A buddy read with my Fantasy Addicts at BB&B! May the Wheel weave as the Wheel wills!!!

Amazing! More than amazing! Have I covered it all?... Yes, I have! I have run out of superlatives for this series and I do not care! The pacing of the story is very deceptively slow, but it builds on itself, fiber by fiber, and by the end of each book you find yourself holding your breath, barely able to take in air, because it is an energy outward transmutation of a million plot lines coming together and creating an explosion!!! And you would think there is nothing left to write about after this, but the series is barely getting to its middle... I am in Awe of Robert Jordan! How he weaves all those settings, cultures, characters, plot lines, and creates a world so real it is palpable, I can not even imagine! Little details, which seem negligible, characters you might have noticed mentioned in the first book showing up now or at times you least expect it, every pebble on the path to every following book is there with a purpose and you truly get the schizophrenic sense that you live in the Real World at the same time as you live in the world created by Robert Jordan... And despite the feeling of a split, you enjoy every moment of it and want more, and more, and more...

Now, don't get me wrong, Robert Jordan's world is not perfect, nor are the people and other creatures inhabiting it. We still follow mostly our five youths of The Two Rivers with the added from the first book constant companions, and they realy need to go to school on "How to communicate with the people I am closest to!", because they ALL SUCK AT COMMUNICATION!!! If they only stopped feeling sorry for themselves and start looking more on the big picture, things would be movie perfect. But, as most of us, they get stuck on the chicks or dudes they like-like, who is jealous of whom, power struggles, showing or not showing favors, love, guilt, shame, and fear... They feel real, flesh and blood, and are lovable, hated, or as annoying as anyone in our everyday life... The annoying thing does prevail at times, but it does give character to the books:):):)

As always, I will not get into the plots of the books, since it is both impossible and it would be so much more fun to find it on your own... I will say that it starts slow and ends with a sprint. I can not wait to see what happens in the next one, which I am about to start ASAP.

I wish you all Happy Reading and may reading expend your world and help you fly!!!
