always liked Thom Merrilin, Matrim Cauthon, Loial, the Aiel, the Seanchan, the Forsaken, the Myrddraal and the Ways...

looking forward to finishing the entire fucking thing before Winds of Winter comes out and Game of Thones gets cancelled...

"Tom Doherty enjoyed The Eye of the World so much that he declared it would be the biggest fantasy series since Tolkien[citation needed] , "

"The Wheel of Time is notable for its length, its detailed imaginary world, its well-developed magic system,"

FX has never really fucked up a show I can remember. not a walking dead fan, but my mom loves justified...

I'd give this shit a chance. I trust anyone who flagrantly rides a wave with aplomb

Enjoyed the first 5-6 books then they started to suck. Then I realized they all sucked from the beginning.

No character development at all
Rand Al Thor is the absolute clichee of the troubled fantasy protagonist
All characters are basically caricatures
I feel like Robert Jordan let too much of his Christian beliefs seep into the books
there's so much more

been riding high on how shit plays out for weeks now.

Brandon Sanderson, seriously, motherfucker breathed new life into the series.

smallest of small gripes, how Davram Bashere was treated and how little Thom factored into the finale...

AND

how Sanderson couldn't quite find a proper voice when it came to Aviendha.
