Yeah.  I personally do not agree with the whole polygamous aspect to Rand.  But I feel the same way you guys do if Mr. Sanderson is writing the ending of RJ's series then it should be how RJ planned it and personal preferences should not come into effect.  I'm also a Min fan, I used to like Aviendha, but then she became irritating like Elayne.

I agree despite the fact that he is "shared" by three women he does seem more drawn to Min.  It almost seems like, he had phases where he  courted Elayne first, then courted Aviendha, but then he found Min and stayed with her.  Of course despite Elayne getting pregnant, it seemes like an almost, semi monogamous relationship.  Almost....

Mythwalker has 22 chapters. It has 3 races from lowest ranked to highest called Skaa, Eruntu, and Kkoloss. The Skaa are kind of like the Parshmen. The Kkoloss are the nobles. The main character (boy from a small town) is an Eruntu. Vvenna and Siri are Kkoloss who are cousins and look nearly identical. A thousand years ago, the dark god took over the world.

Wow, I'm seeing a lot of familiar concepts here.  Hmmmm.......

I agree with you on book 7 I feel was OK after you got through the first 300 or so pages (which is just outrageous) and thank you for the hope of book11,12 and 13.  Now I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel when I'm reading CoT.

the end of book 9 is epic in several senses.

That's makes me feel a glimmer of hope.  I'm just reading New Spring in between finishing The Path of Daggers and starting Winter's Heart.  Thank you for the hope.  I, unlike most of you here, actually liked The Path of Daggers.  I thought there was some really great stuff here, though it could definitely have had some stuff cut out.  I agree with all of you guys on perrin and Faile.  I like Perrin in books 1-4, but then he just got so whipped it wasn't even funny.  I would have much preferred more scenes from Maighidin (Morgase) and Tallanvor to portray life in his camp.  I like their PoV much better.  Also Elayne continues to grate on me.  But besides those facts and a few more I still really like The Path of Daggers, especially when there was the battle with the Seanchan I though that was amazing.  I'm looking forwards to reading book9 now.  Though book 10 sounds like it's going to be one of the books that you have to get through.  Kind like how the second half of book 6 was for me.

Thank you for the opinions.  A lot of what you guys have said is also what I have heard.  I've heard that she has gone down hill over time starting with the Soldier Son Trilogy.  So I'll just maybe start with the Farseer Trilogy and go from there.  Thank you so much!  Any more advice?

Hi, I have some questions about Robin Hobb. 

I have heard many things about Robin Hobb and have been considering reading her work for quite a while.  I have heard absolutely great things about some of her works and then terrible things about others.  It seems like her work is fairly controversial as far as how people enjoy it.  I would like to know your guys' opinions on this.  Which of her books are great?  Which of her book are less than great?  Where should I start with her books?  Content warning?  Anyways, thank you guys so much!

I do remember reading that.  It's been a while since I read the Fires of Heaven and Lord of Chaos.  I do believe she heard about it maybe when she was at that one large town in Gheldan when she was with the menagerie.  I could be wrong, of course.  But, overall despite my dislike of her character, she has made both good and made decisions and I do not believe she is the least qualified to rule a throne.

That is true I guess she did have to show her people her strength despite the adversity of her mother's "death" and all.

I agree with the argument that Elayne was justified in her actions to help find the Bowl of the Winds.  Of course Nynaeve, Mat and the other Aes Sedai could have done it themselves but it would make things much less interesting.  I personally don't like Elayne as a character she just comes a cross a bit whinny, of course the only female characters I really enjoy are Nynaeve, Aviendha, Min and Moiraine, but I do see that some of her actions were justified and she has a relatively good head on her shoulders.  I do not agree with her actions in tearing down all of Rand's banners, that was a bit of a slap to the face as if saying "thanks, but no thanks" or "I don't need you anymore."  I didn't feel like that demonstrated the social grace you guys are all talking about at all.  Especially since he had just saved her country from civil war and saved the Lion Throne for her. 

P.S  --  Mad_Scientist  to answer your question I believe she found out about Rand ruling Andor and "killing her mother" in LoC and she started her journey to Andor in PoD.

I change my mind the reflection of all physical things in the cognitive realm is a much better theory.  Hopefully some more of that is covered in SA 2.

So do you think that the spren are directly related to Shadesmar.  I don't know about you but they kind of reminded me about those floating glowing orbs that Shallan saw in the sea when she was in Shadesmar.  Does anyone else believe those could be a spren representation in Shadesmar?  Sorry that this is off topic.

That's really helpful, I understand much better now.  But, does soulcasting with a soulcaster work then?

Um...How does soulcasting exactly relate or manipulate Shadesmar?

Thank you so much for he help.  Though do any of you guys have any better understanding on Shadesmar or soulcasting because I'm still a bit foggy on those areas as well, probably because it's been a few months since I've read WoK.
