  1. Librarian Note There is than one author in the database with this name.Robert Jordan was the pen name of James Oliver Rigney, Jr under which he was best known as the author of the bestselling The Wheel of Time fantasy series He also wrote under the names Reagan O Neal and Jackson O Reilly.Jordan was born in Charleston, South Carolina He served two tours in Vietnam from 1968 to 1970 with the United States Army as a helicopter gunner He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with V and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm After returning from Vietnam he attended The Citadel where he received an undergraduate degree in physics After graduating he was employed by the United States Navy as a nuclear engineer He began writing in 1977 He was a history buff and enjoyed hunting, fishing, sailing, poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting He described himself as a High Church Episcopalian and received communion than once a week He lived with his wife Harriet McDougal, who works as a book editor currently with Tor Books she was also Jordan s editor in a house built in 1797 Responding to queries on the similarity of some of the concepts in his Wheel of Time books with Freemasonry concepts, Jordan admitted that he was a Freemason However, like his father and grandfather, he preferred not to advertise, possibly because of the negative propaganda against Freemasonry In his own words, no man in this country should feel in danger because of his beliefs On March 23, 2006, Jordan disclosed in a statement that he had been diagnosed with cardiac amyloidosis, and that with treatment, his median life expectancy was four years, though he said he intended to beat the statistics He later posted on his Dragonmount blog to encourage his fans not to worry about him and that he intended to have a long and fully creative life.He began chemotherapy treatment at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, in early April 2006 Jordan was enrolled in a study using the drug Revlimid just approved for multiple myeloma but not yet tested on primary amyloidosis.Jordan died at approximately 2 45 p.m EDT on September 16, 2007, and a funeral service was held for him on Wednesday, September 19, 2007 Jordan was cremated and his ashes buried in the churchyard of St James Church in Goose Creek, outside Charleston.

  2. This is another series that I had a hard time getting into Once I made it through the first couple hundred pages, though, I was hooked Seriously hooked I couldn t put the books down The series has really colorful characters that are easy to get attached to, it s filled with foreshadowing, and the world that it s based in is really original and beautiful So it really came as a shock when I was halfway through book four and I realized that I was reading nothing but descriptions of tapestries and d [...]

  3. Love it I started reading the series in 1994, when I was still in high school and fell in love with it at once By the time I started reading, the first 6 books were already released, so to begin with it was just a matter of going to the library to get the next one After that the waiting began Not only for each new release, but also in the story itself, the pace became slower, and there were parts that felt like you had to get through it to get to the good stuff.Me and my sister, who also got ho [...]

  4. Read the first three and stop Its a great standalone trilogy and I think was intended to stop there until the money making possibilities were realized.I wish the story could have continued, I was very excited to read about Mat and the daughter of the nine moons however id rather have not spent three books for the bowl of winds that never got to do much Oh well Just read the first three and be happy rather than bitter and indignant like the rest of us who got dragged on for decades of our life to [...]

  5. The Eye of the World is the first book in the long line that is The Wheel of Time series Some are better than others but I liked them all They are long and very complicated with an ever expanding story line Some people don t like that but I do so these are great books for me Very simply put the story follows a small group of people from humble origins that help change their world Each in their own way and sometimes not for the better This is fantasy so the story evolves around each persons uniqu [...]

  6. AM so sad he died before finishing the last book.Liked the first couple the best The middle ones were ok and the last few were good again.

  7. This series was all over the map The first three books were absolutely magnificent Unfortunately Jordan became enad of his own voice and led readers through thousands of completely unrelated pages of story There were too many main characters and too many things going on for this to be a good book series and I just finished the entire series last week Jordan also fell into the trap of description again liking the sound of his voice a little too much What did the people across the desert have to d [...]

  8. The Wheel of Time is one of my favorite Fantasy series The character development is great, with each new book we learn about the characters, about who they are and what they think The Story line is brilliant, however it is perhaps not the easiest to get into I had the good fortune, or bad depending on how you look at it, to only come across these books when there was already 8 of them released It is the first time i have read Eight books of the same series consecutively and without a break I ne [...]

  9. So far I m very happy with this series and it s made for a fun summer read something to sink your teeth into so to speak Yes, Jordan gets a little repetitive sometimes and I probably wouldn t have started this if I d realized that the series isn t completely written yet frustrated enough as I am with ASoIaF but otherwise there are some great characters, ideas and twists and turns for those into fantasy of course I hate the awful van art style covers some of the worse I ve seen September update f [...]

  10. Okay, so I had seen these books a billion times and I was always scared off by the cover art Have you seen the cover art on these shits It s so fucking heinous It s like the worst second rate, low budget ass, DD artwork you could possibly imagine However, one day I overheard one of my professors, Dr Lehtola, talking about World of Warcraft, and naturally I immediately joined that conversation and let her know that I, too, am a geek She told me to read this series of books, boldly claiming It s b [...]

