    I kind of agree with Gnolyn about the female characters. As a matter of fact they became down right irritating. Every one of them actually continues to be an idiot teen throughout the books. I've read 5 or 6 of them and then I gave up. I, like many, did not like turning back the pages to figure out/remember what the hell these characters were refering to.

    It starts off real good and then peters off as it goes on. It's kind of like the feeling you would get if you didn't know that the Lord of the Rings movie was a 'trilogy'.The story is not over but the movie is.

    WoT is a good read. Just keep your expectations low and you will enjoy it more.

    Well I just finished with the first book... I liked it and am now on to the second one. Jordan seems to do a good job of making complex charictors. Only being on book two means I havent run into the name problems. Also the multi names for the dark one is realistic.... I'll quit rambleing now before I start sounding stupid

    I've read all the books exept the 9:th (heart of winter?), and i say it's one of the best fantasy stories i've ever read. i especially love the endings of the books (Dumai's wells really rocked!!) and the Asha'man.

    On the other hand the women are all alike (if the women would just work with Rand instead of against him he'd be ready for Tarmon'Gaidon already), and there is far to much political crap. But it's still the best fantasy I've ever read!

    I can't wait to get my hands on the next book!!!

    Ok, I have been on holiday so I had some time to read, I finished The Eye of the World and really liked it. Back in the Netherlands I bought The Great Hunt, I'm now at page 100 and still enjoy it.
