    The thing I don't like about WoT books is the monotonous plotline.

    Exposition = First 75% of a bigass book which adds nothing of value to the immediate storyline
    Major Conflict = the antagonist stupidly ranting about how Rand killed soandso and soandso and soandso, laying idiotically ineffective plans to kill Rand anyway, and proceding to set them in motion
    Climax = Rand goes apeshit and blows stuff up
    Resolution = Rand's girlfriends go "there, there. it'll be okay."

    Do not underestimate Aegien. Doesn't everyone like David Sedaris? And I'm going with Egg on This American Life: Best radio show ever. Ira Glass > All

    While not precisely the most "literary" works.. I think everyone should pick up Robert Fulghum's books. They're simple, thoughtful, and sometimes just give an ounce of perspective when you're not sure you can find it.

    That and they're just innocent and sweet fun.

    <i>Candide</i> (Voltaire) is a good (and hilarious) novella... and it's a satire of Leibniz's principle of sufficient reason. Can't go wrong with that.
