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.
I think that the narrators do a fantastic job, it's a little odd I suppose that there are two and that they sometimes play the same characters but I'm assuming that it's because the story is so long that they used two to double the speed I the production. I like them both though.
Extremely slow start, it actually took me a year to get past it but once I got through I was done within a few days. It would've been faster if not for work and sleep. Awesome read!
It started a little slow but I have think it was just setting things up. after that I did not want to put it down
This is not my typical genre but I enjoyed the characters, plot and the narration was top rate. Jordan can write with the best of them. I am hoping the sequels match the quality of this first book. Ratings are all high and the narrators don't change. Hard to come by in a 12 book series. Would recommend to almost anyone.
I can't say enough about The Wheel of Time series. It is incredibly detailed, involved, addictive, & populated with unique, believable characters (portrayed beautifully by the narrators). This first book does an excellent job of introducing the world, its ideas/customs, & main characters. I absolutely recommend falling in love with this series.
