posts on 4/30/2006 4:18:24 PM I am back, finals are over weeeeeeee. no strees. I liked the 2, 3and 5 books
posts on 4/25/2006 9:51:48 PM +sighs in laughter+ i love you loki. and i give you credit--you got farther than i did. i don't know whether i could get to book 5. i hear so many good things and so many bad things about robert jordan, i don't know if i'd have the patience to stumble through it. excellent style and all, but WHAT can 10+ books possible hold ALL ON THE SAME (mostly) CHARACTERS? it's like a lord of the rings nightmare...

posts on 4/25/2006 9:36:59 PM Good to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. About the book I mean. It's sad news about Jordan though.
posts on 4/25/2006 12:41:04 AM Yes, the middle of the series drags a bit, but his latest one in the series goes back to being really good. I really, really do hope he is able to do his last book. He has a rare disease that quite frankly is pretty serious. I'm hoping he pulls through okay.
posts on 4/25/2006 12:10:57 AM I read the prequel recently, that sent me back to Book 1 again, which means I had to reread them all again. Its been a marathon, but I just finished Book 10. There is a lot happening in this book, yes it is a bit wordy, but my hope as always is that Jordan is setting us up for the next book. I found it helpful to read them all again from the beginning, I don't feel quite so lost as the first time around. Is Book 11 out yet?
posts on 4/21/2006 8:43:30 PM That sounds so exciting. i have read only 8 of the books and i agree that a majority of them are a little slow. i cant wait to read the last one. i wonder, how many more until the series is finished, anybody know?
posts on 4/14/2006 2:57:19 PM little dramatic loki. he dose not actualy visit this sight this is a chat room like thing. Yes it is quite tedeus after book 6 if you like ploitics read them all. I guess you could read book 11 it picks up there if it is too painful. mat's wife shows up in 9(I think) maybe the epolog of 8. 6 through 9 kind of sworl together. and if you think that everything revols around rand wait till you get to the part where they think of each other(mat, rand, and perrin) and they can see what the other person is doing. Isn't there any thing you like in the books. sorry if I sound like a jake, finals 2 weeks, so tired
posts on 4/10/2006 5:16:33 PM Alright, I just read Book 5 of the Wheel of Time series. Feeling a little suspicious of a certain lack of action and a bit of worry over Mat Cauthon's apparent 'Best Friend' role (meaning his actions are dependent on Rand's) I went looking for reviews.

Good lord, is it really going to be that bad? I wanted to at least see Mat's wife, but could I even make it if I tried? Do I really want to even read a series when all have to look forward to is Book 10, the one where nothing happens?

Robert Jordan, I am not a happy camper here. You made me like your books and now apparently you are letting me down.

Yes, you can't write believable dialogue and your pacing is rotten. You can't hold back any bit of information once revealed. (Such as when Mat killed his evil Aiel girlfriend. He sits there and wonders about what he is going to do... AND THEN HE GOES AND TELLS RAND. Most pointless subplot EVER.)

But you know what Robert? You can write fluidly and as long as you had that, all the other stuff went right over my head. I didn't even notice it.

My eyes have been opened, Robert. I've taken a bite from the tree of Knowledge and the taste was bitter. Although entertaining. Some of those Amazon reviews were hilarious.
Roman posts on 3/21/2006 5:09:12 PM I realize Jordan is probably tiring of this series. But after this one perhaps a journey to seandar with Mat and Toun to reclaim the Crystal Throne would appropriate.
