The wheel of time has become a slow drag. The next book is supposed to be terrible. Skipping to 11 and can't wait to get to Brandon Sanderson's books. He's great.
Last part of book very exciting. A lot of fluff in the initial portion, not the worst so far in series, but 2nd worst. Still the whole struggle to cleanse the taint from saidin was very cool as was matts adventure to try and save a bunch of folks from the sianchin. Too much lust nonsense for my liking. If one more woman falls for any of the tavieren boys from 2 rivers I may just puke a bit. I'm going to see the series to the end though. No hear Sanderson did really well on the last 3 books
Least favorite listen (Books 1-9)
250 plus "Chapters"
Numerous repeats in narration, each a minute or two in duration
Plethora of new characters- hard to keep track or determine allegience. Poor development of related plot lines.
