A little frenchie...maybe not the only one??

Recommended Posts

ok, I'm a big fan of the WOT, I'm 25, student and a frenchie.

 

I just want to talk about this books with some (maybe one day friends) peoples. Let me tell you that you have the dark one's own luck, cause you can read this books in your own language. The problem is that in France the translater is almost as fast as....Uh, I don't know but the books are ten years late. the crown of swords is not available in French. So, I try to read them in English, I'm working my english... I don't understand everything but the main.

 

If you want to mail me private or not, I'll be pleased to answer, I have a little time this year. I'm reading crossroads of twilight so don't tell me what happens next. If you have some questions on my beautiful country(lol) it is the same!

 

nice site.

Bienvenue Valyon! I think there are one ot two french members... and maybe french speaking canadians...

 

Of course you still have another book to look forward to. I envy you!

 

There are one or two polls on the book discussion boards, and I don't think anything gets spoiled for you if you vote in them. But maybe you should stay away from reading the posts until you have finished CoT and maybe even Knife of Dreams.

 

Having said that, you could start a new thread if there is something you want to talk about.... and add the following to the header: No CoT and KoD spoilers please.

 

The rest of the board is pretty much WoT free... so go for it!!

thanks egwene, it's nice to talk with the new members...one or two messages and we feel like parts of the sites.

 

since I arrived I'm reading the news and it is very nice. I will remember your advice when I open a new topic, cool to know this!

 

ciao

quand j'ai vu "frenchie," j'ai pense immediatement que c'etait un autre quebecois. ah bon. just pour toi, d'abord: chus de quebec, esti! un cris de tete carre, en plus!

 

heh heh. i speak french (not much choice here), but there aren't any accents on the forum! tabernacle!

 

ok, i was really just showing off. je m'excuse profondement de mon francais casse!

 

that being said, ever heard of the "chevaliers d'emeraude"? by anne robillard, i think. my wife's mom is best friends with the author. just throwing it out there. i haven't read any of them, but my wife's absolutely hooked, you may find them interesting. they sound a bit less sophisticated to me, but they might be a good read, and in french, with no translational delays.

It is ok corki. I found the section where to post to be one raw recruit of the band(it was really difficult to find, the next time, I'll search, and after ask).

Testify! Yeah, that movie is freaking sweet. I guess I should not be so proud of such a dubious role model, but hey. He's the man, for his time and place. He fits right in there.

 

Le Duc will be fine. Another alter ego of mine has been the duke, before he got retired. You know Blind Melon?

Whenever I see Le Duc, all I can think of is "Le Duc du Montagne Noir", an evil man in a cartoon series when I studied french!

 

And Valyon, an email is sitting in your inbox from me (DM Band of the Red Hand ORG or something similar) explaining more about the Band! If you have any questions, just email or PM me! I hope we shall make you feel welcome!

they're a band. they did a song called "the duke" that i've always thought was really awesome, and very representative of me. certain parts of me, anyway. they are awesome. well, were; singer's been dead for years now.
