But it was an ending. by TheLastRonin But it was an ending. by TheLastRonin
There are no endings, and will never be endings, to the turning of the Wheel of Time.
But it was an ending.

The Wheel of Time has been with me for a long time, and through some tough times. I was sad to finish the final book.
Rest in Peace James Rigney
Roughed on paper, finished in PS4

That is a very suitable ending. One that one would only understand if they've actually read the book. It's a suitable ending for Rand too.

I really didn't like the ending the moment after I first read it, but after much thought and some distance from the series, it grew on me, and now I really like it. You have captured the last moment perfectly, and it is quite accurate with my imagination.
It's too bad that it's not another horse he's riding...

Mmk, I commented on this before I'd finished the book. I've read it now and... wow. This sums it up so perfectly I just... :iconhandspazzplz: Wow.
Like magic. I cried the whole day as I finished it, yeah.
So, just thought I'd comment again saying that I totally understand what's happening here now. :hooray:
So bittersweet. :happycry:

Right? I did not expect it. OK, some of it I did, but the last part was just... what? Is it bad of me to admit that secretly I'd hoped he'd die? Still, it was lovely to read that last part written by RJ himself so yeah...

I totally understand you...
I'm so sad though I've been wanting to read that last book so much !
I have a tiny hope that B. Sanderson might write the book Jordan would have, Mat and Tuon returning to Seanchan...

Do you know what THAT was "He inspected it for a moment in the darkness, then THOUGHT of the pipe being lit. And it was." ?

Apparently Jordan was going to continue Mat and Tuon's journeys in his "outrigger" novels that he has spoken about for years. Too bad I don't think we will ever see them.

As for the pipe thing, some people have theorized that Rand was the creator reborn, thus he didn't need the one power anymore.

Rand = Creator ? I like that !
Did you know the end had been integraly written by Jordan ?
I'm happy we got to read the last books, but I just thought that... B. Sanderson's writing was just not that of Mr. Jordan.
I'm deeply grateful for what Sanderson did, but... I think there's just so much more things Jordan could have revealed... :sniff:

I agree, it felt like something was missing. I read that there were a lot of notes for the battle and the book we got. I wish there had been a little less battle and a lot more explanation of characters fates.
Reply
:iconskyta:
Skyta Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Student General Artist
me too ... TT
But there's more. Frankly, I didn't like a lot the style of the writing. The way Sanderson wrote was... drier, curtlier. I admit Jordan sometimes needs 2 pages to get to the point, but it was because his descriptions truly were... lyricals, magic.

Yeah, to sum up my feelings, I'd say it was a wonderful story, a magnificient battle, but what I really missed was an epic spirit, a great epic elated wind in words that would have swept away the reader and truly brought him alongside the characters...
( exception : Egwene's death...the writing was a match to the event )

I agree, I liked Sanderson's writing on the last 2 books but this one was missing something big.
I'm sure it was tough to fit it all in but in the end it just felt like the battle took over too much.

Hey, thanks a lot those are very kind words.. I'm a tough guy but I teared up when I hit the page with the Wheel printed on it. I panicked a little fully realizing that it was the last page.
There is still 2 more things to come though. There is a cut chapter coming out in a charity book this year and the long fabled WOT Encyclopedia with many of Jordan's unseen notes.

And yeah, I'm not the biggest forsaken fan either.

I have to finish me reread first (so close) before I get to this one, but it's sitting looking awesome on my bookshelf, taunting me. This is beautiful and really captures how... I feel the books... I don't know where I was going with that. Good mood lighting, the silhouettes are awesome and the sunset is so pretty!~ I like that it's just one person too who is it? Am I supposed to know that? it makes me think that at the end of the book everyone dies... :lol:

In summary of my weird rambling: This is awesome!~
