Actually I sorta did. Like many, I listened to the last book first and then went back. So much of the story is in that 5th segment. I had to listen to the whole book to know the many turns and twists and certainly how Egwane died. You cannot know each plot twist unless you listen to the whole book and even then if you get distracted, you must go back.I had to listen to several segments twice to catch the Compulsion ploy.
I loved that the ending was not tidy. The story held from start to finish and left us wanting more.. yes, I would purchase a book about Rand's new travels and his women. Especially liked that the authors made clear that Rand had to learn to give people freedom to make mistakes. Any other ending would have not been believable.
The emotions. You really felt what the author was trying to convey.
Logain's decision to relinquish power for compassion. His decision to help the helpless rather than sieze power over them. I loved it when he realized that a new way was possible. Also, thank you Mr. Sanderson for your conversation between Rand and his adversary when he told Sight Binder why he had no power over mankind. It was really insightful.
Perrin at times drove me crazy. His chivalry began to grate my skin right to the end. "I could never hurt a woman." I understand his character was not the brightest of the group but Perrin for the most part was written thick as a plank. I agree with another reviewer who griped a bit about Matt's clowning. It did get a little old. Having put in a few thorns, and very few indeed.. a huge Valentine bouquet of roses to the Sanderson-Jordan team. Thanks for a wonderful run. I'll be one of the first in line to buy a ticket to the movie.
good to the last drop!
wrapped everything up nicely
you could say there were moments that help my morning movements
Have to have read the complete series to really appreciate. All loose ends are tied up, yet leaving plenty of room for more... ah, one could only hope.
I definately will. I always get something new out of a book the second listen.
Thrilling, Epic, Satisfying
It really stands alone but if you enjoyed Brandon Sanderson's completion of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, you should definitely check out his book series - Mistborn and Way of Kings.
Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are a fantastic narration team. Their characters are performed expertly with great separation and flow.
If you enjoyed the other 13 books in the series, expect to experience the full range of emotions in this epic conclusion.
Even with the passing of Robert, Brian does a great job of continuing the story, and keeping with Mr. Jordans writing style.
The battles are well writen, you can invision everything as they happen.
They both do a great job of portraying the carracters; this i'm sure being difficult with the vast number in the story. Mr Kramer especially has a different tone and sound for each he speaks as.
As always, very difficult to stop reading
A Wonderful Book!
When all the nations worked together for peace.
Heard them all...in Wheel of Time series...they did a wonderful job...
Must read series
Lord of the rings
Yes, but its so long that's not really possible
A fantastic end to a great story
Yes, If they have a few months of time. Once you get started, no way can you stop
Matt, I loved the way the author brought humor to this character.
Egwayne and Perrin Ybarra
The Dragon Reborn
The narrators were great. The sound quality was perfect. And of course if you're looking at downloading this audiobook then you should already have read/listened to the other 13 books so I don't really have to comment on the quality of the story. And on a side note, I love the Android app for the quick bookmarking feature. Very useful.
