If you have made it this far, you're hooked already.
Best of the first 3 books even though it's the shortest.
I don't know what to say about this book other than wow! Great plot development and a very crutial part of the whole series. Do not miss this book if you're at all interested in the series.
This is a review of the audiobook version, not the book itself. I don't know whether Audio Renaissance or Audible are responsible, but the chapter breaks in this recording do not correspond with the chapters in the book. This makes the audio virtually unusable if you are reading parts as well as you go.
Lots of detail. I was thinking I would have to listen to the earlier ones again, because the author seems to give little clues about future happenings and I missed details that become important later.
The series reminds me of the Eragon series, but of course, this came 1st.
Loyal the ogear(spelling?) is my favorite, because he is unlike any character I have read about before.
Once you read(listen) to the 1st book, you get hopelessly addicted to the series!
excellent story and narration, but the recording was glitchy in part 3. sounded like a cd skipping.
I just can't help thinking that the 14,000 plus pages of this series could have been condensed into a trilogy. SHOULD have been condensed into a trilogy. It's just too repetitive and not compelling enough to devote the time necessary to finish this whole thing. My brother skipped the middle six books, and said he didn't feel like he missed anything, so I think I will do the same. I want to get to the Sanderson books, but I don't want to have to read the Jordan ones to do so. I think I will give it one more book and, if it doesn't get better, read summaries of books 5-11.
This is the best of the series so far. I really like how the story weaves around and through the various character groups. Look forward to the next installment. Really glad I didn't start this series as they were being rolled out...
I liked all of them
I like history, non fiction and fantasy genres. Favorite authors (so far): Robert Jordan, Ken Follett, George Martin, Gregory Roberts, Khaled Hoseini, Ayn Rand
This one was short and slow. I guess consequences of the Great Hunt caused the slow start and ramping on to a new quest took half the book. Egwen, Elaine and Nayneve get a lot of facetime in this book and hardly any Rand. Perrin and Matt have started to become one of my favorites.
The narrators are really holding on to the characters from one book to another. They have been consistent with every character unlike other series where narrators adapt different voices over few books. I'm also glad they will be narrating until AMoL.
I wished I would have read Jordan's WoT when I was a kid. But its never too late and I know what to recommend my kid. Great series to keep listening and if you love it, there are 14 books. So enjoy.
It is better in the sense I can work and still be "reading"
This book moves the story along greatly, which I understand the middle books of this series do not do.
