Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

Yeah well, I didn't have access to a public library, and that was the only one we had at home, I usually don't like starting in the middle of a series, but I'd run out of good books at that stage, I've got plenty now though Must get those other books aye~

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

I can never remember which book is which, I started them only recently and read the first 8 in a few months all at once. Which ever one starts (oh, don't look down if you don't want to be spoiled).

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

Yea that was a great part! One of the best thus far in the series. I'm expecting big things from book 11 considering absolutely nothing happened in the Crossroads of Twilight.

yes very true - contentious point this, but do you think Robert Jordan even knows where he's going now?
Publishing "A New Spring" recently made me wonder why he's publishing back story without even finishing the actual story first!

I suppose you might level the same accusation at GRRM for doing the same with the hedge knight, but at least that was a short story and not an entire novel, so didn't take much out of his time for writing the next in the series

The Hedge Knight was written primarily for Legends.. can't compare him to Jordan for that.

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

It seems adding prequel books, or additional books, is the popular thing to do for series. Or maybe it's just the profiting thing to do.

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

I was expecting to hate New Spring, but I really liked. The original was in a Legends compilation and the full length novel felt like I was getting to know old friends better.

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

Bit hazy myself now on exactly what happened where, its been a good few years since i last read many of them, but from memory id say The Shadow Rising was my personal favourite. Lots of reasons, I REALLY enjoyed the plot/character development of Perrin and we started to get more of an idea of how Mat would be important, plus how he finally had to start comming to terms with the fact that He WOULD be involved. Finally learning some of the history of groups such as the Tinkers etc. durring the experience that Mat and Rand share.

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

I remember The Shadow Rising being my favorite, though as I read WoT in the seventh grade I can no longer remember why or even what happend. As someone else has already said, its all just a blur at this point.

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

I just got finished rereading all ten books, I hate prequels, and I would have to say that the last book is my favorite because it is the most intriguing. Anyone have any thoughts on the city So Harbor and how Mat sees dead people also, pages 766 and 767 of Crossroads of Twilight? Too many questions to answer based on the last book.

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

I am only up to book 6 so far, but so far the Lord of Chaos and The Fires of Heaven is the books so far for me. I couldn't put down and couldn't stop reading Fires of Heave and with Lord of Chaos its been the same way.

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

For me it was the first book, the flight from their home, the unbleivable realization of what they were. I was totally captivated and I consider it one of the best stories I have ever read. They went from small town "hicks" to the most important people in the last few centuries in that book, it was an amazing ride.

The dragon reborn by far was thr greatest, and everything started going downhill after The Fires of Heaven.

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

I haven't read any of the others in an age, but New Spring was so much better than the second half of WoT. Basically because he had to fit an entire story into one book. He's a very good writer, but since his wife become his editor he's stopped writing with an aim, he just packs in more and more pointless detail and gets nowhere

So, New Spring. But from what I can remember of the series proper, Shadow Rising was the best...

Re: Best Wheel of Time novel so far?

For me it was definitely The Eye Of the World. I know it may sound corny but I've read all the books, with the exception of New Spring, twice and I still get chills when Jordan describes the first time Rand channels. He could have begun and ended the series with that book if you ask me.
