Finished AMOL not too long ago, after much trepidation about reading it.
Completely agree with the sentiment about not re-reading the books written by BS. Fair play to him, its an extremely tough situation to be in, and fans demended and ending, so the good thing there is closure I guess. But I did not enjoy any element to his storytelling.
I found some of his character development cartoonish, to the point major characters almost became caricatures of themselves, or their outlooks were changed so that they appeared foreign to what we had grown up reading. The WOT series is certainly no stranger to "padding" (indeed, I belive RJs later books were fleshed out excessively) but I found large plot "twists" in the last 3 books to be largely irrelevent.
Im sure Sanderson has some talent as an author (who has had some success with various series written pre WOT novels) but I now have no inclination to read any of them. As I said, it was a tough gig, and extremely difficult to step into someone elses imagination into a world they completely created and had their own, unrevealed stories about/ endings/ plot twists, especially when its a much loved series. I just didnt enjoy it though.
