I know, it would be a bit crazy and v annoying for book readers. They may be alright for the next one - still 3 part 2, 4 and 5 to go with the telly, so if he's done in 3 years time it'll be fine. But then they'll need the next one in 4 years - is that really going to happen?!

Didn't he write one of the books in a short period of time ?
I know there has been huge gaps between some, but I thought I read somewhere there was only 3ish years between one of them. So there could be hope.
Hopefully the series will motivate him, saying that I would rather have a book up to the same standard as the others, than him rushing because he feels he has to.

It seems to have got a lot slower as he went on and the books became more intricate. The most recent one was by far the worst. Maybe he'll pull it together - I really hope so!

Have you read any of the sample chapters ?
I haven't yet, might give in to temptation soon though.

Oberyn Martell has been cast for next years series. He doesn't look at all how I imagined him, maybe he will look the part when he has got a widows peak.

Hmm, I always pictured Oberyn to be a bit smoother, if that makes sense. But then he is supposed to be in his 40s I think. He could work. I'll trust them, as the only casting out of every character I am not sure on is Ramsey Bolton, and that's some good going.

Yes, that makes perfect sense.
Like you say thought they have done a brilliant job so far.
I am sure once he is in Dornish dress he will look fantastic. I love the red viper, so really hope he does him justice.
