I’ve been taking a break in my quest to reread The Wheel of Time as of late. I had to, otherwise I would have burned myself out, just like an inexperienced Aes Sedai may have done channelling too much of the One Power. I’ve finished book 5, and reading some non-Robert Jordan books in the meantime.
While The Wheel of Time remains my favourite fantasy series, it can become overwhelming if you try to read the fourteen massive tomes too quickly. There are just so many characters and plots that it is easy to get a bit lost. I am enjoying it, but now I’ve had a bit of a break, I’ve realised there is something that has been bugging me throughout the reread.
