2.0 out of 5 stars Where'd the magic go?, 26 Aug. 2007
after my epic adventure reading steadily through all Robert Jordan's heavy Wheel of Time books,i feel like i am now grinding to a halt.

All the Aes Sedai seem to just be milling around doing nothing, as does Perrin (who has lost all interest now his precious Faile has gone and is now spending ten pages moping)and Rand, who continues to annoy me in refusing to communicate to anyone save Min. the only interesting character is Mat, but it is hard to truly commit to a book when all his story lines get shoved aside to make room for pointless moaning.

Sorry, but this saga is growing far too long. i never thought i could possibly think this, as a fantasy storyline that seems to just keep going would be great for me, but it leaves the reader worn out and impatient. i don't see how robert jordan can possibly tie up all these loose strings in his tale to make a fantastic ending where everything comes to gether, but coming to the twelve book when new mysteries are still being unravelled is ridiculous. i hold great respect for mr. jordan to be able to keep all these threads running, but a fantastic finale clashing everything together in different ways is really what the Wheel of Time saga needs right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite saga - that is saying something, 19 Feb. 2007
wow. tad williams' brilliant ability to drag a reader into an utterly believable world is amazing, and i could read this saga again and again for days on end without getting bored. as i was reading this last entry for the 'memory, sorrow and thorn' books my mind was sinking as i reached the end. no! and it was over, all too soon. i had borrowed his books off a friend and as soon as i gave them back i didn't hesitate to secure myself copies of this amazing saga. each character is unique, special to the plot in no other way and every adventure included in these books was gripping, hilarious or (mainly) mysterious. the Dragonbone Chair was particularly infuriating to read as so much of it was filled with mystery and confusion. i would always yearn to hear from Simon's point of view again, as being the reader was like participating as this character in the book - being swept away by events and secrets no one understood. when the saga was finished, looking back at the first one, i would still be amazed by how Simon who we knew so well had changed into a man without realising. i adore these osten ard books and i implore you, tad williams, to write another book based on this world. it is completely enthralling and i am raiding all bookshelves for any more books you have written that i havent yet come across. if they are all like Green Angel Tower then i am sure my nose will be stuck in them soon enough!
