  1. Hey Dusk, curious as to what some of your other favorite fantasy characters are? Cheers.Off the top of my head...Glokta - First Law Now I am blushing...
  2. When I left for work (I am in France) there was one hour to wait... Hopefully, when I'm back it will be available and downloaded!
  3. In 13 hours for me (France)... Considering taking a day off
  4. Hi, I have followed your advice... I have never listened to an audiobook in my life, so in "preparation" of listening to AMOL, I bought The Shadow Rising to see how it is.
  5. Do we know the reason for Harriet to delay the ebooks release? It does not make sense to me, and it is especially unfair to the "rest of the world" readers who will not be able to get a hardcopy either (by normal channels...) Is her decision irrevocable? Is there no way she could be convice to have the ebook release at the same time? (or is it technically too late anyway???).
  6. From book 3, I have re-read the entire serie at each new book, and in addition, I must have re-read the whole serie at least twice. When I started, only TEOTW and TGH were out. I remember very well where I bought the books and that I was looking for a long serie and thought that this one would be at least in 3 books... Well, I am so glad I picked up these books... Having a story being told over 20 years and still being excited about it is a great gift that RJ gave us.
  7. Yes please Why would it mean that he dies? Because BS says it is going to be "poignant" which I interpret as sad. And I think that the "something sad" might be Logain's death. Sorry English is not my first language....
  8. i am thinking a Forsaken too maybe I thought I would open a new thread regarding the identity of the POV in River of Souls. From BS interview, we have the following clues: He/she is: someone we know about a bit about their past, but not much someone whose motivation we already know about, but not all We also know that this part of the story is distracting is sad I would think it could be Logain or Slayer. For both, we know a bit about their history but there also a lot of blanks that would be interesting to find about. It could also reveal extra motives for what they do o
  9. - Rand will live (since the beginning of the series, it has been predicted that it woud die, it would be too obvious if he did. Also as explained by someone, it is very unusual for the main character to die in Fantasy books. It would be a "bad ending" and I don't thin it is RJ's style to write a bad ending). - Lan will live. He can't die because of Min's viewing and, also, as for Rand, his death has been so much predicted. He wil be a king again which is another similarity with Aragorn (figher on the road helping "commoners" and teaching them how to fight). - Nyn will live (because Lan will.
  10. Yes. No. It's not really a moral question. It's neither right nor wrong. If they want to do it, why not? Also, it wasn't a choice on the part of the ogier - you simply can't channel in stedding. No. Not really. The nature of free will means that people have the ability to make bad decisions, like joining the Shadow. The only real way to stop it is to deny people free will. If people can channel, it magnifies both the good and the harm they can do. The damane system merely shifts the power - rather than a bomb with free will, you have a man with free will with his finger on the button. The comm
  11. Excellent! I mostly agree with you, but would say that before opening a gateway, they would need to know where Mat or Perrin are.
  12. I hope you're right... It would be sad to have Lan dying after all he went through. There is also Min's viewing of the baby with a sword... but are we sure Nynaeve is not pregnant? How much time is it since they got separated?
