The Read Along will continue NEXT WEEK with The Great Hunt!

I hope you all enjoyed this different kind of Read Along. I actually had lots of fun reading, despite Mat, Nynaeve and some minor annoyances. The world is freaking AWESOME and Rand is not so bad to be honest. I can’t wait to get back to the Wheel!


  1. These never fail to amuse. You’ve definitely got a flair for it πŸ˜€

    I just started the Great Hunt and it is SO much better. At least in regards to all the characters. Matt isn’t a total jerk all the time, so that’s a huge improvement…

    1. Thanks for the support throughout the whole series of posts, Bookstooge! I really appreciate it!

      I haven’t read too much about Mat in book 2 yet, it’s more the ‘Rand goes crazy’ & ‘Aes Sedai scheming’- show πŸ˜€ But very intriguing tbh
