I've read many of the reviews below this one, and I'm both amused and annoyed at how certain people panned it because it contained too much "religious content" while a comment from the other extreme criticized it for not mentioning a church! Give me a break, the story takes place in a fantasy world. I read WOT for entertainment, and it entertains quite well. If people want to read tomes on issues of morality then they can read those instead of wasting their time on fantasy novels. I am also puzzled by comments about just how horrible the series is by people who have went through 6 or 7 books... one would think they would have stopped before then if it was indeed that bad. The editing and typos in some places do detract, but not by too much. I do agree with people who want closure to the series; After all, it's hard to remember and keep up with the multitude of subplots. If you don't mind going back to the earlier books to refresh your memory everytime a new volume arrives, this is a great deal.
