I find that in my opinion the audio books are better then the written as long as the narrators are good and that the quality is good. to me its like a Gleeman (story teller) regaling you with an amazing tale from a far off land ^_^
Everyone has heard of books that you just can't put down, well this was one for me. I would spend half my commute each day listening to this book and had to almost force myself to get out of my car once I got home because I was so pulled into the story.
I am excited for the rest of the series. Hopefully it will have some more detail about the history and where all the different creatures came from.
I've read most the books in this series. I gave up before finishing it, but I'm gonna see if I can power through this drawn out series. First 4-5 books were amazing, but then it gets drawn out and takes too long to get to the point. Instead of Thirteen books, it should have been 6-7 books. Overall this book is very good
I've read this story before, but listening... I felt that I couldn't stop. It moves so quickly and with such purpose that I felt swept along and exhausted when I had to take a break. I'm anxious to begin listening to The Great Hunt!
I am a newcomer to the Wheel of Time series and I can say without a doubt that Robert Jordan is full of vision and imagination which I think many writers have aspired to before but few have reached. Like all fantastic books it draws you in and leaves you wanting more when you're finished. I want to go on about how good this book is, but one cannot really know unless they read it themselves so pick up the book or even but the audiobook. The performance of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading is very good. I listened to the audiobook because I paint in the hot sun for eight hours a day as a summer job. It's a great way to pass the time.
