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.
Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!
Go ahead... Hit the Button that says "0 of 200 people found this review Helpful"... it's obviously Sacrilegious to say ANYTHING bad about this series that NEVER GETS ON WITH IT...
As I said in my Review of Book 1.. the series NEVER just "Gets on with telling an action packed story".... if you like ENDLESS, LONG, repetitive, and USELESS descriptive details, then this book is for you... if you actually like a story to GET TO SOME ACTION, then you won't be finding it here... or in book 3, or in book 4, 5, 6... I had to give up on it.. Maybe it's just me, but Jordan just IS NOT the writer that Sanderson is... maybe the series MOVES ALONG when Sanderson FINALLY takes over the writing, but I guess I'll never know...
The Narration was about all that kept me "Buying the next book"... ALL of the books in the series I bought could be condensed down to about 6 hours of listening time without the readers missing a THING!
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.
