Despite this being the 6th book in the series the storyline & character development are still going strong. This book adds a few new twists but stays true to plot outlined in the earlier books. It's neither predictable nor disappointing.

One of Jordan's amazing atributes is the ability to whisk you away to another world. If you want to go. If you're not big into fantasy, you'll die reading these books, out of simple bordom. Personally, I love fantasy. When I started reading Wheel of Time, it was hard to read one, and unthinkable to read another after it--it burned me out, and I never thought I could re-read these books. I could re-read Lord of Chaos. Simply put, this book was the best of all the series up to this point. It's gotten some flack simply because people don't really have any taste. Robert Jordan only proves his worth with this book. This book is probably the largest of the entire series, but I'm not complaining--there's only more to enjoy.

From what I've seen from both series I would say they are both on par, because there were some things Tolkein did better than JOrdan, and vice versa. Tolkein was able to make a grand theme palatable to the human imagination, but at the same time that you could relate to the characters there were a good many things you couldn't. And having a song every five pages can lead to some dry reading. With Jordan, his characters have more human weaknesses, but you can truely feel a kinship with the characters. It's one of the few books I actually found myself talking to the characters (thought, mostly it was because I was pissed off at them for being stupid. You know, like humans tend to be about their own lives.) And Jordan's grammer is at times a bit tricky, whereas Tolkeins is flawless. They both are great reads in their own right. It demeans both series to try and figure out which was better. Just respect each series by its own merits, and stop bickering. There are better things to argue about than two authors.

"THERE ARE NO BEGININGS OR ENDINGS TO THE WHEEL OF TIME…But there is ¿N ENDING…& ¿LORD OF CHAOS?¿ is most definitely the best of the series, with it's build-up to ›¿THE GREATEST ENDING Of ANY BOOK I'VE READ!‹¿” "The books are nice and long but always enthralling.

For lights sake... do all of you little and weak minded fools need your mother and father to spoon feed you these books for you to understand them? I cant believe all you people are saying that Lord of Choasis a pointless and WORTHLESS book! You should be smacked. READ IT! If you dont understand it too friggin bad so stop reading it go back to childrens books. EVERYONE of these books has major points added to it so if you even say ONE is useless you might as well say that the very first book was worse then the paper that you wipe your crack with. These books are just as good, if not BETTER, like in my mind, then The Lord of the Rings. So if you arent swayed by morons who say these books are getting pointless read the series.

I have read many series including Shannara, Dragonlance Chronicles, The Lord of the Rings and so on and so forth. Lord of Chaos makes Wheel of Time the king of the 90's in fantasy. Lord of the Rings is the only fantasy series better but Tolkien is God. I recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy and don't mind reading something almost as long as War and Peace. The whole Wheel of Time series I give 5 stars but this book is the highpoint of the series so far.

Best book of the series

Topnotch voice performers Kate Reading and Michael Kramer give virtuoso readings for Book Six of Robert Jordan's phenomenally popular 'The Wheel of Time'series. Reading and Kramer have read all of the titles in this series, much to the pleasure of audio book fans. When a performer is a continuing part of a series he comes to 'own the roles,' so to speak. Thus, it is with Reading and Kramer. Their familiar voices are heard each time with shivers of excitement as listeners wonder what will happen next in the amazing fantasy world created by Jordan. With 'Lord of Chaos' we find Rand continuing in his battle against evil in the form of the Dark One. Initially we little suspected that Rand, the son of a farmer, was to become the Dragon Reborn and do battle for good. However, he has more than risen to the challenge but now he prepares for the Last Battle in which the Dark One must be destroyed or humankind lost. Listen, and be astounded by the machinations of Aes Sedai, a strange sisterhood and marvel at the plagues of weather that threaten to consume the land. Fantasy fans will find 'Lord Of Chaos' to be one more thoroughly enjoyable adventure into the mystical, magical world created by Robert Jordan.

I just finished reading Lord of Chaos and loved it! With each chapter you become more and more involved in the story line, and the lives and emotions of the characters. I don't want to ruin any parts of the book by mentioning any details, so I will just say that I would strongley suggest buying this book, and the rest of the series.

