  1. Rhuarc getting turned. I was hoping Graendal would have gotten balefired to undo the compulsion and his death but it didn't happen. Others included Egwene and Elayne's babies. I was really sad that Verin did not come back as a hero of the horn. It was kind of a longshot but the sheer brilliance of what she did and giving Egwene a fighting chance against Mesaana made me hope. The damane issue not getting worked out made me sad as well. I know everything couldn't be neat and tidy but I was hoping on that point.
  2. Lots of action here. I'm just wondering how Demandred and co. will be taken care of. Wouldn't it be funny if Demandred never saw Rand and he gets killed by some random channeler? And where is Fain?
  3. How is Palpatine a jerk? He's just the embodiment of evil. Biff...lol. Yeah, big jerk.
  4. "Polka will never die!" ~ Waldo Butters from the Dresden Files
  5. The Mayans must have released a virus because the world didn't end by my sense of smell and hear has been greatly reduced. I hate getting sick.
  6. Cold Days again by Jim Butcher.
  7. The first one I read was Centaur Aisle. I have since read up to Zombie Lover. Some are better than others. They are a nice read for just fluff.
  8. That about makes up my list as well. I also like some Chrichtons books as well as some of Grishams.
  9. The Bourne Identity by Ludlum
  10. Hmmm, that is a strange one to see. To my mind he is the greatest fantasy author out right now and the series was met with a ton of critical praise. The odd part from your take is thinking it's not engaging and is uninspiring? If anything it goes far deeper than your average fantasy story, has a fully fleshed out world and incorporates philosophical musings that hold up even outside of genre(Bakker has a PHD in philosophy). Out of curiosity what are some of your favorite series? I had the same issues. Too much philosophical musings takes the fun out of a book for me. Having taken philosophy courses in college, I'm not one to mix my fantasy and philosophy together much. Or it could be I don't like his style of writing. It seemed too...professional, like reading a textbook. Like UncleButcher, I loved Rothfuss's books. I also like Butcher's Dresden series as well as the fantasy trope ridden Codex Alera. I've read LoTR as well as the WoT books.
  11. She is passively on the side of Voldemort. I can't think for a second she didn't have any idea what was going on. Mad Eye was known for relentlessly opposing evil and her keeping the eye was a sign of her complete immersion into evil.
  12. Try out Jim Butchers Codex Alera and Dresden Files
  13. Yes, but the two minutes it took you to explain it more than makes up for being beaten.
  14. Too many to list but what springs to mind is Mat whipping the G-men with a stick and after Perrin stating, "They have caged Shadowkiller", their eventual yet simple reply, "We come." Still gives me goosebumps.
