Very proud that we fans can make this happen! And I am very proud(but hehe not egotistical) to be a real book lover!  

Congrats to all involved......one last achievement well deserved!

I registered just to reply to "Damer Flinn".

 

The vast majority felt that Sanderson did a great job.  It is fine if you disagree, but saying things like "no doubt" and "debacle" makes it clear that you feel that your opinion is fact.  It's not, and your opinion is the minority.

 

In regard to the "big epic last battle", that was not the norm for Sanderson.  He had to get help from tactitions and Team Jordan since he had never had to focus on war so strongly.  The notes left for Sanderson called for a lengthy battle, and if anything, he was held back by having to match up with the epilogue.  The epilogue that Jordan wrote!  Ending with Jordan's words made it impossible to give better closure.

 

If you wanted a better ending, Sanderson would have had to deviate from what Jordan wanted.  The blame is not on Sanderson.

 

Regardless I loved the book, but I did feel that the battle scenes could have been cut down somewhat.

 

And if you are going to reveal your teenage-level fanboyism, at least spell the name correctly.  It is Drizzt.

Awesome picture of Brandon and Harriet, at the midnight release I presume. Congratulations to everyone at Team Jordan!

To me I think our friend Damer forgets the purpose of reading: immersing ourselves in a book which nothing is to be decided by us, but by the writer and understanding why he chose to write how he writes. How WE want the book to end is, to me, not the correct way, but rather understanding how the WRITER ends the book.

 

And for him to not like the ending is respectable but since Brandon was doing what Robert wanted, it is only up to the reader to have enjoy his path. I am almost done the book 755 pages, and I will enjoy it no matter what! 

I would be upset if it didn't debut at #1

Damer's post was hidden because it contained spoilers.  Spoilers are to be kept off the front page until March, and off the forums until September unless they are in the AMOL Full Spoiler forum.

 

First offense is a warning, second is a temp. ban, and third is a permaban.

Fair enough.... Good job Team Jordan!!!! Love the book!!!!
Huge WOT fan. Military Vet. IN MY OPINION. AMOL was a debacle, and was sub par. Unsatisfying to say the least.
aMoL is a great end for a wonderful saga. Congrats to Brandon, Harriet and Team Jordan!

I do believe that this picture was from the Lexington signing.

Wow. Not to give anything away........I loved this book. Hands down the best in the series. I laughed, I cried, I got angry, my emotions ran the gambit here. Of everything I've read, I have never had a book effect me like this. I wept when I read the final words, knowing they were the final words.

I enjoyed this very well too! 

A wonderful achievement - thanks to Brandon, Harriet, and the rest of the team for finishing RJ's epic.
