I probably would not listen to it again, unless I decided to go through the entire series again.
The pacing is similar to the five books before this.
Yes, I've listened to the prior books. The readers' performan is very similar, and I'm finally getting used to the voices. Initially I was very unhappy with Michael Kramer's rendition of Rand's voice - it sounded too Midwestern to my ears.
Nothing really stands out.

Its overwhelming depth
Rand escaping from the box he was put in while the Aei Sedi tried to bring him to the tower
They were invisable while the characters they voiced suspended my unbelief.
Into the fire of conflict the people move on as the last battle aproaches
Onward to "A Crown of Swords"
This series has its ebbs and flows over the course of the first dozen books. The first five are excellent, though Jordan's pacing and style aren't for everyone. This book, the sixth in the series, is very good, but it marks the spot where, in my opinion, the series really slowed down. Important and interesting things happen in this book, but there's a heavy dose of planning, plotting, and discussing. Still, a good book, but not the best in the series.
I have a theory that the author has major mommy issues and was probably a drag queen.
Man oh man, all of this "men are so stupid" and "women are strange" crap is REALLY getting on my nerves, I mean, we KNOW you've said it at least 100 times per book so far, we get it, your mommy didn't breast feed you..it's ok get over it (I know he is dead), and why oh why does he go on and on about the "colour and texture of the lace on the green silk low cut neckline dress" blah blah blah...this book could have been at least 10 hours shorter and it would still have been long at times.
I will finish the series because I have read 6 so far and the story is good, but if the next one is as slow as this one I will give up.
You do you start 5,000 pages into the series. So If you loved the rest, you'll most likely love this one as well. As new characters are introduced, others are kind of edged out and you have to get to know them as well.
Lord of chaos indeed he he he this one made me smile, laugh out loud, scream for them to go and hurry up :>). one night i was in the tub listening to the book, staring at the wall with my head on bent knees, not wanting to move so i could hear more. i love this series but this book was the best so far!
Incredible story... my favorite in the Wheel of Time series so far. Both of the readers do an amazing job. They're a pleasure to listen too. The story is about as epic as a fantasy gets but its constructed on a real and tangible plane that only Jordan can achieve. Bravo.
I loved the first three books of The Wheel of Time but then started to get really bored with each successive book. It has taken on average about a year and a half to read each of the next two novels and gave up on Lord of Chaos halfway through after a year and a half.
But I hate leaving anything undone and thought I'd try the audio version. The audio version was a lot better than the hard copy version. I actually now plan to finish the series using the audio versions.
I have loved this book series for many years. It is a cult classic and a great sci fi fantasy series. I read everyday and I am now listening to the whole series again. I love this series and even the new book written by another author after Robert Jordan died.
