You can tell that Jordan had most of this prepared before his death. Sanderson would never have dragged this out so much, but 50 endings is a fitting homage to LoTR, and there's no easy way to bring each storyline to a satisfying conclusion with 2, characters, so this is what you get. Excessive, engaging, melodramatic, clever Quite possibly my favorite book out of the whole series. I wish I could personally thank Brandon Sanderson for pulling this series out of the toilet. The last book that Robert Jordan wrote you could tell he was either just trying to stretch it out as much as possible or was personally lost in where to take the story. Brandon had a very hard job of tying up alot of side stories and a crazy number of characters. I can understand why he actually needed to create a new "major" character "Androl Genhald" out of a fairly minor character. Having both read the book and heard it on the CDs I found that it provided two very different experiences - both positive though.

We can observe the change but luckily the change is for the betterment. The development in certain characters that the Jordon wanted to show is not left on the sideline. Over experimentation or new things are not added in abundance that has surely kept the originality in it. The changes that the wheel of time brings in the seasons and fate of the people is still the same that was seen in The Eye of the World and The Great Hunt.
