It's hard to realize I've been working my way through these books for over a decade. It was great to finally finish. The reading was top notch.
This is the book we've all been waiting for. There were a few books where it was tough going and I understand why some people left the series. I'd advise those people to just dig deep and get through it because this book makes it all worthwhile. I was gleeful reading this book as I read through payoff after payoff came my way. In the end I was incredibly happy with the way all the loose ends were tied up. A very satisfying end to a long long series.
I didn't read the print version, but the readers of the audio version are fantastic so I feel like it's an excellent substitute for reading print.
Several. Lan, probably.
How do you pick a favorite scene from a book that's tying together years of storyline? Besides, I don't want to give anything away.
Depends on what type of person you are
Matt is always my favorite
I can't remember
Plunging into a world so detail grabs the listener and provides hours of pleasures.
So detailed you bond with so many characters.
3 million words it takes time.
This was much better than I expected, and I did expect a great deal. There were a few minor annoyances with characters, but they couldn't be helped as their trajectory had been set long ago. Still, my first statement stands. Thank you Mat for all the laughs, and thanks Mr. Sanderson.
Reaching a conclusion to a series like the "Wheel of Time" is wonderful. The entire set of stories was well crafted and the performances were excellent. Having a cast that you can follow throught all their changes and evolutions to a good ending is worth the wait.
The "Game of Thrones" is similar but I consider the "Wheel of Time" series more interesting as there is a set of characters through the entire series.
Michael and Kate did an excellent performance making a very long series interesting and soemthing you could enjoy more than once.
As one setting would have taken more than an entire day it was consumed as quickly as possible.
Yes. It was a good story with lots of action.
Lan. He's one tough guy.
Both do an excellent job, creating separate voices for each character.
The part when I was driving down the road yelling "Get him, Lan! Get him!"
Oddly enough, I found Rand's fight to be the least interesting of the three battle fronts. Guess it's difficult to relate something that is of the mind rather than a physical battle. I missed Nynaeve's spunk in this one. Her role was very small in comparison to the other books. I've looked forward to reading this since I started reading WOT. Overall it didn't disappoint. Some things seemed rushed and the way a few things turned out was quite shocking, but it was a satisfying ending to the series.
The audio edition is a great way to conclude the series if you are too busy to sit down and read over a thousand pages of the print version. However, the accent the narrators used does take sometime to get use to, especially if you read the print version of the other volumes!
The sword training session between Rand and Tam was very memorable as it showed that their father-son relationship still existed and sounded like what could be a really cool movie scene.
Michael Kramer and Kate Reading bring an extra dimension to the characters especially in the portrayal of their accents which helped in depicting the cultural diversity of the WoT world.
I would say anyone who has followed the series will be very satisfied with this final book. Hard to believe it is the last book!
There were many clever twists and turns. I won't give any of it away with spoilers - it was all memorable-especially the ending!
Yes - all the books. They are fantastic.
It would be difficult - with over forty hours of listening - but, if it were possible? Yes!
For me, this was a special experience. I stumbled upon the Wheel of Time after several of the books had already been published. I fell in love with the vast amount of characters, settings, plot lines, and the writing. I was so dismay and sad when Jordan passed - and am so grateful that Sanderson took up the cause. My only hope, now is that he will continue to write future stories - there is a rich and vast world that is still waiting to be written. Here's to the end of a fantastic run - and hopefully, the beginning of a new age.
