Went until I was reading about submissive women in collars every third paragraph and had to stop for a wank every half-hour.  This was particularly problematic on a six-hour flight to San Jose.

I love that series. It's my only weakness. Well, maybe. It's the only thing that turns me into a crazy fangirl.

I read them because my then-BF was a fanboi.

Broke up with him, never felt the need to keep reading the books.

The biggest problem with the Wheel of Time is that it sucks.

Here's why:

It reads like it was written by someone who was addicted to using a thesaurus.  When you're using 10/+ metaphors talking about fog in a meadow as the sun is rising in a four sentance paragraph, you need to set the thesaurus down and take a breather.

The other problem is it won't ever, ever end.

Read the first 20 pages and goit bored with Robert Jordan's tedious, overly-detailed style of writing.

i've been reading james joyce and robert e feist for the past couple years.

jordan writes soemwhere in between them, tho feist uses teh word "adroitly" far, far too often.


wheel of time is by far the msot original fantsy world i've ever read,a nd they're are so many characters. i foudn it dificult to get into at first, but after i had, i was addicted. i read teh 2nd book in the winter, then bought the first five books this summer. gobbled the first 5 books at a week each, then slowed down. all the varying factors in the book pretty much gurantee i'm gonna reread the series, cuz it's that good.

I've read up to the "Crossroads of Twilight" (which is the newest one).  I rather like them.  They do get a bit tedious, but it always picks back up.  The one thing I hate about them is the way he leaves a character in a cliff hanger position and then ends a chapter, and won't talk about that character for 100 pages.

And, they turn me into a screaming fanboi too!
