  1. I will be disappointed if they change too much from the books. I expect some story lines to be cut. Perrin should not spend 3 books rescuing Faile. Masema was another plot point that kind of didn't need that much devoted to it. However, the books already have diversity in race, class, religion, belief systems, sexuality, government systems, trade and more. The books fit into the context of today's climate without smashing us over the head with today's social climate. It's ahead of its time. If they add or alter too much to be "woke" I will be turned off and I DO fit a lot of what people consider under represented and under privileged groups. I have also noted how annoying it is when white, privileged Hollywood types try to shove that crap down under privileged people's throats as if I don't know better about representation and discrimination that I've faced and people like me.
  2. Since 1990 those original covers defined the series for me. While the ebook covers are artistic, they are like close up, zoomed in digitally enhanced images of someone's face for the most part. The UK covers are boring. There is nothing to them. For me they're designed like self-published covers I've seen, simple, because they can't afford an artist. Sweet's covers have landscape, characters and a scene depicted. The Eye of the World stands out as one of my favorite fantasy covers of all time. It's too bad Tor didn't realize how great they are for the most part. A few of the later books aren't as favored, but many of the digital ones don't really grab my interest with the exception of a few that were done fairly well, but that's only a few.
