I finished the book two weeks ago now... I'm fairly satisfied. The book is a great(!) read, and I will recommend this series to anyone that will listen. Most threads in the story were brought to closure, a lot of surprises came, and so many feels. It's a heavy read, the whole book seeming a single continuous battle, you can almost physically feel the fatigue of the characters towards the end. Though I would very much like some more story after the fact. What happens to the survivors? How does their plans play out in this great new future? I guess I must accept the fact that I will never know..
Rear in peace Robert Jordan. And know that your life's work has finally been completed. And completed well.
May you always find water and shade, old companion, as you wake from the dream..
The end was a trip the battles that were played out where very graphic as I set there listening I to the series I felt like I was there like I could see the action the drama and romance the anticipation of what could happen next to our characters. This title has been one of the best series of books that I have listen to. From this point I will listen to this book many and many times over. I feel that I will find something I missed each time I listen to this series. I would like to congratulate the authors and readers on a well written and read book that blew my imagination in so many ways.
best daddy in the world
I wish Robert was still here to write more, but I hope that additional material for the wheel of time universe would be written. the end of the series has left me wanting not just Moore but new stories for old friends.
I finally finished the series! I think audible should have a badge for it. it really is a great series anf well worth stick with it till the end.
Such a great series. Brandon Sanderson did an amazing job of picking up the reins on this story and bringing it to a rousing and unforgettable conclusion, yet keeping himself out of the story. This particular book was the exact ending this story deserved. I don't think I've ever read anything so enjoyable. The story ebbed and flowed, receding and crashing like an angry sea dashing against a rocky coastline at the edge of a storm. Genius.
This is to me the best book series I have ever had the fortune of reading/hearing. The character development, grow, story line are all brought to full fruition in this epic story. The culmination of so many hours knowing these characters, their struggles, fears, hopes and desires. I feel as if I am saying goodbye when I finish this story. I will never know what happens to my friends after this fateful battle but I know they will be well.
By the time I got to he last three books I could not stop listening to this amazing tale! I was hooked by the first few books and then about book 6 I hit a bit of a lull as some of the detail dragged for me just a bit. A few of the middle books moved slower and with less action and I took a break for a few months. Then I came back and from book 10 on I could not stop and searched for every moment I could to reach what I knew would be an ending of sadness, triumph, and an needing which spoke of the beauty of life and the power of human interaction and love. Finding the ultimate importance of choice that is good or bad to create freedom was not totally unexpected but nonetheless a pleasant and profound way to end this awesome journey. Stick with it and you won't regret it. I'm so glad Brandon Sanderson was chosen to complete the series! He was the perfect writer and fan of this epic to to it justice. Thanks Robert and thanks Brandon for taking my imagination on such a fascinating journey!
