This is by far my favorite series of books that I have read. I first started reading the WoT series when the EotW was published in 1990. I read the hard copy a couple times and hearing Kate Reading and Michael Kramer give voice to the characters was what I liked best about the audio version.
In this book, Rand is my favorite. Perrin is a good side story, but the main character is the best imo.
It isn't so much a scene as a section. I like the time when Rand is in Caemlyn. He meets Loial, Elayne, and Gawyn and has quite a little adventure until he is re-united with the other Emond's fielders.
At the end of the book when Rand realizes he has touched the power and believes he is fated to go mad.
Since joining Audible I have re-listened to the book several times; every time a new book came out actually. I just recently listened to the entire series in order for the second time. These are like old friends to me. I will probably re-read the series again in a couple years.
The story is superb and the narration impeccable. Although the audio clip seems poor on the preview the quality of the clip DOES NOT mirror the quality of the actual narration.
Enjoyed listening to this. The story, itself, was nice. The way it moved forward did not feel as forced as in other books. Events seemed to flow relatively logically. I enjoyed getting to know the characters. Will definitely continue this series.
This story is intricate and classic. There are elements that might seem trite in less able hands, but Robert Jordan spins a web that I can easily imagine spanning 14 novels. Characters are complex and plot lines are intricate without straying unbelievably from the center. I can't wait to read the next.
I loved the story. It did more than hold my attention, it transported me to another universe full of wonder, mystery and adventure. I found myself arranging my day for maximum listening time. The narration is first class. I love how the reader can create characters with his voice.
