Having read these books a long time ago I decided to try one my first audio book. I really enjoyed it, a very different experience from reading and an excellent way to fall asleep.
This has been my favourite of the series since i began reading them twenty-some years ago. This is the perfect balance of diverging plotlines where all threads are relevant and exciting. Perrin has the best of the storylines, while Rand has the most interesting chapters with his stroll through the glass columns.
the narrators work so well together bringing the characters to life. You can be holding your breath one moment, saying aww the next, then cross at a character's stupidity. Able to be a stand alone, such a build onto the last book.
He was such an amazing storyteller.
I know with these real long audio books, there is a lot of information that needs to be explained! It's just in the five I have listen to except the first it has been really slow! The pervious book ended on a high note full of action and a great climax but then when the next book starts its as if it never happened and that built up momentum comes to a screeching halt or ran at a dead run into a wall. Overall the book was good and well written and I can't wait to hear the next one!
I love this book and this series for that matter. I did not like the choice of having one narrator read for a few chapters and then switching. There was a male and a female narrator. Why not just have them read the male and female parts?
