George RR Martin Hints that The Winds of Winter Could Be Bigger Than A Storm of Swords and A Dance With Dragons


Recommended Posts

On his not a blog, Martin recently spoke briefly, about The Winds of Winter.

Quote

THE WINDS OF WINTER is going to be a big book.   The way it is going, it could be bigger than A STORM OF SWORDS or A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, the longest books in the series to date.   I do usually cut and trim once I finish, but I need to finish first.

Although he's already hinted at the size and scope of the book in the past, I love that he's reconfirming. Fans have been waiting an eternity for this new book so the more material we get the better! He could make the book 2,000 pages and I would still devour it. George's writing is excellent and I feel like his prose improves with each new book release.

I know some people were critical of Feast of Crows and Dance with Dragons but I personally found those books to be as high quality as the earlier entries.  The big issue that many fans had with those is that their favorite characters were mostly split between the two books. By making The Winds of Winter longer hopefully George has solved this issue and will be able to consolidate the different perspectives into one book. I highly suspect that he's done just that.
