Also look out for The Complete Wheel of Time Box Set, a box set containing all fifteen novels in this monumental series, presented in a sturdy box with a wood-finish effect. I guess it is the scope, the epicness of it all, I like the world, and the fact that there was this Age of Legends, I love the Rhand/Lewis Therin thing, I like the magic system, I like the Forsaken as bad-guys, I like Taveren and the fact that everything is connected and intertwined, I like Matt, Lan and Nynaeve after she stops tugging her braid. Love it. I started reading the series in 1994, when I was still in high school and fell in love with it at once. By the time I started reading, the first 6 books were already released, so to begin with it was just a matter of going to the library to get the next one. After that the waiting began. Not only for each new release, but also in the story itself, the pace became slower, and there were more parts that felt like "you had to get through it to get to the good stuff". He described himself as a "High Church" Episcopalian and received communion more than once a week. He lived with his wife Harriet McDougal, who works as a book editor (currently with Tor Books; she was also Jordan's editor) in a house built in 1797. Selected items are only available for delivery via the Royal Mail 48® service and other items are available for delivery using this service for a charge.I hate the bloody White Cloaks, a lot of the endless Perrin/Faile story, Nynaeve tugging her braid for the umpteenth time, the The Wheel of Time Box Set 4: Books 10-12 (Crossroads of Twilight, Knife of Dreams, The Gathering Storm) September update: finished series, was about 3/4 way through book 11 when I heard that Robert Jordan has passed away. Very sad, I suppose everyone leaves with things left undone but it seems particularly sad that RJ didn't get a chance to personally finish telling this story to all his many readers. I read that he left notes and outlines with his family so I guess it'll be up to them now.

When will this end?! I love long books...but this is too much! And things are getting muddled. The story is getting lost in the details... Who are these people?!! Like in any story, you fall in love with some characters more than others. Mr. Jordan is careful to give equal time to all his main characters and to develop their storylines fully. But I feel like the main story is getting sidelined... I find it hard to describe why I fell in love with this series, now close to 20 years ago. It has been part of my live for so long, that it will be strange when the last book finally will be released in 2013. He began chemotherapy treatment at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, in early April 2006. Jordan was enrolled in a study using the drug Revlimid just approved for multiple myeloma but not yet tested on primary amyloidosis.The Wheel of Time Box Set 5 includes volumes thirteen, fourteen and the prequel to Robert Jordan's internationally bestselling Wheel of Time series, one of the most influential and popular fantasy epics ever published - now a major TV series on Prime video. This one is a bit shorter. Is Mr. Jordan getting tired? As much as I love the millions of details, I'm getting exhausted... I heard about these series many years ago, way before I read "The Game of Thrones" (GoT). I figured as a writer, I should read "The Wheel of Time" as a great example of world development. I have a lot to learn... Yet, GoT HBO series was in some ways an improvement over the book -- the stories were tightened up; many characters were combined; unnecessary details removed altogether. I will NOT be reading the last book of GoT if it ever comes out... Responding to queries on the similarity of some of the concepts in his Wheel of Time books with Freemasonry concepts, Jordan admitted that he was a Freemason. However, "like his father and grandfather," he preferred not to advertise, possibly because of the negative propaganda against Freemasonry. In his own words, "no man in this country should feel in danger because of his beliefs."

So far I'm very happy with this series and it's made for a fun summer read - something to sink your teeth into so to speak... Yes, Jordan gets a little repetitive sometimes and I probably wouldn't have started this if I'd realized that the series isn't completely written yet (frustrated enough as I am with ASoIaF) but otherwise there are some great characters, ideas and twists and turns (for those into fantasy of course). I hate the awful 'van art' style covers - some of the worse I've seen. Okay, this is where I've invented the term Peril Loop -- a continuous series of bad events that happen to the main character in a story -- and Peril Loop Fatigue — how the reader feels when too many improbable bad events happen to the main character one after another in a continuous barrage of peril. Book 4 is where I almost stopped reading these series several times. Enough is enough!!!! Prepare to turn the Wheel of Time – discover the first three novels in one of the most influential and popular fantasy epics ever published, now in a stunning box set with striking new cover art.I want to start this review by being very explicit -- don't start unless you have the time to finish in one go (over many months). There is so much detail and so many characters (all sounding similar) that it would be difficult to get through without an online guide...or if you just give up caring. In this Age of myth and legend, the Wheel of Time turns. What was, what may be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. Jordan was born in Charleston, South Carolina. He served two tours in Vietnam (from 1968 to 1970) with the United States Army as a helicopter gunner. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. After returning from Vietnam he attended The Citadel where he received an undergraduate degree in physics. After graduating he was employed by the United States Navy as a nuclear engineer. He began writing in 1977. He was a history buff and enjoyed hunting, fishing, sailing, poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.

Aside from Book 4, this was the worst of the bunch -- too long; too many unnecessary plot points while the main plot points are left unresolved. I couldn't wait for this one to end. Some interesting bits, but overall a disappointment. Peril Loop Fatigue. Peril Loop Fatigue. Peril Loop Fatigue. After reading the first book, I felt committed to continuing. I was still enjoying the story. And for the first time, I noticed just how much "The Game of Thrones" and "Harry Potter" 'took' from this fantasy. The parallels were numerous and kept coming. I feel like "The Wheel of Time" is the true original. It is both deeper and wider than either of these other fantasy series. With a sturdy case printed with an impressive wood-finish effect, there is no better way for fans to present the entire Wheel of Time collection. The case contains all fifteen books in this monumental series by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson - the perfect collector's item for any dedicated fan.

Paperback

I love how detailed the world developed in this fantasy is. Everything seems motivated by deep time events. You get a sense of how customs and people changed based on historical events. This is far better than "The Game of Thrones." Robert Jordan must have a library-worth of notes... Unfortunately, I don't. On March 23, 2006, Jordan disclosed in a statement that he had been diagnosed with cardiac amyloidosis, and that with treatment, his median life expectancy was four years, though he said he intended to beat the statistics. He later posted on his Dragonmount blog to encourage his fans not to worry about him and that he intended to have a long and fully creative life. With a sturdy case printed with an impressive wood-finish effect, there is no better way for fans to present the entire Wheel of Time collection. The case contains all fifteen books in this monumental series by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson – the perfect collector’s item for any dedicated fan. Very interesting world, very well defined, with many nuances. I liked the characters. It was a bit long-winded, but enjoyable.
