I really loved this book. The change of narrator threw me a bit at first, and it bothered me that they didn't pronounce certain words the same way, but that went away as the book went on. I actually really like the female narrator. Great book! Definitely recommend!!!!
I love the narrator in this book, his voice fits well with the story. The second female narrator appearing occasionally was a little jarring, only because it felt like she only had 3 or 4 chapters to read and I wondered why the original narrator didn't just continue.
The story itself flowed well and I can't wait to listen to the second book!
After listening to everything Brandon Sanderson had written, I wanted something similar since I loved his work so much. The Eye of the World fit the bill perfectly. A great story, characters to love, and totally clean.
This was such a wonderful book, I enjoyed every moment of it. reading some of the reviews I almost didn't get it. But I believe everyone should form an opinion based on their own experience. And for me this was awesome. Michael Kramer is now my 4th favorite narrator on audible.
Initially I thought the Wheel of Time series would be like the cliche fantasy book: lords and ladies, wise wizards, elves, so on. And I sorta dreaded it, but I needed a long series to listen to so I gave it a chance. I'm glad I did. No wizards, no elves. But an entirely different universe of people. And the word magic is never used. Still only start this book if you want to spend a loooong time in this place. I'm glad I did.
I originaly was told this book was basically a Tolkien Ripoff.
This is not the case.
Though you can see Influeces from fellow TOR and Sci-Fi authors like Frank Herbert, the story is original and I enjoyed it. The male and female narrators do a very good job. Fast story progression with a slower pace for character intro and development, perfect for a nice long series.
I like that they had a male narrator for the men and a female for the women. A good variety of voices and enough inflection to keep the whole thing interesting.
