I had a great time reading EOTW and TGH. However this one didn't grab me as much. It had its moments but it moved very slow in my opinion. I hope the next ones in the series are better.
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.
