Unlike the other books in this series, I found this one a bit too complicated to have to keep up with( without going back several times to make sure i was thinking of the correct character for the part bring narrated.) hope the next one clears it up( Usually it does.) I know i will regret the ending of this whole series!
nothing happens it's just filler. read the first and last two chapters. that is all you need. soooooo much filler.
It's all the womens stories and jordan was terrible at writing women
I feel like this was missing the last 30 chapters. This was a waste of a credit. I should have skipped this one and moved to the next book. Wow.
Not the best of the books. I'm sure it was necessary to push the over-all plot through. Things were slow for the main characters and, at points, there are so many minor characters involved that it's just hard to keep track.
That being said, I still enjoyed it and would suggest to a friend. The voice acting by Mike Kramer and Kate Reading only improves through the series.
Jordan can be both very enjoyable and very frustrating. He has a solid world he has developed and some of the characters are very complex but some of the characters(mainly women) are incredibly shallow. The men have grown out of being pansies it's time for the women to not want to spank?!?! Grown men and women who misbehave. Who actually boxes peoples ears anyway? Cadswain shows promise but the others character development needs to move quicker. This particular book is a protracted series of unfortunate events with very little payoff. I am deeply invested already and very interested in how Sanderson finishes the series as I feel he is a superior writer so I am going to keep slogging forward but if I was reading this and not doing the audio books I don't think I would make it.
Only the last third of this book is worthy of the series. I really hope the next book won't have so much fluff dialogue textural intrigue.
