"She has a face like a goat."
(He's also my pick for Lan. )
..I was about to pick up my copy of TEotW to find my favorite quote, then recalled that I have lent the book out. Alas. I think one of my favorite passages is definitely when Moiraine is scolding the Edmond's Fielders by telling the tale of Manetheren. Chills. Every time.
re: speed reading: I read the first eleven books in a month. I read TEotW yesterday, The Great Hunt today, and I'll probably finish The Dragon Reborn tomorrow. I don't think I've ever met anyone who reads as fast as me. And yes, I do retain it, and rather well.
I retain it, I just miss things. I could probably read it that fast, if I didn't have other things to do.
My favorite line from The Eye of the World? Probably anything with Moiraine. I really adore her. I also live for Nyaneve's POV.
And as far as Lan's face cast goes... Just hear me out for a sec: Mads Mikkelsen. I know, I know. Creepy as hell in NBC's Hannibal. But in the 2004 version of King Arthur?
Not super duper pretty, but I've never seen Lan as super pretty.
I totally agree. It's such a powerful moment.
Well, I'm a hopeless romantic, so I'll go with “I will hate the man you choose because he isn't me, and love him if he makes you smile.”
I also love the story of Manetheran.
That's a great line. It gives me chills whenever I read it!
Oh, I love that one!
I have to agree with Falone & Zelinea on this one. I love this line, it has made me tear up nearly every time I've read it. It shows a maturity that I'm not sure any other character in the books has.
(And Viggo is mine! I put dibs on him ages ago! )
Last liners are always great! I just love Nynaeves dialogue throughout it! Light, how the characters have changed!
Nynaeve's conversation with Lan about their relationship was very powerful. But in the end, she put him through the paces
Me too. Every. Time. It's one of those great moments where you're transported even further into a story, and I love it so much!
Just read this book and this quote ... it kills me every time
But my favourite is when Rand is thinking, near the end.
"Every woman is an Aes Sedai. The Light help me, so am I."
