Wonder how many people watched the TV series and decided to read the book.

Yeah, the TV show was a mixed bag and I can understand why a lot of fans who have read the book(s) were disappointed...but I felt it could have been worse.

But then I watched the 6 short animated episodes (that were hidden or something in the TV show episodes)...and they were so good and true to the books that it actually pushed me more to not like the TV show which deviated quite a bit by the end.
The show had a lot of issues, but the "woke issue" is pretty negligible compared to the bigger problems. It's just low hanging fruit that people who are easily triggered can grasp onto. Ironically, it's all based on things that are in the actual books but just made more prominent or tweaked/added onto.

The biggest one being "pillow friends" and what that means. It's made explicitly clear (or as near as possible) in one of the middle books what that means. Yes, a sexual relationship between two women. I think it was a noblewoman and a Sea Folk woman were caught being pillow friends. The Sea Folk woman said it was because she had been away from her husband for so long...then she gets blackmailed because she doesn't want others to know because she's afraid her husband will leave her if he finds out. So yeah...

Two of the characters were pillow friends when they were younger (as stated in the books). I don't think the books ever said they continued that relationship...but the TV show tweaked/added onto that they did. So IMO, not a "woke issue" but a product of them changing characters/story for "adaptation reasons" really. It served one purpose (showing two character working closely in secret) but has the potential to cause problems down the line.

Warders and Aes Sedai relationships...it's in the book. Sometimes they even marry. Orgy stuff...hmm, not in the book?...but I could see it as something that would happen.

Diversity...so the characters in the books have a ton of diversity. But it's geographically and by countries for the most part, the TV show decided to just make all groups of people diverse (so far). I think it's actually a good "adaptation reason" and the cast diversity was a highlight of the show.
Also order some sort of core trainer to help with the intestinal fortitude to make it through the middle few books.

Lol, thanks OP. I went to Amazon and found out it was already in my Audible library. I wouldn't have been reminded about this without your post.

I read this book years ago and absolutely loved it. The next couple books in the series were pretty good too. From then on, though, what a freakin' waste of time. So disappointing.

The books are fantastic. Tons of character development and foreshadowing.

Don't blame the author for the woke nonsense that is the TV series.

There's a lot of hate here for the middle books in the series, and its not undeserved. I'd recommend reading the first 3 and last 2 books, and cover the rest with audiobooks.

Absolutely one of my favorite series, but I couldn't bring myself to watch the amazon prime garbage after reading what they did to the characters.

People saying this book is good? Important to the series yes, but good? This series didn't grip me till book 4 and then the old man died before he finished the series.

Thanks for the heads-up, didn't know there were animated shorts hidden inside the shows. I'm not done watching them yet so NO SPOILERS please, people! And yeah, from what I've seen so far, mixed bag would be a good description. Certainly not as good as Game of Thrones early seasons or the Witcher first season (haven't watched Season 2 yet).

And shows and movies based on books are never going to please everybody, it's just not possible.

He was very unwell for a very long time. His wife was a very supportive and indulgent editor.

It's really bad though, zero feels. If they modified the characters names a bit and you zombie watched it in the background.... I could see a fan being like "there's something slightly familiar about this story maybe I watched this and forgot about it idk".
