    <This series handles gender relationships very weirdly.>

    Yes. Yes it does. Jordan wrote strong, indepedant female characters that get half the screentime... but he also wrote them with some slightly sexist hangups.

    And that particular love octahedron doesn't quite go that smoothly. For a couple reasons.

    I still have a good chunk of his novels to read; on the Discword side, the last two Tiffany Aching novels, the 4th science one, SNuff and Raising Steam. I've half a mind to leave them be, as pristine and unsullied "what ifs" however. Have you read any of the Long Earth books? I only got the first, but I'm undecided on continuing...the characters didn't really connect for me.

    *The comedy in this manga is pretty good but definitely doesn't translate well in english.

    Thanks for the response! The comedy in this manga is pretty good but it
    I was actually on Umibozu arc when i put the manga on hold few months back. I guess i'll read the manga from the beginning to start a full fresh read.

    When did Gintama get interesting for you? Just like you, i tried two times but have trouble getting through some of the beginning stuff.

    Egwene grows and changes a lot. Nynaeve, aside from the thing with Lan, is largely the same throughout. (Though obviously her role and situations change as it goes) But if you like her already, thats a good thing.

    I didn't intend to post something that huge, it was much smaller when I grabbed it.

    And yeah, the first book is very LotR inspired. Jordan had troubles starting it up with his original plan (which would have involved Rand being a middle aged guy) but then took inspiration and it went off. And yes, the story branches out a lot from here... its the main reason the series runs so long, there end up being lots of different plot threads. It's actually pretty rare that the entire group is all in one place together after a while.

    Loial is great too, he's another fave, I'd forgotten he appeared in the first book. Morraine and Lan are good too, but they kind of start out knowing what the world is about and fully formed badasses, so they develop a little less over the course of it all. Nyaeve... always annoyed me, but I know a lot of people like her.

    Its a natural enough pose... its just any other writer would have simply described it as "crossed her arms". The "beneath her breasts" is implied as the natural position for such things.

    Please do keep count of that. I'd be pretty interested to see how many times it actually comes up in the course of 15 books. (Its probably fine to read the prequel when it was chronologically released, after book 10... all the characters and plot elements it takes for granted will be revealed by then.,, but at that point you'll be so close to the end you may want to save it for last?)

    I don't think they're going *beneath* their breasts so much as crossing their arms, which then happen to sit *near* the bottom... the author just describes it weird. And uses it so often it becomes a meme.

    Picked out any favorites yet? For me it was generally Matt, Perrin and Thom, though there's definitely more characters a-comin later.
