      To help get you through a series that is always setting up future plot movement without a care for current pacing, I have invented the followingWheel of Time Drinking GameTake a drink whenever:* A character makes a comment generalizing the opposite sex* Rand's wounds are described in detail* A woman sniffs or smooths her clothing* Perrin smells an emotion* "Good Two Rivers wool"* Min's clothing's boyish nature is emphasized in a description* Someone plays with their weapon (e.g easing it from it [...]

      ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.Crossroads of Twilight was maddening. I read it years ago and ended up giving up on The Wheel of Time after this book. I tried again in my preparation for reading Memory of Light, and I just couldn't manage to do it again. So, as with Winter's Heart, I cheated by reading many of the chapter summaries at Encyclopaedia WOT. I skimmed the chapters involving Perrin's hunt for Faile because I remembered how slow, grueling, and painful they were when I read them [...]

      *** 4.65 ***A buddy read with the WoT dedicates at BB&B! This is book #10 of the series and is probably the one with the least action and most politicking of them all. As such, I am not surprised that it is the lowest rated of all the series, since it seems the majority of us are so addicted to the immediate gratification so prevalent in our society today, that anything which demands our brains to concentrate and actually work to figure things out instead of being spoon-fed to us, we find bo [...]

      We rode on the winds of the rising storm,We ran to the sounds of the thunder.We danced among the lightning bolts,and tore the world asunder.Is Crossroads of Twilight the weakest Wheel of Time book I've read so far? Probably.Is it still amazing? Pfft, it's a Wheel of Time book. Of course it is.In terms of plot development, this book has nothing to offer. Absolutely nothing. But the world and the characters are so fantastic I don't even mind. And since for the first time, none of the protagonists [...]

    5. Gavin on said:

      This was definitely the slowest WoT book in the series. Not a lot happened in the story arcs of the vast majority of the main characters. As a result this was probably the least enjoyable of the WoT books so far. Not to say it was bad! Jordan is an excellent storyteller and I enjoyed the vast majority of the stuff we did get. What did happen to our favourite characters? Spoilers ahead!!!Rand: After the dramatic events of the last book he made only a fleeting appearance in this one and did little [...]

      Crossroads of Twilight has:846 pages271K words30 Chapters + Prologue + Epilogue22 Uniquie PoVs45 Individual PoVsAnd the plot arcs only moved forward 2 inches2 measly inches?????Even Snails be like…Part of the issue is that the first 55-60% of this book is just about what everyone else was doing while Rand and Nynaeve were trying to cleanse Saidin.The Rundown:Faile is still kidnapped by the Shido and Perrin is pretty much at the end of his tether trying to get her back.Everyone still thinks tha [...]

    7. Brahm on said:

      I will keep this short. In this book, absolutely nothing happens. There is no character development. There is no plot. Instead, the reader, who has so generously given Robert Jordan so much of his/her money over the course of the series, is treated to descriptions of dresses of characters whom we don't care about and who have no actual bearing on the plot. My advice to those slogging through this series: Read the last ten pages of this book, and then continue on to Knife of Dreams, a flawed book [...]

    8. Kaora on said:

      I keep saying that these have no action until the last 10% but this one missed the last 10% and has 0 action until the very last page.Let me save you some time.-Elayne is fussed over because she is pregnant. Whines about Queen stuff. Aviendha is also there.-Min strides around in her trousers and threatens Rand with a knife.-Rand does a whole lot of nothing except talk to voices in his head and drool over Min.-Egwene pushes around and reads some paper.-Some Aes Sedai in the hall are pretty. Some [...]

    9. Evgeny on said:

      I really need to mention the reason for my rating of the book; it is a strange one. The only reason I gave this book 3 stars and not 2 which it deserves more is that I never reread the books I rate with 2 stars while I just finished rereading this one. I mentioned 2 star rating as a big series fan.What exactly happened during 600+ pages? Absolutely nothing, that is what. Another big part of the frustration comes from the fact that the previous book ended with a grand event which would surely cha [...]

      Buddy Read with the awesome people of BB&B!Ten months ago I would have taken one look at this book, read a couple of chapters and promptly given up because basically nothing happens. It's a testament to Mr. Jordan's ability to spin a web of characters, events and places around the reader, that now after reading all the previous books in the series I didn't find this boring at all. Slow and frustrating at times but not boring. I remember bitching about books 1-3 with their slow build-up and e [...]

