Not much of a fan of Perrin's plotline post Dumai's Wells either - although the Slayer confrontation was pretty awesome.

I think in both cases that it is RJ's flawed ability to effectively write out gender wars from the female perspective. Nynaeve, Elayne, Tuon, Faile, Berelain and all the secondary women around them (with very few exceptions...Birgitte, for example) are mindnumbingly annoying in their trite, stereotypical male-bashing characterization. Blech.

And I start CoS tomorrow.
