  1. That was one of the more blatant ones, imo. We were told so much Grendael pets were always pretties or some such, that an old weathered man stuck out like a sore thumb then. Ingtar being the dark friend from shieran who the man who called himself Bors saw in the prologue of the great hunt. When rand goes to rescue Egwene in Fal Dara after Fain escapes, he meets Ingtar near the dungeons. Little clue there I suppose. Subtle too.
  2. I've reread the books 1-10 at least twice now and the last few once. I've been reading them for years and use to reread before each release. This is my first time to listen to them. What's your favourite little thing that you noticed, that made you go, 'hey!, that's connected to this later!'?
  3. Irish Gaelic too no? With regards to the Aiel.
  4. Maybe a of a spoiler here, if you haven't finished Gathering Storm. So stop if so Doing my first listen of the books on audiobook and I just noticed something I hadn't before. The Great Hunt, ch 5 I think. Moraine and Suiane discussing how if an amyrlin is stilled they must be kept on a servent becuase who could rally around someone who's cleaning dishes? Really nice foreshadowing for Egwene. It's unreal how much of that there is in the books. What's your favourite bit, that's not mine but it's my favourite so far in book 2 of my reread/first listen (skipped book 1)
  5. http://encyclopaedia-wot.org/main/biblio/collect.html That link has some information about your book. Nice book to have!
  6. Bye Luckers. This thread has stirred more of an emotional response in me than the ending of WoT.
  7. I said it earlier, only one book was needed but it maybe should of been a split book released simultaneously. The timeline was seriously messed up in these 3. Also: Bloody Nice to see flaming Uno being bloody back but his first flaming appearance was bloody flaming awful and bloody ashes but he flaming bloody overused the bloody flaming curses in his dialogue which was a bloody shame. His pov was much better than his flaming first appearance.

  9. Honestly, you are being less critical than it deserves IMO. My opinion of Brandon has literally fallen through the floor - not simply because I didn't like aMoL, but because within aMoL I found several portions to be very well written and very enjoyable to read. To me, it looks clearly as if he spent a lot of time on sections he was personally interested in and blatantly slapped down words on the paper simply to get through other sections. That is inexcusable for a professional. In the past, I had just assumed the guy didn't have the talent or skills to get the job done. Quite to the c
  10. I think the question that should be asked is why the book was split into 3? And why it was so rushed? I mean the majority of us have been reading the books for so long that a 2-3 year wait on the final book wouldn't be an issue. Anyone do a reread yet?
  11. Lol. Sanderson has a tendency for uber cool characters in fairness.
  12. Have to disagree. While the series got away from Jordan clearly during the tPoD-CoT(although the quality of the writing never suffered) swing KoD reversed it and he had things pointed in the right direction. There was an appaling amount of filler in these last three books and even larger structural problems. The books sped up do to where we were in the story arc more than anyting else and the same would have happened under Jordan. We will have no idea how good Brandon on this point until we see him at a similar spot to CoT in his own Stormlight archives. Agree with this. Someone on a foru
  13. Anyone else think that the 3 book split wasn't necessary and that it could have possibly been told in 1 massive book. Lets face it aMoL was stuffed with battle scenes which whilst being good got a bit boring after 400 pages or so. Dark Rand Arc and epiphany/Egwenes rise to the top Mat saves Moraine/Perrin battles Slayer Seanchan attack/black tower Field of Merrilor/ massively reduced 4 front battle Last Battle/rand v dark one Aftermath Could if been done in one book. Smaller font? 1400 page book split into 2 but simultaneously released. Also could have been worked on a lot more a
