  1. Looking forward to the TV series, though if it turns out to be a disappointment, at least we have TWOT books to read. Hoping everyone has a happy holiday season throughout this year.
  2. So far everything looks great for the TV adaptation. I want to share my thoughts specifically on A Memory Of Light, the last book in the series. I think this book and A Crown of Swords will be the tricky TV adaptations because there is some suspense and mysteries in these two books. First off I love this series and have read it numerous times including the world of robert jordans the wheel of time, the companion, new spring: the novel, and the two short stories: river of souls, and the fire within the ways. I loved the gathering storm and towers of midnight,
  3. First off as I said in previous comment keeping expectations low for TV series. Adaptations from books to movies or vice versa are always a little different than everyone expects. From what I read of the news topic almost everything looks ok. However I would NOT recommend keeping some characters out of first season. Namely Elayne, Galad, and Gawyn etc. It might be a good idea to at least introduce them in the first season, just not give them a whole lot of screen time. The other thing is the statement about TWOT not being about good and evil, but about balance vs. inbal
  4. Excited to hear this news about TV series, though am keeping expectations low. Like a lot of people have said, Rand is the central character of the series and I would like to see a lot of the series focused on him, Mat, and Perrin. As far as I can tell, everything else looks ok. Will still probably have to wait another 2-3 years before the TV series premeirs on TV. Again looking forward to watching when it comes out. Hoping everyone has a reasonably cool summer.
  5. Very excited to hear this news. Ever since I first read TEOTW the wheel of time series has been almost like my bible, and the best thing about the series is it has good replay value for me. I can keep rereading the series over and over again and still enjoy it every time. Have three questions. 1. Any word on when TEOTW will be available to watch on amazon video. 2. Is related to first question. How much progress has been made in adapting first book to tv, amzon video etc. 3. I am not sure but I am assuming based on this article that TWOT TV series will be made by and premier on ama
  6. A great read. I wont say anything about the story for anyone who has not read it yet. But I will say I thought it was pretty good. I also enjoyed River of Souls, though it was pretty short. A Fire within the Ways makes me wish a new story set within TWOT would be put out in a book. I know Harriets against this but it sure is nice to dream. Currently reading TPOD in TWOT. Concerning AMOL its a bummer that Rand apparently got burned out from the male half of the source. That is a sad ending for that book. All in all loved AMOL, though I feel that there should have been a glossary in
  7. Hello everyone and happy holidays in advance to everyone. Found another typo error in book 6 Lord of Chaos. This is another publishing error by tor. In this book LOC it says about the author is on page 1012. There is not even about the author unless you count the photo, but the author photo is on page 1013. Still enjoy TWOT series and may consider getting TWOT ebooks, although tor should fix this minor mistake sometime in the future. Am looking forward to TV series and Unfettered 3. Merry Christmas and happy 2019 to everyone.
  8. Good to hear this news and will keep open mind about TV series, though I know it will be a while until we see the TV show. On book TSR right now. Love the series though I got to give positive complaint to TOR. The current paperback edition etc. that I own has page number typo error about the author. About the author RJ is printed to start on page 1006. It really starts on page 1007. For crying out loud whoever does the publishing get page numbers right! Also in hardcover TSR in glossary about artur hawkwing, the text is incomplete and fades to white, so you cannot read
  9. Good to hear this news and looking forward to reading the book. It would be even better though if some more insight about AMOL ending was explained. TWOT companion says Rand lost the ability to channel. I guess he was either severed or burned out from saidin. That would be cool if more details were revealed. It has also been quite a while since we heard any news about TWOT TV series. Right now I am taking a break from TWOT book series since I have read it so many times, but I still love the series. Wishing everyone the best, and a hopefully good year of 2019.
  10. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head that I dont understand for AMOL is this. In TWOT companion for the entry about Rand it says near the end that he could no longer channel saidin almost at the end of AMOL. Also in AMOL the book itself, almost at the end it basically says that he willed the flame to light his pipe. The thing I dont get is how come Rand can no longer channel saidin? I dont recall either one of the above mentioned books telling if he got gentled or severed. Yes, I know he switched bodies with Moridin, though as far as I know Moridin could
  11. GRRM series is entertaining though unrealistic. I can identify more with TWOT than ASOIAF. I am definitely looking forward to TWOT TV series.
  12. It is good to hear this news and looking forward to when the TV series does premier. Even though its a long ways off in terms of timing, I think it will be done right. There are a number of other ways for Harriet and tor to expand this series. As far as I know the new editions of TWOT series-TEOTW e.g. with Rand hanging on to the mast-those books with the new dust jackets are only in trade paperback. I may be wrong but I have not seen those covers in mass market or hardcover. Maybe if they republished these books kind of like what bantam did for ASOIAF, I bet that would make a lot of money
  13. Thanks for filling us in about the price for this new book. Its there for anybody who wants it, and not nearly as expensive as I thought it would be. I probably still won't get it, since I like the original books with the dust jacket art done by Darryl K. Sweet. Except for AMOL and later TWOT books. As for the trade paperbacks, I forgot to add this to the first comment, but what I meant is that I would like to see trade paperbacks for books 4-14 released in original covers and art done by D.K.S. Books 1-3 are already out in trade, though it is hard to find TDR for this edition. I own the first
  14. I wonder how much they are gonna charge for this? A 100 dollars or more? This is something I can do without. One thing I might pay money for is if TOR released TWOT books 4-14 in trade paperback. I am talking about those big paperbacks almost the size of hardcovers like for books 1-3. I would not mind hearing some news about TWOT tv series adaptation.
