Lord of Chaos – blast review

Lord of Chaos (Wheel of Time, #6)Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Wow – it only took us five months to finish this one.
The densest book in the Wheel, and I think that’s an objective statement. Lots of events to keep track of, but not really more than normal. The pace is much slower than the other books that precede it in the series, but I don’t find it any less well-written than its predecessors. Perrin, Mat, and Rand are still playing their personalities. Mat is still one of the funniest people in the series, and Perrin is still no-nonsense. I still cannot figure out what to make of Rand in terms of character. He is the most directionally stable, but without a real identity of his own.

Strong book; I’ll say that. Not the absolute best in my opinion, but still a very strong book and addition to the story.
