Exciting conclusion to a story that has captivated me for years. Listening to this book really brought out the characters personalities making it a very enjoyable.
This was a really good ending to the series. The scope of this book is unlike anything I have read.
Difficult to single one event but the last battle was really well written.
Love coffee and a good read, especially audio while walking, cooking or whatever.
A great end to the best fantasy saga ever. I have been reading the Wheel of Time series for a long time.
Matt, always. So clueless and so knowledgeable at the same time.
Yes, all 13 previous books.
(Spoiler) The death of Egwene.
The amazing way which everything was neatly tied together. All the complex threads and stories and lives that were entwined raveled and unraveled beautifully. You are left extremely satisfied after two decades of waiting for the final chapter.
As far as an epic story and adventures NOTHING compares. I'm sorry~ nothing. I am left with a small depression... a bitter sweet goodbye of a world that I will miss. My heart aches knowing that I will not be part of he fourth age. I will miss the struggle between the Seanchan and the Aes Sedai. I will not see the Black Tower grow in its rightful place. I will not be privy to the new and beautiful bond between men & women that can channel. I am left in agony over never knowing how the Aiel take their place in the world. I have SO much regret that the stories are over... I've never felt a sense of loss so keenly from a book or a series. I know there are no beginnings or endings to the turning of the wheel... but this is "an" ending. RIP Robert Jordan. And Thank you Brandon Sanderson for taking up the flag. Love you both.
As always~ Egwene's battles and fights enthrall me. Without spoilers I can say that any of the scenes where she faces off against her enemies make my heart beat faster. As her emotion and indignance at the shadow grows, her power climaxes. It's simply exhilarating
Gosh~ I don't know if words could convey... perhaps something simple: There are no beginnings or endings to the turning of the wheel of time.
NARRATION: Top notch. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading make this story come alive. I will miss their voices floating in my apartment living room.
FINAL THOUGHTS: I will once again repeat my horrible sense of loss. I can't believe it's over. Like a petulant, greedy child, I want more. I do not want to lose this world I've come to know so well. How does one let go of something so precious?
I have always loved the wheel of time series. This one started out poorly and starts as Camlyn is being over run by the shadow. Afterwards I was able to jump in and enjoy the story, but had to catch up on the plot line that wasn't covered in the books.
Good, but had some questions on issues and thought somethings would need better finishing touches for those of us that have spent so long engrossed in the series.
They both have a wonderful way of being a story teller that keeps you listening, even when it's time to get some sleep.
I would have loved too.
Just the rough start issue and some closings that were shockers.
Too many expectations
Resolution. All the story lines are tied up. and for the most part, it was very satisfying.
Matt versus Mordeth.
The book was fantastic, but I am not sure it could have ever met my expectations. I have read the series for so long and waited for this conclusion for more than twenty years. Not sure it could have met my expectations, especially since they have said there will be no books after this one.
Historically, this series has had a lot of filler. Brandon Sanderson did a good job of making every scene seem important to the end result. Michael and Kate do an excellent job of bringing the characters' personalities to life.
Matt and Perrin are my favorites. They represent polar opposite views of responsibility and heroism, but I somehow manage to identify with them both.
Michael did an especially good job with Matt, capturing his personality very well.
The previous thirteen movies have all leed up to this - the epic six hour nonstop action battle sequence where almost everyone dies.
A fitting end to one of the most beloved Fantasy series of all time. Hail to the King, Robert Jordan... you too Brandon Sanderson. Well worth the wait.
Yes, I have invested some much time into this series, I want to be sure I understand how it was closed out.
I read this entire series
It was an intriguing look into anther world.
Many story lines left handing, Padan Thain felt like a thrown in after thought. How Lanfear was handled was superb. The entire Seanchan issue was left unreslved, leaving Mogidian as the one Forsaken with the ability to come back if the Seanchen release their Domani
Perrin and Mat, Egwayne, Tom , Lan etc.. they are all good infact.
I both laughed and cried.
Epic ending for an epic series. Awsome work by Brandon pulling this of so very well.
