Game of Thrones’ final episode for the season was last week, and I’m already finding the withdrawals to be unnerving. I feel HBO was wise having George Marten contribute to the production. The book will always be better than the show, but it was nice to see HBO and Marten do a fabulous job bringing the book from print to television.
As an author, it’s wonderful to see a renown series come to life on the screen without the content being stripped of its essence. I’m confident the producers will continue their due diligence as they develop the future episodes. There will always be the “Screen vs. Book” argument, but thus far, HBO has conducted themselves admirably, and should be proud of this accomplishment.
We will have to wait and see what becomes of the war between the lion and the wolf…and all the other noble Houses thrown into the fray. Until next season…
