The final book in the epic (yes, epic, word count alone) Wheel of Time series is being released in January, 20 or so years after the publication of Eye of the World. I know a bunch of people ( Rogue...Jedi Jedi Ben SoloKnight timmoishere ) were talking about doing a reread of the series in the lead-up to the final. And I know a few more are reading it through the first time! This thread is to discuss what everyone thinks of the series as a whole, whether we're first-timers or seeing it through new eyes having read it before. Please be aware that some might not have read the series. Also, keep the AMoL spoilers to [Wheel of Time] A Memory of Light please. I started with New Spring (bad move) and am now 130 or so pages into Eye. It's kind of sureal seeing Rand and the others as so young an innocent. I just keep thinking, Spoiler In about 1,500 pages, he's going to be bat-**** crazy, and he's going to stay that way for about 10 books.
