This being my mis$pent youth I frequented this shop on a regular basis coming to know many great fen in the process.
And it did come to pass that the shop received a review copy of the 1st volume of the "Wheel of Time" series by Robert Jordan.
Said copy was then circulated amongst the regulars to read and review.
In my turn I reported back "Its OK" in a fairly dubious tone of voice.
Because mine was the best review it received, I got to keep the copy.
Alarm bells went off in my head at that point, and I've avoided the rest of the series ever since...
