Love internet shopping, from audio books to nail polish to silk scarves. Audible & Amazon are my go to places.
From the 2 books I've read so far, I gather this series is battle after battle, journey after journey and still the characters are shallow.
I may have been drawn into the series however but it's going to have to be with other books between...I tend to fall asleep listening to it and aren't sure where I ended!
I hope the next book improves from the first 2.
Just a very poor author that copies Tolkien and then has no were to go - blood and ashes it stinks.
Other Sci-fi or fantasy. Hey lets get this straight I give books a lot of lee way and this guy stinks.
Really justs stinks. Can't imagine why Brandon would pick it up. This is a real upchuck. Blood and ashes as she stares me down with her cold eyes. I feel like I want to regress as she stareeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees at me. Oh how she stareeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee at me. Oh blood and ashes it is so terrible.
Just stinks. I have read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy and this is just the worse.
A better story to start. Nothing is exciting and most of characters are not even likable. The whole story just do not quite make sense.
I didn't like the first book, at least the first three quarter of it. Finally some excitments by the end. Hoped for the best then bought the second because of the high reviews. What a disappointment! Truly don't understand why the reviews are so good, while the book is just boring.
Kate and Michael are ok, but their tones are flat. It is like they are truly just "reading", not narrating.
Boredom and a little bit of anger. For the money and time I lost. Seriously, how could something like this become a top seller with so many good reviews? Just because it is long?
wow, this book is just plain bad. The Characters have already been fully developed.... or as much as they are going to be it seems. The plot is kind of looney and if you think about it, it makes little sense. A real disappointment

YES, NO ONE WRITES FANTASY BETTER THAN JORDAN
RAND USES THE PORTAL STONE AND LIVES HUNDREDS OF VARIATIONS ON HIS LIFE
I THINK IF I READ THE BOOK I WOULD FINISH A LOT SOONER, THEY FORCE ME TO SIT BACK AND ENJOY SCENE AFTER SCENE, AS IF I WAS ENJOYING A FINE WINE.
ONWARD TO THE DRAGON REBORN
I love reading and I love Audible. Their fantasy and Sci-Fi selection is excellent!
The Wheel of Time is one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. I'm re-reading the series in preparation for the finale. Love this book.
yes because its an addiction after reading book one.
i dont normally choose the main character however rand is most certainly my favorite.
they do a great job reading it even their voices dramatize the story
The hope of the world rests with three boys
Jordan writes with a sense of wonder that in some ways equals Tolkeins best works but his style is undeniably his own. This splendid saga is absorbing and will keep the reader engrossed and entertained until the last page. Highly recommended.
This book (like most of the books in this series) left me feeling like I was being swept along with them on a grand, dirty, smelly adventure. I love that these characters are so well written that I feel like I know them - what they like, who they love, how they will react in a given situation. They're so real and warm and conflicted.
The scene where Egwene attacked the leash holder with that pitcher, after all. That entire scene was so beautiful, and the timing was so perfect. I loved that the scene also showed the compassion that Nynaeve was capable of. Her response to Egwene's outburst of violence for the first time showed her really growing into the title of "Wisdom" that she had shed when going to the White Tower.
The story, when they read it, sounded just like it sounded in my head the first time I read the book on my own. They did great voice work for the characters - strong enough to know the character they were reading for without waiting for that character to be identified, but subtle enough that they never got in the way of the story.
No. I used it as a reward for completing assignments for my mba classes (read accounting textbook for 45 minutes, and get 15 minutes of listening time).
