Woohoo. Might have to start reading the series again so Im all refreshed for when it FINALLY gets released!!

I can't wait.  I did a huge re-read from book one when the last book was released, so I'm ready to go.

It did slow down in the middle, but Brandon Sanderson really picked up the pace with his books.  He's doing a great job.

And for anyone needing some reading to fill in time while they're waiting, Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn books are easy entertaining reading.

Wow, finally some closure... I have re-read the series again, but am stuck on Winters Heart.

I think I got up to Winter's Heart then gave up. I've just cleaned out my bookshelves and I decided to get rid of all my WoT books. Maybe I should rethink...

Thank goodness.

I bought 'The Eye of the World' to read on a trip from Sydney to Perth to visit my boyfriend in 1995. He then started reading it so I kept sending the books over to him.

18 years later, that boyfriend and I have been married for 12 years and have two children. I wrote him an IOU for the final book at Christmas. It feels like this has been dragging.on for.freaking.ever.

PS: I gave up on them pre-kids tongue.gif

I gave up after book three. Many many years ago.

Brandon Sanderson is an ok author. I have read the mistborn trilogy.

However I didint realise at the time of reading he was a Mormon and there are heaps of religious overtones in his book.

And there serious lacking in sexual tension and 'spice'in the two main characters relationship.

Heaps of violence though lol.

He is also very anti gay and anti gay marriage.

Which might not bother some but I think he is an odd choice to finish of the books.

Oh goody, I'd run out of things to read again.

Hasn't Robert Jordan died? Who is writing them now if that's the case?

I gave up at about book nine or ten, maybe I should try again if there is actually and end in sight.

#17 TenYears

Posted 08 January 2013 - 10:00 AM

I can't wait!  Except that I'll have to because I can't get to a book store until tomorrow.  I can't believe it's finally going to end.

Brandon Sanderson has well and truly proven the wisdom of the choice over the last couple of books.  They've been much better than the last couple of Jordan books.

#18 FeralCrazyMum

I read the first five or so years and years ago and then gave up. Now it's actually finished I might start it again. That was the one with the yin/yang thing happening with magic, yes??

Same, can't get it till tomorrow at the earliest sad.gif
And totally agree, have really enjoyed the last couple of books that Sanderson has written.

I really need to get a copy asap, I'm hoping to have it finished before #3 gets here, and with DS and DD, I can't read as fast as I used to Tounge1.gif

I've been reading them since 1995...

I have my copy sitting on my desk in front of me.

Resisting reading the last chapter first to find out how it all ends is killing me. I feel like some sort of junkie, I'm having an adrenaline rush thinking about it.

Also gave up after book three - now I know there is an end I might try & read the rest before I die.....it might take that long!
