    Made it to page 200 (of Knife of Dreams) The annoying kid was absent today so I had an hour of relative silence.

    This thread just made me sad.
    Don't write the book is great, I don't get to read it until December darn it.

    I'm too cheap to buy it online and the local library doesn't get it until the middle of Dec.

    Anyway, great to hear people enjoy it. I just hope the Egwene part is decent. Never really liked her character in the later books until Knife of Dreams and hopefully I won't go back to wishing her a horrible death...

    No, IMO Egwene's parts were some of the most enjoyable plot lines. She really showed her strength in this book. In fact I think her parts absolutely rocked! I was becoming more of an Egwene fan after KoD, but after TGS I am a fangirl.

    Does Mat get to do anything but mess with Tuon? (Last half or KoD or TGS?)

    Cool The Wheel of Time

    I have come across quite a few members on the forum who are fans of Mr. Jordan's fabulous books and in view of his passing and the lats three parts being written by another writer, I though it would be an appropiate time to start a Wheel of Time thread. My first post on the subject, do you think the book series would make good movies or perhaps a TV mini-series

    Mini-Series, definetely. A movie cannot simply handle the awesomeness in it. The longer the mini-series, the better, I think.

    That was my thinking, it could run for at least two or three years minimum. I'd love to see how it would be handled

    Yep that might about do book one, so um say two years per book, wow, what a great run they would have

    I think Sam Worthington would be a great Rand, and I'd love to see someone really good play Nynaeve

    I seem to recall reading something last year about the 1st book being planned to be turned into a movie. But for the life of me I can't remember where I read it or what film studio it was that was planning it. I hate myself for not remembering something I read a year ago.
    Then again... there's this whole mini-depression going on so I'm sure alot of things that's planned never happen...
    Then again... if World of Warcraft can be turned into a movie and the "A song of Ice and Fire" can get a series, the "Wheel of Time" series can certainly be filmed.

    I mean... it's not like Hollywood has had even 1 new idea for at least 5 years... Everything is rehashes anyway... (Countless "Insert Title" 2,3,4 and even the supposedly innovative stuff... it's not new!)

    Yes I read that buzz as well in the SCIFI magazine about 6 months ago. Right then we should conduct a poll to see who we would like play the various parts

    Found this on the net guys

    Television and film

    In a 2000 chat on CNN.com, Robert Jordan mentioned that NBC had purchased an option to do a miniseries of The Eye of the World.[24] But he expressed doubts that the series would be made stating "key people involved in getting that contract together have left NBC."[25]

    On 12 August 2008, Variety reported that Universal Pictures had optioned the rights to produce feature film adaptations of The Wheel of Time books. They plan to adapt The Eye of the World as the first film.[26]

    I'm a few chapters into book 4 now. I'm enjoying the series very much. My favorite characters are Lan, Perrin, Nynaeve, Tom and I'm just now coming to appreciate Mat a bit. I like the rest of the main characters fine as well.
    I'm very intrigued by both the Seanchan and the Aiel.
    The whole One Power thing is fascinating although its exact nature has yet to be explained fully. What decides who can channel and who can't?

    No doubt I am. Haven't felt much like reading the last few days so I'm still early on in Book 4.

    As you said before about the Seanchan and the Aiel, they will continue to intrigue you, but at times you'll wish Rand would just blow them away as well
