1.0 out of 5 stars Slower and slower the Wheel turns....., 9 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Path Of Daggers : " Wheel Of Time " : Book 8 : (Hardcover)
This series started off so well- action, pace, adventure, it had it all! Now it looks as if the Wheel of Time will have turned full circle by the time the series ends! Path of Daggers continues the deteriation of this series from its excellent beginnings to the current below-boredom threshold. If only I'd never started reading the series and didn't want to get to the end (if there ever is one?).
A pity Rand doesn't even get into the story until half way through the book, and then achieves so little he may as well not even be in it.
A little less colourful description of the scenery and a lot more plot development in the next book may restore my faith that the books do actually have an end- come on Robert, you can do better than this- just go back and read the first two books in the series and you'll get my drift.
In summary, if you haven't started reading this series yet, now is not the time to start! Wait another 4,6,8,or ten years until its finished(?), then it might be worth reading the whole story in one go, otherwise you'll forget most of the point of the series by the time you get to the end.
P.S. Sorry if you read this Mr Jordan, but after all the hype in the build-up to this book (your best ever, you've been quoted as saying)it was such a terrible let-down. As my teachers used to say 'must try harder'.
