The tenth novel seemed to take me an age to read; it was long-winded, dull, and not all that interesting to me or to other readers, if Amazon reviews are anything to go by. Knife of Dreams, on the other hand, was an entirely different matter. I read it in just under two weeks, making it the quickest read Wheel of Time book to date, for me. I just couldn’t put this one down; I read it any chance I got.
