That was an incredible first chapter. I really really liked it. Not often I get eyewet that early. ;-) Though the reason of course is how well the chapter ties with the ending of the last book. One of the best endings so far in this series in my view.

Wow, great first chapter. The change from the gloom of The Gathering Storm to what is in this chapter is a sight to see. I gather it won't last though....

brilliant! I hope there will be more than just the glimpse of Rand that Jason alluded to in his review, this chapter was as Jimmy said, "Bad Ass"

Moody in only the last 4?! lol try since at least LoC or even earlier lol. Regardless, I agree, MOAR RAND! although I don't think we'll see him too, too much in this one unfortunately. Hopefully enough to see some arc progression though.

Wonderful! I got goosebumps when I realized from whom we were getting a point of view. Can't wait for November 2nd!

Oh my god! This was amazing! I logged in to write how I have had goosebumps when I figured out who this Almen Bunt is. I did not expect that I will find two EXACTLY identical comments already posted (Kacebelle, heavytabbs). :)

 

Wow, Robert Jordan was a master in knowing what would excite the reader to the point of goosebumps (I don’t know if Sanderson wrote the chapter, but it certainly looks like it was envisioned by RJ)! I mean, to have this irrelevant character reappear after gazillion pages of the story have been written is just amazing! I bet that RJ had had this chapter in mind as he was writing the first book. I bet that he was giggling as he was thinking about readers’ reaction after seeing it. What a remarkable storyteller!

 

So, who do you think Rand is going to meet? And what is the thing that ‘she’ would not be pleased to hear?

 

Cheers to all!

At the end of TGS, Rand remembers a lot of past life stuff, and not just from LTT's life either. This leads me to think Rand knows A LOT of stuff which was previously unknown to everyone. Or, at least, he is able to put things together. For example, he probably remembers all the details about what went wrong the last time he tried to seal in the Dark One and we have to presume he has figured out, or is close to figuring out what he needs to do. So my guess is he is going to talk to Egwene because he needs female Aes Sedai help. What he needs them to do is probably the thing she isn't going to like. Anyway, that's my guess and it is probably wrong, but I hope we find out in November! What an awesome chapter! I was hoping Rand would become a light bender and my hope has been realized.

I preordered the book :biggrin:

 

I am one month already in this panic mode. After I read this chapter, I have become like Cartman while waiting for Nintendo Vii :)

 

I really liked the part when Rand brings light and the apples grow back again. The pattern around Rand corrects itself.

Great way to begin right where the Gathering Storm left off. I cannot wait to read this book!

 

The whole aspect with the apples actually reminds me of Swan Song by Robert McCammon. If you've ever read it, you'll hopefully remember the scene. If not, it's also an important point in the story where the main character (also fairly messianic in nature) is involved in a similar act.

Awesome!! Mind Blowing :-@ Love that it reconnects with the first book and the character of Bunt. I remember him being mentioned by Gawyn in book three or so and I think it's brilliant to see him back again, to show how Rand has touched the ordinary man. What goes around comes around and Rand is finally thanking him for his help. Plus, I always thought it strange how Rand set out in Bk one to go to Tar Valon and never got there and now he is finally going to the centre of everything. COming from Dragonmount just makes it more Epic
