I am enjoying the story so far, my only problem is that the chapters in the audio book when I access them on my app do not match with the book. I want to be able to switch back and forth between reading the book and listening to it. It is difficult when there are 2 chapters included in what is showing to be just one chapter. It is difficult to read a chapter in my book then have to go searching through the audio to find where the next one starts. It is frustrating. Please tell me I am the only one with this issue and this is a glitch that can be fixed.
The male narrator is too monotone and sounds like Zap Brannigan from Futurama. The delivery does not capture the listeners attention and I found myself constantly drifting from the plot. I listen to many audio books but I simply can't finish this one and feel like I have wasted about 19 hours so far giving it a go.
The story is possibly fine it is the delivery in the audio book that spoils it.
The female narrator is fine but the male one should have been someone else to bring some life to the plot line.
In all honesty I think the story may be good but it would be better that I read it myself than listen to this gentleman trying to do it.
In a way yes, if only because it's nice to hear the different voice actors for male and female POV's.
Honestly, the journey. While I know some feel it's meandering and slow, I enjoyed the plight of the characters and really wanted them to succeed. Of course, by the end it's really only just begun.
In this book, probably Moiraine.
The journey is only just beginning...
It's the only Wheel of Time book I've read, so take that for whatever it's worth! At some point, I'll try to make time for the rest, but fourteen is a lot :)
The only reason I didn't give all 5 is it really felt like I needed to have read something before this book with the way the author piled on the lore. The series information says its the first. I caught on eventually and others might like it that way. Great story and characters; looking forward to the rest of the story.
Had a lot of trouble getting used to the reader. This must be early Kramer, as he's much better in more recent work I've listened to. Story is pretty cliché and predictable but it marches along at a good clip once the trope-filled adventure begins. Looking forward to a break from the mold in the books to come in the series.
Reading for all ages. Not to gory or graphic or lewd. A quality storyline with an even better reading/performance. The male/female readers takes a little getting used to but enhances the interpretation.
