I feel a need to defend Robert Jordan here, after the way he was thrashed earlier. His Wheel of Time Books are one of only a few series I wait for and purchase the new ones the day they come out. Too bad about his blood disease. But anyway, on to the defense - While using the standard farmboy to world savior plotline, he keeps it from a transition into an all-knowing savior, who still makes mistakes and has failings. His characters are very human, which I enjoy. There are rare times when he crosses from descriptive to rambling, and His use of an entire continent's worth of people causes the plots to slow down a bit around book 8, but if you're willing to spend a lot of time devouring a fantasy epic, Jordan's books are definitely for you.
