My thoughts (No Spoilers at all):
  • Some of the language/wording will make you cringe as its just a tad awkward.
  • The overall pacing and storytelling elements are excellent despite that issue.
  • There's an entire subplot/POV I could have done without but I guess I get why they used it.
  • Its amazing how many hits and misses we had over the years of theorizing.
  • Its a lot of Brandon but its Brandon at his best for a good bit of it.
  • The epilogue was pure gold...worthy of the very best writing in the entire series.
+1.

I'd add theres one fight scene that I've been waiting years for, and it lived up to everything I'd hoped.

Man, I am so jealous of all of you, now. Hopefully the PX will have a copy, otherwise, I have to wait on Amazon.

One thing I kind of wonder is how many of those hits and misses in terms of guesses/theorizing are stuff that wasn't taken care of in the notes and Brandon had to reconstruct them from fan posts.

Probably a small number, but non-zero.

That'd be a good question to ask in the post-mortem, 1-2 years down the line.

As much as I enjoyed this book, and TRULY I did, the last scene of the book pissed me off severely. Without giving any spoilers I feel that there were characters that behaved in manners that did not fit them in any way.

Fantastic book, 9.99 out of 10. I am aware you can't satisfy every little thing for every single fan, but it grates me to no end
