Mom of 2
With so many books, I hate to see them come to an end and it was so with this one as well. But I have to admit the ending was so well constructed that I feel it is complete. While there are many threads left untied, none of them were left hanging in such a way is to leave me frustrated. This was an excellent way to end an Epic Adventure!
Robert Jordan is a mastermind of modern fantasy, and I was extremely lucky to have discovered this in-depth and pervasive novel set. Brandon Sanderson did a great job of completing the series after Robert's unfortunate death, leaving the original author's telltale signature upon the series intact.
The end - you're left wondering about something I won't spoil. I'll only say that as of early 2015 there hasn't been any word I can find about what some of the last parts meant.
About impossible to listen in one sitting, took me nearly a month with an hour a day.
If you've worked your way through the series, you have to get it. If you're thinking about skipping to the last book, don't. I skipped from the fourth book to the 11th but would recommend anyone wanting to skip along to also get "The Lord of Chaos" before skipping to the 11th book.
if you've made it this far in the epic you owe it to yourself to finish the series. The ending was better than I hoped. having just finished it after reading it for the last 17 years i am sad the universe of the wheel of time is likely finished. I will reread the series again after I take a couple years to digest it, and I would recommend it to any high fantasy enthusiasts without a second thought.
