The wheel of time is one of the most engrossing and beautiful worlds I've ever had the pleasure to know.
Brandon Sanderson did amazing justice to both the series and the memory of Robert Jordan.
Thank you for sharing this universe with us readers/listeners.
I'm only going to review the last book in the series, but i will cover them all broadly with my comments.
Imagine a world where your Interfering, Pretentious Mother in law rules society at every level, but some of her sex, actually have REAL power to literally control you.
This story is officially, a series of Good vs Evil, and it is that, but it is also equally a series about a quest for Mankind's lost testicle.
If you are a man victimized by the Manhating FemiNazis of our world, the first books will drive you wild, but like my son told me, whenever I asked him why I was putting myself through this torture, he simply say, "Hang in there, you will like the ending."
I have read the story twice and just finished listening to it for a third time. it just keeps getting better. Sanderson wraps the story up nicely without rushing it. the naration was excellent and transports you to the struggles of the characters. you can feel their pain their doubt and rise with their strength. I could not recommend a better book or better series
The Wheel of Time series appeals to science fiction fans by its vivid imagery and riveting plot. Wheel of Time also contains a fascinating discussion of agency, the criticality of choice in our existence, alongside moving examples of courage. Surprising and delightful and fulfilling. This is a great ending!
I have been obsessed almost listening to the final 3 books in this series..It has been a long journey through all of them.
I expected Brandon Sanderson would certainly make it entertaining but felt he did not quite get the "Bombshell" ending I expected.
If this is because this is what Jordan wanted..then ..may he rest in peace..but he did not give the final book the "Bombshell " ending either.
Sanderson won me over with the series: Mistborn..AWESOME. Many others of his work as well. I fear I may not find another author that will stand up to these two authors within this genre of writing.
The overall series was very entertaining and filled many wonderful hours of listening..mamy hours of interrupted sleep..and probably many hours my husband would like to jerk my earplugs out because I was ignoring him..haha.
Overall, Excellent . And Now what am I going to listen to next?
