I’m not a die hard reader. In fact, the last books I read are Harry Potter way back when the first books came out. A time ago, a friend of mine told me to try the WOT books, so I did. I can say that I really love the books so far. Now I’m at a point ( halfway Lord Of Chaos ) that I don’t open the book anymore. I don’t know why, but the love of reading is gone atm. Should I just continue reading in the hope that it all comes back? Or should I try a new book? If so, are there any suggestions? ...

So, we know from the later books that the Ogier have an artifact that allows the entire species to "translate" to another reality or another planet. This presumably helps answer the lingering questions about the Ogier with regards to the turning of the wheel... if Ogier exist and time is a cycle that includes our current world, why isn't there any evidence of Ogier in our world? Because they used the book to leave our universe sometime between the end of the series and now. We...

She is not brown souled She is not creator's bubble of good She is a time traveling fetus. That is that. Whose, I don't know yet. (Asoiaf cross over? Tyrion is that you?) Also Berelain's remark about how fast the marriage of Morgase and Tallanvor was "That escalated quickly" Lol'ed a lot at these last night so wanted to share. Wish I could make a wetlander humor pic post but sadly have no time. Also Perrin's cautions to egwene, THE EGWENE about TAR was another...

I will find the song, or another will find the song, but the song will be sung in this year or in another year. As it once was, so shall it be again, world without end. Tuatha'an Farewell I was saddened to read the end of the WoT and not get the opportunity to rejoice with the Tuatha'an when they found The Song. I was sure it would tie into the Last Battle somehow, as part of their greeting was "As it was, so shall it be, if we but remember, seek, and find." hinting that...

We all hope that the TV show will go the extra mile to make the magic feel real and accurate according to how we felt and imagined reading the books. The best portrayal that I've felt(or overall excellence) is in the movie King Arthur. I felt they did such a good job with making the magic visual and really enjoyed the scene where Arthur destroys a whole group of soldiers. Also the design of the evil uncle's "suit" reminded me of Ba'alzamon and could imagine him quite...

Hey everyone, I finished the series for the first time a few months ago. I've wanted a tattoo for a while (never gotten one), and WoT is the first thing that has really inspired me to actually get one. I was thinking about doing the standard kind of wheel of time on that I've seen a few times on here, but since it's my first tattoo, I want something that feels more unique to my experience of the story. One of my favorite sayings in the whole series is "Water and shade." I ...

Hey folks, so I got into Wheel of Time quite a few years ago and got through 6 (I believe, though it may have been 7) books before getting very busy and being unable to make time for them, as I was losing interest in a lot of the side plots at that time. I am really interested in getting back into the series, but still don't have a lot of time, and am very concerned that if I started a reread, I'd get slogged down at the same point and not have accomplished anything. Does anyone know of ...

Hey guys, I think this is my first post here on this sub. I've been reading WoT since spring and just started Book 5 recently (I'm not a fast reader). I really like it. And I really enjoy thinking about the world and what is going to happen, I like the fact that it it such a detailed & complex world. What I kind of miss is more graphics and stuff like that. Especially because I read on an e-reader, I don't get to see any good looking graphics, maps etc. - but I've seen and ...

So I’m going through the audiobooks and am starting the first book from Brandon Sanderson and the opening made me tear up. His recount of his experience growing up with WoT, the news of RJ’s passing, and how he plans to stay true to everything RJ intended and to us is so meaningful. I am excited to see how he writes and his depictions on everything, but am sad of RJ’s passing and how he couldn’t properly finish his epic. I hope he (and all of us as well) do RJ proud! Rest In Peace. Now to start ...

So there are definitely many references to ancient myths and to religious characters. Arthur Hawkwing being King Arthur Wolfbrothers being the werewolves of RJ's world Birgitte being based on well St. Brigitte A brief mention of Gilgamesh by Rand in ToM But my fav by far is Mat who is clearly a representation of Odin even to his choice of clothing 😊 I didn't catch all the details until after reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman but the details are there Mat hanging from Avendesora -...

Damn. I just read Gawyn's death (no spoilers past this scene please) and I had to come here and vent. He was probably near the bottom of my list for least favorite characters in the series but regardless of this I got so emotional during this scene. Siuan's death was just before this (also heart-wrenching) so maybe I didn't expect another major character this soon. Light! I actually need a breather... submitted by /u/Russian_Cabbage [link] [comments]

I’m pretty devastated at the loss in this chapter. I thought that Lanfear wouldn’t try anything major until a couple of books later. But I suppose she was a jealous one and Moiraine even saw this coming. I thought we would really Moiraine to the end of the series. Well anyway, just grieving over here I suppose lol. submitted by /u/ontheclockrightnow [link] [comments]

So I am about half way through Knife of Dreams, so please no spoilers on things that happen later in the book. I just got to the part where Rand is talking to Logain/Cadsuane/Min/etc. and it is mentioned that Min had a viewing that Alivia would help Rand die (page 395 in my book). I don't really remember this happening, so if someone could point me towards which book/page this happens in I would be very appreciative. submitted by /u/Flush535 [link] [comments]

I have read the series through before once and want to reread again. But I also just finished listening to Stormlight (I had read it but not listened to it) and found being brought through the story in audio form was incredible. I came here to ask if the journey through WOT in audio form is worth it or if I should just read through again. Sorry if I had to tag this No Spoilers, this is my first post. submitted by /u/cdog7736 [link] [comments]

Has there ever been mention of additional training once an accepted has been raised to the shawl? I assume there is ajah specific training since they all specialize in certain areas, but I don’t remember reading anything about it. submitted by /u/Firefight83 [link] [comments]

I liked this one a little less than The Gathering Storm, mainly because it felt like we were just waiting forever for things we knew were coming to happen. Perrin FINALLY accepts who he is, 13 books in. Mat FINALLY gets to the Tower of Ghenjei after taking every conceivable detour. And the ever worthless Trakand family FINALLY finds out Morgase is still alive. Side note, Gawyn is the worst. I'll decide after the next book, but I think he's my least favorite character in the series....

As you know, Ishamael was a philosopher who joined the forsaken. And his fall has always bothered me, not because of his despair induced fall, but the logic that caused it. It doesn't match with what we observe in the books Rather than power he joined because he believed that the DO's victory was inevitable. I am going to make the case that this is incorrect logically. 1) There are an infinite number of ages, both before an after the current one 2) If the DO wins, all of the ages are...
