The final season faced criticism like none other. People were not very pleased and it gathered an array of reactions.
Why is George Martin so happy?
It might not be pleasing to the audience, but the author, George RR Martin is more than happy at the culmination of the HBO serial. He stated in an interview that now that the serial has ended he can comfortably finish his remaining of the two novels which are to follow.
His fictional novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, has the first 5 novels picturized as the hit television series, The Game of the Thrones. Since the demand for each season was so demanding, there was immense pressure on him to complete his novel each time so that the conclusive season could be shot as the next season. This immense pressure was affecting the writing quality and was making the author unable to deliver his best writing, Martin stated.
He admits, as now the serial series has ended, and there is no evident pressure from the production for the next release at the earliest, he is happy and at peace. This will allow him to write at his comfortable pace.
His novel series has five novels published so far. The first being The Game of Throne, followed by A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons. There are novels upcoming, The Winds of Winter and the last one, A Dream of Spring.
