  1. All these years later still one of my .favorite quotes is when Rand leaves that Shienaran Lord behind. "May the hand of the creator shelters you and the last embrace of the mother welcomes you home". Gives me goosebumps every time
  2. Basically dream shard was a sham that Brendon introduced in the AMOL. It was never even mentioned let alone used before that in the series so personally I do not hold to dream shard explanation. Also in that quote from Stag and lion that someone mentioned in the comment. Ishy was lying as in the prologue he clearly mentions his surprise at finding Lews Therin Raving mad.
  3. I am just disgusted why everything has to devolve into politics and we make it the lowest denominator? Politics is art of finding possibilities among improbabilities. All this debate on sexism, racism or any other ism is just taking the fun out of living. What happened to taking a good old joke in its spirit and roll with the punch until you get a chance to put your own in. Do you think that building a world where we cannot joke about anything is going to help us build a better world? for me one of the best quotes in the series was by Brigette . " If you are going to di
  4. @Thrasymachus I really liked you until you put eggy dearest above Moiraine. I mean even the three eyed thing that Rand kills in mirror world had better character development than her. For me Rand Moiraine Nynaeve Perrin Mat Loial That old Aes Sedai who really irked Rand yes Cadusane Amys Sorilea Rhuarc and a whole long list and after that the Rand's dead horse Red and even if you insist only as a last resort the eggy as my least favorite character in the book
  5. LoL Rj created this series so that can write hate mail about Eggy the three legged monster P.S I don't even know where did that come from lol
  6. Why can't we keep eggy out of it?????????? If you want to compare than obviously Nynaeve is one of the best written character in the book and Eggy the exalted hyena is the worst. Even the nameless myrdraal that chased Rand in the woods had better character development lol
  7. Hi, everyone I am back, but what yo gs do not understand is that when decision to split the final book into three was first announced. We had some very heated debates here on a thread named greed. Me and few others rasied exactly these points. We were of the view that BS is not RJ. THEREFORE, he will never be able to finish this book satistfactorily and time has proven us right
  8. That is why people like me do not come to the DM anymore. LOL maybe we are too old and do not understand the modern tastes. I mean comparing apples and oranges do not come even close. what people find refreshing I find revolting. While Rj's writing is replete with moments where you just have to put the book down and take a deep breath. BS will never give you a moment where yo have to have retrospection and or revelation. Show me one moment in Bs's writing to match moiraine's story of Menthren or Nyn's journey through Borderlands garnering support for Lan. Just to name two of the events of whic
  9. can someone second? Eldrick you are the only self claimed long time fan as I said an alias or bs
  10. I guess it is natural that people who has not waited or these books for years and have not done multiple rereads will find bs more likable. You see for most of us old timers wanted the story to have world building and depth in both characters and plot. Maybe, newer readers just want instant gratification. however, you have to remember that this is fantasy not a comic book.
  11. Alas! the world has really changed. Three ages into the thread and no one has really bashed Eggy the exalted one? What a sad day I have been destined to live. Hell no one has even come out to defend our very own Gollum the eggy. Perhaps, hate is a too strong a word to describe my feeling, but severe dislike is not too far. You see she has been one character that you had to make others to look stupid to make her look good. Right from the beginning she was a slut who latched on to whoever, provided her with maximum benefit. If she cannot have Rand to lord over, she will flirt shamelessly with A
  12. Hi, Welcome to community i do not come here very often now a day but DM has a special place in the heart o us old fans. I d sincerely hoe that this series gives you as much pleasure, happiness and memories that I still treasure. By the way I am rereading the series and am currently on the Shadow Rising or tSR. Stay happy and blessed.
  13. If I started writting every single scene it will be too much one was already mentioned the ingtar scene another was the story of mentheren and list can go on and on. However, there are two scenes from late books that stand out in my memory. one was of course Nynaeve and her "will ke ride alone". I just literally put the book down and sat there for ten minutes. other was the watch tower scene from one of BS books. In which the son of commander gives up his place to send the son of widow as a massenger. One of these days I am going to gather enough courage to start a final reread. I just do not
  14. Dear Fionwe how many ties we have fought over our eggy the exalted one I have lost count, but saying that eggy is stronger than perrin in Tar is a new high by even your very high standards. I mean she couldn't even have come close to slayer let alone kill him.
  15. There is one thing that was hinted at earlier and everyone keeps forgetting is that these guys are extremely provincial. They are behaving in self preservation and are trying to shrink back into their shell to protect themselves from all the changestjat are taking place in their lives. Also one has to remember that they do not have the benefit of reading the different povs like us. All they see is a mysterious woman or rather a set of mysterious women they re conditioned to misttust. I mean I absolutely love moraine she is a wonderful character.but you have to see things from their perspective
  16. please do not get Mr Ares started because if you do you do so at your own peril and do not tell me later on that i did not warn you lol
  17. To be completely honest I was never really excited by Eggy dearest getting stole. It was really pathetic writing on RJ's part. However, the way her characte continues to deteriorate is amazing. Someone once wrote that RJ should have made her a taveren and be done with it and we would have accepted whatever he and then BS dished out to us. She was made out to be the girl next door, but was portrayed as the worst bitch in the town. If, you think this is severe, you should read my earlier posts. lol
  18. Jack that was perhaps one of the best comments that I have read here at DM. Thank you, you just summed up what I wanted to say very nicely.
  19. [deleted] No one on this thread said that was well written. It is just a matter of interpretation of the importance of character. Sutt and company want to make out that character was more important and deserved more time and others are saying that he got what he deserved but his end was abrupt and needed better treatment, now how hard is that to understand.
  20. Hi people Just one very short comment. When I first picked up the series it was in paper back and carried the Fred Saberhagen comment on the title page,"Solid than a steel blade and glowing with true magic".I think that says it all. Weaknesses? I don't know, yes! Middle books were bit slow, but he always intended to use them as a building block to the big end. Which, unfortunately he couldn't.
  21. Bravo. Actually I'm not sure I'd drag stereotypical geographic or religious matters into it, but the rest is all completely true, for whatever reasons, right down to the love/hate. Bravo. Actually I'm not sure I'd drag stereotypical geographic or religious matters into it, but the rest is all completely true, for whatever reasons, right down to the love/hate. yes we have been contesting this point back and forth for years, but here are couple of things that you chose to ignore in your excessive love for poor old underrated, misunderstood and ill treated eggy dearest. You c
  22. actually I agree with most of the above mentioned sentiments, but I think that legacy of the series is going to remain undiminished at least for the people who read it from the beginning and even the new readers are going to love the series. First books are simply too epic for anyone to put them down once they start.
  23. Hi, everyone actually I have to agree with sutt BS just did not get it he never got to show anything he just plainly told us that this is brilliant because i am saying so. While RJ made even numb skulls like me see that what a brilliant manoeuvre someone has just pulled off.
  24. no mn I am talking about early polls when the a PoD came out and earlier most people used to complain that thing slowed off significantly from tSR. You are talking about recent polls. Sometime I forget how young all of you are by old you people mean a couple of years and by old I mean couple of decades lol.
