The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan

About to finish this book tonight and I've enjoyed it much more than the first book. While the first book was good, but nothing special, this one just felt a lot more solid and focused.

This book has made me want to continue the series more than book 1 did for sure.

This week I tried a little bit of japanese litterature. I read

The Setting Sun, by Osamu Dazai It's about the feeling of loss and alientation in a society that evolve really fast and it can still be relevant today.

I also started And Then, by Natsume Sôseki which has similar theme with setting sun. It's about an aristocrat who does not fit in society at all.

On the side I am still reading the wheel of time when I want something lighter. I am at the second book The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan and it is still a lot of fun even if it doesn't really blow my mind.

This week I finished The Bear and the Nightingale, by Katherine Arden. I really liked the book. At first I found the pacing a bit slow, but once I kept on reading I was hooked and I finished the last half of the book in a day! This week I started reading The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan. I finished the first book about a year ago and figured it was about time I continued reading the series because I really liked the first book!

Started reading The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan. It took me a month to finish the first one but I ended up loving it so I decided to continue. Went with a paperback this time because it was cheaper and I was surprised to see a copy in my local bookstore. It feels different but I like it although I won't be reading with an audiobook this time.

The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan

I started book two in the twelve-part Wheel of Time series. Great fantasy writing. Easy to read and lose yourself in. I've heard the series gets a bit dry in the middle, so we'll see how far I get.

Finished: The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan. A re-read - I read it originally when it first came out. I know I'm getting into a big slog through the middle, but I've waited long enough - I want to try and read the whole series. I found the first two quite good.

Also finished Men at Arms, by Terry Pratchett. It's not my favorite storyline, (I'm on Team Witch) but there are definitely a bunch of delicious parts, and it was a lot of fun.

Also finished Gilded Latten Bones, by Glen Cook. Really a fun fantasy noir series - this is book 13 of 14, and it's been pretty consistently good.

I haven't quit started it yet, but I did start carrying around The Dragon Reborn, by Robert Jordan.

I finished The Eye of the World last week and started The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan.

I love how much the pacing changes in book 2. It really feels like Jordan finds his flow and starts to develop all the main characters simultaneously.

I'm nearly finished The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan and the entire book has been incredibly fun and entertaining. Good thing it's part of an absolutely massive series or I'd be super upset to say goodbye to these characters!

Once I'm finished I'll start reading Circe, by Madeline Miller which I just took out of the library today.

The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan

I finished book two in the Wheel of Time series. It picked up right where book one left off and the story became even more creative and engaging. I had a hard time putting this one down, reading much more per sitting than the previous one. I am pleasantly surprised to say that, as of the last quarter of the book or so, Nynaeve is no longer my least favorite character! I have book three already, but I'm debating reading something more serious next before jumping back into the series...

Caveats pointed out in Still Drinking's review of reading The Wheel of Time at 38 still apply, for example:

  • the incessant ranking of every single female character’s approximate attractiveness gets old halfway through the first book
  • whenever the sexes talk to each other they give up before communicating anything and blame it on men being stubborn dweebs or women being incomprehensible mysteries.

The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan

I just finished the second book in the Wheel of Time series and it was such an amazing read! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. This series has such an old-school feel to it and reading it feels like being embraced by a friend.

Finished The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan

I have a feeling that I'm just going to fall deeper in love with this series. Took me five days to read through this, although it doesn't hurt that I have a less intimidating mass market paperback. I really enjoyed reading the adventures of Rand al'Thor and his friends. I'm really excited to see what happens next. I read the ending at 2 am, Philippine Time because it was amazing and I just can't put the book down until I was done. I was lucky my classes start in the afternoon.

The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan

I promised myself I would take a break after reading two books of this giant series. You have Mistborn waiting in the drawer where you hide your non-academic books, I told myself. I already took it out of the plastic. But it was 2 am on a Monday morning and without thinking about it too much, I removed the plastic from The Dragon Reborn. However, I wasn't crazy enough to read it when I have a lot of studying to do so I'll be reading smaller sections until Wednesday, when my break starts for Holy Week. So far, I've read the Prologue and a part of the first chapter. More intrigues awaits the gang, it seems.

Continued: The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan

Loving the pacing of this one compared to its predecessor. Jordan's prose can seriously drag at times, but in all honesty I don't mind, as it leads to exceptional world building. Also loving some of the new and returning characters that I did not think I'd see again.
