The Wheel of Time Ends

Monday, September 17, 2007
So CNN.com is running the story today that fantasy writer Robert Jordan (not his real name) has died.

I started reading the Wheel of Time series back when I was a freshman in college - about ten years ago. Back then, there were only about six books in the series. I remember just charging through the books, despite the fact that they weighed in at roughly 1000 pages each. Fun times. However, there was a point - perhaps it was book six, perhaps it was book seven - where the plot was not at all advanced in the novel. The net result of 1000 pages of story was that everyone was more or less where they were to begin with.

This irritated me.

It was then that I lost interest in the series. I realized that there wasn't going to be an end to the series, and I knew - knew - that Robert Jordan was going to die before finishing the series. And, lo and behold, I was right.
