It looks like George R.R. Martin's plans to resurrect Jon Snow will work out completely different in his book, and he wasn't happy with the way theGame of Thrones showrunners handled it. While there are some similarities between the storylines, the details differ majorly between book and show now.

Caution: there are spoilers in this article. You've been warned if you decide to read on without being caught up withGame of Thronesor the books.

Martin has mostly approved of the book changes for the show's adaptation of Game of Thrones.

If he didn't approve in the past, they would all usually work together to find a way to make changes to suit all. This doesn't seem to have been the case with the season 6 plot to resurrect Jon Snow.

How was Jon Snow resurrected in 'Game of Thrones' season 6?

Game of Thronesseason 5 left viewers wondering what would happen to Jon. It was the same way the books have left fans. Within a couple of episodes, Jon Snow was resurrected at the hands of Melisandre. It was a theory that many fans had, after she had returned to Castle Black after realizing she was wrong about Stannis being the one the Lord of Light had sent.

Jon was disorientated initially when he was brought back, but quickly decided that it was time to leave the Night's Watch and take back Winterfell. It helped that Sansa had come to Castle Black for him and told him about what Ramsey had done. Now that he has Winterfell again, he can help to protect Westeros from the White Walkers in Game of Thronesseason 7.

Why isn't George R.R. Martin happy about the 'Game of Thrones' plot?

It's unclear whether Martin is really that disappointed in it. The showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff haven't confirmed anything. They've just said that the books and show differ so much now, and saying anything would mean giving a lot away from the readers.

It is possible that Martin isn't happy because it's the same storyline as his books. He may feel like he needs to rewrite that section of the book and change everything.

On the other hand, it may have been a method of resurrecting Jon that he didn't want to see used, or maybe that Jon isn't resurrected in the books at all.

The show has now completely overtaken the books.Game of Thrones Season 6 ended last month and work is starting on season 7. Martin is still yet to share a publication date forWinds of Winter.
