About the Author

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.
Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.
Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

I love the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time series, at least what I have read of it so far. The content of the books will keep your imagination going wondering what will happen next. The prologues and first chapters are kind of scattered though. It takes a bit to get through the confusion and the rehash of the last book catching the reader up. While it works really well for someone just picking up a random book in the series, it makes the start of the book hard to muddle through as someone who has read the books before. I had issues with the print quality of some of the books; to much glue; the words were crooked for the first few chapters of one of the books. Overall I really enjoyed reading them.

The loss of Robert Jordan is a loss indeed. I began reading his books about 10 years ago - long before the Wheel of Time series became what it is. A friend turned me on to them and would buy each book as they came out so we could read them together. When my husband and I got together he showed me Terry Goodkind and I showed him Robert Jordan. I am proud to have this collection in my permanent library.

This series is one of the absolute best fantasy writing I have read since Tolkien. The intricacy of the plot, the well-developed and very interesting characters, the interaction of the characters within the plot, the entire world culture and politics, race and creeds , etc. Every bit of this series is impeccable in structure and detail. The tragic death of Mr Jordan in 2007 with the last book still to be written has left a huge void in the fantasy world of literature. Happily for the Wheel of Time readers, Brandon Sanderson has been given the immense challenge and honor to write this last volume, using the detailed notes left by Robert Jordan. I cannot recommend this series highly enough for those of you who love the sci-fi-fantasy genre.

This is another great series. I love how the character we meet keep coming back into the stories. Great fantasy series.

Robert Jordan has created a world that other fantasy writers are probably envious of. So detailed is this world, a vision (not the one seen on the cover) is imprinted on the readers mind to the point of being there. I was skeptical at first, I am not a fantasy reader by nature. I have read Lord of the Rings and thought it was a good story. This series is also good. It is well written with few if any typo's (come on editors do your job!!) The characters are strong and easily relatable. Yes the story does drag in some parts but you can always skip it if it's too daunting to read. This is a great series for people who like to read about war, battles, human relationships, fantasy. It has everything from growing up to magic, from fights between good and evil to simply surviving your own thoughts.

The best book series I have ever read. I love it! Robert Jordan has passed away and we are waiting for the final book in the series written by another author. Hope the last book is a great as the rest.
