Jordan was the author of the Wheel of Time series of books. He passed this afternoon due to complications from his illness. I’ve never read the books or anything, tho it’s been on my to-do list for some time. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the series. It’s so sad tho, the guy was apparently working on the last book up to the very end, and didn’t get the chance to see it finished.
Has anyone read the whole series? Is it as good as people keep telling me? My ex roomate was in love with his stuff, and tried to convince me many times to start reading it, but i’ve just never had the chance. I don’t really have a lot of time for reading. Anyway, i thought maybe some of you guys would be greatly interested in the news, i know he was well admired by a lot of people.
