Truely enjoyed the audio. The complaints I read about the audio repeating didn't bother me at all. There were 2 or 3 line overlaps where, I assume, the original tapes or cds changed. It was so little that it didn't take away from the experience. I'm quickly moving on to the next book.
contains several segments where the audio will repeat the last few minutes. this is a flaw in the recording itself. it is just common enough to kill the book's momentum, and this one is all about it's momentous ending that resolves one of The Wheel of Time's major conflicts.
The book was good but the editing was absolutely terrible. The other reviews are 100% correct. The team needs to have this book redone from scratch. It skips, repeats sections, and the whispersync doesn't line up with what is being said. In some cases it can be pages off!
A lot of story progression in this book but the author way over described inconsequential things in the story. Sometimes these help build a picture in your mind but the over use of detail is numbing at times.
Love the narrators! The skipping wasn't their fault and I always enjoy listening to them.
Performance was great as always, but story was quite glitchy- I lost count of the times the story would play a passage twice in a row- short passages always -15 to 20 seconds. But became quite annoying. Happened more than 20 times
Over all it was great. I was a little annoyed that near the end of some chapters the recording would go back 30 seconds to a minute and repeat.
Another book of women who think they control everything and men who cower before them. The story is drug along with only a few really important parts. Technically there were about 10 times where the book skipped back and repeated a couple sentences.
This audio book version has over a hundred 'chapters'. The other version has 36 chapters. I am still listening to the book, but I switched to the other one with an earlier pub date and 36 chapters. I'm hoping it does not have the repeating of paragraphs errors the over hundred chapters version has. The book is long enough without listening to the same paragraphs again.
I don't know why there are two versions. They are exactly the same narrators. Only the number of chapters are different. I don't care about the number of chapters, but I care about the editing errors of repeated paragraphs.
Also, if you make the mistake of downloading one version to an IPad and another version to a Kindle, they won't sync. If you listen to the 100 plus chapter version for four hours on the Kindle, then switch to an IPad, with the different 36 chapter version, it thinks you have a different book I suspect, and starts at the beginning.
