I'm not sure if its because its nearing the end of the story, or just the alternate author, but I enjoyed this one very much. Ironically (given the name) I feel like the storm is breaking. The darkness of Rand's steady decline to madness and the division in the White Tower are both finally over. I'm actually excited and optimistic for the protagonists. ( )

This is such a major improvement on the last 3-4 books. Stuff actually happens! The plot finally starts to move towards the end battle. There's no spanking! Some of the most annoying character aspects are removed or the character is absent. Sanderson writes scenes where stuff is actually dramatic and he moves on quickly. What a relief. I zipped through the audiobook and am actually excited about the final 2 books. ( )

This is by far the best Wheel of Time book I've read in a while. I had wondered whether Brandon Sanderson's writing would mesh with Robert Jordan's, whether things would flow like they had, and I can say with confidence that they do much better than that. This book picked up the pace where the past few had dawdled, stirring in an amazing amount of action and revelation while still providing that familiar, lush descriptive narration. For the first time in the series, I feel honestly closer to a resolution than I had before.

I can't wait for the last two books! ( )

This book flows at breakneck speed and is hard to put down once you get into it. With action scenes coming quickly and having lasting results, the book keeps the reader on the edge of his seat, waiting to see what will come next.

By the end of the story, I had a warm, satisfied feeling about what I had just read. After letting the book sink in, I began to speculate about what might come next and started to theorize about what certain scenes, images and allusions truly meant.
 
The book's culmination is enthralling and a challenge to put down as the pace increases exponentially with each chapter. Nevertheless, the battle scenes were not as engrossing as those in the previous 11 books. Sanderson does not rely on the action to push the plot, choosing instead to use internal conflicts to maintain interest.

"The Gathering Storm" is the best installment in the Wheel of Time series since the third novel, "The Dragon Reborn," and will not leave fans disappointed.

Brandon Sanderson, the fantasy writer Jordan’s wife selected to finish the tale of the Dragon Reborn and his battle against the Dark One, has an unenviable task; working from Jordan’s extensive notes, he has to somehow bring nearly 20 years worth of plotting and a cast of hundreds to a conclusion that won’t disappoint. But The Gathering Storm makes a solid start.
afegit per jlelliott | editaThe A.V. Club, Zack Handlen (Nov 19, 2009)
 
For my part, even aside from scenes (agh!) of awesome awesomeing (*clapclap*), I may not be entirely sure how I feel about some of what happened in The Gathering Storm, whether it was Jordan’s work or Sanderson’s but there is no doubt that I’m damn glad they wrote it.

And I’m damn glad I got to read it.

Ravens and crows. Rats. Mists and clouds. Insects and corruption. Strange events and odd occurrences. The ordinary twisted and strange. Wonders!

The dead are beginning to walk, and some see them. Others do not, but more and more, we all fear the night.

These have been our days. They rain upon us beneath a dead sky, crushing us with their fury, until as one we beg: "Let it begin!"

—Journal of the Unknown Scholar, entry for The Feast of Freia, 1000 NE
At the end of time,
when the many become one,
the last storm shall gather its angry winds
to destroy a land already dying.
And at its center,
the blind man shall stand
upon his own grave.
There he shall see again,
and weep for what has been wrought.

Essanik Cycle. Malhavish's

"I'm not giving up gambling," Mat muttered. "Or drinking."
"So I believe you've told me," Talmanes said. "Three or four times so far. I half believe that if I were to peek into your tent at night, I'd find you mumbling it in your sleep. 'I'm going to keep bloody gambling! Bloody, bloody gambling and drinking! Where's my bloody drink? Anyone want to gamble for it?'" (p. 317)
