Finally, I’m done reading A Memory of Light, the last book of The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan.
Brandon Sanderson did an amazing job of putting tying up all those great loose ends of Robert Jordan’s opus. . I’ve been reading the series since 1998 (thanks to my old friend, Reynard for giving me his books when he left for the States).
It’s great, it’s awesome, it’s bittersweet. The pacing was just intense. the battles were frenetic and sometimes left me breathless. There were several moments in the book that got my spine tingling (especially at the end). There were so much tragedy and hopeless, after hopeless situation, being heaped upon the characters. You could sense how dire it was at the Last Battle and how the Dark One was winning. I was also anticipating with great dread the characters that were about to die. Yes, there will be grand deaths for the characters that you love the most and rather unexpected twists. It was great and when I got the last page it was rather abrupt. There are so many questions at the end.
I went through forums and found out that there will be an encyclopedia of sorts that will come out to answer all of my questions. I’m glad because I want that particular void, that spot filled in. I love the series and I don’t want to let go of The Wheel of Time just yet.
A Memory of Light is great, almost as awesome as the ending of Return of the King, the last book of the J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
Thank you Robert Jordan for bringing us an incredible world. And thank you Brandon Sanderson for continuing Jordan’s vision and dream.
I hope that Robert Jordan is smoking one of his prized pipes in his collection, smoking that fine tabac from Two Rivers. He’s in heaven and in great company (probably with Egwene Al’Vere and Gawyn and the rest having a having a mouthful from them. Hahahaha!).
Yesterday, my family and I joined my in-laws for some swimming fun at the Antel Grand Village clubhouse/swimming
. Judith and I were taking pics of each other at one of the adult pools (the one to the left of my pic). We were about to get out of the pool when I noticed a little girl lying face down at the bottom of the pool. At first I thought that she was just playing, but she was far too still to be playing. Judith told me to move her to see if she was. Tried touching her but she didn’t move. That’s where it hit me. She drowned or was in the process in drowning. I got hold her of clothes, she was just limp in the water and I told myself, oh my God, she drowned. I immediately lifted her up out of the water and immediately, there was this yellow froth coming out of her mouth and nose. My wife and I called the lifeguards and I immediately gave her to one. He performed CPR rather forcefully, I don’t know if we saved her but just then she began to draw breath but there was still liquid coming out of her nose and mouth and there was some blood in it. The lifeguard immediately rushed her to the nearest nurse station. It’s the first time that I saw something like and I don’t wish for anyone to go through that, or any parent to experience it. I was shaken by the whole experience. My family and my in-laws decided to take a break from the fun and eat lunch. after lunch, I saw the lifeguard who performed CPR I talked to him, and found out that the little girl lived. When I heard it, I just felt relief wash over me. felt like a load was taken off my shoulders. Later when we were about to leave the place, the neighbors, who were with the little girl, approached us and thanked me and Judith. They waited for us and they told us what happened. The little girl lived and that she’ll be out of the hospital in 3 days. They kept thanking us and told us If we didn’t see her, she would have died. One of them called me and my wife, guardian angels. It was flattering but I just hope that the little girl fully recovers from her ordeal.