  11. The Wheel of time series is by far the best books that i have read.I started reading it last year and couldn t stop till i finished it all I was reading some other series when i first saw this.But i stopped it and started reading this.i could t get all the books here.So i got eBooks and read in my computer.The no of characters in these books It gets hard to keep track of them all.And the detail Robert Jordan goes to is great.It is a really long story and i wouldn t suggest it to those who doesn [...]

  12. This is a series of 11 books only 8 shown in the title above , with the 12th and final yet to be published It is a LOT of reading but this is an amazing series if you are into epic fantasy like the Lord of the Rings It can get long and there are some plot lines that are less interesting than others, but overall this series has kept me interested than any other fantasy series Just realize that you are getting into a huge, dorky fantasy series with an unthinkable quantity of fictional, impossible [...]

  13. I started reading this series back in 1992 and it sucked me in I fell in love with the characters and the story and would buy the books brand new in hardcover when they were released I lost interest after about the first six books, though It s hard to keep up with the storylines when you go a couple of years between books I just saw a couple of the newer books at Dollar Tree, though, so I ve been thinking about getting back into it I just read in someone else s review that Robert Jordan was up t [...]

  15. okay, so, five starsat means i like these books better than, say, slaughterhouse five, cloud atlas, love in the time of cholera, and most books ever written right i mean, not really these books, and others of their ilk harry potter, LOTR, etc are something else for mes almost like comparing movies to tv or tv to theatre, is the most enjoyable tv show better than a great piece of theatre who knows its just different but if you like fantasy even of the oft derided sword and sorcery type and are wi [...]

  16. This series was ok I was interested enough that I read the entire thing, but I don t think I would recommend it to my friends I really enjoyed the first three books, but then it bogged down and became tedious There would be a great action sequence and then several extremely boring chapters about dresses or other random things not essential to the plot I was also really bothered that the main character was having a relationship with 3 different women.

  17. The first few books of this series are at the top of my list as some of favorite books ever Yes the series does get LONG and somewhat bogged down later, but I love it anyway There is light at the end of the tunnel with only one book left to be published It has been a wonderful enjoyable ride.What a tragedy that Robert Jordan isn t alive to see the grand finale.

  18. Another favorite set one that, just like Little House on the Prairie, I maintain on my personal shelves and recommend to students This Sci Fi set is very engaging and thoroughly satisfying it s about time for me to read them again

  19. A fantastic series Sometimes it gets bogged down and a little but it always comes back even better than before I thought we were doomed after Robert Jordan died, but his wife found a wonderful replacement auther in Brandon Sanderson.

  20. God, I love this series It just sucks you right in I have been waiting for the last book for a few years now It might be long 11 books but it is definitely worth it and u really won t even notice the length.

  21. My favorite fiction series of all time I have read and re read every book in the series that has been published to date A brilliant fantasy world that is wonderfully epic in scope.

  22. Awesome In depth characters, no gruesome goryness or sexual stuff, no swearing, and I still can t wait to see how it all turns out in the end These I reread all the time.

  23. A fantastic science fantasy series that draws the reader into wonder and delight Each book becomes addictive

  24. Series starts out good and goes way downhill It begins much like a Tolkien or Arthurian tale of a boy who has to leave his town chased by monsters He and hist friends have Destinies To save, or protect or whatever the world.So at the start it is like the Hobbit or the Shannara series Actually probably closer to Brooks than Tolkien in both writing skill and story telling The usual revelations occur Scenes crop up including something with an abandoned city that might as well been taken from Moorco [...]

  25. Despite Brandon Sanderson s good work patching up the conlusion to this beast after the author died, I doubt I will ever read the newer ones or reread the early ones Books 1 6 were really great back in 94 and still are quite decent But book 7 started going downhill and book 8 was so poor that I tossed it after about 100 pages He introduces quite a few too many new characters and spends a lot of time talking about the clothes they are wearing and the goblets of wine they sip And then the books be [...]

  26. It is possible that some people might really enjoy this series, so to gauge whether it you might like it, you might want to see my ratings for other fantasy books The series really starts out well Jordan created a really unique world and the characters are interesting at face The narrative begins to die after the third book, however The development of the characters is either poor or nonexistent and their motives seem to twist to fulfill whatever plot purpose Jordan had intended I think what you [...]

  27. I began reading these books as a young teen The first two were interesting enough to keep me going But as I kept plowing through his dense books, I found that at the end of the fourth or fifth book NOTHING had really happened in the thousand pages except to run about and keep tabs on his overly complex world As I realized this, I found that the slowing going had come to a halt, and for me, there wasn t a reason to keep reading So, I stopped Then Jordan died without finishing his final book And, [...]
