  1. Thank God I'm not the only person to have this problem. I read the books the first time and was constantly like " who is this person ". Then I joined this site and everybody seemed to know so much more about what was going on than I did. I didn't even remember some of the things they were talking about. Then I realized most of the members here have read the books 8,9,10 times. I found the WOT Ency., WOT wiki, Tar valon. Net, and bought the BWB so my second reread is going much smoother. I dont feel quite as stupid as I once did.

  2. Welcome ACS! Hope you enjoy the series as much as I do. Maybe the last book will be out by the time your done. Look around and have fun. Ask questions if you need to. Everyone is really nice and dont mind helping. Beware of spoilers!

  3. I started reading because it was a long series.I like reading books that are related or have reoccurring characters. A friend of mine told me I should give them a try and I've been hooked ever since. The characters are distinctive, in depth and have varied personality traits. The plots and subplots leave you guessing and it gives you just enough history to wonder what the world used to be like and where this is going.

  4. I prefer paperback to hardback. They are easier to tote around. 2 reads is all I can get out of a paperback though. They are pretty much falling apart at that point. The American editions are all that I have read. Would like to have them on E book.

  5. The Dark Tower series is awesome, even more when you know other King books. Now matter how often you read the DT, there's still something new to discover, and the end is just..... well, read it, then you know. :biggrin:


    Hm... does anyone else here think that the Mat-emoticon could be the gunslinger as well? :mat::biggrin: Must be the hat....


    I like the way most of his books tie in to one another or have crossover characters. And ya, the emoticon could be Roland. . . . if he wasn't smiling .:smile:

  6. Maybe you should try the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Its a short on magic but the characters are really fleshed out and the world is awesome. If your not really wanting to start a long series, The Talisman and Black House are both good and follow each other. If you can,t tell I've got King on the brain today.

  7. Shindlers List was in black and white. It really set the tone for the movie. There were only two scenes that had any color ( or colour if your from England) at all. It was almost shocking in its contrast. If you have seen the movie, you know what parts I'm talking about. It really drove home the horrors of the events.

  8. I know that an Aes Sedai can compel her Warder but when Alanna bonded Rand, she couldn't compel him. They didn't have the Warder bond in the AOL, so this would make Rand the first channeler of saidin to ever be bonded. Im guessing that you cant compel someone that has been bonded to you if they can channel.
