Are these as obsessed with gender and identity as they seem from spoiler free reviews?

Anyone heard of this little known series? I guess Amazon picked it up for a TV show. I haven't gotten all the way through book one but it seems like a pretty good lord of the rings knockoff so far.

Does pic related ever get good? The prologue was nice but now I'm on page 200 and all they do is run away. Is the entire series like this?

I'm about 200 pages in the first volume and I gotta ask: does it get any better or will it stay this underwhelming?

I ask because there are 14 goddamn books, each of them around 700 pages, and I'm already struggling with Jordan's style. It's not as simplistic and dreadful as Brandon Sanderson's, but it's a far cry from what I was expecting. The cliches are abundant and the prose is dull and insipid. It's a drag.

Ok that it's muh genre fiction, but Christ. I had heard great things about this series.

Why haven't you started this book series yet /lit/? Only a little more time left until /tv/ fags ruin it forever.

This was not good. It was actually pretty god damn boring. A transparent, unoriginal, and uninspired mimicry of Tolkien

My friend bought me pic related for my birthday because he thought I'd like it, but just reading the prologue I'm already dreading reading it. It seems like the most generic and boring fantasy I've ever seen. Is it really worth reading 700+ painful pages just to avoid an awkward conversation? Should I just read a wikipedia summary and pretend I actually read it? What do /lit/?

/lit/ is mostly full of a bunch of non-fiction/ really old classic novel nerds so they don't really read much fantasy. wheel of time series is pretty good imo

So I just started reading this and it seems pretty good so far but why is every female character literally a saint? Also am I supposed to hate Egwene? So far she's been a real annoying turbo feminist that has her head too far up her own ass and Rand still seems to like her for some bizarre reason.

Wheel of Time thread.

Is there anyone who's actually read the entire series? Was it worth it?
