Do the Two Rivers folk reach Tar Valon before the end of Robert Jordan's <i>The Eye of the World</i>?

Asked by Job_Dung_Hill (12points) December 21st, 2007

I’m 500 pages in and they still seem to be a long ways off.

I think so, but my advice would be to not waste your time with this series. I read the first few books and threw up my hands somewhere around book four. I think he’s on book 8 or 9 by now, with no end in sight. This guy really needs to make an outline or something. There are a dozen fantasy authors who write better, more succinct books than Robert Jordan, who I just feel is milking the fantasy cash cow.

Sorry if there are any R.J. lovers out there, but I think his books mostly appeal to guys who love the idea of a saucy four-some with Min, Aviendha and Elayne, or the naughty descriptions of the low-cut dresses the women wear in the World of Dreams.

No, he finished the series and has passed away since then, though the final book hasnt been printed yet.

He didn’t finish the last book, but had an outline and some of the chapters done before he died. A new writer has been chosen by his widow to finish the series.

As for your question – do you really want to know?

I agree, the books are long and drawn out and the series does a super-stall around books 8 or 9, but (and I’m a straight lady) I still really like the series.
