I'm scared to even read the first wheel of time book since I have seen how many there are and heard that they fall apart (but you want to know what happens so you keep reading).
I thought there was a 7 or 8 book plan here. He looks like he might kick it before finishing that many books...but if not, we should at least get everything wrapped up although it might take another 10 years
I've enjoyed WoT, but some people quit around book 7. I suppose it's all about how much you like it, and at times how much patience you have. And at least there's only one novel left, and after a decade of waiting, that feels good. So now's the time to get into it.
I know that this series is supposedly drawing to a close, has a definitive set of novels and everything....but I can't see it sticking to that schedule. It's such a large story now, with even more characters, there's no way it can end by book 7.
