"The 'Money' book"
I'm one of the people who used to re-read the series each time a new book came out, I then had a break of a few years after book 9 came out - I was distraught at the news of Roberts illness and the tragedy of an unfinished masterpiece. At the prompting of a friend, who was singing the praises of the last book, I used up my credits and bought the last 5 books on audible a few weeks ago and have been gorging my myself stupid on the Wheel of Time until finishing the last one a couple of hours ago. Pound for word (or any other measure you care to use) this is easily the best money I've ever spent. A series that I hope to read a number of times again in the future (Light willing!). Right now I'm feeling like an Aes Sedai who's just lost their Warder...but thank you Robert (and Brandon!!).
"A fitting tribute to Robert Jordan."
The triumphant finally to this much loved series.
There were times throughout the series that I felt the books had become stretched but the fast paced action in this book is everything us die hard fans wanted from the series.
Without giving anything away, there are more twists and turns in this book that keep the reader on its toes and causes you to question everyone's motives and actions.
If you haven't already read this series please do if only to get the background infomation to read this book.
A triumph for Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordan.
"story was v.good"
narrators were good. the male was anyway. Just the inflection on "mesaaaaana" was too much for me. the female narrator read it the same whether someone said it or it was in the narrative. and the pronunciation of "stalagmit" & "stalagtight". too much stress put on "a" sounds. Just on this and the last book. the rest of the series was fine. Just stopped me enjoying them as much as I did when I read them.
"Epic from start to finish"
This book is a masterwork. It is the culmination of a true epic. I cried and I cried and I laughed and it was joyous. Mr Jordans vision in its finality brought me to tears in a way I didn't expect.
Death is lighter than a feather. Rest in Peace, Robert Jordan.
Great job taking on someone's book and finishing so well. Loved it so much I had to read it for a 2nd time .
"exceptional book. well read and very enjoyable."
This has been a long journey and one that i am keen to start straight away again. Exceptional performances
"A stunning end to a story spanning years!"
I have been reading THE WHEEL OF TIME books for many years now.
This time however I decided to listen to the last 5 books in the series on Audible.
All I can say is wow!
The reading of every character compliments the whole feel of the story, in ways I wouldn't have thought possible.
When reading books you have of course your very own ideas on how each character should sound. How each character should act.
These guys nailed it, and none more so than in this last book of the phenomenal tale.
The book reaches a crescendo in the telling of good verses evil, Rand verses the dark one, Matt verses Demondred and last but not least Perrin versus Slayer.
It's the book that this epic story deserved to have at its end, and I am so happy to have heard it with Audible.
Highly recommended to everyone and anyone that wants to be taken on a whirlwind of emotions, spanning years in the making.
The Wheel Of Time has won my soul!
Well done Audible!
Well, that was a very satisfying ending, nicely wrapped up, Sanderson writes well, dare I say it...better than RJ (I feel like a traitor). I even liked how the word 'gaped' was thrown in a few times, while it annoyed me with over use in the first eleven books, it maintained continuity in the last three. I'm so impressed.
I will now head over to see what Sanderson titles I can listen to, I've been listening to the WoT books for months and will be slightly bereft.
"Everything must end..... but I wish it hadn't!"
I loved this series. The characters and story are amazing. Like the sword of truth series full of everything you could want in a fantasy saga. What to read / listen to now it's ended?
"fantastic end to the series"
despite being written by someone else, the story flows just as well as all the others. it's good that Robert Jordan's work was completed by someone who had followed the story from start to his passing and helped it reach its perfect conclusion
