Product Description

Review

The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the . . . evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades, just as the experience of the First World War and its aftermath gave its imprint to J. R. R. Tolkien's work. (The New York Times on The Wheel of Time®)

By I. Mitchell on March 2 2014
Format: Hardcover
I started reading the Wheel of Time back in 1990, and gave up a couple of times along the way. Once I finally knew the last volume would be published, however, I re-read the earlier books and followed through to the end.

This final book is intense. Much as some of the books later in the series were justly criticized for the lack of events and little plot progress, A Memory of Light makes up for it with non-stop action throughout. The book essentially describes the "Last Battle" by alternating between various viewpoints at a rapid pace. Another criticism of the series has been that major characters all seem to survive no matter what they go through, but again this book makes up for it by killing off a lot of significant characters, some of which surprised me.

This isn't a perfect novel by any means. In particular there are a few characters (such as Mat) that don't come across the same in the books Brandon Sanderson finished off as in the earlier novels. A couple of events that were heavily foreshadowed also ended up a bit disappointing. However, overall it is a fitting end to the series and I pretty much couldn't put the book down over the last couple hundred pages except when I had to go for a walk to let out some tension; whatever else its faults the book really captured my attention. The series as a whole remains a remarkable achievement that paved the way for many of the new generation of fantasy authors.

A conclusion to the many, many volumes of the wheel of time. When Sanderson took over from Jordan there was a shift of style, things were slightly different but close enough to carry on with. But with this last book Sanderson has abruptly drifted further away from Jordan's style, either because of the imposition that this is the final book and things X, Y and Z must occur, or for some other reason. But what that left me with is the first book in the series that did not feel like the Wheel of Time, but had to be read in order to finish up. Not nearly as enjoyable as every other book that preceded it.

For myself at least. I haven't been reading this series as long as some, but it's been part of my life for more than 10 years, and while it clearly would have been better if written by RJ himself, I feel that Sanderson handled all three books--and this one in particularly--capably, and even improved some elements (such as pacing).

There are some loose ends I would have liked to have seen wrapped up, but that would have necessitated at least another book, and I'm happy with the finished product, very happy. I'm woman enough to admit I cried many, many times, and felt emotionally gutted at the deaths of characters I don't even like, because the story just draws me in so totally.

I was particularly happy to *finally* get into Logain's head--yes we finally get POV from Logain!--and watch him find his way to the glory and power Min foresaw. He's hands down my favorite character (well, ok tied with Verin), and I feel satisfied with the way his thread was woven in the the pattern.

It could have been better, sure, and some of the situations seemed a bit forced perhaps, but tying up such a massive series as this would have been difficult enough for RJ. For a man stepping into RJ's shoes, I think Sanderson did a great job, and I thank both men, and everyone else involved over the years in the creation of this series, because it has brought so much joy to my life, and inspires me to follow my dreams of writing and creating works others can enjoy too.

I enjoyed the last three books in the series particularly because they brought everything to a close. Brandon Sanderson brought the story back on track and seemed to return to the roots of the story. I was skeptical at first because Robert Jordan didn't complete the books, but I was extremely impressed by the way the last three were written, how the different strands of the story were tied off and how exciting they were.

Part of me wishes there were more books.

While I devoured every book before this one in the Wheel of Time series, I was very interested in how Brandon Sanderson would end the intriguing tale. While I hoped everyone would be in love/make up/become besties again, this doesn't happen. The ending to this series was done very well, Mr. Sanderson!

**PS: the grammar and sentence structure of this review is terrible. I will correct later. **

A satisfying conclusion to a series I began reading many years ago. An excellent job tying in so many elements to bring this epic journey to a close. No easy thing for another writer to tackle a task so challenging as finishing this massive tale with such a myriad of characters, events; all somehow connected at the end.
Well done Brandon!

I enjoyed the book and enjoyed the series. It was a big time commitment with the length and number of books, but worth it. I felt like I'd left an old friend behind when I finished them all.

Brandon Sanderson did a fantastic job finishing a series that has been near and dear to me for close to 2 decades. I can finally let go of Rand and all the other great characters from this series. What a great conclusion, bravo!