    11. Adam on said:

      Hmmm. Well, the good news is it's not as bad as everyone says it is. The bad news is it's not all that great either. In quickly scanning the last 10 or so reviews of this book, the complaints pretty much boil down to "it moves slowly" and "nothing happens." I rather disagree with the latter.* The former, unfortunately, is pretty spot on. The actual problem with this book, as I see it, is not that nothing happens (see A Path of Daggers, which was great) or that it moves slowly (See The Fires of H [...]

    12. Manveer on said:

      Alright. According to popular opinion, this is the worst book in the series. And it kind of is. It is not bad in the conventional way, it is just very very slow.Like literally nothing happened in this half length book. But as a I explained earlier, I like slow. Heck, I love slow, if it also includes insight into the characters' minds and helps expand the scope of the series. And these things were there.Okay, so this book was about Mat and Perrin, and Rand barely showed up. Well, I don't like Per [...]

      Crossroads of TwilightBook 10 of the Wheel of TimeBy Robert JordanA Wheel of Time Retrospective by Eric AllenI love the Wheel of Time series. It is, by far, and despite its flaws, my absolute favorite series of books. Oh, there's plenty of people out there who can point out why this series is awful and has been dragged on far too long. But you know what, I don't care. To me, this series is great. I thought it could do no wrong.And then Crossroads of Twilight came out.This is the series that real [...]

    14. Ryan on said:

      I consider myself a patient reader when it comes to "The Wheel of Time," but even I have trouble excusing Crossroads of Twilight, Book 10.To be honest, although I recently read Crossroads of Twilight, I can't remember what happens. I actually found a summary on . The current plot summary is worth reading if only because each entry reads: Character / "continues" / To Do / Ongoing Plotline.In short, not only is nothing resolved, but nothing happens.The best that can be said in defense of Crossroad [...]

      Na momente vrlo dosadna, na momente veoma zanimljiva. Sve u svemu, Met i Egvena zahtevaju odmah nastavak u ruke.Prolupaću od ovog Džordana! :D

    16. Mike (the Paladin) on said:

      IIIIIIEEEEEE!!!!!!!!A huge amount of this huge book take place simultaneously with Winter's Heart. The key words in this volume are "trying" and "continuing" as everyone continues "trying" something or is "continuing" with something that never seems to get tied up. We do get a slight move in one plot pointbut it only tangles it more, doesn't move toward tying it up.At this point I could have cried. This could have been one of the great Epic High Fantasy Series in the English Language. Instead it [...]

      Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsNOTICE: this reread is in preparation for finally biting the bullet and reading book 14. That means I HAVE NOT read book 14 yet. Please be mindful of this in the comments, both for me and for others who may or may not have progressed past this point in the series. Thank you.3.5 starsCROSSROADS OF TWILIGHT is notoriously many WoT fans' least favorite book in series. It's been years since I last read it, so I let all the negative hype get to me, and I started dreading my re [...]

    18. Kyle on said:

      The Wheel of Time series represents, for me, the perfect example of a guilty pleasure in the world of fantasy.This series is not actually written very well. Robert Jordan was not a very good wordsmith, and he really only knew how to say and describe things one way. His characters are generally unbelievable, and have ridiculous dialogue. The plot is tremendously predictable, and is heavily influenced (close to the point of being unoriginal) by the fantasy works that came before. The whole story i [...]

    19. Jonathan Terrington on said:

      Crossroads of Twilight is an ugly duckling in The Wheel of Time. Parts of the book are chronologically set in the same time span as the previous book and other parts are set in the 'current' time after the ninth book. Adding to the unorthodox chronological timing of this book is the fact that, of all the books in this series, this book is a 'filler' book. That is not to say that nothing worth noting happens in this book. (view spoiler)[After all we see a lot of important character development, E [...]

    20. JDR on said:

      Honestly, I can't. I can't I can't I can't.Do you know how to tell when you are seriously being f'd up? When you are reading one of Perrin's POVs and you NO JOKE start tearing up, not because you feel for his character or anything, but because you're so damn frustrated. That was me. I'm so sad because I started this series, just thinking, just thinking that it might become my favorite series of all time. Somehow, I still believe that. OMG! HOW DID YOU PEOPLE GO THROUGH THIS EVERY 2 YEARS!!??I ne [...]

