Re: What book are you currently reading?

Ah... but I have at least 2 hours of commute time a day to read. And we've pre-ordered 13 from the library so probably won't see it until December. But yeah... probably won't make it.

My wife is a big sci-fi/fantasy reader - she likes books where "stuff happens". This is one of her favourties so she's been bugging me to read it for a while.

Edit: A movie? Man. We must be at that point where huge fantasy epics must be attractive even if you end up locked into 3 or more movies. They are producing Song of Ice and Fire into a mini-series and The Dark Tower is going to be made into a combo of 3 movies and 3 mini-series.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

From the WoT series...hmm... this will be tough

#1 - Gathering Storm (because of the "wtf?" mindfucks at the end, and Rand's personality reversion)
#2 - Crossroads of Twilight
#3 - The Great Hunt (because of the fight at the end)

As for a comment about the movie: Hugo Weaving doesn't strike me as a "Lan" type. He's too fucking talkative in his roles and Lan, well, isn't. Viggo Mortensen or Liam Neeson would be a better Lan.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Right now I'm reading "Furies of Calderon" by Jim Butcher (same guy that wrote the Dresden Files). It's a pretty good series that I need to get the remaining 4 of (I own 1 and 2). Not quite as epic as WoT, but still pretty good.

Nerox, did you see the twist with Verin coming at all in the Gathering Storm? I had a feeling about her shortly after Jordan introduced her.

yep, i thought so as well. but the twist really caught me by surprise. and how she quit. admirable. that's one of the reasons why Gathering Storm is one of my favorite novels. plot twists, Rands personal change etc.

what i personally don't like, is the character of Egwene. i'd have to go into detail, but i see her making things not easy for Rand and the Ash'aman. and the Ash'aman are fucking awesome.

Yeah, the way she quit was quite admirable. I knew had a feeling about the twist and that she wasn't like the rest.

With her, I think she'll ease off once she bonds Gawyn and sees the change in Rand. He didn't exactly help much with her by his personality change until recently. Also, with the Asha'man situation, that's more Taim's doing than Rand. Rand's been off trying to unite the nations and Taim's been building his own army for some darker purpose.

I know Jordan confirmed it, but do you honestly think Sammael is dead? The others said that someone was impersonating him from inside the ways and he was last seen by the Waygate in Shadar Logoth. I'm not certain that Mashadar or the blast of Balefire caught him. I'm not convinced of anyone being dead unless they get hit in the chest by Balefire, aside from Asmodean (hopefully THAT will be cleared up in Towers of Midnight, as it's driving me nuts).

hm, may be right, but i don't like the whole way most of the Aes Sedai behave against the proper Ash'aman like those Rand trusts.
also a fucking interesting point is the Seanchan Empire. will Mat have any influence on tuon? can they make peace and fight of the dark one?

also, dude, a feeling is creeping up, that sammael is indeed taim. or even asmodean. maybe he is controlled by someone, like ishammael is now controlling Lanfear and the Moghedien(?).

question, a lot of open questions for book number 13. what's up with the tower of Genjai? with mat being my second favorite cahracter i am looking forward to this one. Dovie'andi se tovya sagain !

Most Aes Sedai are still unsure about Saidin being clean. It's difficult to break the fear from generations of men going insane because of the taint.

Quote:

In The Gathering Storm Tuon's already displayed affection towards Mat that would lead people to believe she doesn't view this as a political thing anymore. When she declared herself empress she was thinking of Mat. It was the actions of her adviser that lead to the strife with Rand. I think Tuon will try to get Mat to help broker peace with Rand now that they all know the last battle is nearing. And once they realize he's not batshit crazy now.

Quote:

Well, he's not Asmodean. His death was confirmed by Jordan in an interview, and during the meeting in Tel'aran'rhiod the Forsaken confirmed that he was dead.

As for being Sammael, Sammael's never been clever enough to go with impersonating someone else. Rand even confirms that Sammael's always been a head on fighter, he thinks in 1 direction. He obviously has connections with the Forsaken, as he used the phrase "let the Lord of Chaos rule", which the Forsake use almost exclusively.

Quote:

I don't think he's in a Mind Trap. He doesn't have that paranoid feel about him like Lanfear and Moghedien do, especially when Moridin (he's not Ishamael now) caresses the crystals. He's also holding to a pretty arrogant personality, showing that he doesn't have anyone controlling him.

Quote:

We'll figure out the Tower more in Towers of Midnight, as the title is a direct reference to it. Hopefully we'll see more of Slayer and figure out what the hell he's (they?) up to. He's still an unknown, even to the Forsaken. Though I have a feeling he'll end up fighting Perrin soon, since he's killing wolves and Perrin did wound him in the dream world.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

It's a really really good series. Just expect the first book to take a little time to pick up, as it's introducing a few characters at first.

yes, but they should believe it. if it wouldn't be, the last battle would be lost. although i liked when Rand bannished Cadsuane and went "hard as Cuellendiar.

yep, Mat already changed her. but she still has a the Travelling now. Rand will have a pretty hard bargain next time.

seems so, but still, Asmodean was pretty cool. some more infos about his death would be nice.

perhaps he is one of the dreadlords who will command the larger forces of trollocs and shades against the heros. like Katrina or Galina.

Moridin is Ishammael reborn by the Dark One. Or so i understood it. he still has the connection with Rand, which they made in Shadar Logoth with their Balefires.
