if you've made it this far in the epic you owe it to yourself to finish the series. The ending was better than I hoped. having just finished it after reading it for the last 17 years i am sad the universe of the wheel of time is likely finished. I will reread the series again after I take a couple years to digest it, and I would recommend it to any high fantasy enthusiasts without a second thought.
Worth the journey (even Crossroads of twilight)
Gone are the chapters describing every decoration, food item, clothing, facial expression and the thoughts (plus analysis of thought) of everyone in a room. Each chapter is chalk full of wonderful plot twisting meat!
An epic tale with all your favorite characters (friend and foe alike) pitted against each other in one final battle.
If you are stuck in the middle of the series I encourage you to press on.
Just think, WWPD? (What would Parin do?)
I have read every wheel of time books and it is simply a masterpiece thriller that you have to experience at least once before you die. Such detail and suspense.

The wheel of time series began with a fantastic author; the story line was a little disorganized to begin with, but Robert Jordan knew how to drive the plot forward even if you didn't completely comprehend the full scope of things from the get go. Brandon Sanderson knew the order of remaining plot points, but even better he knew how to organize them. The characters that you fell in love with over the course of the series retain their humanity and are relatable up to the very end. Robert Jordan was an incredible voice behind the series; Brandon Sanderson had big shoes to fill. He not only filled them, but he improved upon the foundation of the series and made you fall back in love with the characters you knew so well before. I'm so thankful that he had his hand in the memory of light trilogy. I had a great respect for Robert Jordan, but now I have an even greater respect for Sanderson. Some artists can simply finish a piece of art that another person started, others can take over the art work and create something worth more. To say that Sanderson is talented at this; at knowing and delving into the human spirit is such a vast understatement. He reforged the series to a piece of artwork beyond any expectation I could have imagined possible. Bravo! I plan to read every book he has released.
Read it and take a spin on the wheel of time. Give yourself a month and listen to the entire series
