  1. I really laught of loud (spelling? hmm) whne I read this. Brilliant. But also true, I feel exatcly the same way. ans I really like your list and your reasoning, though my ranking would be slightly diffrent...
  2. thank you! this one makes total sense. Iguess i missed it for having to rely on the audio book. :-)
  3. hello everybody, so here are the logical errors that trouble me. I have not completed the book yet, I only have access to the audio book in my country so far, thus rereading is a bit difficult for me right now. i tried to find out about the logical problems in other threads, but i kept stumbling over spoilers, so that was no help for me. my problems are the following: 1. Pevara lying: When captuerd in the black tower, Pevara and Andrell tried to trick the turned weak kid into spilling shadow secrets. During this process Pevara lied outright. She said something like: "No, he ca't hear us" to trick the kid into believing them. This has been mentioned earlier in this thread also, I saw. what is up with that? 2.Gateways and the dream spike. When Perrins camps was locked in by a dream spike, gateways worked within the boarders of the dome, but not going outside or inside. Perrin used this to escape the whitecloaks. Now gateways don't work inside a dreamspike dome at all? WHY? 3. Masking the ability to chanell When Mogidien was captured by Nyneave and Elayne she taught them that it is possible to mak ones ability ot chanel with an inverted weave. Using this, they were able to keep one of the forsaken hidden in a camp full of Aes Sedai for month. Later they were able to disguise themselves and leave the Tarasin Palace undetected. Why can Egwene not use this while in the middle of the Sharan Army? Or Leana for that matter? WHY? I would really appreciate some answers for this, if you have them! Thank you!
  4. I have to say I feel so sorry for Isam the poor thing, when we learn about his horrible past in the prologue. The poor thing didn't even have a chance, growing up like this. I know that he grew up to be a bastard and he will proberbly die and deserves to, but still... since I heard his storry this morning I can't forget about it and imagine this poor child all alone in the town being brainwashed with constant terror. This is the worst thing in the whole series so far, maybe besides the making of thakandar blades by klilling people and the whole concept of domane. Do you think there might be a chance for him to find some kind of salvation at least? Or a meeting between him and Lan? Lan killing him in honor or any such thing... Well, I guess not.
  5. I agree with you, I think the basic colour should be neutral, I always pitured an off white, like te white tower, but it doesn't really say anywhere. "The Aes Sedai Shawl is embroidered with vines, leaves or flowers: every shawl is different. In the center of the back is a large teardrop, the flame of Tar Valon. Each shawl has a long fringe in the colour of the wearers Ajah." This is from the Glossary of new Spring the Graphic Novel. So as pretty as the fan made shawls are, the embroidery is missing in all of them.
  6. Thank you for this post! this really hit my original point. I am gratefull for all the "plot gartification" we are gatting now, and I totally get that no one can ore would copy s.o.s original writing style but there are differences and being geeky and pasionate <i like to point them out. I also notices trousers vs, breeches. But didn't Lans description change, though I couldn't tell when: In the beginning he was always looking like "he was being carved from stone" the planes and angles happen later, and I remember noticeing them to happen. But was this a Sanderson change or before? I coudn't recall. What I really do love about Jordan is his originality and being right on to the point with descriptions, like this on: (Mat having dance down the staff of an in in "Lord of Chaos": On of the older serving maids was rubing her food, leaning against a wall, but the rest was looking at him, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. Just love it!
  7. In my opinion, they just want Rand to regard the Aiel as an end in themselves, not just a means to an end, to quote Kant, and via Avienda they want to confront him with a real person representing the Aiel, one who he can not treat as a piece on a stones borad. They want her to get under his skin. Maybe they chose her because of a dream, or because she is about his age and pretty, I don't know.
  8. and is there a more convinient way to post or am I just not getting how this works?


  9. and Mat and Perrin (minus the wolf dream) the most.

    Which do you like best?

    How is the wether in California?

  10. Nice to meet you, too :-D

    I'm affraid I'm on my 4th reread, or rather I relisten to the genius audiobook for the 3rd time.

    This is the coolest thing, for it enables me to do chores, work out or cross distances while consuming WoT.

    Currently I am on LoC, and I find staying with Rand through his paranoia a chore in itsself. I hate him counting dead women.

    I prefer al ...

  11. Nice to meet you too! Wich book are you on? or are you on a reread?

  12. hey!

    actually very cold, minus 10°C. the river in my town froze over this week.

    but the fifth season, carneval is starting, and archaic festivals make you feel warmer...

    nice to meet you!

  13. Hi Marlis Who the weather in Germany?

  14. Please understand me, I am not complaining I do understand why, I am just pointing out. How does Cadsuane change? Maybe I don't relate to her enough to notice. Do you agree with my depiction of the changes? I feel that in the case of Elayne it matters, because the narators attitude towards the character changes. Can you see what I mean? ...and sorry, I am too tiered to sketch out Avienda and the Aiel tonight. Tomorrow evening.
