    1. 1 undoubtedly better if series read in order complete I thought I read Wheel of Time long ago, remembered very long, but this mid series episode feels like an endless meandering conversation caught without beginning or end, soap opera with odd spellings of ooga booga scary words In the Prologue, the man who called himself Bors and no other less tedious name cringes, slumping to appear shorter and less assertive in front of sycophants nodding and arguing with, then overcome by, unheard instructio [...]




    2. The writing is good I could have enjoyed the book if we didn t keep meeting new characters whose only function seemed to be color The story dragged on a bit, as a result Unfortunately, you have to read the earlier books to appreciate this book.Who rates the appropriate ages of the readers This book is NOT suitable for age ten and up Maybe if you are looking at the vocabulary, only You might argue that a ten year old could read and understand the words It s a stretch.Even if you don t mind ten y [...]


    3. The Wheel is turning andFalse Dragons are coming forth The Real Dragon tries to remain hidden from mankind When two old time artifacts are stolen, Rand al Thor joins the hunt to return them along with two companions They must struggle against all sorts of magic and evil lifeforms The book is an early part of a much longer series.


    4. I liked this one and its essential to read if you want to get through the series It has its ups and downs I loved book one and three but this one I just liked Again Jordans detail is incredible however that is possibly where he started to drag this book down at parts.



    5. Very interesting story if very wordy I am not sure if it is necessary to read every thought of many of the characters.



    6. Al principio pens que era un libro de transici n, pero no El autor meti unos cuantos giros que me dejaron loco Con ganas de empezar el cuarto


    7. I had a lot of fun reading this book It had been a long time since I had read a fantasy book It was a challenge for me to keep all the people and creatures straight.
