What a colossal waste of time. I feel cheated and abused after reading 3,000 pages of your drivel. No more.

shame on you mr. martin i say this rather loosely because following the books for years and going through the dissappointments of false release dates after false release dates you should be concerned about finishing your freaking books at least adwd before doing anything else!!!!!!!!!!! you give writers a bad name because you are more concered with your pocketbook than the people who really like your books, even robert jordan is making a effort and he is dead!!!!!!! does not say too much for you as you will not read this you hire someone else to do that. so i say piss off Mr george r.r. martin.

Dear mr Martin,

Actually I have the adventure so far. Even if there is never an ADWD ,I would be diappointed of course , but still it's been a great read up to this point. It takes as long as it takes !!

Carry on Sir. Shrop

Hello Mr. Martin,
I've just recently become a fan. I was able to read all 4 books of Ice and Fire, one right after another. I am bereft. I need closure. I am forced to increase my dosage of Lexapro. Even if the 5th book isn't completely finished, please, please give us what you got. We can live on that until you are finished.

Here, here! I second this. He's wasting his time writing mediocre books in other genres when he should be focusing on dividing this next one into the two books he's promised his readers for a LONG LONG time. Why doesn't he hire someone to help if he doesn't want to do it himself?

Don't listen to 'em, George! Please take your time. Mediocrity is rushed. I'll wait for a masterpiece. Your number 3 fan (Because I know therre are at least 2 more fanatical fans than I am)-Geoff

Sara, please take your pom-pom's someplace else, and please refrain from celebrating George's reprehensible work ethic. For those of us keeping score at home:

AGOT - 1996
ACOK - 1998
ASOS - 2000
AFFC - 2005
ADWD - 2011-12

If anything Sara, the more time that George spends dragging things out, the more the quality of work declines. I think we can all agree that AFFC was mediocre compared to his previous three efforts, and since it took the longest for him to write, your assertion that "Mediocrity is rushed" is false. If anything, the longer he drags things out, the more ADWD will suffer.

It is just sad to see a writer with so much talent in narrative and character development utterly fail to pull the strands together.

I am really disappointed that Mr Martin appears to spend far more time and effort on other ventures than on completing, or even continuing, this series. Such a shame. Perhaps it is because he CAN NOT rather than that he WILL NOT.... perhaps someone (HBO?) has stuck too much silver down his throat and he's choking on it.

I have no idea what has happened with this guy but no one should buy a single work he does, or that his publisher offers, until he FINISHES Ice and Fire.

I agree completely. I haven't read Crows yet because I want to wait until Dragons comes out. The two were meant to be one and I think he made a huge mistake splitting them the way he did. How can you maintain continuity and pull those threads together when you divide the narrative the way he did?

Don't keep filling Mr. Martin's pockets with money. Another "writer" who thinks his readers are complete morons and that he can keep writing trash based on one or two successful books. If you cheat me once, shame on you, if you cheat me twice, shame on me. Don't let Mr. Martin keep cheating readers.

So wait: if George would have died right after writing Feast, are you telling me you would have never read the first 4 books? Or recommended them? I seriously started the series thinking there were only 3 books in the series, and am just happy there will be, or even may be, more to come!

Anthony Rago says:
I agree. I read the first book and if I remember clearly, Martin said (either in the forward or somewhere else) that a good writer has a beggining, a middle and and end. I thought he was digging at Robert Jordan (for good reason) and here he is doing the same and worse. At least Jordan stuck to one story at a time instead of writing several others as Martin has done. He should be ashamed to look in the mirror. I don't expect him to rush a book - but come on! This is pathetic.

Its almost as if George got blocked at the end of ASOS and as a coping mechanism started writing "What if" chapters. Like what would Westeros look like from Brienne/Cersei/ Ironborn/Dornish perspectives? Then he decided to try to sell it to us as a filler for the next novel which , ya know, actually advances the relevant plotlines (Jaime excluded).

I'm definitely going to be "that guy" that buys the hardcover of Dance on release date, keeps the receipt, reads the book that week, then returns it to the bookstore. Just as I did for Jordan's Crossroads of Twilight and Knife of Dream.

If you wait for the series to complete you can borrow most/all from the library and skip buying. Way to to stick it to the man!

All I have to say is that i am sick of people complaining..... He is enjoying what he does and making profit, enjoying his life. There is a lot more to life than a book. GET OVER IT. There are other books to read. the book will come when it will come. no amount of shaking your fist and hitting your head against a wall like a child in tantrum will make it be done any faster. In fact, I congratulate this authur for being a success. LIVE, GROW, THRIVE, and get some perspective :)
have a GOOD DAY !

I think that's the point. We are over it. We're over being lied to & we've chosen to stop the madness. Our perspective is obviously deeper than yours. I wouldn't put it past the author to plant these shallow naysayer posts. It's a small step from hiring someone to "clean up" your own website. I agree there is a lot more to life, but not simply making profit and enjoying it. Keeping promises, morality and ethics are paramount.

I dont think you understand what I am saying. It is a book. It is not worth getting angry over. I love the series and have been waiting for as long as anyone else has for the next book. hostility, even if it is just words, does not help anything. and besides keeping promises I can understand, but you cant spout that the author has no morality or ethics JUST because he hasnt put a book out when he says that he will. that displays a lack of perspective. and i didnt mean that making a profit and enjoying it is all there is to life. not at all! I meant fulfillment.. he seems fulfilled. you cant begrudge a man that. and i certainly dont. unlike a lot of people who are also avid readers, I dont get offended when an author doesnt put out a book on time. We have books because of the authors. ultimately, the story is theirs to do with as they will. and i respect this.
