A Fantastic Book! ( advise you skip this review if you haven't read the book)

This was a great book. In the previous books, Jordan touched lightly on the relationship between Lan and Nynaeve. Finally, they have gotten married. I was also curious as to how things would fall out between Min and Rand and also Elayne and Avendia. This book reaches deeper into topics it had touched only lightly before. I have heard many complain that the time between the books is too long and I do agree, but I do ask one question. Can a man right a 900 page book, get it revised over and over again and get it all published in less than a year like everyone wants? Just a small question. :-)

This series has lost its shine and the plot veer too much into unnecessary side tracks, smoothing of skirts and inconsequential story about the yapping of the Aes Sedai or the Wise Ones. The entirety of the book could have been compressed into 2-3 chapters. The ending seems to be an after-thought (trust me, it's an anti-climate how Sammauel is taken care of) and yet again, the 3 female characters are a constant annoyance. I'm reading it to completion yet to see how Brandon completes the "plot". Sigh...

    Sucked in. More like Suckered.

    The series started out incredible until now. This book is the most over worded piece of garbage i've read in a long time. Its obvious that jordan had to fulfill a 12 book series so he had to stick as many words as possible to attain that. This book could have been awesome if he had cut it down to 6-700 pages. Thats how overworded this story is. And the next one is reading the same so far. I'm rather upset at this point and am questioning finishing the series. If i read nynaeve pull her braid one more time the only One Power is going to be my hand pushing the lever to flush this thing down the John.

    Elayne and Nayneave...the 2 stooges...

    This is down right bad. I ask one person to name one character they still have a connection with? That is right zip. Well you can still feel something for Mat but he is even bad to read. Elayne Tarkand is the stupid noble character that has to much arrogance and no brain cells. Jordan took it upon him self to make us loath the characters and have them ripped open till we can see how dull they are. Nyaneave is the character that is a farm mud-foot and never seen any of the world and considers all men to be useless and tools. Why isn¿t she Red Ajah? Her opinion of Lan¿who is also the dumbest and weakest character in the series¿.is to be her slave and move and hop when see wants. Yep that¿s the kind of women we need in our story to cheer on. Same goes for Elayne who cant wait to bond Rand and have him swear an oath of fealty and do what she wants. Yep the women are slave handlers. All the characters contradict themselves as the women are shocked and discombobulated when they learn Rand wants them to swear an oath instead. WOW. Not nice to be slaves eh. The story is about Rand killing Sammeal, and Elayne and Nayneave on another quest for the ring¿I mean bowl. What is this now the fourth book straight that these womean are on quests to save the world? Nothing new there. In the whole book summed up, Rand kills the forsaken, they find the bowl and a new surprise¿ten more forsaken are introduced¿yep the world of Jordan¿just keep on adding¿what about killing off Elayne and Nayneave? What about killing off the useless man called Perrin and his useless wife Faile? What about killing of Rand and having the biggest shocker ever? Now for that I would read a 1000 pages of dress descriptions and braid pulling¿¿Nayneave is angry¿what will she do????? OHH NO SHE PULLS THE BRAID!!!!¿ No wonder she has no brain cells¿Jordan you suck.
