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.
