longlivestark Posted August 19, 2011 Share Posted August 19, 2011 ETA: I'm don't know if can write without using spoiler tags here...can i? I'll edit the post if spoiler tags are not needed :)Anyway, i've just realized a thing that bugged me for a while. It's about POV for winds. 2 months before ADWD's release, we knew the names of all the POVs (with the exception of Connington, but we also knew he only had two chapters) .. now, if Jon is not dead and he's going to be a POV again (although i think the title of his chapters will change, at least for a while), how can Martin think he's going to keep it a secret? I'll explain: even if he doesn't tell us, Jon is a character who has always at least 5 chapters. As soon as he'll be done with Winds (i'm hoping for 2/3 years, wishful thinking) he's probably going to tell us which characters are POV, and we will probably be able to guess the rest. Something like "there are 10 pov characters you know about, plus two more i'm not telling you who have 9 chapters between them" is still not enough (we know a lesser, random POV will never are more than 2-3 chapters)So, i'm guessing that, if jon will be back, either won't be a POV or we'll know about it before the book comes out.. What do you think?Does he ever tell us the exact number of chapters before release? He told us WHO was a POV character in the book, and he told us which characters got the most chapters (Jon, Dany, and Tyrion), but he never told us how many chapters each character gets, did he?
