3.0 out of 5 stars Should I drop it here?, 4 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Winter's Heart: Book 9 of the Wheel of Time (Hardcover)
What can I say that has not already been said? i began reading this series by pure chance, the first book wasn't brilliant but had enough scope to make me buy the next. As the series went on however, the plots got thinner, the charachters more elusive and the descriptive text longer. I think that the charachters are excellent and each acts as you would expect them too, having gotten to know them. My main gripe about this series is, like has been said many times, that there is simply no action or real suspense to the novels which is a shame because so many oppertunities pop up to make this a true classic. I have also begun to absolutely detest the lengthy meanderings as Mr Jordan goes into great detail describing every colour, sound, smell and thought of every step or action at any given time, one character asks a question and it is answered two pages further on when you have forgotten what the question was. It is unfortunate that I am one of those people who has to finish a series once I have started it *sigh* but I doubt that Robert Jordan will be top of my christmas wish list in the future. I have certainly read much better, for example, Marc Alexanders Wells of Ythan series which only contains four books but more than makes up for it in gripping content. I could not put them down.
