The Wheel of Time

First book in series. The Wheel of Time (WoT) is a fantasy book series by Robert Jordan that I have been enjoying for the last year.

Intended to be a 12 book saga eleven books have been publish to date. Mr. Jordan died in 2007 leaving the final chapter to be written/completed by someone else. Jordan left notes and has written the final chapters. There is so much to wrap-up that the new writer choose to make the 12th book a trilogy.

I have listened to all the books read on CD. The books are looong, any where from 21 to 40 hours each. It would be cool to edit (GarageBand) all the books into linear stories. This could be enjoyed by fans of WoT (people who know the stories, read more than once). Put all the chapters with each of the Two Rivers characters (Rand, Mat, Egwene, Perrin) in a series, collect all of Moiraine Damodred, .... Some chapters would be repeated but that is OK, we want to hear the life story of each character from various perspectives. Where I to do this, my first project would be to collect the chapters with Mat Cauthon.
