5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 31 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Towers Of Midnight: Book 13 of the Wheel of Time (Kindle Edition)
This was a hugely emotional and engaging read for me.

This series was in the wilderness for a while - books 7-11 were interesting but not captivating and the inevitable approach of the final battle seemed vague and distant. Not any more. Brandon Sanderson has masterfully set the series back on track for a nail biting conclusion.
The plot after a long time of stagnation picks up pace from the first page. There hardly seems enough space in the book to deal with all the rapidly progressing plot points. All the major characters get significant plot progression and by the end of the book Tarmon Gai'don is now imminent.

Brandon Sanderson has done and continues to do an excellent job caretaking the final books in the series. The style of writing is not mimicing Jordans but the characters dialogue and actions would not have seemed out of place compared to those of earlier books in the series. Anyone grumbling about his aproach to the series from a literary point of view really needs to look at the constraints he is working under and applaud him for his craft.

I actually felt like I was living in a dreamland divorced from reality while reading this - I was so focussed reading it. Theres been a good number of very good books this year - but In terms of rankig them for plot , emotional impact and construction this is without a doubt one of the best - if not the best book.
