I came home to a pleasant surprise Monday evening (January 7, 2012), delivered by my friendly postal employee. I received my signed first edition hardcover copy of A Memory of Light one day early, the day before the official release:
As you can see in the photo above, Brandon aptly personalized my copy with the phrase ‘The End.’ I started reading this series twenty-three years ago and I nearly gave up hope, when Robert Jordan passed away, of ever reading the long prophesied Last Battle. Soon, all my questions will be answered (or so I hope).
I stayed up two hours past my normal bed time to read the prologue and the first six chapters. I’ve read another six chapters since then and will read a couple more before falling asleep tonight. I predict that by Sunday, I’ll be posting a review here of my thoughts on the longest, sprawliest epic fantasy series I’ve ever read and whether A Memory of Light was worth the wait (and the hype).

Nifty to stumble upon your post, because I gave up on the series, but I’ve always wondered if Jordan ever finished writing it. He has some really big ideas within. Looking forward to your review.
Thanks for stopping by (or stumbling upon) my blog post. I will definitely be writing a review here in a few days. I’m also leading a discussion (and read/re-read) of the entire series over at GoodReads. You’re welcome to pop in over there as well.
Grace and Peace,
Thanks for mentioning the discussion. I’ll check in here again in a few days.
My friend got me hooked on this series. I love/hate him for it. Congrats on the signed copy!
