    Potentially. Some people don't end up liking the series. I got a friend to try it and he hated it. :(

    Then again, all of the other ten or so people who I've forced ASoIaF upon have enjoyed it immensely.

    That's true. Out of the dozen or so I've recommended ASoIaF to, I know two that don't like it. Met is one of those, and he doesn't really count. :)

    as far as I remember GRRM has got sick of the hatemail he gets when he does not release on an estimated date so he is not giving out any more till he is completly done with Dance.

    ITs a sorry state that some fans (and I use the term loosly here) see fit to take such disrespectful and insulting actoins

    Hmmm, I have to say that it's quite a bizzare thing to do, this hate mail thing.

    It isn't exactly going to inspire the man to continue is it.
    I would say that it is far more likely to result in the completely opposite effect ,and make him wash his hands of it entirely.

    Oh well, here's to patience.

    I agree but some people have no manners nor patience (and sadly no brains either)
