Coincidentally, I was just getting into my PoD reread when you started this thread, and I'm one of those people who look at you and say, "huh?" Not that you're "stupid," just that I don't get it. I...

A million points to rand. That's the best response to the "misogyny" critique I've yet to see. (Apologies to anyone else who may have said it, I've been away for awhile. You can have a million points...

Big Mysteries, Unanswered Questions

So I'm already up to ACoS on my reread. Yeah, I had three big(ish) questions on TGH then blew through everything else without noticing anything major. Oh sure, I've seen some "Hmmm, that's...

The more I think on it, the more I think the "confusion," so to speak, of Falme must come from competing agendas. Lanfear does brag that she's manipulating things when Ishy thinks he's pulling the...

TGH re-read: Why Falme?

I don't think I've ever had this thought before, but it's been nagging me since this latest reread.

What was the point of pushing Rand to Falme? Fain is obviously directing him there, but Ishy...

My lovely wife just sent me the FB press release for the Encyclopedia and my first thought was "meeeeehhhhhh." Was anyone else underwhelmed? I didn't see a page count, but from the press release it...

I don't think Lanfear would have ordered it. Partly because I don't see why she would care. The Dark Prophecy indicates she is somehow connected to Falme (about to make a post on that), and I don't...

On to TDR now, and it pushed me further into the idea Ishy via Slayer killed Barthanes. The brutality of killing Amico and Joyia matches with how Barthanes gets taken care of.
Moreover, I think it's...

I've never been able to like TGH that much; mainly for the reasons brought up here about what makes EotW so great. TGH doesn't flow nearly as well and we see the beginnings of RJ's going nuts with...

My problem with the theories I've read, and my own thinking on the subject, is that it seems to be the opposite of the Asmodean Nerd Rage War of Perpetual Doom. What kept that going was the strength...

TGH re-read: Barthanes

I feel like this is something which has Shirley been discussed ad nauseum, but if so I somehow missed it:

Who/what the heck killed Barthanes?!

I'm not sure what my first impressions were when I...

I suppose the distances would account for the time gone. Looking back at the map and remembering Vandene/Adeleas live on the Shienar/Arafel border.

TGH re-read: Moiraine's questions and answer

"And will you find your answers where you are going?" Vandene asked.
"I may already have found one I did not know I sought. I only hope I am not too late..."

To what is...

The Eye of the World re-read

I'm been away from the boards, and WoT in general, for a very, very long time. But that horrendous TV "pilot" episode inspired me to do a reread. I haven't cracked a WoT book since AMoL; both the...

We flagellated this deceased equine pretty soundly in the lead up to ToM. And I hate whoever came up with the idea first because it sounded so stupidly loony at first, but after ToM I'm even more...

Well, we've already seen it sizzling when he plays whack-a-mole with shadowspawn. Considering he named it Mjolnir, I was kinda hoping for some lightening and sparks.
