    I think book three is the last time there's a random Balzamon confrontation. Rand is in position now for... stuff, so the dynamics of the world start shifting a bit.

    But yes, the gender politics are one of the weakest points in the series.

    <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.
