until the series are finished.

Good lord. I was 15 when the first book in this series was released and I will be almost 40 when the last one is released?? I was planning on reading Game of Thrones in January but do I really want to start this? I will definitely end up having to read them all over again!

Will I be teleporting to pick this one up or just getting it beamed directly into my head?

Seven hells!!! Expected publication of 2019?!

Ok, so it's better than 2020... But at this rate the TV series will be finished before the books they're based off of
I'm almost happy that the expected publication date is set for 2019. Somehow, I don't trust GRRM to finish two huge books in 6 years. I imagine myself, almost 30 then, god knows where and doing what, waiting for this book to come out. It would be really funny if it wasn't so sad:(

2020..DAFUQ? I'll have graduated college by then and probably have a career...Actually, my main concern is that he might die before he finishes the series...

At the rate Ser George is writing this I hope I am around while this actually sees the light of the day and hopefully not struck with a case of alzheimer's else all the years of my labor of reading the mammoth monstrosities that are the prequels to the final chapter of this series will have become a waste, since even if I manage to get my hands on this one I won't be able to make the head or tails of it.

Not to mention the fact, I hope Ser George at least lets a few of my favorite characters mak...more
Damn. I'll be in my mid-late 30s when this comes out. Wow. And to think I thought I had it easy by diving in at book #5. Will GoodReads even be around then? ha.

I started this series 15 years ago, and have to wait another 6 to finish it. That is 21 years to read 7 books. Good pace.
They better start breaking each book into 2-3 seasons of the show, else what are they going to do after filming the 5th book?
