I would plan to re-read,but I can't see myself finishing before January! After all,I've been reading the series for what seems like my Entire Adult Life (though actually only since 1992,a mere 20 years...!) I have listened to the audio books up to The Fires of Heaven relatively recently,so maybe I'll read on from there. I do hope he doesn't leave too many loose ends.
i am so angry with brandon sanderson that it has taken him this long. have you noticed how many books hes managed to publish of his own in the time he was supposed to be working on the final sequel? i cant even allow my hopes to go up that it really will be out early next year
I gave up on George Martin 2years before book 5 was published- DH bought it as soon as it came out but it's been on the bookshelf for ages and I still haven't read it.
I think I was spoiled by the Malazan empire series. Steven Ericsson published a book every year without fail from the late 90s until book 10 the crippled god which took 18months. He never let his fans down. That's what has been keeping me going while waiting for Memory of light. I feel like my adolescence will finally be over when I finish that book- but yes, gaiman is right, Brandon Sanderson is not my bitch ha. Nor is he going to hurry up and finish if I buy as many of his own books as possible for bribery!
I know Robert Jordan had really hoped to finish his last book before passing away-we mourned him in our house on that day. DH and I originally found the wheel of time the first of many things we had in common when we first met!
