I've been told by a number of Jordan-lovers that I simply
must read the WoT series (for a variety of reasons).
I've also heard, on this list and from other sources, that
they aren't that great.  Given all this, I'm still avoiding
WoT until a future date when I've got about a year or so to
read.  Of course, I'm of the type not to listen to the usual
ramble of today's readers.  I also prefer more interesting literary
endeavors.... :)

I feel this marks them as people of excellent character.  <grin>
