    For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights move­ment - which they were mostly absent from at the time. Long after pervasive racial discrimination ended, they kept pretending America was being run by the Klan and that liberals were black America’s only protectors. It took the O. J. Simpson verdict - the race-based acquittal of a spectacularly guilty black celebrity as blacks across America erupted in cheers - to shut down the white guilt bank.

    "One of her best yet!"

    As informative as anything you will read about politics, and filled with her usual wit and insight. Highly recommended!

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Mike Koch says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."
    "Sanderson does wonders with this junk heap series"

    Story

    This has been a horribly executed series from book 5 or so (before that it was just bad). Brandon Sanderson has done amazing things keeping such a bloated and diseased story on track and moving forward (GASP!) but in the end Sanderson's honesty and good character work against him. By this I mean he used the ending that Robert Jordan wrote instead of writing something GOOD (which he has proved over and over again he is capable of nothing less than EXCELLENCE). I would bet Jordan's widow made this impossible as she was putting her stamp of approval on every rambling waste of paper published under the WoT even if Brandon were inclined to go his own way (which as I said earlier his good character prevents).

    Overall: Meh
    Ending: About as bad as you would expect
    Upside: I was annoyed by this book WAY less than Jordan's ones
