Lord of Chaos

Lord of Chaos - Robert Jordan

Out of all the books I’ve read so far in this series, this probably ranks as my third favorite. I found the last couple of books in the series a little on the slow side and reading them was kind of like treading water. Lord of Chaos started out a little slow, but it quickly picked up. Don’t get me wrong, there was still quite a bit of sitting around waiting for things to happen, but I found that this book moved more quickly than the previous two. There were a couple of moments in the book that I found a little too ridiculous though, which kept me from rating it higher. I won’t go into specifics, but it involved Nynaeve, Egwene, and Elayne. Certain events surrounding these characters in previous books annoyed me a great deal and what happened in this book, annoyed me even more. Also, I’m still not a fan of the whole love triangle, though I guess it’s really a quadrangle, going on between Rand, Elayne, Min, and Aviendha. I really wish so much book time wasn’t devoted to this.
