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
Show me your paso doble.
There were a few interesting moments, but OMG this book is so long winded. I just ended up reading cliff notes for the last few chapters.
Probably not, although I would like to see Sanderson's take on the series.
Matt is always interesting... and I kinda of hate aes sedai and hope they all die so I don't have to hear about their dumb dresses all the time.
No way. This book could have been done in 10 hours. Just not enough payoff for the time invested.
I'm not sure if I'm going to listen to any more of Robert Jordan. Usually when I commute to work I listen to audio books, but this has been a real challenge. I've been having to force myself to listen, and that is not good. No driveway moments with this book :(
This book simply is less interesting and less entertaining than all other books in the series, both earlier and later in the series. To my mind, the story does not progress in this book, apart from a few minor events towards the end, minor with regards to the very few pages allotted to the events, as the events them selves are quite substantial.
skim through this book and get on to the eccelent books later in the series, do not let this book kill your liking of the wheel of time
