Game of Thrones season 8 that garnered wide criticism for its hasty and somewhat unsatisfying storyline failed to impress the writer of the famous novel the show was based on. In a recent interview with Fast Company, author George R.R Martin expressed his dissatisfaction over the last season of the HBO show.
“The [final] series has been… not completely faithful. Otherwise, it would have to run another five seasons,” said the author.
He added that there were a lot of differences between his books and the dramatic adaptation but creative differences are what happen in scenarios like these.
“Because sometimes their creative vision and your creative vision don’t match, and you get the famous creative differences thing – that leads to a lot of conflicts,” said Martin.
“You get totally extraneous things like the studio or the network weighing in, and they have some particular thing that has nothing to do with the story, but relates to ‘Well this character has a very high Q Rating so let’s give him a lot more stuff to do,” he further added.
Well looks like fans weren’t the only ones to feel upset with Benioff and Weiss’s work as the much-hyped show came to an end.
