I'd say they're about as good. Brandon has some strengths that Jordan doesn't. For example, Sanderson rarely drags things out longer than he needs to, and even when a character isn't actively doing anything super exciting (like one of the oh-so-many tea drinking scenes) there's usually something to keep it spicy.

Sanderson is also great at dragging back up points that Jordan seemed to forget about, such as old characters; allies as well as enemies. Also, various plot points that seemed to disappear somewhere in the shuffle.

While it's slightly different, I rarely notice any huge changes in style, and over all, I'd say they make a great team. The books with Brandon Sanderson are definitely worth reading. I just finished Towers of Midnight recently and can't WAIT for the final book.

Last question, then I'll let this topic die: do you know anywhere I can get E-books for The Wheel of Time?

Also, this has been bugging me, why did Rand go into Rhuiden(spelling? The Aiel city)? Did the phrophecy say he had to? I can't remember and its bugging me...
I <3 the Animorphs

I just had a AFF moment. My friends and I were talking about people who use others and I say:
"yeah it's like when someone only makes 5 posts then leaves and never comes back."
No one knew what I was talking about...

I love it too. I can't believe it's finally over. This series has been running for as long as I've been alive. It's kind of weird to think that its complete
