  1. Ty you all for your replies! :)) I've just recommended the site to a friend that i just found out has read the books, i hope they decide to join. Looking forward to talking to you all!
  2. Ty Daruya! I will definetly be joining the social groups soon. The little ive seen of this site so far has impressed me! Gj to all members n staff!
  3. Hello all! I'm very excited to join this forum....Its actually the first forum I've ever joined! I'm 31 years old from Athens, Greece. Born and raised till 12 years old in New York, then moved here. A big reader but with very little experience in the fantasy world (for my friends that do read fantasy zero experience). At 14-15 years old i read the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings and even though i really enjoyed them i didn't touch another fantasy book until 2012 when i started reading the Game of Thrones; because i couldn't wait for the next season to air on tv! It was a great change from the other genres of fiction i was accustomed to. Made me fall in love with the fantasy genre. Once i finished GOT's book 5 "A Dance with Dragons" i NEEDED (haha) a substitute until the next book would come out. I walked into a bookstore the same night and scrolled through the English fantasy section and fell upon A Wheel Of Time. The store held 3 books only, book 1 to 3 (didnt know at the time that there were more books to it, lucky me). It had the "international bestseller" tag on it... so said wth it will hold me at least till GOT's next book; i bought the first. WELL..... needless to say i swallowed that book whole. Loved it. Rushed to the book store upon completion to buy the next book, wondering at the same time how would Jordan manage to finish what he had opened up in the first book in just 2 more... to my surprise the whole series was there!! The first feeling was shock.. what did i get my self into! 14 books plus a prequel! I knew i was going to have to finish what i started off with the first book. It was too good not continue it, but was afraid i might get tired of it. I had never read a series of this epic length. After finishing the 2nd, i bought ALL the remaining books. There was no doubt in my mind i was seeing this through. Its been the best experience i have ever had in literature. Due to work and a new member in the family :) i haven't been able to read with my usual speed this last year so i'm just at book 9 still. Every free waking moment i have goes to a few pages of the series. I'm in love with the writing, with the depth of information given and the descriptions but most of all with the characters. It itches me that i cant sit down for hours to read anymore but must admit that even the waiting to pick the book up is sweet haha. I will read the Game of Thrones book 6 but i'm not waiting for it anymore. It will have to wait till i finish A Wheel of Time. The BEST series in any genre I've ever read! I thank Robert Jordan for giving us such a great book to read and Brandon Sanderson for ensuring us that it was completed. Looking forward to reading and discussing thoughts and information in this site. I will tread carefully though cause i'm afraid of spoilers ;) Till next time, Kostas A few of favorite quotes till i find that section in the forum (sorry if not appropriate here): Run when you have to, fight when you must, rest when you can. -Elyas Machera, The Eye of the World, Chapter 27 You'll use it, boy, and as long as you hate using it, you will use it more wisely than most men would. Wait. If ever you don't hate it any longer, then will be the time to throw it as far as you can and run the other way. -Elyas Machera, The Eye of the World, Chatper 30 I will hate the man you choose because he is not me, and love him if he makes you smile. -Lan Mandragoran, The Eye of the World, Chapter 48 There is one rule, above all others, for being a man. Whatever comes, face it on your feet. -Lan Mandragoran, The Great Hunt, Chapter 7 Do you have any idea how long it takes to dig graves for twenty-three oak trees? -Davram Bashere, Lord of Chaos, Chapter 2 I think it was the rooster. Wetlander humor is strange. -Enaila, Lord of Chaos, Chapter 4: A Sense of Humor I killed the whole world, and you can too, if you try hard. -Lews Therin Telamon, The Path of Daggers, Chapter 21 A man who trusts everyone is a fool, and a man who trusts no one is a fool. We are all fools if we live long enough. -Lews Therin Telamon, Winter’s Heart, Chapter 25
