    I don't want Sanderson to finish it, I'd rather he just do his own shit.

    Yeah, I read most of the books when I was in high-school and thought they were really cool. Now that the show is out, and I don't have the same time to read door-stopping novels, I will admit that I have more of a desire to see the show's ending.

    And I don't think the last book will ever come out. I will just enjoy the show ending.

    I've been waiting for more story about Samwell at the Citadel as well as Jamie and Brienne for over ten years and that mouse fart worth of plot advancement in the last book doesn't count The last time I had to wait anywhere near this long was with The Dark Tower and boy do I not feel rewarded for my patience on that one. Are there any shining examples of a series taking this goddamn long and not ending up shit?

    Quick googling says LOTR took 17 years. Gone with the Wind, Catcher in the Rye, and The Brief Wonders Life of Oscar Wao took a decade each. Jurrassic Park took 8 years.

    So...there's hope?

    That fat fuck is never going to finish this series. Plus side for me and all other decade plus book readers: new content on HBO from now to the finale.

    Someone else said it earlier but it was so fucking outlandish I didn't believe it. But it's true. since 2000 and Bill Clinton, we've had more US presidents than books published. That's 8 years of Dubya and and 8 Years of Osama, and soon to be 8 years of Trump.

    Facebook just reminded me that exactly six years ago I finished reading ADWD.
