    Well, I'm part of the camp that enjoyed the Gathering Storm quite a bit more than ToM, but I guess it kind of depends on which viewpoints you like the best. I've always kind of disliked Perrin, and he really dominates the newest one. I guess Sanderson originally planned for them both to be a single book, but then he had to split them. Instead of just chopping it in half, he bunched two sets of viewpoint characters. This is fine, except you end up with some weird timeline issues that were really confusing until I realized what he'd done.

    Bleh, anyway, aside from that mini-review, it's worth reading. You gotta find out how this all ends, right? :P

    Cool. Not sure how far that is. Might me cheaper do it off amazon then. But if you do make the trip let me know in the next two weeks and I can go done there and check if they have it. Let me know before hand because after that I'll be moving to Evansville, IN.

    Huh. That's actually not to far off, in a relative sense: I live in Canton, Georgia. Most of the gaming stores around here that claim to be retro don't have any PC games, which is actually the problem at most gaming places here. I've seen two places that actually carried PC, and they only had a small selection containing three or four fairly new ones, WoW, Starcraft, and Diablo.

    Hm, I guess it's not something I'd noticed. It wouldn't incredibly surprising--he does tend to have an overly casual use of prose that bothers me sometimes. Especially with the Wheel O Time books--when you're expecting near purple-levels of prose, it can be pretty jarring. :P But dayum, I hope it was a paperback, lol.

    Thanks for the caution, I guess. I'm not trying to deliberately piss people off, but taking shit lying down doesn't really seem like a sensible way to integrate yourself into a community.

    I'm not the village idiot, the local troll, or whatever it is the rest of DLP might call me. And while your advice is appreciated, it's also misguided because I'm not instigating nor continuing arguments any more than any other member of the forums. I can deal with online rage just fine, I'm not exactly new to forums and backlash that unpopular opinions may cause.

    Thanks anyways.

    I think you should check out the second book, there is definitely a lot more tension to be had. You would probably enjoy it, considering they are trying to build a great nation. But beyond the second book I won't recc any more beyond that. They tend to get a little stale on conflict.

    TBH it was so long ago and sandwiched between so many books that all I can tell you is that the prose and dialogue were dull and dense and not at all descriptive.

    All the interesting moments, the battle at the end, the taking over of that girls body and the protagonists' going gray to help save her (notice how I can't remember anyone's name), all lacked the sort of tension that they should have had.

    I have a particular scene in mind but I need to go back and check it, and then I'll post the section I find bad.

    So I ate a sandwich, salami and entrails, with my daughter. She thought it looked tasty.
