    1. Lord of Chaos is 900+ pages of people posturing for power by standing (or sitting) around talking. Painfully slow pacing with very little tension that ultimately arrives at a limp ending. It's quite possible this book could be removed from the series altogether and none would be the wiser.

    2. "The lions sing and the hills take flight. The moon by day, and the sun by night. Blind woman, deaf man, jackdaw fool. Let the Lord of Chaos rule."There is no going back. The Wheel of Time is now officially one of my favourite series of all time. At times while reading I got this weird, amazing feeling that only two other works of fantasy have given me before. There was something this sixth book had that took me over the edge and far down the other side. Or more specifically, something this book [...]

    3. ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.I could almost copy and paste my review for Fires of Heaven right here and it would be mostly suitable because Lord of Chaos is more of the same. This is another metropolitan-city-phonebook-sized novel with a potentially interesting story that is bogged down by its excruciatingly slow pace, regular insertions of backstory, constant descriptions of the garb of every major and minor character (garb which keeps getting smoothed, straightened, or otherwise adj [...]

    4. I've completed Book 6 of the epic Wheel of Time buddy read with my amazing friend Branwen! While the awesome parts of this book made it all worth reading (particularly that exciting battle at the end) I must confess this was my least favorite novel in the series so far. Still, the Wheel of Time books just get better from here on outright?

    5. Guide: How to Female in Wheel of Time:-Learn something new. Assume you then know everything and make sure everyone who also knows how to do it is aware that you know more. Establish dominance by making something up and insisting on it.-When first seeing another female be sure to judge her neckline first, followed by face, clothing and finally where she comes from.-If a woman flirts with your man, get angry at him for being present while that occurred.-If your man attempts to keep you safe or giv [...]

    7. A new month a new Wheel of Time book with the fantasy fanatics of Buddies Books and Baubles. This book is both engaging and infuriating. If I were to write 30 words or less that sum up my feelings about the series so far they would go something like this.Never have I read a series that I like so much based mostly on worldbuilding, plot and cultures while disliking or struggling with most of the characters.The continuing fight against The Dark One or Lord of Chaos and his chosen is really well do [...]

    8. To review this book, I have to start by telling a little story about my history with this series, and more specifically with this book.It was in the great year of ought 7 (2007) when I was first reading Lord of Chaos, the sixth book of The Wheel of Time. It was also the same year that Harry Potter was finishing up and sadly when the author himself, Robert Jordan, died of a rare disease. I decided, not only did I want to make sure there was an ending (sorry, I know that was insensitive of me), bu [...]

    9. *** 5 ***A buddy read with my Fantasy Addicts at BB&B! May the Wheel weave as the Wheel wills!!! Amazing! More than amazing! Have I covered it all? Yes, I have! I have run out of superlatives for this series and I do not care! The pacing of the story is very deceptively slow, but it builds on itself, fiber by fiber, and by the end of each book you find yourself holding your breath, barely able to take in air, because it is an energy outward transmutation of a million plot lines coming togeth [...]

    10. Took you long enough to stop your main characters from sucking, RJ. Truthfully this was 3.5 stars, but I gave 3 stars to all the other books (and somehow am still reading them), so I gave this one the benefit of the doubt (and 4 stars).But this book was over 900 pages!A few things RJ could have stopped repeating:- The men/women dynamic- How much the maidens think Rand is either their son, or brother- How much Warders look like wolves- How much Aiel look like wolves- How complex names of actual w [...]

    11. This was another enjoyable instalment in the Wheel of Time series. It was an improvement on The Fires of Heaven, but did not reach the heights of The Shadow Rising( the best WoT book so far ). It though Jordan did OK when it came to advancing the plot in this instalment. Not a ton happened, but it felt like a lot of stuff got set into motion. This meant a lot of focus on politics and scheming, but I've always been happy enough with such story arcs. The characters proved a mixed bag: Rand: I thou [...]

    12. This book contains much more different point of views than the first five; we even get to see the inner thoughts of some of the Forsaken. Each POV usually contributes to a different plot, subplot, or thread which makes a really complex overall story, so if you thought the one in the first five books was way too simple (I am kidding), this book really makes matters much more complex. This is also the point where the number of named characters became too great for all of them to be in the glossary [...]

    13. Review: Reread done! Lord of Chaos is one of my favorite books in this series so far, purely on the amount of things happening. Sure, the story does not move much in any direction, (nothing much resolved) but there is quite a bit of stirring and simmering until the pressure builds up to a boiling point and BAM! The lid is blown at Dumai Wells! Spoiler-filled notes:(view spoiler)[- Aes Sedai make MANY VERY WRONG decisions and want ALL the respect (TIP: It has to be earned) *Glares at Alanna & [...]

    14. HOLY HELL. Some shit went down in this one!Rand - FINALLY feels like he finished with his whining and getting on with stuff - his stuff being manwhoring. And, I LOVE IT. Egwene - WHAT IN THE HOLY HELL?!Loial - LOVE YOUElayne - I just like you less and less every book. Shut up. You have basically switched places with that other idiot, Egwene.

    15. THIS IS MEANT AS A LIGHT, NOT-TOO-SERIOUS BUT HOPEFULLY FUNNY REVIEW, SO PLEASE TAKE IT FOR WHAT IT IS. AND NOW, ON TO THE SLAUGHTER!!!Nyneave tugged her braid as hard as she could bear it. Any harder and she would surely rip her scalp off. “How am I supposed to review this book?” she muttered, holding a copy of Robert Jordan’s Lord of Chaos in her left hand. Her right was busy pulling at her braid. “The author’s first three books were really good––well, if one turns a blind eye on [...]

