The first six books were fantastic Jeordam Send a noteboard - 17/01/2014 07:22:28 PM

There were glimmers here and there afterwards (the Cleansing for instance), but for the most part, all of the memorable stuff went down in the first six books.

Don't get me wrong, I like Sanderson's books....its just that he is no RJ. His trilogy broke some major rules, and really just kind of....dribbled off. Sure, it wasn't the close to the story that I wanted, but then the author I wanted to end it died. It would be much akin to "The Return of the King" being done by someone else.

As for being removed from Canon-status...I'm not sure. It's not like they are Fanfic or something. They are published with the full approval (and even involvement) of his writing/publishing team....and his notes.

Should the last three books be officially removed from Canon? - 17/01/2014 08:31:08 AM 1293 Views

I can see the argument, but in general, no. - 18/01/2014 08:37:43 PM 627 Views
If anything, I think BS was more aware of Egwene's flaws - 20/01/2014 04:00:24 AM 591 Views
