Re: The Wheel of Time

I did try to get into this series, but I don't think I even made it to the end of the third book...or was it the fourth? Honestly they all blur together for me so much I can't even remember what had happened by the time I lost interest. Part of the problem for me (and it's a peeve I have with several of these long running series fantasy books) is that it quickly becomes apparent that the author knows exactly how the last book is going to play out, could write it at any time but is determined to milk the story for all it's worth and for as long as possible. The thing with that is that by the end, all the drama, danger and urgency that was there at the beginning is long since spent and nothing can live up to all that build up.
