Sorry for the delay in setting up the thread. I'm proposing we read a book every two months (especially as some of the later books are chunksters!), unless people feel we should read a book a month.
I am all for 2 months on each book, if not three ! I am thoroughly enjoying this one but it is long. Is anybody else reading it so far?
I've just moved countries, so I'm still settling in. I have started the first chapter, though.
I'll have to free up some book commitments first.
Honestly, I wish they were all this good.
(I am about half through and headed for Caemlyn.)
Oh....did anybody find a place for this in TIOLI for July?
My thinking was one book every two months, but if everyone else is likely to finish The Eye of the World this month, we could do one a month, at least till the books get (even) larger.
I created TIOLI Challenge 21 so we could fit this in ;0)
Thoughts? Well, no, not really. I do love the world. I simply ignore the Tolkien rip-offs and the lack of characterization, which gets worse as we progress, I think. It's a great summer relaxer!
This is the first time I read this series and I really like it so far. (Gave the first book 4 1/2 stars) It gave me the same feeling I got the first time I read The Lord of the Rings. The sense of being dragged into a big and diverse fantasy world with a rich and deep history.
I do have some issues with how the magic seems to work. It seems so powerful and yet it doesn't seem to put too much strain on the wielder (unless he/she loses). I also struggle a bit with how the Trollocs are described. The diversity makes it hard for me to make a clear picture in my head of how they look as some have beaks and feathers, others have fur and muzzles. And who got the feet, and what about the hooves?.. Or the ram horns??
Does anybody else have these issues or am I just being silly?
I'm reading the third book, and I swear if Nynaeve pulls her braid one more time, I'm going to hurt somebody or something.
Lizzie, I have bad news for you ...
Still enjoying the story. Especially the worldbuilding, digging through layers of layers of culture and history. Not to invested in Rands part of the story, but fortunately I find that the other characters like Mat and Perrin more than makes up for it.
