Game of Thrones season 7 will start in the Summer 2017 but the book on which the series is based upon is yet to see the sixth sequel.
George R. R. Martin said that he will be spending a lot of time writing the sixth book and we might wait a while longer for the book’s release.
The writer also announced that the Guadalajara International Book Fair will be his last public appearance until he is done writing the book. In an interview he made at the Fair he talked a lot about the book.
About the book he said:
“It is called The Winds of Winter, and I’ve been telling you for 20 years that winter was coming. Winter is the time when things die, and cold and ice and darkness fills the world, so this is not gonna be the happy feel-good that people may be hoping for. Some of the characters [are] in very dark places…In any story, the classic structure is, ‘Things get worse before they get better,’ so things are getting worse for a lot of people.”
We are used to cruelty but this really terrifies us. This statement may be connected to the White Walkers. When he spoke about the book’s end:
“We’ll see by the end of the book if I’ve left any loose ends. I hope not. That’s not to say that everything is going to be tied up completely neatly in a bow. I think there’s a difference between a loose end and something that’s deliberately left by the author ambiguous, or something for the readers to think about and worry about and debate about. For me, that’s part of the fun of reading and writing is having stories that maybe have a little ambiguity to them, a little subtlety to them, and everything is not crystal clear and laid out. You have to think about some things and put clues together and see what it all adds up to. So some of that is gonna be left there deliberately. But first I have to finish the damn thing.”
The Iron Throne is the tool of power for ruling. But who really deserves it it’s not a matter of ‘deserving’ but of ‘power. Martin gave a very diplomatic answer considering this question:
“I don’t know that ‘deserve’ is really an operative word. The Iron Throne doesn’t necessarily go to who deserves it, but to who has the power to take and to hold it. But there are things in the books where I indicate what a king should be, what separates a good king from a bad king…It should be a public service position. The king’s job is the land, the people of the land, to make them prosperous, to protect them, to defend them, to provide them with justice. And that’s what the ideal king should be. There have been previous few of them in human history, sad to say.”
If you hoped that he will give out some spoilers, we are sorry to tell you that he is giving NONE! A lot of questions were asked by his fans and Martin answered them all. You can see the whole interview below:
Up till now, we can only be satisfied with spoiler images and videos concerning season 7, which is most probably to be aired before the book is published.
Until an official trailer is aired, only speculations and questions are being raised about who is going to have a rough time in Game of Thrones season 7? What is your opinion?
