Magic, Monsters, Prophecy this book has it all. As I read this epic series I'm always wondering what twist is going to be thrown at me next. Also in my opinion the readers of this series have some of the best voices on all of audible.
Probably a bit wordy, describing the a arguments in speeches rather than actions in several instances, however, very entertaining.
I look forward to the next book.
Maybe, but only if I decide to go through this series a second time. It's a solid installment in a solid series, but it doesn't really stand on its own (not that it tries to).
If you're reading these books, it's all about the characters, and there are some great moments of growth for a lot of them. Nynaeve has a couple of major developments in quick succession. The plot around Egwene thickens. The search for a certain bowl turns up some surprising results. And the climax with Rand is a pretty major one, in the context of the whole series (albeit not quite the showstopper that Dumai's Wells was).
Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are a class act. Reading reads all the women's POV chapters, and Kramer reads the men's. Both do an excellent job, and by the end of the book's 30 hours, they became the voices of Wheel of Time to me.
Nothing that extreme, although there were a lot of moments where I said "Ooh" aloud. This book got me to talk with it. That's a sign I've gotten pretty invested.
The Wheel of Time is a huge commitment, but worthwhile. A Crown of Swords, the halfway point for the series, shows that Robert Jordan can handle a slower pace and shorter time frame and still do some pretty great stuff.
Flawless book. Not a boring part about it. Wish they would make a movie based on the novel, just amazing!
