Does anyone enjoy this? Does it get better? I'm currently reading The Eye of the Storm, which (as I'm sure you know) is the first book in the series. I'm reading it at my girlfriend's insistence, because she's obssessed with WoT (I fully expect her to be queueing at midnight for the new one come 2 November). But it's shit. Like, really, really shit. Jordan's writing style is like that of a fecking two year old. "His clothes were greyish green... and his cloak swirled with greys and greens." No shit Sherlock, given that you've just told us his clothes are fecking grey and green. It's my first real exposure to proper high fantasy given that the only books in the fantasy genre I've read so far are The Lord of the Rings and the first three books in Steven Erickson's Malazan series. Can't say it's filling me with an appetite to read more. Thing is, I've spent the whole time I've been building up to it being told by literally everyone I've spoken to that it's the best high fantasy ever written, and that it'll totally blow me away. But it's not. I'm only halfway through the book but it's poorly-written, clichéd rubbish. My fear is that if I turn to my girlfriend and just say "this is shit, and only retards enjoy it" she might take offence. Therefore, does it get any better? Or am I going to be stuck reading fiteen fecking books of this tripe without it improving one iota? I'm seriously considering just reading book summaries for all of the volumes and just pretending I've read them.
