  1. I'm reading a mainstream novel that has a lot of fantasy flair - Her Fearful Symmetry. It's about the twin bond and ghosts. It's interesting in a kooky, bizarre way. . .which means I like it.
  2. Man, I'm glad you posted this because I've been looking for another series as well. I'm going to check out the Mistborn series.

    hi y'all

    Aiel Heart - Very cool that your name is going to be in AMoL. I'm supremely jealous. ;) And you are right about her point of view in ToM. That's mainly what made me think there's some sliver of goodness in her...or at least she's just a manipulative wench who ought to have been balefired a long time ago!
  4. Hi there. I'm also new to DM. I couldn't agree more with you about Mat and Egwene. Tuon is a gold mine of interesting backstory. Siuan is fun and I love Aviendha, although it seems like an awful lot of the female characters are huffy and persnickity. Still, it's the best fantasy series I've ever read. I tried to read other fantasy books after WoT and they just couldn't compare. I didn't even finish them! Nothing can compare to the rich detail and extraordinary imagination of Robert Jordan.

    I see you're an Alabama fan. I went to law school with two diehard Alabama fans and they converted me. Roll Tide!

    hi y'all

    Thanks for the welcome and the useful info. It will definitely come in handy! (And no confusion here!) I've finished all the books and I'm anxiously awaiting the release of A Memory of Light. I can't wait for it to come out! Every time I see Brandon Sanderson's progress bar go up I get excited. My favorite characters are Aviendha, Lan, and Mat. I find Elayne, Nynaeve, and (yes, I'll admit it) even Rand annoying. Mat took a while to grow on me - I didn't like his immaturity in the first few books - but I love him now. He's so funny, and I enjoy a reluctant hero. I like Aviendha and Lan because they are both strong warriors with soft sides who have been true to their nature throughout the entire series. I used to like Egwene and Perrin more in the earlier books, but I'm sorta off of them now. I liked Perrin's straightforwardness and loyalty, but I found his dogged persistence in finding Faile (which inextricably hardened him) to be exhausting. I think Egwene's a little ridiculous in her treatment of Gawyn, but I understand why she does it. As for my favorite Forsaken, well. . .they're all mostly unloveable, but I have a little bit of soft spot for Lanfear because I think she still has a pinprick of decency left somewhere in her. She wasn't attracted to the Dark One because of power but more out of revenge towards Lews Therin since he broke off his relationship with her. I made sure to donate to the JordanCon/Mayo Clinic initiative. It would be so cool if my name got drawn to be a character in the upcoming book! I do like to write too, but mostly I write on a professional level. Writing fiction is a hobby that I don't get to indulge in too often. I will be checking out the other forums and seeing how it all works. So far, I haven't found it too difficult to navigate.

    hi y'all

    Hello fellow WoT lovers and devotees! I'm a complete and total nerd (ok, I don't live in my mom's basement so maybe not a TOTAL nerd), but I think being a nerd is fun. By day, I'm an attorney. By night, I'm a literary/cat/baking/travel obsessed, easygoing lady. I hope to get to know you all better and find my own little niche in this community. :) Feel free to PM me. I confess to not being the most adept at understanding technology, so please have patience with me as I struggle through figuring out the inner workings of this site.
