I am a huge fan of The Wheel of Time series. Being such, I had reservations going into this book, because of Jordan's death and its subsequent completion by a different author.

I've just finished it, and I must say, wow. I am absolutely blown away. When I started the book, I couldn't help but notice the rather inescapable difference between Jordan and Sanderson's writing styles. I loved Jordan's immensely descriptive style and the way he made me understand the characters in a way that most writers fail to do. Sanderson's style is much more direct, and at first I felt a little disconnected from my favorite characters and their enormously intricate world. However, it didn't take long for Sanderson to make me feel right at home; not long after beginning, I was completely captivated once again. I am so ridiculously pleased with the way this book turned out. I won't spoil anything here; just know that some major plot threads finally come together. You really just need to read it for yourself.

In short:
Bravo, Brandon. BRAVO, SIR. ( )

I was so sad to hear that Robert Jordan had died and was wondering if the series would ever finish. I was wondering how Brandon Sanderson would do and I was pleasantly surprised at how well he did and I'm glad that the series got finished and I was able to see what happened to the characters. ( )

Wow. I, of course, was worried about someone else taking over for Jordan and I had never read anything by Sanderson. I have to say that this may be my favorite of the WoT books. STUFF ACTUALLY HAPPENS! ( )
  cory_books | Dec 6, 2020 |
Truly amazing! This book has a complete different pace, which was much needed. Sanderson did a great job! Apart from the faster pacing it did not feel that much different from Jordan. I don't know how to describe this book other than to say it was intense, epic and also quite emotional. Can't wait to read the final two books!

SPOILER WARNING:
I had this book for about 12 months before reading it. Just enjoying the cover art, thinking about the possibilities, stretching out the consumption for as long as possible so as to minimise the wait for the big finale. Awesome read, after investing 15 years of my imagination into this series its great to finally get some pay off! I don't know if it's the change in writers or if the story is just finally coming to a head, but there's some big events here that keep those pages turning madly. The stand outs for me were the breaking and remaking of the White Tower, the rise of Egwene al'Vere-the quintessential country girl-into the heights of bureaucratic & political power, the awesome wielding of the One Power and the True Power, the confrontation between Rand al'Thor and Semihrage that sends him to the edge of madness and his existential crises afterward; coming to a head whilst wielding enough power to level the world in a heartbeat. Reminiscent of Albert Camus and the philosophical idea of the absurd, what a wonderful moment when Rand decides to live and discovers his motivation for doing so. Contemplating the line by Tam al'Thor that for most men its not about having a choice over 'what' it is you must do, but choosing 'why' you do it, that gives your life meaning. I loved the scene with Tam al'Thor despite the fact that it didn't go smoothly, I found it nostalgic, moving, and oddly compelling... the juxtaposition of the old and new, the Freudian moment as the son overpowers the father and becomes a man in his own right, now ready to face his responsibilities and make his peace with the world...

This book flows at breakneck speed and is hard to put down once you get into it. With action scenes coming quickly and having lasting results, the book keeps the reader on the edge of his seat, waiting to see what will come next.

By the end of the story, I had a warm, satisfied feeling about what I had just read. After letting the book sink in, I began to speculate about what might come next and started to theorize about what certain scenes, images and allusions truly meant.
 
The book's culmination is enthralling and a challenge to put down as the pace increases exponentially with each chapter. Nevertheless, the battle scenes were not as engrossing as those in the previous 11 books. Sanderson does not rely on the action to push the plot, choosing instead to use internal conflicts to maintain interest.

"The Gathering Storm" is the best installment in the Wheel of Time series since the third novel, "The Dragon Reborn," and will not leave fans disappointed.

Brandon Sanderson, the fantasy writer Jordan’s wife selected to finish the tale of the Dragon Reborn and his battle against the Dark One, has an unenviable task; working from Jordan’s extensive notes, he has to somehow bring nearly 20 years worth of plotting and a cast of hundreds to a conclusion that won’t disappoint. But The Gathering Storm makes a solid start.

For my part, even aside from scenes (agh!) of awesome awesomeing (*clapclap*), I may not be entirely sure how I feel about some of what happened in The Gathering Storm, whether it was Jordan’s work or Sanderson’s but there is no doubt that I’m damn glad they wrote it.

And I’m damn glad I got to read it.

Ravens and crows. Rats. Mists and clouds. Insects and corruption. Strange events and odd occurrences. The ordinary twisted and strange. Wonders!

The dead are beginning to walk, and some see them. Others do not, but more and more, we all fear the night.

These have been our days. They rain upon us beneath a dead sky, crushing us with their fury, until as one we beg: "Let it begin!"

—Journal of the Unknown Scholar, entry for The Feast of Freia, 1000 NE
At the end of time,
when the many become one,
the last storm shall gather its angry winds
to destroy a land already dying.
And at its center,
the blind man shall stand
upon his own grave.
There he shall see again,
and weep for what has been wrought.

"I'm not giving up gambling," Mat muttered. "Or drinking."
"So I believe you've told me," Talmanes said. "Three or four times so far. I half believe that if I were to peek into your tent at night, I'd find you mumbling it in your sleep. 'I'm going to keep bloody gambling! Bloody, bloody gambling and drinking! Where's my bloody drink? Anyone want to gamble for it?'" (p. 317)
