I just finished this one in the series and it was more exciting that the first book. I can't wait to get started on the next and the next and the next. It is a great series.
I enjoyed this book as much as the first in the series. The two readers are very good and have distinguishable voices for the different characters. However, I think they could have collaborated and decided on pronounciations before recording. They each pronounce names of people and cities differently, which makes it confusing. I've also noticed places where one of the readers will actually pronounce one name two different ways in one sentence. It makes the book very distracting to listen to.
Freedom meets prophecy
Its a style on its own.
I like that they take various voice and intonation for the various characters. Makes the story more alive. Kudo's for a great reading on their part.
Sad a few place. Poor guy fighting against a destiny towards madness and death. "Duty is heavier than a mountain"
Get this, its a good listening.
Yes. It's a good story, hard to get into and sometimes to follow without daydreaming, but worth it in the end.
When I couldn't sleep at night I would count how many times he said "eye-said-eye" His was of drawing out words with his exhale is extremely annoying and hard to get used to.
I love clean books of all sorts. Love mysteries, fantasies epic to kids stories, fairy tales, romances, humor, and historical fiction
I just love this book! I love the narrators switching off. It just adds something. I'd prefer a woman reading when the story is told from their point of view and it is a man for the men's side of the story. You need to read the Eye of the World first, but this story is more exciting. The ending is awesome! I love who ends up blowing the horn and the parts that our character's play. I love the excitement at the end when Egwene needs to be rescued and the men are coming from the other side of the town for a different reason and all the stories mesh together so well. This really is my favorite. A really great read. They are one of the main reasons I became an Audible member. Don't miss it!
I truly enjoyed the reading of this book. The characters are compelling and engaging and the story draws on so many contemporary and classic fantasy themes. It has a few surprises here and there as the main characters are developed and the main story arc is mysterious and engaging. I can't wait to listen to the next one.
I completely enjoyed this book from beginning to end! The last part of the book really got suspenseful. It's left me eager to listen to the next book in the series. Well worth the listen.
Its hard to imagine a better pair of readers for this ripping yarn. The character voices are spot on and have helped shaped my vision of the character set - especially the minor characters that would drown in the otherwise VAST setting of Jordan's imagination. Great story. One for the ages.
