    Lord of the Rings, and now Wheel of Time? I really hope it's high budget and they don't fuck this up.

    How are they going to do books 7-10, which are objectively terrible?

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    Come on now. We all love series where you get invested in a character and then not see them for 3000+ pages, right?....RIGHT?!

    i'm one of the few who enjoyed all the lengthy detours jordan made, not just in the middle books. will be hard for a tv show to condense into a series i think, but vaguely optimistic just because i'm already such a fan.

    Never thought about this until you said it but how many fewer books would there be if you only got the POV of Rand, Mat, and Perrin?
    4-5 fewer books?

    Cut out everything from Nynaeve or Egwene POV and very little of value would be lost.

    Every Aes Sedai not named Moraine was pretty bad.

    Idk about that, I never felt like the girls were portrayed in a bad light, per se. I think it was more Jordan having the same problem as so many authors in just not knowing how to write the opposite sex. It's been several years since my last reading though, so many there are some damning scenes I've forgotten.

    Yeah that's wouldn't cause an uproar with women, right?

    I am very hesitant about this whole thing. Jordan does also suck cocks at writing chicks.

    I have not finished the series. Stuck on Crossroads of Twilight. Realized 30 pages in that the prologue was 100 pages long and couldn't do it. I just couldn't.

    I actually don't mind Lord of Chaos, though I recognize that's where the trouble begins. My issue is how in A Crown of Swords the whole book goes relatively smoothly even though nothing really interesting happens, and then the ending just comes out of nowhere. Like he realized the book was ending and he hadn't actually paid off anything yet, so he crammed a final boss fight in the last few chapters and it was awful. Path of Daggers, awful. Winter's Heart, one cool sequence at the end that should have happened as early as Fires of Heaven, otherwise awful. Crossroads of Twilight, I may never know (though I assume awful).

    I used this website to help get me through some of the chapters I was falling asleep to. Also has a good visualization of what chapters focus on which characters. Was also nice to be able to have a link to a description of each character there as well. A Knife of Dreams picks the pace up a bit, but the last 3 that Brandon Sanderson helped write are really good.

    I finished at Winter's Heart. I read all these books in high school and that was the last one written at the time. I never felt the need to keep going once I stopped.

    I read every paragraph, fuck the haters. I also read every F. Herbert Dune book, so maybe I just enjoy eye bleeding ramblings.

    Also this show gun git real awkward when they try to shoehorn in a polygamist relationship.
