The Lord of The Rings thread made me think about this and i didnt want to derail the current conversation there. Any else into this series? i am not a fan of fantasy type novels, i mainly stick to non-fiction, but once i read the first 10 chapters of the first book i had to finish. That was 5 years ago. currently, i am on my third trip through the series and am about to start book 4...again. The 11th book is supposed to be out in October so i am re-reading to remember everything that happens. i would love to see a movie version of this done in the same quality as the LOTR movies. i can also see the movie version being about 100 hours long or more to do it justice. any other Jordan fans out there? i still havent read the prequel to the series yet. how does that book fare?
