Why did I stop?

I got an IM asking why I stopped discussing Path of Daggers a few months back.

The answer is this.

I actually got as far as chapter 8, but I couldn't bring myself to post a my thoughts on...

Chapter 5

Chapter 5 opens with the following.



Okay.

I suppose it's time to bring up something that I've been putting off until now. Why is Elayne doing this here? No, not on the hill; that part makes...

Chapter 4

Sorry, guys. Got a little busy prepping for a presentation I'm giving.
I will give credit where it's due. As I said in my discussion of chapter 2, Moridin's scene was excellent. As for chapter 4,...

Chapter 3

So, I had originally planned to analyze each chapter paragraph by paragraph. The motivation for doing this was the fact that when I talk about my problems with PoD, people often tell me that I should...

Chapter 2

The sheer length of the last post convinced me to re-evaluate how I'm going to do this.

Why do I mention the obvious? Well, because it's a case of try something, figure out why it doesn't work and...

As I said, I didn't intend to go past chapter 3 - mainly because I had fair use issues in mind - but honestly, I think that one is enough.

Chapter 1.

I'm going to be doing this in the style of SF-Debris. Why? Because I found myself sympathetic to his geek-rage while I read through this. Thus each chapter will feature a post chapter follow-up, and...

Seeker rereads Path of Daggers (Heaven Help Us All)

So a couple weeks ago, I reconnected with an old buddy of mine that I haven't seen since high school. (No, not Garak. Though he was a mutual friend of both myself and the other man in question).

Oh, I see. You're using the original ship in a bottle concept from ST TOS. Gotcha. I still don't think that would work for WoT, but you are using the term correctly. Pretty much every episode of a...

Perrin and Egwene on the run after SL is not a bottle episode. Because it's outside, which means it requires location scouting. Bottle episodes take place on established sets and use only the main...

You don't need bottle episodes in a WoT series. A bottle episode is not "a slow dialogue-heave episode that only has one or two sets."
