Oh please Mr Jordan....hurry up!,
By A Customer
This review is from: New Spring: A Wheel of Time Novel: A Wheel of Time Prequel (Hardcover)
This book is an ok read, but my appreciation of it was much soured by my annoyance at Mr Jordan's continued inability to bring this story to a close. At least the Leighs managed to finish what they started in the Belgariad before they returned to cash in on prequels.
What an author asks of us is a person's most precious asset, time. I feel robbed of mine, partly because I have to waste so much time re-reading his previous books and the special webistes, just so I can gather the many strings and threads of the plot again!
This book does not serve as a good intro for new WoT readers, it is suitable for those people who have read all TWELVE (eventual) books, who want to reminisce. I would recommend Robert Jordan to anyone...but not until 2007/2008 or whenever he finishes his series - at which point I will once again count him a great author.
I wish he could have taken a leaf from Tolkien and not publish his life's work until it is finished!
