No doubt the show is going to catch up with the books eventually.
So what should HBO do to keep us interested?
2015 - Season 5: They will finish eventually the book Dance with Dragons and feast for crows
2016-2017- season 6 and 7: Winds of Winter will be released by then . It is apparently a very detailed book with a lot of crucial events, therefore I am guessing HBO could squeeze in 2 seasons of storyline.
But what does HBO do now? A hope for Spring might come 2- 3-4 years after Winds of Winter
2018- Season 8- Aegon The Conqueror's quest and wars to claim the 7 KIngdoms
2019- Season 9- Robert Baratheon's rebellion ( this is the most interesting story in the books for me)
2020- Season 10- A Hope for Spring book
HBO is apparently making an insane amount of money with Game of Thrones. No reason not to keep it going until the 10th season if they make so much. Or, would they really take a 2-3-4 years hiatus until a Hope for Spint is delivered?
so guys what should i do.
i watched every episode of the Game of Thrones so far and all been great. but heres my problem. i assume the books, like every time, are much better than the series, right??
normally i read books first before watching a movie, like with lord of the rings. should i read these books first or is it still great to watch the series and then read the books and read some new things that werent in the series??
i totally enjoy being caught by surprise in the series as you never knows who is gonna die and how the plot develops
so, will it be great to read the books even after i watched the entire series ??
So, as a non-book reader, who is king? Since Jeoffrey was never supposed to be (incest) wasn't it originally supposed to be Stannis? And now won't it still have to be Stannis? But Tywin would never allow him to take the throne right? Would the populace have a revolution if the true king isn't put to power?
