Read 3 times. Last read October 14, 2009.

I have been reading Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series since 1998. I have read each book in the series at least twice. Now I am reading book numbers 9, 10 and 11 in anticipation of the release of book 12.

Book 9 and 10 slow down the story and Jordan continued his annoying habit of over describing everything - particularly women's cloths - in his book. He once put Jane Austen in his top five authors list, which is amazing since she never put anything in her books that didn't move the story forward. For instance, we know very little about what any of her characters looked like beyond the most general descriptions (Jane was prettier than Elizabeth).

Be that as it may, Jordan makes up for his writing sins in the imagination central to his story telling. His series still fascinates and captivates me and I can hardly wait to get my hands on Book 12.
