  1. Elayne acts like an idiot, and gets people killed for no good reason.
  2. I'm not sure he winds up with any of them, considering he just walks off and abandons the lot of them.
  3. The first part, Tam and Rand coming into Emonds Field, the trip back and their evening... something about that just clicked with me.
  4. All I will say is, I wish it had been as good as The Way of Kings.
  5. Well, I know for a fact that people are still arguing over Star Trek TOS 46 years after it came out; I imagine things will continue here.
  6. Alright a few things did occur, mostly it's about Elayne taking baths, Elayne's politics, Aes Sedai politics, Perrin's " Nothing else matters" etc etc. When you wait two years to get a book, and you get CoT, it tends to make one cranky. It was what 4 years between Winter's heart until KoD came out. And the books before that weren't exactly pulitzer prize winner's either.
  7. It depends on what you call valuable. I, for one, enjoy that the wheel of time has so much background information. It makes the world feel alive. It makes for a much more complicated and realistic world than some other books. I agree that few shocking or major plot twists happen, but to say it could be skipped due to being inconsequential seems a bit ridiculous. Ninety percent of CoT is filler. The only major thing that moves the plot forwards is at the end.
  8. I think it's important to give credit where credit is due. Rulius got this right over a year ago (proof is on the book cover) -- congrats sir! Mik, that's a really nice theory. I have some ideas on how that sequence of events will be portrayed in the book, but I haven't decided where to post them yet. Why thank you hehe.
  9. Yes, a thank you to Brandon for finishing what could have been the biggest cliff-hanger in history. I must admit, I kinda don't want to read AMoL right away, because when I finish well..that's about twenty years of my life that will be.. over so to speak and no more looking forwards to the next book. Will be pretty sad i think.
  10. I concur.. my thoughts pretty much exactly on Gawyn. Now character(s) I hate? I hate all the stupid petty scheming selfish idiotic nobles..no matter where they come from most of them are all the same.
  11. I have always thought it was some sort of aircraft. Not much else it could have been.
  12. I cannot fathom how anyone would rather read CoT than pretty much anything, It's simply awful. You can skip 90 percent of the book and not miss anything significant.
  13. That is very interesting. I haven't thought of that in along time...
  14. Well.. true the power could remove the rubble. I guess not having the Ogier close it up is just a plot hole. Or something.
