      I never read the books and I prefer visual than imaginations, should I start catching up and reading it? would it be any different with the show?

      I'll tell you what's difference between the books's ending and the show'd ending:

      Show: shity ending
      Books: no ending at all

          I genuinely think the only reason he's saying this is because of the backlash from the shows ending, he told the writers the true ending years ago & they were to head to it from there

            Why would we want the books to be the same now we know the ending?

              Especially when it was so poorly laid out that we would be allergic to it after that even if it were well written. D n D ruined the show and the ending.

            I was ok with the ending... I was not ok on how HBO did it. The last episode reminded me of the the unaired episode with different actors.

                    Drogon was the lightbringer and the darkness was the throne. Danny definitely dies in books also lol

                          The difference is that the show has an ending whereas there’s no ending in sight for the books.

                            Such ferocious hate directed towards season 8. I’ve now read over 20 comments saying that they never liked GoT anyway, or that it’s now all pointless and tainted. Yes. Forget the dozens and dozens of hours of top notch television you enjoyed because you didn’t like the ending. It’s all tainted. Ruined forever. Entitlement in full force.

                              to forget the shitshow that is called season 8

                                      I think most of us would be like, the TV is canon and so does the book. But after Season 8, I guess the books suddenly became the ONLY canon.

                                        The books are canon, the TV series is fan fiction.

                                            The difference in endings will be that the show will have one.

                                                  So the true ending of the series is yet to be release and it's by maybe Dany is going to be resurrect...

                                                          I’m sure whatever George does will be well thought out and the characters will be well developed in the direction they are taken. Unlike the show

                                                            So the goal right now is distancing yourself from the season 8 garbage and start marketing for the new book.
