The soap opera continues,
This review is from: Knife Of Dreams: Book 11 of the Wheel of Time (Hardcover)
Although better than its immediate predecessor where sub-plots proliferated, for the sake of sub-plots proliferating, the pace of the this series has slowed dramatically from from the early, more powerful books. The Knife of dreams finishes better than its starts as the early book seems to be space filling and is agnosingly slow. A couple of loose ends are tied up by the end, though the reader will again come away from the latest Wheel of Time episode wondering whether they will ever reach Taimon Gaidon. The fantasy world invented by Robert Jordan is one of the most comprehemsive and far-reaching of the genre. However, recent books have shown it evolving into a fantasy soap opera rather than the clasic it started out as.
