Re: Robert Jordan Has Died

I thought that the first 5 or 6 Wheel of Time books were very good, with the first three or so being excellent. After Book 7, the series began to decline sharply and I stopped reading after book 8.

Despite that, I think having Brandon Sanderson writing the last book (or last three books now) was a brilliant decision. I'm a big fan of his from his Mistborn Trilogy.

And for those of you saying that breaking up the last book into three parts is just a money grab or something like that, you should really read this post on Sanderson's blog:

Brian Sanderson: Splitting A Memory of Light.

Before Jordan died, I honestly didn't know if, once he finished the series, I would go back and read the whole thing. But, as horrible as it is to say this, I'm much more likely to do so now that Sanderson is finishing it. This might be sacrilege or heresy to some people, but I honestly wish he could go back and rewrite the middle books as well.
