Yeah, reading through
Pillars of Creation right now and I can tottally see the similarity to Ayn Rands "Anthem" and its really putting me off. :(
EDIT: I meant Faith of the Fallen
I'm about 1/2way done w/ WoT2. It's pretty good but rand continues to be a pudwacker. He came across some bodacious babe in some alternate reality that happens to have compelling power over him. If she ends up being just some sexy hussy and not a sububus of some sort i'll be mad.
Also, book two is called "The great hunt" but I for some reason looked at book three's chapter titles. I noticed there was a chapter called THE HUNT BEGINS.
If the great ass hunt doesn't even begin in book 2 I'll be MAD
Good story though
