it was amazing
Read in January, 2010

To be real honest, I actually think this is the best book of the series so far. Brandon Sanderson is a much better writer than Robert Jordan, and mind you I read all 11 books by Jordan so he's not THAT shabby! Harriet (Robert jordan's widow) picked the PERFECT writer to finish the series from Jordan's notes. He grew up with those books and is a huge fan boy of the series so he is ever so mindful to stay within the parameters of the world and the previous books in the series. He's paid a great deal of attention to be factually correct and to write more in Jordan's style than his own. But an alert reader who has also read Sanderson's work will see his style peek through from time to time.

I really like the whole series but I'm overly fond of 1,000 plus page books. It's a huge commitment to take this series on now, but one I still feel is worth the commitment. I think it will always be known as one of the great epic fantasies of all time.

I'll add more once I've finished!
