Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Reading progress update: I've read 582 out of 1006 pages.

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!
