AMOL is one of the best audio books I've read, but then again I can say that about any of Jordan's work. Kate Reading and Michael Cramer are two of the best readers in the business.
When Egwene died.
There are far too many to choose one. If your a long time WOT fan, you should enjoy every moment.
Unexpected plot twists how some characters that we didn't know much about get more fleshed out.
I was surprised by the ending. I liked how the struggle with the dark one resolved but not all that happened afterward was clear.
A well done story right up to the end. But thats just it. It ends without closer. Basicaly all lives happily ever after, thats it the end. Is Brandon going to continue the story on? I would think not but who knows.
The fall of five by Piticus Lore
Yes but I wish it went on to say what happened to all the charecters after the last battle.
I loved this audio book as I did the entire series. From start to finish it had me captivated and I cant get myself to delete if from the device for I know I will soon listen to it again
That it was even written, allowing a completion to this branch of Robert Jordan's work.
They are the voices of this story to me. I have listened to them both in other stories and find them just as skillful and individual.
As much as I have enjoyed this series (both written and 'audible') it was a slog for me to get through this last book. I realise Sanderson was trying to tie up all the loose ends - but at times it seemed like this story was never going to finish, because yet something else got thrown into the storyline.
Overall, I certainly recommend this series!
Only Brandon Sanderson could have finished this grand fantasy epic so well. In fact, I think he outdid Jordan in many ways. There are no remaining cliffhangers, but...
The Wheel of Time Turns, and Ages Come and Pass...
The story too complex to be told in film?
Michael Kramer and Kate Redding do a great job of narration, as they have throughout this series. Their narration brings the characters to life, and is actually what made me fall in love with audiobooks many years ago. (So many. we listened on cassette tape! Remember those?)

I found the audio version of this title to be very entertaining and spellbinding. As someone who has followed the series thru all 14 stories I would say that the audio version is as close to a movie or theatrical production as you will get while still maintaining the story. I am also one of those who believe that Brandon Sanderson has added a touch of life and humor that was never there before under the actual author Robert Jordan. Good read, awesome audio.
The culmination of decades of story telling, very enjoyable.
They did an awesome job of changing back and forth in both characters and the presentation of both battles and despair, between love and hate, between light and dark, even tho the lines between all of these are blurred at times.
Kudos to Brandon Sanderson for finishing this series, which might have left us all wondering "what happened?" after the death of Robert Jordan. I could complain that there were liberties taken with the Universe by Sanderson, but ultimately I enjoyed the book greatly and am thrilled at the ending.
I would recommend this audio book to any reader of the Wheel of Time Saga
Any of the other bookks in WOT, except Crosroads of twilight and Winters Heart, my to least favorite of the series. As for the rest of the series, no way to choose a favorite, just epic.
Lan sheathing the sword to defeat one of the Forsaken, death is lighter than a feather
The final conflict between The Amrylin and the Shadow's forces. Moving, epic, leaves you in disbelief, wondering if the Horn of Valere will have a new hero.
I expected to be disapointed in this ending, after almost 15 years of reading and rereading while waiting for the conclusion. I could not fathom the ending satisfying me completely. I was so wrong. This ties everything neatly, while still leaving room for all readers to imagine and wonder. I could not have asked for a better conclusion. Brandon Sanderson has pulled off the impossible, and aptly sewn together Robert Jordan's vision to create a worthy conclusion to this saga. Well F-ing done.
I would totally recommend this book, this series. However, I had to buy the book and read it because it was very disconcerting to hear voices that sounded NOTHING like my mind had assumed all through the first 13 books. I suppose if you listened to the entire series this would not be an issue!
way too different from what my imagination had created.
It would be hard.....
