    im up until book 8 of jordans.

    heres my synopsis:

    rand became a whining baby
    there is no more action, only political crap
    the forsaken are very very weak
    moraine isnt dead, but they havent brought her back yet...long overdue


    i loved his series overall, but the 8th was soo boring. im thinking of skipping it, but i havent heard anything good about the last three books.

    any suggestions?

    well...I've read nineth one...and there is tenth out...but, as I read it in Russian translation, and Russian translation is not ready yet...
    now...I've to agree with you...first books was better, but i've read a review recently about tenth books, they said, it's good...

    If I ever meet up with Robert Jordan I'm gonna punch him in the face. "Finish the freakin' story already!!!!" It was awsome until about book 6. From there he's just trying to write/read us to death.

    Terry Brooks is at the top of my list as is Tad Williams' Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn. David Eddings and Raymond E. Feist fill up the rest of my bookshelf.

    And I'm serious about Robert Jordan still..........I'm gonna kidnap him and make him GET TO THE POINT and finish the story. It's only been 14+ years now since he started the story.

    It may be a little cliché now because of all the hype...but I love Lord of the Rings. I'm currently re-reading it...probably for about the 20th time (no joke).

    There are also a bunch of other book published posthumously that relate to Middle Earth and LOTR.

    My favourite was The Curse of the Elderan.

    It is available for free on the net I believe.
