Re: The Book thread.
I'm with Faraday. The prologue is great. It deals with Lews Therin Telamon and how he has the same power Rand will develop (there are other implications better left unsaid). Well it ends terribly for poor Lews in that prologue (and everyone else for that matter), so that's possible foreshadowing for how it will end with Rand. Either Rand saves the world, or he destroys it. That's the bottom line.
Wheel of Time is fantastic at its best, but really dull and plodding at its worst. Perhaps since the series is actually finished now, despite Jordan's death, it'll be easier for you to fight through the bad to get to the other side where it gets good again. I was reading them around when book 8 came out and there was no end in sight at all. That's the main reason I stopped.
