Well, i've butchered myself half to death reading book 12, and i must say, it is well written, altho writing style is different from Jordans. Great book tho, thoroughly enjoyed it.

I knew it was coming up, did not realize it was last week. Will be walking to the bookstore to buy it on my lunch break today.

Like the husband said, I finished it in under 24 hours. I really, really enjoyed it, even though I was sad it wasn't Jordan bringing it to us. Finally, things are happening!

I wasn't happy with the Mat chapters, I thought Sanderson didn't get him right. Other than that, I thought he did a very good job.

I just finished last night. Not quite at the breakneck speed you accomplished.

I personally was quite happy with the book. I had heard people talking about the Mat sections... I saw them more as Mat maturing than Sanderson not properly capturing him.

Also, and I don't know if I ever thought of myself saying this... but the Egwene sections were my favorite parts.
