Enjoy the show, folks, the books are never being written


Based on the people who ride the blue line this series is the only books in actual print. It's not like these books are good. Just release something and collect an amazing amount of money.


literally nothing redeeming about you at all


His next step is to read the books in order to confirm his preconceived notion of how awful they are

The only thing I remember him liking is Derrick Rose. Which I'm assuming society forced him to do.
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

Im just saying he should cash in. I'm not trying to stop you from enjoying your books. I'm a world where people have access to nearly every published book in western literature but are actually reading Star Wars movie novelizations the standard of quality is so low that that George Martin's remaining fans wouldn't even notice that he mailed it in.

Also we are talking about people who read Feast for crows and decided to continue to read this guys books. They don't care about quality, they just want to find out what happens to their favorite characters. Are they dead are they alive but is their mom this person or that person Nd could their dad be this other guy!?

I read them through 4. and I'm not going out on a limb by saying 4 is terrible, you probably agree with me search your feelings you all know that to be true. I can't imagine book 5 isn't garbage.

I also love Ween and they are getting back together for a few shows (at least, to start) so in really positive about that at this time.

Compare them to Geroge Martin. There is a lot to be said for releasing material so that your fans will enjoy it, something that Martin evidently either is unable or refuses to do. Just because Ween reached creative heights with two masterwork albums, it didn't stop them from releasing a couple feast for crows type efforts in a timely fashion and moving on.

A Feast for Crows was really good, with some great writing, you [expletive].

The Jaime and Blackfish meeting itself makes the book worth it.

We got some good South Park episodes out of it, at least

4 was a decently written book that was almost entirely about characters people didn't care about.

5 was bad.
