http://www.salon.com/2015/04/09/%E2%80%9Cgame_of_thrones%E2%80%9D_hbo_throws_out_george_r_r_martins_books_and_saves_the_show/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=socialflow

ok, so i'm not arguing whether hbo has the right to do this, but as a writer- it seems totally wrong. i understand making tweaks to adapt it to tv, but they're now taking his creation and manipulating it in ways he never wanted.

it strikes me as very disloyal. he gave them this awesome story and they've decided they can do a better job?

I can't have an opinion on this particular one at this point, as I've neither read the books nor watched the show.  But I'm pretty sure this happens all the time.  I mean, look at the movies that start out as books -- they are quite often not the same story at all.
