  1. She's a know-it-all. Not so much in a knowledge sense (although she does know a lot from Siuan's training), but more as in "I'm right and everyone else is wrong." I hate to generalize, but I would bet that most people in the world are bothered by that. Who here can say they enjoy listening to someone like that? I think the term "know-it-all" pretty much sums it up, and that's why Egwene bothers so many readers.
  2. Isn't there a part in one of the later books, after Egwene is raised to Amyrlin but before she is captured by the Tower AS, when she says to herself something along the lines of she knows that she's in the right, because she has the whole world to take care of? I have no idea which book it's in, but that part always bothered me. It was a very audacious assumption that, even at her young age, she knew what was best for everyone, better than anyone else. I know she's really smart and was trained well by Siuan, but what an arrogant statement. Can anyone help find that chapter?
  3. Interesting thoughts. By now, the Seanchan SHOULD know what AS can and cannot do with the power. It stands to reason that they are smart enough to have learned about the three oaths. However, if any BA were captured, will the Seanchan still probe to see what leashed AS can and can't do with the power? This would then lead them to discover certain discrepancies, and if they are smart enough, figure out that some of their leashed AS are darkfriends. I guess this all depends on what Sanderson meant by all of the BA being seen healthy and alive after the attack. I guess it's a possibility tha
  4. Thanks for the responses! I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Yes, it's not that big of a deal, but it did throw me off for a minute, which is why I posted my question. Thanks again.
  5. Thanks for the welcome! I just started a topic, I appreciate the help.
  6. In the epilogue of TGS (p. 1066 in the paperback), Egwene is reading reports on the Black Ajah who fled the Tower after Egwene's ascension to the Amyrlin Seat. She distinctly says, "Each of the Black Ajah members on Verin's list had been seen healthy and alive following the Seanchan attack. But most had escaped before Egwene arrived at the Tower to take her seat." The number she gives is "some sixty Black sisters" (p. 1065). However, on p. 1067, it says that "Each woman on Verin's list was accounted for. She'd been executed, she'd been captured, she'd fled the White Tower the day of Egwene's a
  7. Hello, I just registered to this community, and this is also the first WoT community/forum I've ever joined, although I've been reading this series since I was 14. Here we are 15 years later... I don't know why it's taken me so long to join a WoT community. I rarely get to chat about my favorite books with anyone I know, so I'm excited about joining now. When KoD came out, I read it immediately, but then life got really busy, so I didn't have time to read TGS or ToM when they were released. I only just finished TGS, literally, right now. I have a quick question, maybe someone can help me