    16. On my future grave, I swear, the following is true. Once upon a time there was a book series called The Wheel of Time, which, when piled each volume upon the other, could reach past an elephant's rheumy eye. Once upon a time, after searching for a good new fantasy series, I began tWoT with a healthy gleam in my eye. What a blithe fool. What a tWoT.I turned pulped wood pages by thousands, read a very-many lot-of words, until one day an annoying pattern manifested. Though I pressed on, it had beco [...]

    17. Was the whole world really burning up?Thank goodness for the Wheel of Time Wikia page. At this point in the series I can’t really differentiate too clearly between books; everything is just blurring together. I suppose it would help if I read the books back to back, but that is not a realistic option. I honestly need a break between instalments. That said, I do believe I enjoyed this book more than The Fires of Heaven. It felt, to me, like a return to form, but all of this is pretty relative g [...]

    18. So you made it to book 6! Now that you're here, that means you finished book 5. Have this not really spoiler-y lolCat based off the second to last page of The Fires of Heaven!Stolen from this comedy goldmine thread. It is hilarious but beware spoilers.Rand finally has some real chapters in this book. Since book 2, The Great Hunt, he hasn't figured much as a point of view. Sure he had some chapters in the Aiel Waste, and the climax of book 5, but he was all caught up in becoming a man out of lege [...]

I do think of it as the beginning of a long stretch in this series where nothing really seems to happen. When you look at this book and the two or three that follow it as a whole, you can see how a bunch [...]

    20. I can already tell that this series is going to eat my brain, and not in the super special fun way, but like in the way where some things about it annoy the hoobedy-boobedy out of me, but other parts of it compel me to persevere. I will spend the next five books (before Brandon Sanderson takes over) being yo-yoed back and forth between moments of "yes, give me more of that!" and "NO MAKE IT STOP." I know this because that was what started happening to me while reading Lord of Chaos. I can only i [...]

    21. 4 StarsThis was the start of the tougher side to the Wheel of Time series. There are some real high’s in this book, but there are also quite a few long and drawn out lows. The wiki page states that there are 47 freaking pov’s in this book and it sure felt like it at times. I hate when authors pile on more and more characters, it does not actually correlate to a better story most times. This was my third time through this book, and it is the last of the books that I actually read cover to cov [...]

    23. Part 7 - Canned RandThis is a reread of the entire Wheel of Time so there’ll be spoilers for the whole series ahead.Well that was a real slog. If Fires of Heaven was brightened by the warm glow of nostalgia and affection I’d retained all these long years, Lord of Chaos increased the glow to a harsh and grating fluorescent flicker. Sure, Dumai Wells is a great sequence, possibly the high point of the series itself and I’ll go into more pointless detail on that later, but there is a TON of b [...]

    24. Monthly buddy read with the lovely people over at BB&BAlmost halfway through the series. And I can't be more exited! I should have read this ages ago. Finally I can see why all the old timers say that Mat's awesome. Don't get me wrong he still gets on my nerves but he's no longer that spoiled little brat that though only about gambling, wine and women. And he knows how to lead an army. Even if he tries to convince himself he's not cut for the whole hero/warrior thing. Part of it are the memo [...]

    26. HOLY MOTHER OF JORDAN!How I get high with this series; the amazing drama, action, and the high fanatasy element was at its best in this book. Aiel and Aes Sedai and Forsaken and whatnot. A thousand pages, and what an end! It was a well-worth read.For me, a lot of things changed with this book. I started loving Aiel (even the Wise Ones); began to admire Egwene (this book was important to her), and since they gave me a lot of reasons, I was annoyed by many Aes Sedai ventures. But I'll give them th [...]

    27. What was meant to be a glorious trilogy turned into a bloated, never-ending story. As I read the 4th and 5th books, I became quickly disappointed with Jordan's obvious decision to start stretching the series and winging it to bring in a bunch of cash. The breaking point was when I was reading this book, and I got to page 600 realizing thatnothing had happened in the book yet!I closed the book and cut my losses. My friends on Book 11 wish they had done the same.

    28. I don’t think I can call this a review, but rather a list of the most important things that happened, and my likes and dislikes at this point. Spoilers ahead, so be warned.Nynaeve Healing Logain, Siuan and Leane: very cool. The same goes for Elayne, who figured out how to make ter’angreal, and an a’dam among them. Elayne and Nynaeve’s behaviour made them highly unlikable though. I particularly hated the way they treated Mat, who is the most improved character and my favourite at this poi [...]

    29. Executive Summary: I enjoyed this more on my reread than on my initial read, but I still found it weaker than the previous books, and the start of the slower pacing of the "middle books" that often prevent me from recommending this series to others.Audiobook: Micheal Kramer and Kate Reading once again do a fantastic job with the narration. They made listening to the slower parts of this book a lot more tolerable than reading them probably would have been.Full ReviewMy original rating of this boo [...]

    30. After being a bit disappointed with The Fires of Heaven I have to admit I was nervous about picking up Lord of Chaos, especially when I realised it was the largest book in the series so far (a whopping 1040 pages!). I actually put it off for a long time (& fell way behind all my buddy readers) because I was so nervous but apart from a kind of slow start (which, let's face it, most of these books have suffered from) this was much better than the last book. The last third was completely grippi [...]
