When I first started the book, I thought I wasn't going to like it because of the narrator's voice and long drawn out battle scene. However, that quickly change as the characters were introduced. The book is exciting, intriguing, and endearing. I couldn't stop listening to it.
I do take issue with the female narrator pronouncing one of the main character's name differently near the end of the book. That was very strange, and it took me a while to realize she was referring to the same person. How could that happen?
Narrators pronounced some things differently from one another, "Sadeas" being the most distracting.
The story also took a long while to actually get going. Payoff is good once it gets there.
Overall, worth it.
Always loved the two voice actors, I listened to both of them through every Wheel of Time book.
The book was very good over all but very slow at points unlike Sandersons Mist Born series.
overall I'd listen to it again
I thought this book would be ok but never once thought that this would be one of the best books I have ever had. I bought the paper copy of it too. I really do not like her pronunciation of some names and words but it is a small detraction.
I loved it, took a bit too get going. but once the characters were built it I could wait to hear what's Hakeem next. fantastic character development and a great story. looking forward to the next book!
Starts slow, but hang in there. Your mind will be blown in the last 4 or so hours of listening. As a fan of WoT and ASoIaF, I was worried this would be another epic-but-endless-series, but I don't think it is. Stuff happens at the end. Hang in there. Totally. Worth. It
3,2,1, Blast OFF
The Way Of Kings, An Epic Adventure.
If you liked "A Game of Thrones" Meat your next EPIC read that is cleaner, more polished, and way more entertaining. Anyone reading or listening to this will see the attention to detail Brandon Sanders has put into his story and will start to feel the love for his characters and realize how frail ones position is in life when those in rule don't have morals.
I must give credit to the narrators for bring the story to life off the page.
