For anybody who has followed the series of books, the last book has finally been published.

A Memory of Light - well worth reading

I knew it was coming out today, but I have to wait until next week so I have a credit and can get it for free. I don't know if I am looking forward to it, or dreading it. It's been a long journey, and though BS is good, he's not a patch on RJ.

I got the American book through Amazon.fr a couple of weeks ago.

It is fast moving. I really was pleased with it.

I'm waiting for the Kindle edition - I have all the others on Kindle now, and it hasn't half cleared a large shelf in my study :D

Has anyone read any of Brandon Whatsis other stuff?

Yes. Elantris - his first, and not too great. Mistborn and the Ways of Kings - both good.

I only began The Wheel of Time series when I heard that Brandon Sanderson had finished the series, as I have read several of his books and enjoyed them. I had been put off reading the series after reading lots of negative reviews about the books in the middle of the series. I thought I might read the first few and the last few and fill out the middle by reading online summaries! However, despite some long stretches with little happening and some characters being incredibly irritating, I got drawn into the story and have kept with it.

I am now on book 11, the last of the Robert Jordan ones, and looking forward to the last three. I feel I have been lucky only coming to this now, that I can just keep reading through without long waits between instalments.
