The stories of the girls and how they develop. Plus another of the forsaken falls.
When Lan camp back.
They are great. Like them because both of them are always reading the whole series.
It had a few exciting parts and a few that made me cheer them on.
Very good story with a good narrator.
The story it self.
Very sad the series was unfinished by the Author.
Ok, I have to say I began really liking the story but, I am beginning to realize that he if didn't continue to describe every stitch of clothing each woman wears, like 10 times each, or how low cut their dresses are, or say "ageless face" (in fact I am going to count how many times in the next book!) or letting me know how every incidental character is doing besides getting to the story, I could go no and on... It took him a whole book to really accomplish nothing. This series could easily have been wrapped up in 5-6 books.
In each book he spends so much time describing useless details, and wraps up each book very quickly in the last few minutes, spending very little time on climatic scenes. Any way, going to try get through the series because I started it, but beginning to think I could get more out of reading the synopsis on Wikipedia
I have loved this series since the day it was first published. Even after picking it up again after 10 years, it still holds my interest. My only nit is with Kate Reading, she changes the pronunciations of names from book to book, sometimes I think there is a new character only to find out it is one that has been around after a few paragraphs have been read.
I have loved this book series for many years. It is a cult classic and a great sci fi fantasy series. I read everyday and I am now listening to the whole series again. I love this series and even the new book written by another author after Robert Jordan died.
I really enjoyed this book. I love both of the readers, they really get you involved in the story. There is so much going on and so much I enjoyed that it would take too long to explain. If you've come this far, you know there is no going back.
Jordan does a great job in this book developing the friendships among the main characters and also delves into each one individually. I like it. I do miss Rand as a young man, though, I liked that more innocent side of him in the story. I got a little confused with some of the many many added characters in this book, and some have very similar names (e.g. Caden, Cadsuain, etc). But I'm queing up number 8! can't wait to see how this all turns out.
This series was fun while it lasted. If you have a lot of time on your hands as I did commuting each day, its pleasant to get lost in a world that seems endless. But an endless fantasy has a way of...not ending. Thus it is with "A crown of swords". If you are at this point in the series you may very well know where it/this is going. No-where fast. I myself am getting a bit worn on the over-descriptive longwindedness of Mr Jordans "reader must know everything" form of writing. I dont think he gives us enough credit. Part of the work in fantasy and fiction writing is done quite well by the reader. The color palate, the lighting, the creases in an old book on a shelf, are all things I can deliver quite well on my own without guidance. Give us plot motion or give us another fantasy series.
Side note. "Blood and Bloody ashes" has got to go.
This series has been great
the readers are awesome
the only tough part is following all the characters sometimes
its very well writen IMHO
there are of course some oddities but thats usual for any writer
I love science fiction - especially about vampires, werewolves and the like. I'm almosts blind so I listen to all my books on Audible.
Robert Jordan has done it again. He is such a compelling writer and I just love to read or listen to his books. I can't wait until the FINAL book is out - hopefully in 2007.
