  1. A few of you guys put the same book in the list twice, lol. My personal list is (and I'm pulling this from memory.. haven't read the full series in a while): 1. The Dragon Reborn 2. Lord of Chaos 3. Eye of the World 4. The Shadow Rising 5. The Great Hunt 6. The Fires of Heaven 7. Knife of Dreams 8. Towers of Midnight 9. The Gathering Storm 10. Crown of Swords 11. A Memory of Light 12. Winter's Heart 13. Path of Daggers 14. Crossroads of Twilight Books 7-10 were really weak in my opinion. They could've easily been condensed into one book with all the repetiton and lack of plot movement. I'd be really surprised if anyone votes for the tenth book (seriously)... I already see that it's at the bottom of most people's lists. If you removed it from the series completely.. I don't think much anything would change.
  2. Thanks for the link. I found it interesting for his reasoning behind making the Last Battle chapter so long, and it's good to know that the majority of the end of the book was Robert Jordan's work, as I'm sure most of us suspected or had some idea about.
  3. Despite the fact that many have complained about this, I really enjoyed Androl's arc. It only makes sense though because Androl was BS's own creation and he had more liberty with him than other characters.
  4. I was much more satisfied with Mat's character in this book than the previous ones. He fit more into character than before. I think many of us expected him to be a great general in the Last Battle, and while some elements were missing from his character, his role was much better written out than I expected, after reading our last encounters with him in the previous books.
  5. The Seanchan situation can be "explained away" with Tuon speaking to Hawkwing and us assuming that she listened to whatever he said because her entire nation's purpose was to follow him. However, that's a bit of a cop-out, and I was a bit disappointed that we didn't see the actual encounter.
  6. Demandred was mentioned in a private interview with the DO at SG in LOC. He was told to be use balefire in the DO's service. It says there that he was taking a gamble that could have huge chances for success. In turn, the DO hinted that he might be made Nae'blis. At the end of that book Demandred has another appearance where it seems he has succeeded at the task given to him. Only Moridin knew what Demandred was up to as was clear from other POVs of the other forsaken. The name Bao and Wyld don't appear in any of the earlier books. This is well-known, but Brandon Sanderson mentioned numerous times that Demandred's other character was mentioned in the other books and we were all trying very hard to find it. Now that we finally know who his alternate ego was, I'm surprised no one went to find the reference point. It was one of the more popular theory discussions.
  7. The saddest moment was when the book ended. ;) But seriously, I think I found Egwene's death to be the saddest. There was another moment, but it's escaping me at this time.
  8. There's a lot that can be said.. but all I'll mention for now is my disappointment in Padan Fain. His character was extensively built up throughout the series and then he ended up just turning into some mist and being killed... his entire scenes in the book didn't even add up to more than five pages. Some people mention that he wasn't really mentioned that often before this.. but that was the point.. he was the type of character you would forget about and then he would do something evil and you'd be shocked. In fact, I was convinced up until the last moments that we were purposefully made to forget about him and he would surprise us at the end with something crazy... but yeah, that seems to be my opinion and the majority of people's opinions, but I can't say what RJ had actually hoped for him.
  9. I just really wish we saw the encounter between Hawking and Tuon, but I feel like this was very intentionally left open to us.
  10. So, not sure if this was asked anywhere, but I know most of us were searching really hard for hints of when Demandred's alias was mentioned in earlier books as hinted by BS.. now that we finally know who his alias was (Bao the Wyld), where was he mentioned in the previous books? I know it was probably just in passing, but was it really mentioned or was this information incorrect?
  11. I don't really like Rand in this book. I know he's changed after TGS, but he just seemed really out of character. Not the person I've come to know and love at all.
  12. I am almost 100 percent sure that RJ said Taim = Taim.
  13. Traitors die the ultimate death. I have just always to understand that to mean that once the traitor dies, the Dark One erases the traitor's thread permanently from the Pattern. It was said that the Dark One was unable to transmigrate him... not that he chose to have him un-transmigratable (yes, I just made that word up).
  14. If they're channelers, they're not very good ones, considering they used a knife to kill that guy.. Then again, it might not be a coincidence that they kept mentioning channelers in the Shadow army the entire time throughout the book, but we never found out who they were.
