  1. My dislikes are Faile, Cadsuane, Elaida. Faile is just intensely annoying. cadsuane..just utterly un-human, and Eladia for nearly destroying the White Tower and her almost genocidal attitude towards the Blue Ajah.
  2. Thanks guys. I'll go and order the Kindle version then.
  3. I know it shows the Kindle version for release on the same day, but is that really correct? As Harriet normally stipulates at least a three month gap between hard cover and Kindle release. I'd rather ave the Kindle version, but I don't fancy waiting for three months extra for it.
  4. When will we see this in print? And will Narg do signings?
  5. 21 years. I started in 1993, I think. And finished it the day after aMoL was released. If I do a complete reread I can do it about 5 or 6 weeks.
  6. Wow, Arkadious that is one sweet piece of ink. The artist is very good and has captured Mat rather well.
  7. Favourite character is a toss up between Mat and Thom. Both showed capabilities and strength when needed. Plus Mat made me laugh. For respect, it has to be Tam, he saved Rand as a baby and treated him as his own flesh and blood. There is much that can be said about Tam and what he did.
  8. 1. tSR 2. tEotW 3. tDR 4. tGS 5. tFoH 6. aMoL 7. KoD 8. tGH 9. LoC 10. ToM 11. WH 12. aCoS 13. tPoD 14. CoT
  9. Very good indeed. I had seen the clip previously. But this is so very well done.
  10. Difficult. Certainly the Black Tower ranks up there. The not killing women I don't see as a flaw. it caused problems for him and others. If Aiel women are brought up to fight Rand refusing to let them fight was callous as it goes against their lifestyle. So, for me, it's his refusal to let women fight. that at times seriously annoyed me.
  11. To be honest, and many have said it, we should be grateful we actually got resolution. Because RJ had said he would destroy everything. Leaving us without an end. Sure, the final three aren't the same. But they are an ending. Which is what we all wanted. For that I am eternally grateful.
  12. Exactly. I have been in from near the beginning of the series and would be gutted if it was split and other authors stepped in and created their own part of the WoT. The series is special to me and to see it crippled and torn apart just for the sake of telling say Tam's story or the full background to Thom and Taringail would be disheartening.
  13. Tam lighting Rand's funeral pyre. When he spoke I broke down and sobbed my heart out. Because not only were the words perfect for the moment, it was then you knew the series was done. It still gets me even thinking about Tam's words. Then I would say Noal rescuing Olver.
  14. The one main character though who grabbed me from the off was Thom. There was something magical about his persona. He just seemed so world-wise. Plus with Mat and his impish ways those two for me carried it carried, when Thom went down in Whitebridge I was gutted.
