I am not sure.
The relentless battles got tedious along with the role Perrin played.
I would have liked more Matrim Cauthon for sure but you take what you can get.
Also, RJ loves to change/give characters new names and there are a TON more in this book. Rereading the novels would help identify who is who.
My favorite character BY FAR is Matrim Cauthon.
Hmmmm...this is a hard question. Kramer and Reading are my number two readers. El Capitan being Jim Dale. Why Kramer and READING weren't together on Mistborn Trilogy is beyond me, especially considering that Vin is, well, a girl.
Okay, tangential, Kramer did a great job with Mat and so did Reading. Kramer was a little over the top with Lan but what are you going to do. They did a great job altogether and there was one point where I thought they changed their voices for a character since the Eye of the World, but I cannot remember who. Maybe Loial? Loial done by Reading is kind of...rough. But Loial is rough even for a male voice. Doesn't matter. JAIN FARSTRIDER AND OLVER!
Yes and no. I read this book along with a bunch of other fantasy readers and it felt like I was torn in two directions. One direction was to GET IT DONE and then be a part of the conversation about the deus ex machinas and complain about Perrin. The other part of me was deeply saddened, because I knew that when I finished, that was the end of the Wheel of Time(and yes, I know there are no beginnings or endings to the Wheel of Time but I don't see anybody wanting to jump on the RJ bandwagon anytime soon). All in all, it was good. There should have been more emphasis in some parts or even another book. I wanted Perrin to have more time in the wolf dream and Padan Fain felt rushed. RJ had a great vision with this epic and I think that sometimes in the Wheel of Time series, he overspent time on architecture and landscapes and flora and fauna rather than focusing more on characters and dialogue. I loved Nyneave and would have loved more dialogue from her; she was a great heroine in the series, although in A Memory of Light she was sidelined for sure.
FACT: Moraine was not worth losing an eye or Jain Farstrider's life.
Wow what a ride. I figured it would be tough gathering up all the story arcs but it was done brilliantly. Two of my favorite authors knocked it of of the park with this satisfying ending. I just finished and I'm going to read it again; how's that for a recommendation?
Brandon Sanderson, in my opinion, is one of the great writers of our time. Harriet could not have picked a better author. Read any of Brandons works and you'll see.
Michael and Kate brought this series to LIFE. Vibrant, rich and colorful; I am in awe of your talents. To pick a favorite of either author is impossible that would be like picking one of your children over another.
If I had 40 hours straight to read this I would have, but darn it life got in the way.
The likes of this story will never come again. I will miss waiting for the next book, but Brandon has the torch now.
Good finish to a long series. This book finished the series in a manner consistent with the others. I believe Robert Jordan would be proud of the nice work done. Hold on because this book moves at a fast pace and gets busy fast. From time to time I needed to back away from it to settle down. Loads of twists and turns with a crazy negative air. I loved it!
Characters would be easier to keep straight in the print version. (auditory & visual)
Too many battle details, but a great ending!
Epic, Action, finally!
It's a performance, not just a read through. While most narrators speak quickly, these two truly perform.
I never read it but, I loved listening to it
Matt cause he's just so funny.
Very well done. Brandon Sanderson did a great job.
a worthy ending
mat's last strike to defeat the shadow army was definitely the best part.
I've listened to the whole the wheel of time series. their performance was great all around
The death of egwene from rand's PoV
Yes, The whole Wheel of Time series is so detailed, I often pick up little nuances that I previously missed.
They stay pretty consistent with their voices for the characters. They also seem to really get into the story.
I wanted to, but it is rather long. I would walk around the house cleaning or finding any other task around the house that would keep me going around listening to it.
I really enjoyed it, but am a little sad that it is over. This is by far my favorite book series.
An outstanding ending to a long but excellent series. Sanderson may even be better than Jordan in his writing.
