Been reading the series since there was only one book out, one of those that waited 2 and 3 years for each new book in the series.I first picked up TEOTW because it was a big book, I was so tired of small little books that I finished in 1 day , didn't know there would be sequels until I finished the book and read the adver on the back pages.I figured ok I've read trilogies and book series before, that kinda intrigues me. Had no idea I would be waiting twenty years to finish it. I'd like to say it's been simply amazing,WOT is IMO the best fantasy story that has ever been told. Jordan has built a world more complete,with more detail than any author I've ever read. Since I decided early to re-read the series before each new book comes out, I've probably read some of the early books 20 or more times,and although the surprise is gone I still find myself enraptured by Jordans world with each reading. The release of AMoL will be bittersweet to me, I want to know the end of our characters stories, yet I dread the series being over, to never have that thrill of each new book, of having this wonderful story expanded, of the discoveries over each new hill, makes me sad.
