George R.R. Martin Reveals a GoT Secret
Don't Worry There Are No Spoilers
I think he is bluffing! Or is he?
In a recent interview 'Game Of Thrones' author George R.R. Martin said that some super fans have actual guessed the ending.
"So many readers were reading the books with so much attention that they were throwing up some theories and while some of those theories were amusing bulls — and creative — some of the theories are right,"
"At least one or two readers had put together the extremely subtle and obscure clues that I'd planted in the books and came to the right solution."
The interview was at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. He says even though fans have guessed the ending, he has no plans to re-write it.
"I’ve wrestled with this issue, because I do want to surprise my readers. I hate predictable fiction as a reader, I don’t want to write predictable I wrestled with that issue and I came to the conclusion that changing it would be a disaster, because the clues were there. You can’t do that, so I’m just going to go ahead. Some of my readers who don’t read the boards, which thankfully there are hundreds of thousands of them, will still be surprised and other readers will say: “see, I said that four years ago, I’m smarter than you guys."
