Eagerly awaited? I don't think so!,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: New Spring (Wheel of Time) (Taschenbuch)
Contrary to "Publisher Weekly"'s beliefs, I have not awaited this prequel - neither eagerly nor with indifference. I plainly didn't want or need a prequel at this time. Is it only me who thinks that a prequel should be published once the original storyline has finished? We've seen book 10 of the original "Wheel of Time"-saga, without having come close to the conclusion of this epic. With a publishing schedule of 1 book every 2-3 years, some of us might already have moved on to a better world before having a chance to read about the final confrontation between the Dark One and the Dragon Reborn. The storyline has been moving at a mind-numbingly slow pace in the latest 3 volumes of WoT, and now we are given a prequel to "The Eye of the World". "New Spring" is not a bad book in ist own right, but rather unnecessary for the events that currently evolve around Rand and his Merry Men. Obviously an author has every right to choose the publishing order of his books, but if he gives more than a rat's ass about what his fans want, he shouldn't alienate them further and at least finish the story before trying to milk the cow with prequels to the actual story.
