I haven't found this anywhere on Dragonmount yet, so I'll share it here. There is some new casting news that I saw in various places around the internet, but the most trustworthy place I saw was an article about it by Adam aka Werthead on his blog (if Adam covers it, I tend to trust it, I've been familiar with him for a long long long time, going back to my RAFO and probably even my wotmania days). It appears that we have Mat Cauthon's parents, as well as a new character with the last name Aybara. Who exactly this new character is... well, that's unclear, and potentially controversial (at least some of the sources I've seen talking about it have called it thus, personally I'm fine with this potential change... I think).
Always to me Perrin’s actions during the middle books were just...boring. I stopped really caring about his problems after the first book about his rescuing of Faile. He was singly focused, and completely tunnel visioned on his quest (and when the quest is mostly uninspiring that’s not great story material). Now it didn't quite dawn on me until I was re-reading the final three books that Perrins single focus mind set is one of his key traits. It’s one of his key struggles in ToM, finding the balance in himself. Now Perrin does come to terms with himself and in my eyes completely redeems himself over the last few books. So that got me thinking, was Perrin’s boring stretches through the middle intentionally boring? Were we as an audience not supposed to like this Perrin because of his tunnel vision? Is this an intentionally boring character because that’s who he is in the books? Thoughts or questions about my theory?
Hello i'm re-reading the series after finishing it ~2 years ago and i'm halfway through the great hunt, problem is i'm sure i remember a scene in one of the books(i think the 1st) where the 3 Ta'veren are fishing from a river and are proud of their small catch only for Moirine to use the one power to pull several straight out of the water amazing the boys. problem is I've just finished the 1st book again and there's nowhere this could have happened as they are always on the run until they separate & I can't see the boys being amazed by this after the 1st book especially as Rand is channeling by the end of tEotW I know its not a big issue but its doing my head in, if anyone can help or remember the scene i'm thinking of that would be a great help (pic unrelated - Battle of the Tarendrelle)
