Absolutely one of my favorite fantasy series, but is it because it is good, or because I grew up with it?
The latter's absolutely true for me. I read the first book when I was a teenager, and I immersed myself in the world that Jordan created. For some reason the chapters that deal with Rand and Mat's journey to Caemlyn are among my favourite ones. Classic story of two characters bonding over a shared experience.
It's been years since I stopped reading (I think Path of Daggers was the last book I read), but I still intend to pick it all up again, probably when the final book is out.
