I finished A Memory of Light today, and thought I'd like to talk about it with anyone who wants to... if anyone does. :)
But if you haven't read it, close this thread right now, because I'm about to talk about things like the last scene in the book!
I can't decide how I feel about the ending. Doesn't seem like there's any precedent in the books for people actually switching bodies, but I liked that Rand found a way to survive. And since he can apparently now simply will things to happen without channeling, maybe that explains it.
Since people still know how to use balefire, I am sad that Egwene didn't get a chance to teach anyone the anti-balefire she discovered... although maybe somebody could have learned it anyway. I think she was in a circle when she did it. I was really ticked when I tried to look up something about her in a wiki and had her death spoiled for me. (I was on my phone, and the mobile version of the page said right at the top, "current status: deceased.")
I'm a little confused about the Dark One's status. Definitely imprisoned in a new prison, not dead. But was the comment that there's one black dot in Rand's eye supposed to mean that's where he's imprisoned? Or is the prison now sort of outside the world...?
