At the risk of a one way ticket to neg city I don't actually care much any more. I am in the minority though.
I actually liked the whole series a lot more this time round. The first time I read it through in a frenzy, just ploughing forward, waiting for something good to happen (it didn't). This time I took my time and enjoyed the characters I hurried over previously a lot more. Figuring out all the little nuances and background plots is really quite satisfying. Keeping track of who is pulling which strings is a full time job in itself. Also having done nothing but watch and read this since the series started (how many months is that?) it's really weird trying to read anything else right now.
Same. I seriously think he has lost his way. I'll read the next one, that's for sure, but I'm not gonna be fiending for it like I was with Dance.
I waited out the last six years, and just when I gave up all hope he announced the new one. Coupled with TV execs looking over his shoulder I have a little faith in him this time round.
The feeling will fade in time as the years go by and Gurm taunts you by doing seemingly anything other than finishing the bloody book he is supposed to be writing.
