I initially bought this because this would be my third read of the series (at least that I can recall.. I started around 1992, I think...)

And, I've been known to skip some of the writing in the originals because, well, there's just so dang much of it!

Leigh's summaries are fantastic. I've gone back and forth reading her summary and then going back to the original book, and she does an absolutely excellent job on picking out the parts you need to get the gist of the story.

I have to say, I bought the summary for books 5-6 and I just had to go back and read the originals. One of the reasons was, fact is, Rand is at his coolest (for the most part) through the first six books. In later books (7-9), Jordan started to digress into secondary plotlines a bit too much - and I expect to be depending on the summaries even more than I did here.

Having said that, what's also fantastic is the commentaries - with one caveat mentioned by another reviewer. Sometimes, Leigh gets a bit redundant about the inequality of the sexes and such - but, I have to say, I've read most of them and walked away a bit more conscious of a females plight in this world. Not exactly what I expected, but on the flip side, gals who read fantasy are pretty dang smart, so, there you go. ;) Having said that, she also gives some excellent commentary on the "literature" side of things. I mean, like pointing out the similarities between Catholicism (and the Schism) and the Aes Sedai and the White Tower, or digging up some nuggets where Jordan drew inspiration for various personalities, like Moiraine (Merlin), Galahad (Galad), etc. Really good stuff.

Also, what's great is that she'll highlight things that you see or remember from previous parts of the book and it saves me a TON of time looking this stuff up myself. I cannot count the times I'd see a name (when reading the first time) and have to go back and find all the stuff I could about that particular guy/gal. I mean, even Padan Fain, for crying out loud. (Hey, it was the '90s!) I now make notes in my kindle, but there are times when I've really benefited from Leigh's commentaries because of that.

Now - about her style.

MAN! Her personality comes through and she's really quite entertaining to read on her own. Fact is, the summaries are a steal at $1.99 a piece and I plan on getting all of them, even for the books I've read again (1-4) and haven't read at all (the last 3). She's got a great voice and I'd love to see her right some first person POV fantasy of her own - I could really get into it. Heck, she's the type of writer you'd really like to get to know and have a few drinks discussing the finer points of your favorite subject - The Wheel of Time, of course! In other words, her writing voice is very approachable.

One last thing - BEWARE the spoilers! I do kinda wish she'd have been a tad more careful in spoilers, and I don't mean just in the book you're in. She'll drop tidbits about characters from 3 or 4 books later. So, be mindful of that, and perhaps come back to the commentaries after you've read the originals. Since I've read all the way to book 10 already, it hasn't been a huge issue for me, but I did want to mention it.

Definitely good for a re-read. But, if this is the first time reading the series, I highly recommend reading the full books.

Great to read along while on the journey to get every detail in order. Also adds spice to the already fantastic dish that is, Wheel of Time.

Ms. Butler takes all of the mystery and nuance that ties the whole series together and brings it together in her commentary. Great work!

These re-reads are fantastic, whether you are reading along with them or are just using them as a refresher. I highly recommend them.
