#2163, "For the record, A Memory of Light is...."


          

...pretty damn good. A very good ending to the Wheel of Time series. Yes, some of how it ended was pretty telegraphed but when a book series has been going for 25+ years, SOMEone is going to guess correctly on how things will end.

I have to say that exactly *how* the ending was achieved was kind of a surprise and done in a cool way.

Non-spoiler quote from a review I read that is filled with spoilers (Leigh Butler's, on Tor.com):

"Lan. ####ing Lan, you guys. He is the Lannest Lan that ever Lanned, and it is glorious, and I can’t even handle it."

The final book has several callbacks to things that seemed extraneous, unneeded, or just downright silly. It answers (obviously) a TON of questions, destroys a ton of theories, and delivers several scenes that fans have been waiting over a decade to see.

To conclude with another quote that fits quite well:
"If you have the means...I highly recommend picking one up."
