He is not obligated to finish this series just because thousands of loud fans scream for him to write faster. Reminding him of his age and health is quite rude. His books should not be a product of our greed. I wouldn't want anyone else to write his books for him, and I would wait however long it takes. (less)

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

I'm not going to give away any spoilers, but I REALLY wasn't expecting it to go down quite like that in Game of Thrones last night.

Some seriously great moments, involving some of my favourite characters. I wonder if we will ever see this in the books?

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.

Dear George R.R. Martin, King of the Seven Kingdoms & beyond.
For the Seven Gods sake make it Se7en & no more please. We wish to read an ending in our current life..just This One..



It's Better saying "Why he ended the series in Seven" than "Why he kept the series going that far"

And you can kill Every remaining character in the next 2 ,you're doing that already ,we know

I've just started book one and it's awesome, fast thrilling and in perfect pace so far, and I know that what's next is bigger and

I'm upset. This was originally titled "A Time for Wolves"

Wolves = Stark family

A TIME FOR WOLVES IMPLIES GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO THE STARKS AND THAT MAKES ME HAPPY. THAT GIVES ME HOPE. PROTECT THE REMAINING STARKS !!

I'm just witnessing the end of the final season of the TV show, and unfortunately due to both the too-short number of episodes, and the series-writers not being very capable of filling the dots of character-consistencies, character-developments and organic plot-developments from earlier seasons (or existing book-storylines), looks like the finishing is not going to be truly as it should've been, rather a bit awkward in too-rushed too-hamfisted not-earned-in-any-way by the end. Which is why I'm m ...more

6/2/19 - The cover that was originally shown, has now been removed and the "shadow" beige book cover is back up. They also removed the 2019; then the 2020 publication dates. GR must now realize that these books will not happen any time soon.

One reviewer said that GRRM doesn't owe us anything and he can do what he wants. Not true, sir. He started this shit and expected everyone to follow along. We did and did not complain. We did and were so giddy for book 4 and book 5. We even journeyed to HBO

If GRRM doesn't die before finishing this book, perhaps I'll be able to read it with my grandchildren.
Oh, and just for the record, I liked the title A Time For Wolves so much more. We had a dragon-related title, why can't we have a wolf-related one as well?

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:(

The original title a Time for Wolves makes me so hopeful that a Stark will end up on the throne! Please please please George R.R. Martin live until the last book is published. I don't think I'll survive if the series has no conclusion/ending :O
