on to the next. if you've liked the books so far, no reason to not like this one.
This is the third book in the series and I am still hooked. How does he keep so many interesting story lines going. I count seven significant characters that we are following through the wheels of time.
I read the story the first time a while ago, and now listening to it the second time around. I am catching some things that I missed when i read the series, now that I am listening to it. I find that I don't prefer the female reader's voice for the characters in this story; I think it is a bit too mature. And I did catch that she pronounced Moiraine's name incorrectly in the first book. However, I still love the Wheel of Time, it will always hold a close spot to my heart as the first series I ever read.
This series has gotten me hooked it has good pacing and covers a wide range of topics with mysticism sword play romance and a coming of age story told from both gender perspectives
History, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Pay attention and be rewarded with a very well thought out world of intrigue.
Not for background noise or partial interest. If you miss one critical sentence an entire chapter or more could lose it's appeal. Get lost in an epic. Look no further until you give this series a shot.
I liked the first two books better. There were too many descriptions repeated from both previous books. By the third book I didn't need to be re-informed what main characters look like or what the bedrooms in the White Tower look like. This is a long series of books which need to be read in order. It's not necessary to keep restating information as if each book is written to stand on it's own.
I think Kate Reading is a good narrator but I feel like she makes many of the characters (especially the women) sound more angry than they really are. Characters sound angry or sweet with little in between.
I will probably keep reading to the last book unless the angry women get the better of me.
Listening to Michael Kramer, now into the third book has has the characters down.
I am not sure if it could be changed. I got bored while listening, there is very little of Rand in this book it covers the other characters travels after the events of the second book. There is a lot of information presented that is important to the series.
When Rand looked into the swirl of darkness and said, "I am the hunter now."
I would not make a film of this book, I would demand the Game of Thrones treatment, as there is way to much to try and squeeze into a couple of movies.
Slow, boring at times, mostly build up, this is a must read for all the information that is learned through the many lean pages. But, I think the boredom makes the story a bit more believable, adventures of this magnitude in real life are nothing like the movies.
