it was amazing
bookshelves: library-book, fiction

Like a fine chocolate, I finally wrapped up this series.

I've saved my reviews of many of the books because it was getting redundant. Robert Jordan over wrote and expounded upon everything and nothing all at once while letting the plot languish. Due to Jordan's death, Brandon Sanderson was brought in to wrap up the last book. That final three books ended up tying up so many plot points that it was too large to fit into one volume and it was split into, not two, but three books. I was worried that this was going to be dragged out and worn out, but Sanderson did a wonderful job taking Jordan's notes and finishing the series.

With everything resolving in the end like it did, it makes me wonder if Jordan himself could have finished this series if he had edited the unneeded bits from the previous books.
