    I would vote in the poll if I could but but I cannot! /me still cannot use anything connected to java :(

    But the best book is Fires of Heaven closely followed by a Lord of Chaos, the worst is without doubt The Path of Daggers.

    Quite hard to say anything, as I think of it more like a series, not like a heap of different books. Overall probably Lord of Chaos was the neatest, with the founding of the Black Tower and that powerful ending. The worst might be the Dragon Reborn. The end was cool, but what happened in the rest of the book? Let me see... Oh yes, Rand walked through half the continent, with the others in pursuit, while the girls were scrubbing pots in the White Tower. Wasn't that exciting? As for book number ten... It isn't even in shops around here, so I doubt I'll read it in a while.

    The first two books were very good. Its been a really long time since I read them, so I wasn't sure which was actually better. I voted for Eye of the World because that's the one that tricked me into reading the series.

    After book two, I wasn't that impressed with any of them in total, though individual chapters in each book were pretty good. Deciding between book three (when the slide into boredom began) and book eight (where I finally gave up on the series), I ultimately voted with for book eight.
