  1. Currently at 57% of Dragon Reborn In which . . . Perrin tries to do a good deed, but it blows up in his face . . . Perrin attracts the attention of a unwanted follower . . . And Min's visions are unfolding . . . Wow, Perrin has not had a good time and this was a pretty fun bit to read. I applauded him for going out and freeing the Aielman and almost burst out laughing when Gual the Aielman, instead of sneaking out of town, decided to call attention to themselves and dragged Perrin into killing more White Cloaks. And Perrin was already on the White Cloak's radar.
  2. Currently at 50% of The Dragon Reborn In which . . . Mat gets a free ticket out of Tar Valon The Trio makes plans and Nynaeve has a enlightening discussion with the Amyrlin Mat has a night out on the town and almost gets mugged (or does he!) Mat also reunites with a familiar face. * * * Mat is one lucky bastard and I wonder if it isn't because he an anomaly like Min who could see visions. He's beginning to grow on me a bit and seems to be most streetwise of the three boys from the Eomond's Field. Then he meets Thom who I knew was going to eventually show up again
  3. Currently at 44% of The Dragon Reborn In which . . . Mat kicks serious ass, The Trio tries to connect the dots and come up with nothing, Egwene runs into a familiar beautiful woman. Egwene go into a dream, cue Inception theme music Time. * * * Firstly, Mat has won major brownie points with me for putting Galad and Gawyn in their place. I don't hate those two, but they kinda rubbed me wrong when they seemingly ambushed the girls for answers. I think I already went over this before, but I'll bring it up. Firstly, they don't have to be in the know of what happene
  4. Currently at 39% of the Dragon Reborn In which . . . Egwene goes through three trials of being a wife and mother, Being in the ruins of Caemlyn with a trapped Rand. And being the Amrylin with a bunch of traitors. And Matt wakes up and probes the way out of Tar Valon. * * * I pretty much predicted that Egwene was going to have a dream (if it was?) about being Rand's wife. Pretty much all three of her experiences surround Rand and each time she had failed to help him. If these experiences are a reflection of her heart, could they be a representation of her having a hard
  5. I got as far as halfway through the second book before I got burned out, but I have watched the HBO show. I do know that the television follows the outline of the books, but goes its own way in regards to details. The books are on my reading list btw.
  6. Hmmm, it's hard to say. It reminds me of a Song of Fire and Ice where you have multiple characters in different locations across the land, but low in violence and sex. I do like how women seem to have a leading role in Randland's societies.
  7. Currently at 34% of the Dragon Reborn In which . . . Mat wakes up nude and gets some powerful visitors . . . Verin gives Egwene the Ring of Power - Dreams . . . Egwene is about to face her three fears . . . * * * The jury is still out on Mat. It seems that ever since he got his hands on the dagger his memory is foggy. Maybe he'll remember what a little git he was. But he has bigger worries as Selene seems to have him in her sights. I just hope Mat doesn't do anything stupid. This World of Dreams. Is that where Rand, Perrin, and Mat keep seeing so often in the
  8. Thanks! It's always good to hear stories like yours. (I usually get answers like these: "sorry, too long", "you didn't say that series has a million pages!", "I cannot read it anymore: boring as hell" etc.) However, if you don't mind, I'd recommend a few (very short) books that are great to read: Right now I got a book list of upcoming books. Acorna the Unicorn Girl series by Anne McCaffrey and Margaret Ball. Vampire Hunter D by Hideyuki Kikuchi The Magicians and Mrs. Quint trilogy by Mark Anthony When I first one series, I'll replace it with one from the list.
  9. I'm currently reading four books. Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I fell in love with the Starz television show and then the books. I'm reading them in chronological order and currently on the Lord John Grey spinoff series. Harry Potter by JK Rowling. It's been about ten years since I read the books and a friend and I are planning on going to Orlando to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter sometime next year. Currently on book 6. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. A friend recommended it to me and I'm still on the first book. And WOT. I tend to do most o
  10. Currently at 28% of The Dragon Reborn In which . . . The Braid and Dreamer become a trio with the inclusion of the Princess . . . Nyneve chase two boys out of her room . . . And the Wicked Bitch of Caemlyn makes a sudden appearance . . . * * * I'm going to come out and say it, I do not like Galad. He's too good looking and too good to be true. Usually when a sister or half sister (or in Elayne's case, not-sister) dislikes her brother and it has nothing to do with sibling rivalry, it usually means something. My respect for Nynaeve went up when she refused to succumb
  11. Then I'm very interested in your opinion 74% later. It was a low base, wasn't it? She just came off as a nosy, stubborn, git that thought she knew better than someone older and wiser than her. It seemed to be in the beginning was that she didn't like another woman coming to her village and playing the role of the Wise Woman when that was her role as the Wisdom. So, your opinion is now a little more positive about him? It's too early to say as I have yet to get to the chapter with him not passed out from all the evil he's absorbed from the Dagger.
  12. Who are your favourite characters? Do you dislike anyone? Do you see anyone in different lights now? So far my favorite is Rand because of the awesome character development he received last book. My impression of Nynaeve has improved since the first book because she's starting to grow on me and I love how she handled the Seanchan. Also, I'm digging her relationship with Lan though I wish she would just let it go with Moiraine, but time will tell. My verdict is still out on Mat until I see some development with him which I'm sure is coming in this book.
  13. Currently at 26% of the Dragon Reborn In which . . . Egwene and the girls return to Tar Valon and piss off the White Cloaks. Amrylin likes fishing. Egwene and Nynaeve form an undercover team I will call the Braid and Dreamer to locate the Black Ajah gang and get special permission slips to do it. * * * Egwene has definitely grown since Book 1. She's willing to act to protect herself and others. I like how being Leashed has affected her and she's willing to act out to keep from being restrained or entrapped again. Alas, doing so have given the White Cloaks more rea
  14. Been watching a lot of Archer and I thought what roles the cast of Archer would play in Wheel of Time. Rand = Sterling Malory Archer Because of attracting multiple women and because Archer would totally dig being the legenday Dragon Reborn. Perrin = Cyril.Figgis Because Cyril and Perrin are smart, but tend to overthink things and for some reason I think it would be hilarious for Cyril to run with wolves. Mat/Ray Gillette = Because neither one is afraid to call someone on their BS. Moraine / Malory Archer = Both are strong women who have to struggle with their underlings a
  15. So far my top book is the Great Hunt because of the wonderful character development for Rand. If the Wheel of time was an RPG, I would say that Rand leveled up a few times. Also, we got some cool scenes with Nynaeve and Egwene in dealing with the Seanchan. The Great Hunt feels like a game changer in a lot of ways.
