Although so far the second book was my favorite, Robert Jordan has no problem with writing compelling novels that guarentee you will be buying the fourth afterwards. Save yourself some cash and purchase three at a time for free shipping!

In many ways this third volume of the Wheel of Time is a vast improvement over the first two books. The deepening of Perrin as a character and the development of the main female characters increases the plot depth of the series. Furthermore, Jordan's prose, specifically in the opening scenes of the book dealing with Perrin's wolf dreams, and Rand's struggle with sanity are exceptional.

Unfortunately Jordan has begun to entrench his annoying habit of falling back on superficial mannerisms instead of character expression. His characters seem to always react the same way to the same issues. Furthermore, the relationship between male and female characters is so juvenile and boring that I almost have to stop reading. (Luckily I am listening to this series on audio so the readers keep me moving!)

This book could have been a lot better, but as a whole it was more enjoyable than book two, the Great Hunt for the Horn.

The greatness of classical good versus evil fantasy has indeed been reborn in Jordan's lavishly brilliant world. His eye for detail and amazing skills bring his characters to life. The first two books have developed the characters and with this book, having developed the characters to the point that we care and understand them. Jordan sets them off in an epic of adventure, romance, and mystery. We find three seperate paths and watch as they slowly entwine at the end in a spectacular climax. Jordan puts us in the middle the action, we almost feel as though we are standing in the middle of the redstone columns and feel the power flowing through us as Rand grasps Callandor. Everytime I open up a Jordan book, I know I'm in for a good time. The pages hook you and slowly carry you until the explosion of events at the end and Jordan resolves all yet leaves much. I will definitely look forward to The Shadow Rising. So far The Wheel of Time is, in my opinion, undoubtedly, one of the standards and epitomes of fantasy.

Even though the Wheel of Time series is essentially supermarket pop fiction, I really enjoyed the first two books. The continent and its legends, plus the great story of seeing the Dragon Reborn, make the series a lot of fun. You're just drawn to pick up the next book because it's a world you want to return to.
That said, Robert Jordan is a frustrating writer who's capable of the most glaringly juvenile characterization and mannerisms in his writing. It can become very, very difficult to read someone who is utterly incapable of writing female characters. Half of The Dragon Reborn follows Nynaeve, Egwene, and Elayne, and their adventure at the White Tower (I'll avoid spoilers) as they progress to become Aes Sedai. This subplot really hurt the book, for me at least, keeping it from being anywhere near as good as the first two books.
The White Tower mystery was excruciating. The primary conflict comes from the girls being faced by an Aes Sedai who looks at them crossly and scolds them. The girls curtsy and scrape, then leave, only to be faced with another cold Aes Sedai who looks down on them. Repeat again and again, ad nauseum. The feeling of being flustered before someone with position or respectability is a common scene in the WoT books. It happens on almost every page. In the Great Hunt, at least, Jordan uses it well by having Rand stand up for himself, earning the reader's respect. But in this third book, it annoyed the hell out of me.
With Min gone, not a single woman in the White Tower was interesting. Is it just me? And the female characters the reader is stuck with have an annoying habit of "sniffing," as in "'Men are all fools,' she sniffed." I counted it used 23 times. 23 times!

For those of you who have yet to read the next installments, be warned, they get really slow and tiring. The first two were great, they followed Rand mainly and had lots of action and fights etc.
Now we get into more character development and even more character development. Most of the book I'd toss out, saving the scenes with Rand, though that would probably reduce the book by 300 pages, but a smaller book is better if it is more enjoyable.
At least this book still has some interesting parts, enough for me to recommend it.
**A book I would also recommend is The Unsuspecting Mage by Brian S. Pratt. This, the first installment of The Morcyth Saga is a great beginning for a new author. Battles, magic, gods, secret passages and intrigue, all the elements of a classic epic fantasy! Any fantasy reader will enjoy it.

Well Jordan has again made me go out and buy the next book in the series after I swore that I would take a break from the Wheel.
I enjoyed this just as much as the previous two, and it is too close to call which was the best so I will not trouble my self with superlitives. First and foremost Mat has really come along as a charcter. Obviously Mat has had some health troubles in the last two books, but now he has really come into his own as a character. What is best about his developement is that he is a more grown up version of the Mat we first met. There are no unusual changes or unexplicapble new demeanors. I was very impressed with Mat.
On the down side is Rand. I thought that everything Rand goes through makes sense, but it does not mean I have to like it. Rand is dealing with his gift and saidin the way Jordan tells you he should (I mean the way it was described men act who can channel). Rand is dealing with being the name sake of the book, and as I said, it fits, but I did miss the Rand's view point coming through.
A few more points:
a. The transitions between story lines is much easier to take.
b. Egwene and Nynaeve's (spelling)fighting is becoming a bit tiresome.
c. There are a few predictable parts (not horribly so).
d. With all the background info that Jordan gives, I there are few things I am not understanding about the foresaken and all that.
Absolutely keep going. You have gone this far, and this book if too good to give up on Jordan now.
