Crossroads of Twilight

Thursday, 2 January 2003

Robert Jordan’s newest Crossroads of Twilight will be re­leased on the sev­en­th. and i must say that i am ready. since i start­ed his Wheel of Time se­ries in 1994 and it of­fers very few signs of im­pend­ing clo­sure, i have be­come slight­ly im­pa­tient and per­turbed and even at times ap­a­thet­ic re­gard­ing the se­ries. it has tak­en so long for him to write it that i have out­grown my teenage nerd in­ter­est in the se­ries. that doesn’t mean how­ev­er, that i won’t fin­ish it. i’ve in­vest­ed enough time and cash in­to pur­chas­ing and read­ing the books that i must fin­ish what i have be­gun. i just wish Robert Jordan could do the same. the first four books in the se­ries were very en­gag­ing but he has sput­tered ever since, i think, be­cause he is try­ing to stretch the sto­ry in­to a few more books to make a few more bucks. i’m ex­pect­ing to be dis­ap­point­ed. hope­ful­ly i’ll be wrong.
