  1. I'm satisfied with the plot and how the series ended as a whole. I do wish Rand hadn't survived as I feel it would have been a more fitting sacrifice than Egwene's. After all, Taim? Really? Why couldn't Logain die killing him instead? I'm disappointed that we didn't get to see more of Moiraine. I looked forward to reading her and Lan's reunion almost as much as I've longed to read her and Siuan's but we got to see neither. Siuan's death was really the final blow and it's something that bugs me to no end. Siuan And Moiraine deserved to have a reunion scene. After all without their meddling
  2. I have to agree. As deaths go, hers was a pretty good one made all the better by the fact I was totally blindsided by it. My expectation was that she would go on to rule as the greatest Amyrlin that ever was... Now I feel her legacy will crumble and the only lasting part of it will be her sacrifice. Sorry, but how is it that saving the Pattern from imminent destruction is a cheap death? As for Rand and Egwene co-leading, it was never going to happen. For one thing, Rand has no interest in leading. He's always wanted a simple life while Egwene was the ambitious one. For another, they are
  3. It is just my opinion. Explaining or justifying one's opinion can sometimes be a tiring and futile undertaking... It might be simpler to just think of it this way: I hate Rand and I wanted him to die. I'm disappointed that he didn't. I can't say why or when I started to hate Rand... I think it was around the time the harem attached themselves onto him. While I appreciate at this point in the series the story must be plot driven, I can't help but feel the character development and interaction was very thin. It would have driven the nail home for me with much more force. I suppose it is
  4. Venaliter I agree with you wholeheartedly. I find it be an astounding farce. I can't believe the foundations of this book came from the same person who penned EotW. I hope Rand falls into a bog and dies without a soul in sight.
  5. Well I guess I was pretty disappointed with the Moiraine/Siuan developments as a whole. Now I might be a tiny bit biased as Moiraine is hands down my favourite character but let's not forget that these two set in motion the story most of us have been following for 14 books, making them pretty central characters. This is especially true where Moiraine is concerned. Poor Siuan seems to have gotten the short spiky end of the stick. In light of Siuan's death un-scene, I think a reunion scene would have been a great way of ensuring a lasting elegance and poignancy, even irony to her story. Let's no
  6. I think I've gotten ahead of myself... Pretty much done with aMoL and I haven't read a Moiraine/Siuan encounter. Did I miss it? Shouldn't there be a mention in the tent? I was so looking forward to their reunion.
