The Shadow Rising - Robert Jordan


I am slowly but surely working my way through this kitten-squisher of a book! 


I can't believe the detail in all of the characters' stories.  I have to say that I appreciate the number of women who get to have significant roles to play.  But I do wish that Jordan wasn't so committed to the "women are mysterious creatures that men can't possibly understand" myth.  We're not that complex!  And men aren't that dumb!
