Re: What book are you currently reading?

Well, this is the rest of what I have with me at the moment.



Then I have another 4 books in the mail another 10 or so I need to check out from the library once I return the 10 I've already borrowed, then dunno what extra stuff I might get recommended by supervisor or stumble on along the way so add a few more on top. I plan on getting at least a decent grade for this dissertation.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Well, I could stack all the journals and articles that I read... but then a stack of .pdf's doesn't reach very high.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

"Homeland" Book 1 of the Dark Elf Trilogy by R. A. Salvatore


I need something to occupy myself until I find a job and can afford new books (like books 3-6 of the Codex: Alera series).

Now, finally.

There was no explanation as to why the Dark One granted her access to that. I also figured she was the one behind Asmodean's death, but I'd like to know how she did it instead of having a vague hint from Shaidar Haran.
I was really stoked about Graendal surviving and sacrificing another forsaken for her. And also how she did it, let Aran'gar's pet Aes'sedai weave the compulsion etc. But I thought she might be more of a pain in the ass for Perrin and so on. Her trap for Perrin and the Whitecloaks was kind of obsolete and well, being able to control Slayer to wreak havoc in Tel'aran'rhiod and not using him more...that was weak.

Definitly. I was really wondering where Jordan/Sanderson are going with his character. Some kind of Gollum theme? I am still puzzled, and hoping that it will all be resolved in 14.

Yeah, I would have liked more info on the things going on in the Black Tower. And it all points to a split in the Asha'man in the Last Battle as well. Good vs. Evil.

I know they can make gateways but with what she saw during her second trip through the pillars combined with her not knowing the grounds near that valley, I don't know how fast she'll get away from the Wise Ones to go get pregnant.
Didn't she already sleep with Rand? But no, that was too long ago. I am puzzled as well as in when Rand will knock her up. Perhaps the night before the Last Battle we will have a nice foursome scene.

Logain vs. Taim, I see it...But yes, where the fuck is that guy?

Rand vs. Taim would be overkill dude. Rand would kill him even shielded by all the Asha'man in the Tower. He has the True Power, and if Taim is not a forsaken, and only a mere dreadlord, I see no survival chance for him. Logain on the other hand, with Aes'sedai linked circles smashing Taim and his supporters, showing that combined power with the sisters is supperior to them, would make a lot of more sense. And it will be more awesome. Also, I think the dude who talked with the Red sister at the end of the book will bond her or the other way around and kick ass. And clearly, the other Aes Sedai are under some kind of compulsion.

Same here. Like I said before, even as a tool, he could have been much more dangerous. For example, Slayer would have just killed Egwene and the complete Tower in the fight.

Especially with the marriage arrangements for Perrin and Elayne's children set up in the bargain.
Rand will raise Manetheren I think. And with Elayne becoming the queen of Cairhrien as well, I see at least 2 new Old Kingdoms. The borderlands mybe reformed as well. But fuck it, what about the Seanchan Empire?

Damn yes. Nynaeve was the character I liked the least in the beginning and now she is one of my favorite female characters in the series. She and Lan will make bloody fine king and queen of Malkier.
And the delving is awesome. I see male and female channelers working together again after Rand gives Egwene a nice spanking and shows her that Saidin is cleansed.

I am struggling who of Mat and Perrin is my second favorite main character. Mat has awesome abilities and with his lost eye and spear and knowledge, I SAY FUCKING ODIN ! Fuck yeah.

FUCKING THOR ! But yeah the hammer scene was awesome. Perrin will create more power weapons, I can think of one for some of the fighters named more often, like Tallmanes (if he hasn't got one already) or Logain etc.

Yeah the battle was cool. And the best scene was when Perrin was there and she was like 'sorry Perrin, it is too dangerous here for you here in the Dream' and was about to restrain him. And he just shrugged of the restraints shook his gead and laughed at her. Damn that was awesome. But like I said, Slayer would have annihilated all the Aes Sedai in the Dream, just like that. I wonder why the Forsaken didn't use him to do that.

Another awesomeness, was the battle in this northern city, where Rand unleashed his fury on this enormous trolloc army. Fuck yeah.

Well, let's hope that all the questions will be answered with "A Memory of Light".
