5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best Wheel Of Time, 27 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Towers of Midnight: Book Thirteen of the Wheel of Time (Kindle Edition)
After plodding with difficulty through books 5-11, I did not know what to expect from this one. In book 12, we started to see some action, but book 13 is a whirlwind of action!!! Of course, we still have a fair account of the usual stubborn, self centered, sniffing, snorting women (the usual ones) but the action make them very forgettable. Strangely enough, I appreciate Nynaeve much more now. She is actually a great, caring woman. Oh yes, plenty of Perrin and plenty of Mat. Mat is back to his old self, I did not like what the author had made of him in the last book, a toy boy to a queen and an indecisive, confused puppy to these women rather than the loveable scoundrel with a golden heart he is. But in the Tower of Midnight, he shows a bravery and a self sacrifice to save someone he did not especially love in the past that makes him a true hero. There is a twist at the end, a character who is coming back and a surprise. I won't say more. Towers of Midnight made me forget about the long periods where nothing happened in the Wheel of Time, of all the boring chapters and of all of the pages I skipped. But the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills and no matter how much I moaned and complained about The Wheel of Time, it is a gripping series, and I was lucky to be able to read it with no interruption, but now that I have to wait, I am at loss at what to read next... Love it or hate it, in my case, love it and hate it (at times) Wheel of Time draws you into it and you cannot really escape.

p.s. about the style of the book, I have to say that Mr Sanderson has done a brilliant work at keeping Mr Jordan's style. It is not a mean feat and I will check out other books by Mr Sanderson.