I started reading the Wheel of time series about 6-7 years with the "Dragon Reborn." I didn't really understand it because I WAS starting from book 3, but I did enjoy it nonetheless. Now 7 years later, I have started reading the series again from the beginning and I can safely say it's a hell of an awesome ride. The Lord of Chaos develops the characters and story even further and not to spoil anything, has a few suprises, both good and bad.

This book really draws you into the plot and brings you along for a ride that is enjoyable and thrilling. It is part of a series and you need to read the books before it to get the full effect of what is going on in the book. There is a little intro but the books before it really get you into what is going on in the book.

I understand why people complain about the length of these books, but personally, I enjoy the challenge of the length. I really liked all of the books in the series I've read so far. I think they are beautifully written and create a depth to the characters that some other books cannot compare to. The detail is wonderful and contributes to the overall picture you get when you read. This is especially true if you see the actions in your minds eye when you read. There could be a little less detail that contributes to the length but otherwise, they are very good.

Certainly not just 'Lord of Chaos,' but the entire Wheel of Time Series, contain some of the best fantasy literature on the market. Great reads, every one of them.

I really thought this book was good,along with the rest of the Wheel of Time Series, but some people really underestimate Tolkien (michaelanderson)He is a great author, and if you can't tell than you really are not much of a reviewer.I love the rest of the series and I hope Jordan keeps writing.

Out of all the books this one is mainly about the forsaken, and what they are doing to kill Rand. The good guys are secondary players in this book until pages 500-600. Then it gets interesting, Min finally gets to see Rand again, she hasn't seen him since the beginning of book three. The last part of the book is great, that is it's only redeeming factor.

This is a very good book, along with the rest of the series, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy/sceince-fiction. But to all these people who say The Wheel of Time is better than Tolkien, I must say you're wrong. I've read The Lord of the Rings many times before I started The Wheel of Time, and I think Jordan missed a few basics that Tolkien covered very well. In LOTR friendships, for example, are really strong. In The Wheel of Time, friendships seem to have decreased from the beginning. Rand, Mat, and Perrin aren't those three good friends they used to be. Egwene and Rand lost theur feelings for each other long ago. Nyneave and Elayne are bickering a lot. But, Perrin and Faile seem to love each other a lot. So, if you haven't read the Wheel of Time, you should. It's a great series, but I'm just saying to all those people who think it's better than Tolkien, it's not.

This book has been the best in the series yet. It has characters you love to hate, and at certain parts you will have your teeth knawing. Rand's love life becomes more hectic with Min, and the Aes Sedai have tried to bite him. They broke their teeth. Jordan continues a brilliant series, and this book is simply the best yet.

Simply amazing. Robert Jordan shows yet again that he only produces the best. Robert Jordan's epic emanates sheer power. Plot flows weave in and out around the main characters creating a world reminiscent of Tolkien's Middle Earth. Jordan shows his skill in character development again, with the most complex characters ever written. Rand al'Thor surpasses Ahab in complexity. Fans of the genre, fans of reading, fans of entertainment, why, anyone at all should read this book.

The most exciting of all the Wheel of Time novels, and easily one of the best fantasy novels of all time. The entire Wheel of Time world is so deep, complex, and believable that one feels he/she -knows- the characters. Not an easy feat.

Robert Jordan has done it again. He has masterfully put together another book to his spectacular series. There are some amazing new developements to the series and noone will regret reading this one. It's the best one yet. Five stars all the way.

The Lord of Chaos is one of the best books ever written, it goes deeper into the world of magic Jordan has created. It is filled with new exciting twists in the plot and involves new characters. If you've ever liked fantasy and don't mind 600-1000 page books, you need to read this series. This book, where Lan and Nyaneve meet up again is simply the best!! If you don't mind violence, love, twisting and intriguing plots, occasionally silly characters, and mixed messages, READ this book!

Robert Jordan weaves a web of intrigue and suspense in this world of magic and mayhem. The characters of this story have been wonderfully conceived, growing into real people as you read who you will both love and hate. Nations of people, whose cultures and traditions become so real you can imagine them in your own world. Definetely my favorite of all time, and it will make your best seller list too!
