3.0 out of 5 stars A Long Slow Road, 4 Jan 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Crossroads Of Twilight: Book 10 of the Wheel of Time (Hardcover)
Well, I am a big fan of WoT and have read and re-read the series several times. The standard of writing in Crossroads of Twilight is of Jordan's usual high quality with descriptions, characters, and places all vividly portrayed in his unique style.
However, while all of this is enjoyable, unfortuately nothing of note happens in this book. I mean, absolutely nothing. The one major event of the story occurs on the very last page, leaving the reader hanging in a dreary Empire Strikes Back kind of way.
I had heard rumors that Jordan planned on finishing the series in 12 books but if he keeps up at this pace, it will never end!
I will keep reading as long as Jordan keeps writing but we may all be old and gray by the time he ever gets round to gathering together all of the threads, old and new, he keeps weaving.

I met him once at signing in Glasgow many years ago, and remember him saying it would take 7 or 8 books to finish. I lost the will to read any more at book 7, still lots happening, but not seeming to lead anywhere. I loved the first few books and read them a few times. Should this series ever end (and only once it has ended) I might read it beginning to end.

Have you read them all/or going to read them all now the series has ended?
