Yeah, I just couldn't keep reading...what began as a taut, excellently narrated tale of fantasy, escape, and suspense degenerated into a shaggy-dog story (albeit with great imagination).
I think the bottom line is Jordan had too many "main" characters. Great characters, well-crafted characters, compelling characters...but just too damn many characters. One simply couldn't follow...let's see...Rand al'Thor, Lan, Moraine, Lolial, Thom, Matt, Egwene, Nyneve...the list went on and on, all treated as main characters.
Jordan's world was top-notch, I'd give it a 10 out of 10. His characters were excellent...I'd give them a 9 out of 10. EotW and TGH were both riveting, excellently paced. After that...too many characters.
But I am glad to see it finished. I'll probably read the tenth book, just to see how it all ended.
