  1. I am excited for the finish, but sad as well. I think while we all want to read it, we also want to be in better shape than the previous two, with errors all over the shop. So if it's November 2012 so be it. It will be worth the wait.
  2. I think it's really unfair if Harriet does delay the ebook release date. Many of the fans are unable to hold heavy, and they certainly are heavy, hardbacks. By refusing to release it the same day, she is doing two things - alienating a section of the fans, and secondly and this is the biggest one encouraging piracy. Sadly most books are on the net as copies within days. With this being the last one, and as it seems not allowing it to be released the same day, some will turn to illegal copies to read it. Plus is it really fair to not allow fans to see how it all wraps up, after all if we are wa
  3. She's been over that for about 8 books. You didn't read those, apparently. Epic fail
  4. When did BS adjust it to November? I follow him on Twitter and haven't seen anything to suggest he's saying November 2012.
  5. My personal hate list is rather long, but top of my list and has been since book one is.... drum roll Nynaeve - arrogant, stubborn, arrogant, believes she and all women are superior to all men, she really has no idea to be honest. The fact she still holds onto the fact it is all Moiraine's fault shows really how mind-numbingly stupid she is. The others are.. Cadusane - Ugh..another stupid, stupid woman she doesn't like to be gentle with her tactics to get people to do something she likes to run them over like a ten-ton truck, or is this world a fully laden cart. Galad - simple.
  6. I've read them through twice all the way. But, the first four I've read about six times. I plan a complete reread at the end of the year, or later depending on release date for aMoL. I have the first 11 in paperback, and all 13 plus NS on my Kindle. I suppose after aMoL is released I'll do a reread maybe once every 18 mths or two years. I don't think I'll stop reading them due to no new material.
  7. 1. tEotW 2. tSR 3. FoH 4. LoC 5. tDR 6. tGH 7. tGS 8. KoD 9. WH 10. ToM 11. aCoS 12. tPoD 13. CoT For me, personally, tEoTW stands out. Yes it's not as in depth as some of the others. But the breakneck pace of it grabs you and pulls you into the world and the characters. You start to glimpse tiny glimmers of their future. I used to read it while walking to work, and often got told by people "oh, I saw you this morning with your head in a book"
  8. But didn't RJ say that not all plot lines would be resolved? Surely this means that those ones will be left as they are, hanging. We will get the final one book, but I suspect it will be possibly close tSR in terms of words, which if it is that will allow more freedom of closing off plot lines and finishing it in a just and proper manner. While I think a lot would like a second part to aMoL so it is tied up neatly and more plot linbes get reolved without the feeling of being rushed and done for the sake of it, I also think you'd get another section who would be annoyed that once again they
  9. But would forkroot work on the True Power? After all Rand managed to break the bracelets that stopped him touching saidin by touching the True Power.
  10. But, we don't want the errors that were in ToM. The Kindle version was riddled with errors, to the point Little Brown had to revise it and send it out again. So if the editing takes long to correct I am not going to complain, as long as Harriet releases the hard back and e-book on the SAME day. Not 3 months later, that would we terribly unfair and smack in the face to the fans.
  11. The other question is, will they release the e-book version the same day. Or will we have the farce like we did for ToM? I really hope it's released the same day, to do otherwise would be completely unfair to those who are unable to hold heavy hardbacks.
  12. I am now reading the spoilers as I have just finished ToM today. So a speculation thread for aMoL would be very interesting.
  13. I would hope that after the huge and rather vocal backlash with ToM e-book that aMoL will be on the same day. Harriet certainly heard fairly quickly that the fans were, to say the least very annoyed that it was supposed to be released on the same day as the paperback.
  14. I've read it between 3 and 5 times. but the first 4 are around six or seven times. I intend after reading ToM on Monday, to start a complete reread in about November or December hoping to finish ToM around when aMoL is published. But that is hoping. I've done a reread for ToM, I finished tGS around the early part of this month.
  15. That is one neat tattoo pminze. It incorporates so much of the WoT series. I am suitably jealous. If only I wasn't such a coward for pain, I'd get one done.
  16. I saw the picture a few days ago on Twitter. I am *cough* 45 and I want a plushie Grolm!!
  17. The art team has done the community proud with the artists they have picked. All of them are stunning pieces and are well worth the price of the e-book alone. I just hope that my version has this piece on the cover.
  18. I am very tempted to get the wheel & snake version done. The only real issue, and it's a biggie. I have a low pain tolerance and hate needles I do think though that some of them look really nice, I did a Google search for WoT tattoos and saw one of woman who had two dice and it's time to toss the dice - except written in old tongue at the base of her neck, it looked really neat. I do have a cross-stitch version of the WoT symbol hanging on my wall near the books that my girlfriend made for me.
  19. Oh, where to start. I despise Nynaeve - she believes she is superior in any and everyway to other chanellers. She blames, or did, blame Moraine for everything, because she was too arrogant, and stupid to realize that the Two Rivers would have ceased to exist if they hadn't been taken away. The fact it took her too long to be honest to come realize this. Egwene - Way too arrogant for someone of such a young age. How she managed to manipulate and out think Aes Sedai who have been in the Tower for many decades, when she has come from a backwater village is quite frankly staggering. But, she
  20. I'll be sad when the last book is published, but also relieved. Because we'll finally know the ending, and when we wish to to do a reread we won't be hanging on for the next one in the series we can read through from tEotW through aMoL. To say this series means a lot to us would be an under statement I think, for a lot of us this is a series we have grown up with, it has taken us to highs and lows in the characters lives and adventures. We have hit massive lows with the passing of Robert, and gained highs again as the series got taken up by Brandon so we'd know how it all concludes. We all
  21. Very rude, very uncalled. Do you think personal attacks are fair? The fact the series is being finished is something we should all be incredibly grateful for. I think to be honest you owe an apology to the forum, and Brandon for your well out of order attacks. If you don't like the way it's being written say so, but do it fairly. Say what is wrong, but do it with tact. I am about 60% of the way through tGS and so far I have enjoyed it, sure a couple of things are touch off, but nothing so drastic as you are painting.
  22. Funny it is not yet listed on Amazon. That's weird as it was priced and a date less than a week ago. There is a price and release date for the UK. I wonder what Tor are playing at, but if you look on the Tor forum there is an official release from them about ToM.
  23. It can't have been an easy mantle to take up. This is a world very rich in it's history, lands, peoples and mythology. Brandon has said he's a fan and has read them all, but it makes for a difficult job to take up the baton and run to the finishing line with. The fans for the most part are beyond grateful that the series is being finished. Yes some can be picky and will pull at a thread just to prove a point that they know better (or think they do) than the author. But the fact is we ALL love the books, the characters we have grown up with and we are now seeing the battle lines in Tarmon Gai'd
  24. That makes it awkward for me. Do I wait a few months extra for a new edit of the e-book or get it on January 31st. Just how bad is it? If it's too bad to read I'll wait I think.
  25. My personal favourite (I'm English this how we spell it) is tEotW. It starts us all of the journey. From the very start you transported to LTT and the Dragon. Then it starts soft and quiet with the road, and we find Rand, and the epic tale begins. The pace is fast and furious as more characters are drawn in and we start to see story arcs develop. We also start to see some of the rich, and dark history of the Dragon and the Dark One. This for me hands down wins the best of the series, but that may change in the next few weeks as I have tGS (which I am currently reading) and ToM (due to be down
