  1. I agree that Mat grew up, but seems to be the least changed of all the main characters. To me, he the main way he changed is that he got smarter. I'm always a little surprised when I go back to reread and see him do something really dumb in the first book, like talking about Trollocs out-loud in Baerlon when he'd just been told not to, or going off to explore in Shadar Logoth, when they'd just been told not to. He was tricksy and mischievous back then, but he didn't truly have a grasp on true deception. I think his experiences in the world and his memories from the Finns ultimately changed tha
  2. I think $35 (or 34.99) is the retail price, from what I remember.
  3. I don't remember reading a lot of reviews on the last books, but that doesn't mean there weren't a lot; I don't usually go looking for that sort of thing. Last year, I think I only read Leigh's and Jason's. I wouldn't assume it's a bad thing. They may just want to keep as much of the last book as quiet as possible, since it is the last book. I would think the publisher would make that decision, but it also could be an author/editor request.
  4. I like the theories that the quote about "throwing it away" could refer to Callandor, Fain's dagger, or the bloodknives' rings. With regards to the quote saying "it" instead of "them"... Gawyn might just put one ring on. He wouldn't really need all 3 to give him an edge. I rather like the idea posted at TL that this could be Galad learning he has another half brother I like this theory too; it was the first thing I thought of when I read that quote. I wasn't sure if that was just me, though, since I REALLY want to see Galad find out that Rand is his brother. Glad someone else thi
  5. I thought this one might be Gawyn with the bloodknives' rings.
  6. I have so always wanted Logain and Leane together, ever since she tried out her feminine wiles on him ha ;)
  7. Thanks for the reply, Suttree. I admit I have not been around in several weeks; this is my first time back in a while. I came by mostly to see if there was any discussion on Leigh Butler's review. So if things have improved, then that's great. I stopped hanging around back around the time when the Mat chapter and the prologue were released, I believe. For what it's worth, I have never seen your critiques as out of hand or repetitve, so I wouldn't apply the 'beating a dead horse' schtick to you. Your criticisms are usually professional and sincere, whereas some other people's sometimes come off
  8. I'm kind of late to the party, but I wanted to add my two cents, especially since this is pretty much the one and only time I'll say this. Personally, I'm just sad that the WOT Discussion boards here on DM have turned into this, on the eve of the release of the last book. I was really excited to get back into things here on these boards, to flail and discuss and theorize for the last time before AMOL comes out. But this is the first time I've even logged in here in weeks, because it's become such a toxic place. It's not fun at all. I've mostly been hanging around tor.com and other places, with
  9. Nothing in Texas at all?! That's so upsetting. I wonder if I can make it to another one somewhere else.
  10. I just reread LoC and am constantly surprised it's a favorite of so many people. I guess it's because the last third of the book is really stellar, and it is - Dumai's Wells is freaking amazing. But wow, seriously nothing happens in the first half of the book. It's incredibly slow. Before I started rereading it,almost every single thing that I remembered happening in that book happened pretty much in the last third of the book, beginning with Nynaeve healing Logain and Egwene going to Salidar. Rand meeting with the Aes Sedai and all that ensues from there, Perrin turning up, Min turning up, M
  11. Oh heck no. But then, I never do that. I know a lot of people do that often with books. For me, it's a big no-no, especially with a book like this I've been waiting a lot for and that really means something to me. I mean, sure, I'm excited to see how it all ends, but how we get to the end is just as important to me.
  12. Yeah...the Mat/Tuon outriggers would have been awesome. I always got the impression that more people were excited for the Tam prequel, but I Mat and Tuon in Seanchan were the ones I was most looking forward to.
  13. The Mat/Tuon chapters are the one thing I really love about COT.
