He did die but it worked out. He knew that it was coming and left his wife (editor) with copious notes and instructions to find the right person to complete the series. She chose Brandon Sanderson (amazing author) and he did a phenomenal job with the final books. Don't hesitate to read the books thinking that there isn't an ending. There is and it is quite satisfying.

They are making a TV series (Amazon) based on the books. I'm pretty excited, read the series years ago and hopefully the TV show is solid. They definitely have alot of material to work with. Great series, books 1-5 are great, middle 6 are fine but the story doesn't progress much, and the last 3 are very good.

8,9,10 absolutely dragged, but once the series resumed at 11 it picked up quite a bit and felt like the first few again. RJ did pass away before finishing the series as another commenter indicated, but he spent his dying weeks and months transcribing copious notes and various passages. The final chapter he wrote entirely. Sometimes you can feel the style shift between chapters between RJ and Sanderson's styles but it's mostly seamless. Parts of the final book feel like gratuitous mopping up of loose ends, but I felt it a satisfying conclusion.

Yeah, RJ would have done a better job since it was his series. BS did a decent job but I could tell much was left out that would have been expanded upon with RJ.
One example - the forging of Power Weapons, RJ would have expanded upon it, BS - wrote about it once and they never made any more, even though they had the capability... uh huh

Totally agree. I read them all, and while some of RJs later books were slow in advancing the plot, I still found his writing and character depth an order of magnitude better than what BS was able to convey in wrapping up the series. Some of BS' stuff is enjoyable, but when you are cranking pages out as fast as he has in the last decade, they just aren't going to be as refined, as thoughtful or written in as nuanced or clever a manner as some others in the genre, e.g. Rothfuss, Hobb or even grittier writers like Abercrombie or Lawrence. Most fans suspected RJ would die before the series was concluded. I personally wish it had just been left unfinished in hindsight.

The first three books are great, very fast paced and you get a lot of plot line advancement that really sets up the absolute slog that the other books become thereafter. That is not to say that the serious isn't worth a read, if you love a tremendous amount of detail and side story you will probably enjoy the series, and there are some very good moments in all of the books. Some of them just go on far too long, lol.
