Yer, I believe it was largely done anyway. Books 5-9 seemed like largely padding - WoT was the orginal series that got bloated from a trilogy idea by a writer, publisher and fans who enjoyed the world a little too much. He toured out here in Australia back around book 3 and said as much then - then culmanition was already set at book one - back then he believed the series wouldn't go past 5 books lol. view post

Yeah, me neither. But I have two friends who are devestated that he's gone. Someday I should pick the first one up and read it, see if I like it. RIP Robert Jordan view post

The first few are pretty good, then the middle ones are like 800 pages and a week passes by, and I haven't read the last two (they are on my list but I will have to start at the beginning again and there are so many good books out there and...) You get the picture. view post

Book 10 was so-so, but book 11 was fantastic. It's just terribly sad that he died before he could finish 12. I suspect leaving a grand project unfinished must be one of the worst things that could happen to an artist. view post
