I started reading the Wheel series back in '98 or so, got to book 8, and lost interest. I've picked them up again on my Kindle and am slogging through. The guy knew how to stretch out events that should have taken a few chapters, into multiple books.

Do Sanderson's Wheel of Time books have less mentions of bosoms, pony tail yanking, dress smoothing, and gender stereo types? And do they not build up a plot all through a book only to end the book with an out of no where fight with one of the Forsaken?

I haven't personally gotten to read Sanderson's entries yet, but I have a friend who is a certified Jordan addict and he's told me that most of the annoying long descriptions of how many petticoats women are wearing are pretty much gone. Sanderson seems to get to the heart of matters better than Jordan(although since he's using Jordan's notes, maybe he Jordan was just BSing us for 4 books to see how much he could milk it).

In any case, a lot of stuff that should have happened a while ago has happened according to my friend, so it might be worth giving it a look.
