Back on track from disappointing crown of swords. Some interesting developments for rand, and to a lesser degree Perrin, Elaine.
a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
Many of the wheel of time books are solid in story and audio. The previous two bold in this series I have listened two have issues with the track. Audible needs to do qc on some of their products.
Not much actually happens in this one. There is no mention at all of one of the main characters and everyone almost gets interesting then it switches perspective. This is one of my favorite series but this volume was a huge disappointment.
"Story finally starts gaining momentum again! Voice over was clear and concise. Easy to listen to and understand."

To many things going on at one time. there are like 7 story's in one book.
Totally addicted. My first audiobook was "Game of Thrones" narrated by Roy Dotrice...and I hated it. With all of the characters and Dotrice's voice, I could not keep the characters straight. When I started "The Eye of the World", I almost stopped because of the similarities I heard between Michael Kramer and Roy Dotrice. However, after listening for another couple minutes, I was completely drawn in my the story and incredible voice work. Every book finds me downloading the next book in the series in continued anticipation. I used to hate traffic. Now I find myself sitting in the garage for a couple extra minutes.
There was period of time during the series that Jordan's writing felt slower. I had difficult reading and maintaining interest.
The narrators help diminish that feeling. Kramer is particularly good at making slow chapters feel interesting
