THE GREAT HUNT is the second novel in Robert Jordan's massive Wheel of Time fantasy series. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading alternate sections, depending on which character (male or female) holds the shifting point of view. The large book is slow moving, especially at the beginning. Kramer and Reading help the prose along, providing much-needed spark to the characters. The author continually drags the story back to petty arguments between male and female characters, which becomes tedious. On the plus side, the action scenes, Jordan's specialty, are excellent. S.D.
