I Was Robbed! (spoilers),
This review is from: To Green Angel Tower, Part 2 (Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn, Book 3) (Mass Market Paperback)
I finished reading Green Angel Tower last night. What a waste! Never have a read about such a bumbling, incompetent, irrelevent group of heroes in my life! Only Prince Josua's decisions affected events in any meaningful way. The battle for Sesuad'ra and Miriamele's bow shot at the end were the only instances where the heroes took the initiative and made a difference. Everyone else was dragged around by the swords. If it wasn't going to be them, the swords would have found someone else. Pathetic! About halfway through the last book, I realized I was witnessing the horrifying transformation of Star Wars into The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. If I had to read one more line about a sword-nick-here and a bumped-knee-there, I would have screamed. I'm surprised we didn't get a full account of Doctor Morgenes' paper cuts! But I'm sure Tad Williams thought about including them. I apologize to everyone for not having posted this critique earlier, but I'm a slow reader. Stick with Jordan, even though he may never finish...

This is the most ignorant review on the best story in modern fantasy I ever read. Made me laugh out loud.

Yeah, the pretty much sums it up. You get this build up in the first 2 books and then book 3a and book 3b just blow every previous development to hell.
