  1. Rand I like him and can symphatize with what he was going through. I cheered at Dumai's Well, since I perceived that event as his turning point as the real Dragon in the eye of the Randlanders. I understand why he became harder by each day, but I can't help feeling more and more detached from him. The ZenRand (or RandZen?) was similarly disconcerting, since I felt he became "meta-human". Fortunately that was a trick. I like him better at aMoL, with him showing some emotions etc. I love his and Elayne's scene at aMoL, but I think the ending is less strong than it should be. Perrin was so
  2. I will buy a remixed TGS-TOM-AMOL :)
  3. Ooh, I am waiting for such fanfic! And please, someone make Moiraine-Lan reunion too! :D
  4. And yet, we have a corpse with hair matching Elayne's mounted on a horse to fool the Andoran army that their queen has fallen... This trigger speculation that the corpse is Morgase.
  5. 1) Androl's gateway is a Talent. He weaves differently than other channelers. He even doesn't have to study the terrain before making a gateway. This might be too much, but many of the lost Talents manifest themselves by "the channeler just know it", like Aviendha's detecting the fuctions of ter'angreal, Elayne's making of ter'angreal, Nynaeve's earlier five-power Healing (generic Aes Sedai's Healing only use Spirit, Air, Water), etc. 2) During previous books, Gateways did not play more creative parts in battle, telecommunication etc because of, well, Aes Sedai's conservativeness. Egwene's
  6. The similar situation was happened to Lan. His relation to Edeyn in New Spring could also be considered as a rape. While he enjoyed the physical aspect of the relation, he was disgusted by it emotionally, and we can see the power play interaction between the two of them clearly. I was, and still am, disgusted reading that scene.
  7. Mat's flippant attitude makes readers (well, at least me) take his experiences less serious than we (I) should. The loss of his eye, this incident with Tylin, even his marriage with Tuon. I bet if Mat is married to Faile, we (I) still can laugh at his marital life. I still like Perrin better than Mat, though :P
  8. Yeah, Slayer should die at the fighting in ToM. Then, Perrin should has great fight with Lanfear during aMoL, instead of snapping her neck in last couple of paragraphs. Although, action-wise, I have to say that both Perrin's fight against Slayer were cool. Veeery cool.
  9. Well, Perrin got Faile as wife, that is one cruel torture by RJ :P On more serious note, Ashaman who crazy and killed by Rand (or Taim) also suffered terrible fate. Rand giving Fedwin Morr poisoned tea is one of sad scenes for me...
  10. I hope we can get Demandred adventure in Shara, how he managed to control his armies, why were they loyal to him and the Sharan prophecy on Last Battle. For little interaction between Demandred and the female Ayyad, she was not Turned, yet she was very loyal to Demandred. That was interesting. Did she a "Black Ayyad"? Or did she a woman madly in love? Or a combination of both?
  11. I vote for: 1) plenty use of interesting magic 2) intricate politics 3) interesting character interactions As others have noted, the biggest flaw of WoT is the middle books. Since I was introduced to WoT on Winter's Heart, I don't have to wait as long as others. Brandon's books are a very much welcomed relief for me; I prefer a finished (while not perfect) WoT, rather than unfinished WoT. I also followed GRRM. I was excited at first, but the low use of magic rather turned me off. Not too mention the graphic violence in aSoIaF made me dizzy.
  12. Nynaeve. Other fav characters: Moiraine Perrin Cadsuane Egwene (yeah, I am biased on Aes Sedai :P)
  13. Actually, some of the Forsaken were downright nasty, Rahvin as a sex-crazed maniac, Mesaana who designed a brain-washing system of education in the previous Age, Semirhage the sadist, etc. It just that RJ described their atrocities subtly, without graphic sex/violence/whatever. This is one reason that attract me to WoT. I just can't stomach too much blood and violence. The Forsaken, however, were spending too much time for internal squabbling, and some just stupid (or arrogant), waiting for Rand only to be killed by him or his allies. Graendal was cautious, thus managed to survive until th
  14. Moiraine and Lan reunion was off-screen, which is disappointing, imho. Moiraine and Siuan reunion was ... not exist? Another disappointing fact. I don't think aMoL needed several chapters of Moiraine PoV, but just a little personalized on screen meetings with Siuan dan Lan are great. I love Moiraine's uncertainty when meeting Nynaeve at FoM, and then Nynaeve hugged her. This conveyed the emotions and tensions between those two. I just wish there were scenes like this with Moiraine/Lan and Moiraine/Siuan.
