Just finished Crown of Swords and here's what I think so far. It's still rolling along nicely but Jordan packs SO many characters you have to keep up with it's frustrating trying to remember who's who. At this point I know about 60% of the characters.
There's a glossary in the back of the book but it's not helpful since Jordan only describes the main characters of the series and not the 30 other side ones.
Again (like the last book) Jordan hurries toward a climax in the last 15 pages which makes it really rushed. I hope this isn't his pattern for the rest of the series, because the rest of the content is great!
