Re: What book are you currently reading?
As I said before, everyone has their own tastes. You don't like WoT, we get that. We don't care anymore. Stop trying to talk us out of reading a series that is ending next year and is very well written (contrary to what you think, RJ wouldn't have been nominated for several awards for his books if they weren't good). Again, we don't have YOUR tastes in books. You've even claimed you don't read much from the fantasy genre so you really don't have anything to compare.
I will agree that a lot of the writers in the fantasy genre are mediocre. But you have to realize that they take a lot of influence from Tolkien or Lovecraft. Of course other works will seem mediocre when compared to the legends.
