  1. I felt it was out of character, but I didn't feel it was THAT bad. It felt more out-of -character for Rand then for Mat but it was far from the cringe-worthy moments of Mat in tGS. His writing of Mat has improved. I give him credit for that.
  2. lol A little harsh, but no, it didn't make much sense to me.
  3. That's only a double negative, used in everyday speech. I don't think it was intentional, hehehe. Upon first reading I didn't get your point, although I think I noticed it at the time. Androl had him bound with flows of air at the time, so he couldn't hear. Very good point! "An Aes Sedai never lies, but the truth she speaks, may not be the truth you think you hear."!
  4. but how?...walk me through her reasoning. It would have to be convincing enough for her to (on a snap judgement) suspect Graendal over Moghedien. "The fan base" was far from unanimous in believing her alive.
  5. Chapter 2, p.100(TOR) (credit to whomever noticed this during the audiobook release and posted it on twitter - Terez I think?) "Where does he live?" "Back in Kandor." (Pevara says) which seems to be a lie because he's dead, he doesn't "live" anywhere.
  6. If it was they didn't correct: Chapter 2, p.100(TOR) "Where does he live?" "Back in Kandor." (Pevara says) which seems to be a lie because he's dead.
  7. As I said in this post, http://www.dragonmount.com/forums/topic/78008-prologue-through-to-the-end-of-chapter-25/?p=2735902 people who should think Graendal is dead, suspect her of things Cadsuane says: Chapter 35, p. 599 (TOR) "Is would suspect it is Graendal". Cadsuane was told of her "bale-death" by Nynaeve right after it occurred. She shouldn't suspect Graendal of anything (or am I missing something?).
  8. Ya, Androl was pretty great. Why bring your enemy to the volcano, when you can bring the volcano to your enemy?!
  9. Another thing (I think it may be an error but I want others to confirm or deny it before posting in the Typo/Error thread): Chapter 22 p.412(TOR) Perrin says: "That was Graendal, wasn't it?", "Or was it Moghedien" Does this make any sense as a guess? Assuming no Field of Merrilor offscreen discussion about who is alive and who is dead among the Forsaken, Perrin could have guessed like that. He could also have guessed Sermirhage or Mesaana. His two guesses (from a reader's POV) imply that there was a talk. If so, shouldn't he have only guessed Moghedien because everyone thinks Graendal is Bale-dead? Similar question with respect to: Chapter 23 p.428(TOR) Aviendha's internal monologue (...that certainly hadn't been Moghedien, and it didn't match the description of Graendal...) If there had been full communication at the Field of Merrilor(or between Wise Ones and Aviendha) she should have guessed Moghedien or possibly Lanfear(because she knows Moraine made it back from finn-land, so why not Lanfear?). The non-communication permutations seem more complex with Aviendha(because it could involve not talking to the Wise Ones about Graendal being killed but talking about Mesaana being brain-dead). In any case, thinking the attacker might be Graendal seems clearly odd to me. Thoughts?
  10. Chapter22 p.414(TOR) Is anybody else as cynical as me (I know a couple of you out there are worse than me) and feel Lanfear's "time distortions" talk(not just in TAR but in the real world) are an excuse to allow Brandon literary flexibility? "Well, the timeline doesn't make sense? F'it! The pattern is unravelling!"
  11. The only previous reference I can think of is the prologue of Lord of Chaos. We are told they are neither alive nor dead.
  12. lol, hadn't thought of that. Imagine Moridin goes up to Rand and says "no, I am your father!"
  13. That segment just seemed too much like the "evil Men from the East" showing up to fight alongside orcs in the LOTR. I couldn't imagine a whole people being Darkfriends, Surely Demandred must have been behind this...or (Moghedien?) I'll read on and see!
  14. ...except Callandor! That was a surprise for me given this quote.
  15. Chapter 17 p.335 (TOR) "...but he could just be a beggar or other fool looking for excitement." Is this proper English? Should that word be "another"? EDIT: Chapter 17 p.342(TOR) "I would have the all of the women..." I 99% sure that that is not proper English. EDIT 2: Chapter 18 p.345(TOR) "The thing turned, too slow,..." too slowly?
