Robert Jordan-The Wheel Of Time?

Sun Apr 14, 2002 11:43 am

Anyone out here a Robert Jordan fan?

I'm not really into Fantasy, but have read all the Harry Potters. I saw the books at Barnes and Noble today. Although I had never heard of them, I could tell by the display he has a solid niche following.

Anyone read the series? Is it worth buying and starting the first book?

Deltaflyertoo-

Sorry for my ignorance-- are you referring to Robert Jordan, the main character in "For Whom the Bell Tolls", or someone else?

I'm referring to the author Robert Jordan who has written a series of 10 or more books under the title "The Wheel of Time" Series.

Ahh, I see. Can't help you there, but I did write my senior paper on "For Whom the Bell Tolls", which is why I made the original Jordan inquiry.

I'm on book six right now. I'm not a big fantasy fan but go tired of reading my Tom Clancy novels six times. So a buddy of mine sent me in Robert Jordan's direction. So far I have loved the series, it is quite good with a big assortment of characters. Be warned though that the novels start to get quite big so you will find yourself up until the wee hours reading just to "finish one more chapter"

They're a great series...have been reading them for years. I think I'm finally caught up to the current book, but can't seem to find it...(damn all this changing apartments  Angry )
It's incredibly in-depth and engrosing though. He really weaves a great tale, although at some times the plots are so dense that you almost have to take notes to figure it all out. I'd highly reccomend it. It is quite a bit more mature than Harry Potter though, and when you start taking into account the cultural and religious imagery involved it gets quite interesting...

And, yes, they are BIG books and you'll stay up waaaay too late just trying to get "one more chapter!"

regards,
Tom
