Which came first: The Crown or the Throne (of Swords)?

A Crown of Swords (The Wheel of Time, Book 7) - Robert Jordan

Nevermind. I don't really care.


Hate reading isn't my thing but it passes the time. Again, my most sincere and heartfelt thanks to Michael Kramer and Kate Reading, I wouldn't have got through it without your narration. Thank you.


If I didn't think before Jordan had a problem with sex, I'd have thought it now. He obviously didn't subscribe to the view that "if you can't say it, you're not ready to do it." Everyone in this book is absurdly prudish about talking of intercourse but not of having it. Copulation. Bless the slang(s).


Another random observation: The Red Ajah, must be the one where all the lesbians go. That has to be it. Too bad, the characterisations don't add any layers to the evil men hating women who love other women. If anyone.


Did I mention Jordan continues to be the worst? Because he really, truly does.
