Please no spoilers yet as I'm anxiously awaiting the 8th to arrive and purchase my copy.

Is it epic? Can't wait to find out what happens to myself at Tarwin's Gap.

On my way to pick it up at the post office right now. Can't believe after 20 years (since I started reading it, bit longer if you were there from the get go I believe) this series is finally over!

I am off work until Saturday, and fully plan to be a shut-in.    I love all of the characters, but Mat is by far my favorite.


Dovie'andi se tovya sagain!

 

Enjoy the books.

So I finished the book. I'm happy the series is over, and enjoyed the last book very much. I've been reading the series since '92 and it has been a long ride.

No spoilers, but I will say that I did shed a few tears during some of the scenes. I've read these books for so long many of the characters are like dear old friend. There are some sensitive moments that will tug your heartstrings. The battle descriptions are amazing as well, many times my heart was thumping just envisioning the battles as they unfolded.

One thing I did notice, you can tell when it was Brandon Sanderson writing a scene, and when it was Robert Jordon. I'm glad that the series was finished post-mortem, but I wish it was good ole RJ that finished the series. Overall, I was satisfied with the ending of an epic that has stretched over two decades. Very worth reading.

I just finished the book.

 

The story is cool, but there are so many bland moments. It seems to me that the author is just closing the loops. Hell the final battle last 1 paragraph. It's a real bummer of a disappointment to me.

 

I was expecting something a lot more spectacular. There was enough for 2 books well written there. It's a must read to finish the series but it seems to me to have been written in a rush and just finished.

 

I give it 5 out of 10.