    21. Eon ♒Windrunner♒ on said:

      This was one of the WoT entries that I found the least enjoyable of the bunch (so much politics - shudders), but it was still good. Mat carried this one for me as his moments with Tuon were some of the best in the series and I am definitely looking forward to the last few books. It can only pick up from here.

    22. YouKneeK on said:

      Crossroads of Twilight is the tenth book in The Wheel of Time. I think what I liked best about this book was that all of the main characters’ stories were given at least a little page time. Many, but not all, of the smaller subplots moved forward a tiny bit also. It seemed like at least one major storyline was always left hanging in the last few books, and I wouldn’t have been happy about letting any of the main stories sit on the back burner during this entire book, so I was happy to see th [...]

    23. Ashley on said:

      Honestly, I'm not even mad, or annoyed. I'm so baffled by this book. This 822 page book where NOTHING HAPPENS. Full review later.[1.5 stars]

    24. Phrynne on said:

      Basically the whole book was about very little but I am so invested in these characters now that I enjoyed it anyway. You have to admire Jordan's skill. In seven hundred pages we never find out if Rand cleansed the source or not at the end of the previous book. That's how you make a story last through multiple huge volumes. Excited to move on to the next one of those volumes right now!

    25. Joby Walker on said:

      Every would be author of epic fantasy (or any long running series) should be required to (prior to being published) document the failings of The Wheel of Time with particular focus on this book. It is really hard to comprehend how in a nearly 700 page book not only nothing happens, but nothing happens to a bunch of people you don't care about. Most of the book is the multitude of secondary threads reacting to the events at the conclusion of Winter's Heart. Instead of reading the book, I'd recomm [...]

    26. Shobhit Sharad on said:

      It was almost a relief to read this book after hearing so much negative about it.I think this book solved its purpose. The purpose of this book was to show how frustrated and annoyed everyone in this book is. And that is what it does to you, and so you understand them better. That it does it by incredibly tedious and long chapters, with almost nothing happening in them is what describes the story better.Perrin, Elayne and Mat are all waiting for their respective conclusions but there are so many [...]

      Eziyet gibi bir okumayla daha karşınızdayım. Lafı çok uzatmayacağım. Bu kitabı okuduktan sonra Kışın Yüreği'ne o kadar laf söylediğim için pişmanım. Zaman Çarkını okuyanlar bilir Aes Sedailerin %95'ine gıcık oluruz. İnsanlar bu kadar Aes Sedailere gıcık iken 30 bölüm + Ön söz + Son söz, yani toplamda 32 bölümlük bir kitabın 25 bölümünü Aes Sedailere ayırmak niye? Sonuç olarak elim 11taba gitmiyor. Üzgünüm.

    28. Nikola Pavlovic on said:

      Po meni najslabija knjiga u serijalu do sada. Nekoliko politickih smicalica, par povucenih poteza i to je to. Cak me ni sam kraj knjige nije odusevio kao sto je to obicno bivalo sa predhodnim delovima, jer Dzordan obicno povuce nekakav kolosalan potez na kraju knjige. Suma sumarum drago mi je sto sam konacno zavrsio ovu knjigu. Samo jos da dodam i navijacki poklic IDEMO DALJE! :D :D

      Executive Summary: All of the "slow" books have been better on a reread. Sadly this one might have actually been a bit worse. It's not quite 1-star bad, but I'm happy to be out the other side.Audiobook: Michael Kramer and Kate Reading saved me from possibly never completing this book for my reread. There is no way I'd have gotten through the text again so quickly. They do a fantastic job with the rather bland material they are given here.Full ReviewThis is the book I was dreading when I decided [...]

    30. Igor Ljubuncic on said:

      This isn't the worst book in the series without a reason. Nothing much happens really, and the action has ground to a halt. But it's not a jolly kind of a halt, more sort of a large coal-ferrying train has snagged a buffalo corpse (or maybe it was alive at the time of collision), and now it's dragging it to a three-mile stop, while leaving red skid marks on the rusted rails. And the wheels are screeching. And a blind albino boy is playing banjo on his porch, watching the whole thing.Perrin wants [...]
