  1. Oh, I guess that explains why that ring I have lets me go into other people's dreams.
  2. The rising and falling towers (in the end there were only 6) preceding that dream were the Forsaken, right? That's what I interpreted them as. The one that fell but then rose highest among them all must be Moridin.
  3. I laughed at Elayne's Mesaana impersonation. I couldn't see HER disguised as Mesaana. lol ...too bad (to the point I've reached in ToM) that's the only "Mesaana" I've seen so far (unless the assassin counts).
  4. Mat was "meh" at first, but now I love reading his parts. In contrast, Perrin was pretty consistently meh. Well, actually in some of the earlier books, he was pretty good and enjoyable to read about, but he fell flat in later books and now his chapters are so tedious to get through. I've never hated Egwene. I liked her a bit in the first few books, and after a while she just got "old". I didn't care much for her parts then, but they were never bad in my opinion. Then, with KoD and TGS, I came to like her again. So far in Towers, she's been decent at best. Moiraine. I liked her up un
  5. If Lanfear does ever manage to hold a position of power (well, obviously she does since she's Chosen, but I'm talking about her own world here), I"m sure she'd be an awesome leader. Sarcasm, of course, but it would be interesting. Where would she go from there? If she gained power over the Dark One or the Creator, what would motivate her? That's her biggest character flaw, and I think it's well defined. She'd make a much better ruler than Semirhage at least.
  6. I would have expected that someone as sly as her would have had the sense to transport Rand to Shayul Ghul heeding Shaidar Haran's warning that she had only one chance left. She's known that Rand has killed other Forsaken and even though she should believe there's no way for him to be able to escape, she should have been too afraid to risk it given SH's warning. She should have transported Rand there, THEN come back and get her revenge on the Aes Sedai, for I'd imagine she was probably more enraged at them, especially Cadsuane. Then she would have been a pretty cool villain, although the story
  7. I agree. I know she's evil, that's obvious, but in her interactions with Rand, she felt human, playing the role of the seductress she is. I would much rather she be a grey character, with light and shadow, than just a black character through-and-through.
  8. I disliked Semirhage's death scene. She completely lost her cool and calculating demeanor and became an overconfident bimbo in that scene. For such a master tormentor, she became such a dumb and clumsy villain, and that made me disappointed in her. The ramifications of it were solid, but her actions themselves were ridiculous.
  9. I don't even know to what Ajah Cadsuane belong(ed) when in the White Tower. ???
  10. Ah, so the balefiring of Natrin's Barrow did accomplish something after all. I knew Aran'gar would die of some fault of Graendal's, but I assumed that it would happen later in Towers of Midnight, when in fact it actually happened in TGS, off-screen.
  11. That was great. I had been missing her since Fires of Heaven. Of all the Forsaken, she was the only one who would get close to Rand without trying to attack or harm him in any way, but rather trying to seduce him. I've always found her to be the best villain in the books and one of the best characters.
  12. Alright, so why do YOU like Lanfear so much? I've always enjoyed her character. Of the Forsaken, she was one who was always there in the beginning. She's also the most powerful of the females, very haughty, and very attractive. She's compelling, and the whole Lews Therin/Lanfear storyline was interesting to me. I would have liked to see where that went, and her defeat at the docks was awesome. She's always been my favorite Forsaken and one of my favorite characters.
  13. I have just read the penultimate-penultimate novel in the series, the first arc of the three-part "A Memory of Light", and like with most Wheel of Time books, I enjoyed it. Sanderson made some noticeable changes in writing style and characterization from Jordan, but the book was coherent and enjoyable, almost as much so as if Jordan himself wrote all of it instead of bits and pieces. Anyways, I noticed it featured some very awesome scenes and it makes Tarmon Gai'don that much more imminent. I somewhat reluctantly now begin "Towers of Midnight" tomorrow, and soon I'll be through my first read o
  14. You're not alone. I've been reading (inconsistently) since September 2009, with some breaks here and there, and I'm finally going to start Towers of Midnight tomorrow or the next day. I had been dreading that with the realization that there would be no more WoT books for me to read for more than a year, but then I decided I'd just re-read the whole thing again, and since it's taken me about two years with some breaks to read other things, I figure I may try to read A Song of Ice and Fire between certain books, because I definitely don't want to get to Fires of Heaven and Lord of Chaos until ne
  15. I don't think the Creator needs to be featured in the last book. It would greatly detract from the realism of the books. *Sarcasm over*
  16. Um, she had to commit suicide to be able to give the information. "I will not betray the Great Lord until the last hour of my death", or something like that. She betrayed him, so she had to die, and I imagine suicide would be better off than whatever treatment the Chosen or any of the Black Ajah sisters would give her, or, more likely, whatever ramifications the oaths she took to the Great Lord would have on her in that last hour.
  17. The second Scientific Revolution hasn't yet happened. Kind of Christian Dark Ages, just without the religion. People wanting to believe in a God without proof there is one. Silly people.
  18. OR maybe Jordan got tired of Perrin's character and didn't know what else to do with him (as he had better plans for Mat/Rand), so he just got lazy for three books when it came to Perrin.
  19. He probably wouldn't perceive Asmodean as a threat, especially if he could take stronger Forsaken like Rahvin and Sammael.
  20. I'd put it on par with Moiraine's, but Moiraine didn't actually die, so Verin's takes the cake. Moiraine's "death" made me more upset, though, as I had been more attached to her for a longer period of time. Verin's awesomeness just came out of nowhere, from being a minor character who knows a bit too much to suddenly being a minor character who's freakin' awesome.
  21. I don't think Demandred is in Seanchan, or that he had much influence with it period. Yes, he had an alliance with Semirhage, but Seanchan seems to be just Semirhage's domain. Demandred may have had influences there (and if this is so, then shouldn't he also have influences in the White Tower as he was also in an alliance with Mesaana?), but I'm sure he has his own armies, as the Seanchan would have been Semirhage's armies had she not been revealed and Tuon (the real one) been killed.
  22. Faile's storyline easily could have been solved in one book. Have her kidnapped in the beginning of the book, and then toward the end of the book, Perrin saves her. Nothing of importance happened to make that story arc span more than one book.
