10 Days to Dragon*Con: The Wheel of Time

10 days 10 days 10 days 10 days.

Confession: I’ve been reading The Wheel of Time since last January.  I’m on the 10th book now, The Crossroads of Twilight.  I’m not really sure what to make of the series because I’ve hit that point where it is lagging and burdened by its details and Robert Jordan didn’t know how to edit and people didn’t want to edit a dying man’s words.  I know, that’s mean, but I do believe that that is why the books go downhill from book 7/8 onward.  The world is super rich and wonderful but man, the plot, it is just lagging now.

So evidently Brandon Sanderson, the ghostwriter type who took over after Robert Jordan died, is much better and the books have picked up with book 12.  But I’m not there yet, I’m on Book 10, forever and ever.

Maybe I’ll be on book 11, The Knife of Dreams, by the time I head down to Atlanta?  Maybe?  Brandon Sanderson is supposed to be there.  Good times.

So, yes, blah blah Rand al’Thor, Aes Sedai, blah blah, 10 DAYS!!!
