So much action. Everything is coming together for the last battle. Sanderson is a great fit for this series. He picks up with Jordan's epic tale and carries it on. I am nearly finished with this one and am very excited about book 14 coming out next month. I recommend this title.
The transitions are a little choppy but the author has a keen sense of being able to reacquaint the reader very quickly with the details surrounding the characters. So much going on and very action packed.
I really like Tom and Perin by Kramer.I also like the thick accent Reading brings to the daughter of the nine moons.
i would just keep the title of this book or if all fourteen books were to be made into some series I would call it "The Last Battle" with some subtitle.
Love the series. It does have some slow parts, but it has been worth it.
Yes, Brandon Sanderson is doing a spectacular job taking over the story arc, well done.
the rescue of Morraine
I enjoy their readings, I have throughout the books.
when Perrin crafted his new hammer and accepted his responsibilities as Lord.
Listening to this was a wonderful experience, I read the books a few years ago but listening to them brings an entirely new aspect to the books. However.. I do hate how Kate says Mesaana. *shudder. makes me cringe every time. Awful name. Other than that, they did a marvelous job, as usual : )
There were so many AMAZING action packed scenes; Perrin turns it on and pulls out the bad ass card, Egwene has awesome scenes, Mat.. oh mat, BEST CHAPTERS at the end of this book, Gawyn is awesome, rand goes super Saiyan. Just so wonderful all around, It's like RJ (and Saunderson) kept action scenes from the last two books, then combined them into this culmination of bad assery. Great book. Can't wait for the conclusion!! Ahhhhh
I'm very fond of Kramer's take on Mat, and his handling of Loial. And I think Reading does particularly well with Nynaeve and Aviendha.
For me, this is the best book in the series since The Eye of the World began it all. I've enjoyed the ride all the way through, but this steps things up a notch, and the timing for that is perfect, as it's the penultimate volume ramping up to the (hopefully grand) finale. I couldn't be happier with Harriet McDougal's choice of Brandon Sanderson to finish the series.
The narration for this audio version is good, as it has been for the whole series. I wasn't sold on Michael Kramer's voicing of Rand early on, though I had no problem with his treatment of the other characters, but over the course of the series it grew on me to the point that now when I read the print version I hear Rand as Kramer's version.
Kate Reading's narration is good overall, though occasionally some of her pronunciations seem odd to me, but not distractingly so.
Absolutely. The Robert Jordan series is my favorite series. Brandon Sanderson was able to pick the story up almost seamlessly.
Only other books in the series like The Dragon Reborn and The Gathering Storm
Mat and Thom in the Tower of Ghenjei.
Get this whole series and start from the beginning!
Maybe... If there was something I thought I missed the first time.
Near the ending... The fate of Matt was pretty surprising
Maybe better pronunciation of the names and places.
Almost.... I did go through it pretty quickly.

This has been a wonderful series. Some parts slowed and some was to much discription of things someone reading the series didn't need to hear over and over again. I general it was great. The narrators, being my first, I think did a fantastic job. Now I must wait for the last book. I'm listening to the preview and it will make it the more harder to wait.
her pay backs
the time they passed their test
can hardly wait to get all the books
Yes. Mainly because it's a little while until the final book comes out, and I will likley need a refresher
After 12 books, it's really nice to see some plot lines get finalized; and they are all awesomely done.
Consistency. They are both great in their own right, but when used in combination, it really helps to set mood/expectation for what is to come.
I cried a few times; laughed a lot!
None needed :)
Brandon Sanderson is a good author however his style differs from Robert Jordan in such a way that for the series it doesn't fit just right but I still love it.
