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).
Checking out Brandon Sanderson's work
This is a great series. The two speakers in the audio book are fantastic. Probably my favorite audio book presentation. They get all the nuances of the male/female thought process. Really a great presentation. If you like fantasy, you will love this series - which is good because all in all it is a really long set of 14 books.
I've only listened to 5 and they are all from the same series, but I have to say 5th
the way they act out the parts
the longest mover ever made
The amount of detail given to each character and braid story line almost requires a second read/listen. Following the story with Kate Reading and Michael Kramer make the story their own, but I cant help wonder how much more I'll pick up the second time.
The story feeds constantly at the under lying evasive threat that is the Dark one, and though the focus is on Rand, all the characters are given just as much weight and importance making it feel like a real story of legend.
Perrin Aybara as read by Michael Kramer was a favorite of mine, the way he is written and his struggles with his own personal changes through out his adventure are believable, and his voice matches his character to a T.
I'm a big fan of si-fi, but I'm finding that a love for mysteries budding up in me. I also like a lot of nonfiction.
In this book all three of our young start off all feeling trapped in one way or the other, and this gives them bad attitudes towards the Aes Sedai and, in turn, the parts they play in the pattern. They all get separated and take their own roads through the story. All the fighting and refusing of these parts they play make a lot of conflict. This brings out changes in the characters and they start growing up real quick.
In this book the the charters split up making multiple plot lines. These plot lines tend to get more complicated in later books, making the story hard to follow at times, but it also adds dimension to the story. If you like seeing pieces of a story fall in place, then you'll like this whole series.
It had the same package of entertainment as the first book and I never got bored with it or lost interest.
The first in the series
Kate and Michael do an excellent job of narating this book as they also did in the first novel. Love the combo.
Yep, but always hard when you listen at night with the lights off, you tend to fall asleep, but the best thing is I can rewind the following night and listen from where I left off. If I had time during the day I would listen more.
I'll have to say this rates near the top. Although I have a hard time picking which audio book I listen to is the best. I just love them all in their own right.
After thinking back, I think this is in the top 2 slots of all time.
To me this audio book stands on its own. It has similarities to many things but I can't say its very similar to any other book I have read personally.
I don't believe I have listened to either before. They are both great.
It seems towards the end of the books in the series it gets to where you can't put the book down! I was caught between my credits and the end of the first book and had to purchase extra credits to finish where I had left off.
