really liked it
Read from September 08 to 10, 2011

Disorganised, cursed with some truly irritating characters, this is a book that earns back in moments what it spends most of its time handing away; there are a few points of catharsis so enjoyable that I forgive it almost everything. Though Robert Jordan clearly had some sort of serious paranoia issues about the fairer sex...
