Review: Lord of Chaos – Robert Jordan

2012 The Wheel of Time re-reading Challenge

On the slopes of Shayol Ghul, the Myrddraal swords are forged, and the sky is not the sky of this world;

In Salidar the White Tower in exile prepares an embassy to Caemlyn, where Rand Al’Thor, the Dragon Reborn, holds the throne–and where an unexpected visitor may change the world….

In Emond’s Field, Perrin Goldeneyes, Lord of the Two Rivers, feels the pull of ta’veren to ta’veren and prepares to march….

Morgase of Caemlyn finds a most unexpected, and quite unwelcome, ally….And south lies Illian, where Sammael holds sway….
My thoughts:
Another long one, 1000 pages, book 6, well you get the general idea. So for this re-read review I will look at the characters.
Rand, honestly I always thought I had a crush on him, but so far nothing has stirred at this front. He is just crazy, laughing by himself and talking with Lews in his head. He is rather pompous too.
Mat, was this the book where I suddenly did not heart Mat anymore? I think so. He was rather pompous too.
Egwene, do I like her yet *laughs* No, and this is the book where she spends some time on Gawyn’s knee. She is just too nice.
Elayne, eh, little less I love Rand Please.
Nynaeve, now look at that, I am starting to like the braid tugging woman.
Perrin, How on earth did I think he was boring when I was a teen? He is a cutie!
Mazrim Taim, Grrrr, he has plans, I know it! (as I can’t remember anymore what will happen later on, LOL). Still I like him.
Galad, do you really need to ask? I HATE HIM. Down with the White Cloaks!!!!
Alanna, Grrrrr, that bitch. Unforgivable.
Logain, I wish he would do something soon..*hearts*
Min, and to think I found her dull too. I like her snappy comments.
Faile..I so do not understand women *Perrin, Mat and Rand agree*
Gawyn, That idiot has a stick up his behind. Do not trust the one rumor you hear. Arghhh, I want to ring his dang neck.
Not much about the Seanchan, but I can still put it here that I hate them, down with the Seanchan!
The Forsaken, I like bad guys. They are so evil.
Berelain, I think that I did not like her the first time around, but she is a maneater and I approve.
The Aes Sedai, idiots. All around.
Scared yet? Yes there are A LOT of characters in this series..a LOT.
Aviendha, truth be told I am pretty neutral but I just find her silly for going all, oh no! I can’t sleep with Rand again, he belongs to Elayne..uh, your people’s custom is to share a man. So what is the problem?
Tallanavor, ok so he is not around much, but he is a cutie!
Whitecloaks, they have to be mentioned again cos I despise them.
Awesome series!!!! 😀 Even if things move really..really..really slowly.

    I just finished book three again and am loving my upteenth trip through the books. I love Rand, but I must admit that Perrin has always been my biggest crush in the series.Berelain has always been one of my favorite female characters in the book.I like Egwene, Elayne, and Nynaeve when they are together, I think they are stronger then.Faile, I never do like her. Maybe I will this time around, but her attitude always annoys me.

    I remember the Perrin bits dragging as a teen but now I like them, freaky :)And of course I did not like maneater Berelain as a teen.And like you say, Faile's attitude, no thanks. Too jealous. Perrin deserves better
