Hey all,I'm mainly a lurker on this board (as a matter of fact this is my first post) but I wanted to ask a question to all the sci-fi/fantasy readers/writers out there.A little background first. I'm a huge fan of fantasy, and I have been ever since I read this D&D book called The Legend of Huma by Richard Knaak. I read several other of his books before stumbling onto Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Wow.WoT has become a constant in my life since I was about 13 or 14 (I'm 22 now), and every time a new book comes out...on paperback (LBMM)...I snatch it up and read it.Anyways, I was just curious as to those who have read him, what do you "Aspiring Writers" or avid readers think of his work. I thought the first several books were outstanding. I've read Eye of the World three times! However, lately it just seems like the books have been too slowly progressing. But I really dig his immersive writing style, and he's a master at detailed story-telling. And sorry I haven't read Tolkien, although I mean to. College life has been rough lately, and was preventing me from reading much of anything.Also as an aside, for any Star Wars nerds out there like myself there's a new book out that's a bridge between Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones called The Approaching Storm written by Alan Dean Foster.BZ1
