15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Nov. 2 2010
Format: Hardcover
After twelve books of slow-moving, intricate plotting (and a hefty dose of filler), the Last Battle against the Dark One is here.

So is "Towers of Midnight" good? Oh yeah. Brandon Sanderson and the late Robert Jordan came up with a solid penultimate volume, sprinkled with solid characterization, epic moments, and the occasional discovery that will probably have you bouncing and screaming with joy. It's a rich, fast-moving experience that will leave you on edge for the grand finale.

And yes, thanks for asking -- it IS hard to review this without spoiling too much.

While the previous book was more centered on Rand and his inner turmoil, this one centers on Mat and Perrin -- there are countless intertwined subplots in this one, but the important ones rest on those two. Specifically, Mat has to grapple with the gholam at long last, and Perrin has to work out his issues as well as his wolfish other side.

Tarmon Gai'don is coming, and Jordan and Sanderson really hammer it home that this will not be an easy or quick battle. "Towers of Midnight" has a lot riding on it: not only does it have to build up to an epic grand finale in the next book, but it has to start wrapping up all the important storylines. Does it deliver?

For the most part, yes -- Sanderson doesn't quite capture a few of the characters' personalities (such as Mat), but overall this is a smashing book. Sanderson's vibrant juggernaut prose actually meshes very well with Jordan's intricate, slow-moving storylines. And despite Tarmon Gai'don looming over the characters' heads, there are actually some funny moments (mostly from Mat) and some powerful, riveting ones that seem to leap out from the pages.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A reader on Dec 2 2010
Format: Hardcover
Towers of Midnight is the penultimate book in the Wheel of Time and the second to be written by Brandon Sanderson after Robert Jordan's untimely death in 2007. Readers who liked the previous Sanderson-produced WOT volume, The Gathering Storm, will find plenty more of the same to love in ToM.

The action moves along at a good clip and many of the annoying character traits (braid-tugging, skirt-smoothing, sniffing,etc) are toned down or absent. Meanwhile a number of prophecies are resolved, almost at breakneck speed, and there is clearly a sense of momentum gathering in the runup to the final showdown between Rand and the Dark One. Jordan, unfortunately, fell madly love with his work and readers who spent years suffering in between lacklustre installments that hardly moved the plot along should be particularly relieved.

That said, there are some faults which need to be mentioned. From a technical standpoint, Sanderson is hardly the writer Jordan was. His prose drags; it's leaden, repetitive and often downright uninsipired, making for some particularly tedious and awkward passages. Check out the last scene in the prologue and the description of General Ituralde's battle for examples of what I mean.

Also, ToM is extremely Perrin-heavy because his arc was chronologically the farthest behind. Much of it involves dull, Rocky-like training montages set in the World of Dreams and most of the rest sees Perrin and his supporting cast sitting around talking. Some terrific new stuff does happen at the end, but getting there is a slog.

Meanwhile, Sanderson has Mat flirt with hot women - while telling himself that, as a married man, he's only checking them out for his friends - so often that it verges on parody.

I love the way Brandon Sanderson finished off the series. The last three books were great. I look forward to reading more of Brandon Sanderson's works.

I got this book for my son who has read the whole series. He really enjoys them and is saddened by Robert Jordan's death.

I can feel the momentum building towards the end, and characters that seemed slightly off in the last book (i.e. Mat) are back in full form. Highly recommended. If you started giving the series a pass, you owe it to yourself to get back in and see it to the end. Quite worth it!

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.

been awhile since I picked up this series...but I'm glad I did. Sanderson has done a good job bringing the story to a finish.

I have read the entire series through the years and I am very glad that Brandon Sanderson was able to complete it with Robert Jordan's ideas and notes.
I enjoyed the final book and it did a good job of concluding many of the sub-plots.
