Liked this book very much! The characters keep developing and become more interesting in each book. The story keeps growing and has become more interesting.
I liked these books while reading, but Michael Kramer just really brings this story to life. He made me feel a lot more than I had when just reading. His performance is astonishing
So my biggest criticism is that the male heroes in the series are whiny, and one the females seam to be bereft of reason at times. I understand what Jordan was wanting to do by throwing these kids into an overwhelming adventure but he milked that thread to long. I was not able to read the Dragon Reborn but I could listen to it. I just powered through the early whiny doldrums till Matt became interesting. By the end it seams the protagonists have moved beyond their whiny ways. I ended up really enjoying the book. Of course the audible performance is outstanding.
always a favorite, in text and now in audio! The narrators make this a believable adventure that had you hanging on to see what happens next. love it!
The story is good, to many women who are always upset, angry, and aggressive and to many oblivious characters for me but the story is good. The performance is a travesty, as usual, with readers who speak during the most exciting parts of the story as if they are are telling you the 8 O' clock news. During exciting parts of the story you may not even notice that something important and exciting is even happening because the tone is as flat as it is at all times by these performers. I would greatly welcome all these books being re-read by a more creative performer(s). Perhaps then I wouldn't think every woman in the book an angry, bitter, shrew (both good and evil) and characters might appear less clueless.
For me, as in many epic fantasy series, the third book really starts the story. The wheel truly gains momentum in this book and the web grows deeper and more intricate.
This is my third endeavor through The Wheel of Time, and the Dragon Reborn will always be my favorite.
