neongoats: swahnhennessy: Worst crap I've ever read. It embarrasses me to admit I even know the material, let alone read 5 of the books after having gone through the first one in county jail, where options were limited. I'm the type of guy who likes to finish what he started, and have read some horrible books because of that, but that's still no excuse for me to have made it so far in that series.I don't know which direction to take in flaming you over this, so I'm just going to point and laugh at you for being a jailbird.
YouWinAgainGravity: I've read a lot of the spoilers and if you've been waiting years and years for this book and the ending let me just say, prepare to be disappointed.
aerojockey: all of it to tell the story of a backcountry farm boy who finds out he's the Dragon Reborn, a hero out of prophecies, destined to defeat the Dark One - and probably die doing it.Really, that's what Wheet of Time is about? How original.

had98c: I can't skip Tanchico cause Moghedien is my favorite character. I'm probably the only person that has her as a favorite but there it is.
Kome: Started reading the series in 9th grade, about 13 years ago. Since then, I read the entire series (at least, what's available) about once a year. On the whole it's damn good, even if there are some serious bad spots that are like a chore to get through.
Handsome B. Wonderful: 2000 characters. 1500 of them Aes Sedai. 1000 of them who have a name that starts with M.
had98c: Some of the stuff in these books really point to the series being a kinky sexual fantasy outlet for RJ. Examples include women controlling other women via a collar and chain, overt lesbianism in school (pillow friends in the Tower, especially with Novices/Apprentices), an arch enemy that kills people by overloading them with feelings of sexual pleasure, a main character that openly declares his love for three women at the same time AND THEY'RE ALL COOL WITH IT.Besides all that nonsense, it's a pretty good story overall.
Blues_X: Smeggy Smurf: Spoiler alert:sniff, tug braid, smooth dress, sniffYou left out "boys and girls just don't understand each other!"
ModernLuddite: This is why my wife and I have instituted the "don't start reading a series until it's over" rule.//I want to read "A Game of Thrones" so bad.///BUT NO.
