The Wheel of Time book thread

This thread is for discussing Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. You may talk about characters, which book you like the most (or if you just love them all), Robert Jordan himself, or anything else book related. Also if you have any questions about the books feel free to ask. We wont make fun of you. I promise! Thanks to all of you Wheel readers who've been with him since the beginning or if you've just started picking the books up.


Just discuss the Wheel of Time

He starts to drag on from The Great Hunt onwards. Hell, he could have easily finished by now.

I hope this new author does the last book well though.

Me too it would be a huge disappointment to read all the other books just to have a horrible written ending, but i'm pretty sure it will turn out just fine.

I sort of just got drawn into them and couldn't get out. They're a great read.

As I write this, I have EVERY SINGLE ONE of those books less than a foot above my head. (Shelf, duh)

14 books in total I think. Two for the original book, then 2 - 11, and then the prequel.

Mate, if you like LOTR, you will love WOT. I personally prefer it to LOTR. It's more complex and the world Jordan created is so much richer in its history and customs.

I hated the first one. It was a bit of a LOTR rip-off, but he really came into his own in the second book, and they got really good again from book 10. I like seeing Rand pwn the Aes Sedai.

Seriously, I just want the White Tower to die.

i found it amazingly awesome up until Rand got that awesome uber sword. Then he put it back and walked away. Things went downhill very quickly from there in my opinion. Mostly due to Rand being an idiot and not just getting that uber powerful sa'angreal thing and owning everything. Also because Jordan seemed to spend far too much time talking about what the women were doing for it to be interesting for me. I want more rolling rings of fire and earth.

No, no, no, only the Black Ajah are cool. The rest suck. They're a bunch b*tchy, backstabbing, ignorant women obsessed with dresses.

Asha'man FTW!

Don't worry guys, I've read the 11 main books and the prequal and loved (most) of it

Crossroads of Twilight I nearly gave up on because it was so bad. Shame it was a necessary progression point.

It's nothing like LOTR, but if you like LOTR, you'll like WoT.

There's nothing hugely original about the themes or anything, but it is a fantastic story at a realistic pace, and do have some original plot ideas, particularly concerning the main character.

I agree but later on (can't remember which book) he uses the sword and it ends up being too much power for him and he ends up killing alot of his men.
