Jeffersonian WoT

Recommended Posts

Hello to all, 

 

I'm sure that many of you are aware of what is commonly referred to as the "Jeffersonian Bible" (I promise this relates to WoT and will not involve me trying to convert you). Thomas ol' boy wasn't fond of certain parts of the scriptures, so he just cut out the pages he didn't like and kept the stuff he did like on his shelf. 

I am a fantasy fan. But I find the prospect of reading 14 dense books too imposing a prospect to read WoT. I realize that I may be bordering on a request for blasphemy here, but is there a Jeffersonian WoT out there somewhere? A fan cut that takes out gratuitous description and dead end subplots? If so, I would be very interested.

    • I am currently rereading WOT for the first time since first reading it. I was just reading the following quote from chapter 12.   “You must handle it,” Moiraine said in answer to something unheard from Lan. “He will remember too much as it is, and no help for it. If I stand out in his thoughts. . . .”   I am trying to figure out what this might be referring to and can't remember what it might be. If somebody could point out what this is meant to reference I would appreciate it. 
    • skin color is irrelevant in wot and I could care less how they cast it.  If they go by the books there will be many races and cultures and main characters like Tuon will be black.  All that is great, no problem.  Just hope they keep the modern political narratives out of this.  I want it to be more like game of thrones where they can do surprising things without offending someone.  If they have to be politically correct then it will ruin the tv show.  Many of the characters have do offensive things and have offensive thoughts so hopefully they can let that shine through.   One of the key traits of the wheel of time was all the different perspectives and all the communication barriers that would crop up between different groups of people.  hopefully they can let all that shine and they will need a very diverse cast to make it happen. 
    • In this thread: some people who are gonna lose their shit when non white actors get cast despite most characters not having an explicitly established skin colour and Randland being a far future setting where skin colour is entirely irrelevant.
