And men feel the same way about women, getting angry at not understanding them, at their ever changing ways So basically men and women in this book are caricaturized stereotypes of the real men and women.

The shadow rising

At the beginning I thought that would change, but 4 books in I find that it just wont. Which is a shame, since it hinders the reading of it, when you exhale in exaperation at how easily they would solve their problems if they didnbehave and treat the other gender as stereotypes.

I will finish the series, but I will never be comfortable with the way Jordan writes characters. Everything else is great.

This was my least favorite yet. I made it through however.

I still look forward to reading more WoT books yet. The beginning was straight pages of nothing happening. What's worse than the lack of events or anything for that matter, is that the author is literally writing that nothing seems to be happening. This book dragged BAD.

I tend to like slower pace and detail on the mundane sometimes, but even I'll admit this was not a great novel in any sense. Jordan breaks away from this bore fest of bad writing by throwing Trolloc raids where the story's at it's worst.

It seemed like the author got so caught up in his main character's story line that he forgot what was supposed to unfold in Min's and Siuan's part of the world. I actually think he forgot, but then just added it where he was randomly in the story anyway.

This story point of view seemed very un-concluded as well. Which was such a let down because I think this was the most gripping part of this novel.

I also didn't like when and where the author focused on each character's part. For example: The timing was bad. I don't know if the author lacked and editor, or a suggestive audience, or was rushed, or whatnot, but he seemed to make it out still writing after this.

I liked the time spent on the love plot. I always seem to think a bit more romance is needed in Fantasy, but this I think the author did well on. I only hope the remnants of what was good in this story will further unravel in future WoT books. Yes, you read that page total correctly; at pp.

After temporarily meeting up in the coast city of Tear, our merry band of adventures is scattered to various destinations: The problem with a series like the "Wheel of Time", with so far 14 volumes, each volume at least pages often over pages - the problem, I say, is that there are so many things going on, so many characters in so many locations, with so many new words to learn and people to remember, that it gets a bit more than a bit confusing. Each of the three or four divergent plot-lines in this volume alone would be enough for your average fantasy novel; trying to weave them all together into one overarching story is quite a challenge - for the author and, unfortunately, for the reader as well.

Don't get me wrong - Jordan has told a very enjoyable tale here; it just becomes so And to know that there are still at least ten more books rather large books to go before the entire plot is resolved, makes me question my ability to finish the series.

Another great book in the Wheel of Time series, it is becoming a little bit harder to keep track of characters as new ones are continuously introduced, but the journey is captivating nonetheless.

Book Four of 'The Wheel of Time'

Again, Jordan does not disappoint. Instead of gushing like a little kid about the language, the brilliant characterizations, the perfect amount of description not too much and not too little , the epic story itself I thought I'd mention a couple of things in this book specifically that are wonderfully done.

I've mentioned characterization and culture before, Jordan writes these effortlessly and brilliantly. Through this he explores power balances between the sexes in different cultures in amusing, thought provoking, eye rolling, and groaning brilliance.

The individual characterization shines through the women are not all the same; nor the men and cultural difference come out, but none of it is preachy. It just is. Another thing that really came out in this book is that there is no "right" perspective. He gives each character who narrates and many take their turns full shrift.

We see through that character's eyes, biases, ignorances, and mistakes included. Click here.
