There’s a good news for Game of Thrones fans. George R.R. Martin who is the author of A Song of Ice and Fire book series, on which Game of Thrones is based has given hints regarding the way in which the series will get over. Till now we have seen many of our favourite characters suffering terrible fates and that has made many people believe that things might end in a dramatic way which may or may not be something that will make the fans happy.
George R.R. Martin who has been influenced a lot by J.R.R. Tolkien has said that he wants to end the series on the lines how the Lord of the Rings ended. He is planning a “bittersweet” for “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. In an interview with the Observer George R.R. Martin talked about the series and his plans about it’s end.
“I haven’t written the ending yet, so I don’t know, but no. That’s certainly not my intent. I’ve said before that the tone of the ending that I’m going for is bittersweet. I mean, it’s no secret that Tolkien has been a huge influence on me, and I love the way he ended Lord of the Rings. It ends with victory, but it’s a bittersweet victory. Frodo is never whole again, and he goes away to the Undying Lands, and the other people live their lives. And the scouring of the Shire—brilliant piece of work, which I didn’t understand when I was 13 years old: “Why is this here? The story’s over?” But every time I read it I understand the brilliance of that segment more and more. All I can say is that’s the kind of tone I will be aiming for. Whether I achieve it or not, that will be up to people like you and my readers to judge.”
