Great book, Brandon has done a brilliant job bringing Roberts epic tale to a close. Truly wonderful, loved every minute of this. Kudos to the narrators too, excellent. Only thing now is... What do I do now I've not got the wheel of time to listen too!?
"Brilliant ending loved it all"
Fantastic story of light and darkness. Loved it, can't recommend it enough. Creates a whole new world in your imagination
"Great ending to a fantastic saga"
Despite the change in author the story reads true and ends well.
A great tribute to Robert Jordan and one I'm sure his fans appreciate.
"A Perfect End"
There are so many good, well developed characters, it's almost impossible to choose. Easier to pick my least favourite. Many people will disagree, but I HATED Perrin.
These two narrators are brilliant.
I loved the way Kate Reading played Nynaeve throughout the series.
The epilogue was very moving. I don't know if that was more because I had been on this fantastic journey watching these characters develop and live their lives, and it was all about to be over. I started the series in January, rarely did I stop listening.
Sanderson did a brilliant job, he was the reason I got round to WoT. The series did seem to have gone a bit stale after KoD, but Sanderson picked it right back up again.
"perfect ending to an incredible series"
Brandon Sanderson kept his promise to Robert Jordon's request . He retained all the characters in their natural state of play as pre-written by by Robert Jordon.
ABSOLUTELY, the entire series gave me many many hours of great listening. This has to be one of the best series i have ever listened to
"So sad it had to end"
Epic, Involved, Awesome
Its like a bigger version of any fantasy book
Mat Cauthon and Cadsuan (maybe mispelt)
Towards the end of the final book i found myself thinking that maybe I shouldn't listen to it for a while as once its over its over. I found myself wondering what will fill the void left behind. I need to find something to listen too which will pull me in me as much as the Wheel of Time has done. Its almost like wondering if I will ever love again. Sounds stupid but that is how much I have enjoyed the Wheel of Time.
"Satisfying conclusion to an epic journey"
I signed up for an Audible account just so that I could listen to this audio book. This is the first of the series I have listened to before reading the book.
Michael Kramer, as always, puts in a fantastic performance. His voice sounds a bit gravellier these days (understandable given the length of time taken to finish the series) but is still a joy to listen to. Unfortunately Kate Reading still puts in the occasional wooden performance as if she’s reading word by word from an autocue. After 14 audiobooks I’m still not sure if this is her way of differentiating certain characters (if so, it doesn’t work) but it’s only noticeable for short stretches.
Brandon Sanderson has does a fine job of concluding Robert Jordan’s masterwork. There are plenty of satisfying plot twists. The action proceeds at pace (frenetic in the second half) and yet manages to weave the main character threads into a satisfying conclusion.
At times the battle scenes seemed a bit exhausting: fitting for ‘The Last Battle’ perhaps, but not as enjoyable as the mix of intrigue and action played out in the best of earlier books. However, that’s a minor quibble – if you’ve listened or read the other books, what are you waiting for?
If you’ve just discovered the Wheel of Time then start at the beginning: you’re in for an epic journey!
"Great ending to the fantastic wheel of time series"
It's in the top 10, with most of the other wheel of time books
I can't really compare this book with any other unless it was to compare it to one of the other wheel of time books. Sanderson has done a great job of completing this series on behalf of Robert Jordan
I've listened to all the wheel of time books & Michael Kramer & Kate Reading always bring the books & characters to life. I always enjoy listening to their narration after I've read the book, to see how much more life they bring to the characters than I had in my own reading.
They've made the wheel of time books some of the few books I enjoy more in audio format than in the original book format.
I often laugh & cry with the wheel of time books, especially when a main character died in this book.
The wheel of time should be in all fantasy fans collection
"The end was not what I expected"
I think the series became darker near the finish. I don't complane I knew that same of the people need to die (sense it was the last battle) but I would have left some of the dead alive anyway...
The end was a pit strange but can't say more so I won't give to much spoilers.
Hated the fact that the serie ended.
I spent in a car more than 2 hours per day and this serie has kept me awake in the mornings:)
I was hesitant, I have to admit it, but frankly I think that Brandon Sanderson has done a wonderful job, and his denouement is excellent, satisfying and tying together all the threads.
He did not shirk from allowing significant characters to die, but he also found ways to make them meaningful for those who find it difficult to accept the loss of a major character.
I have thoroughly enjoyed his interpretation of the end of this wonderful saga, and would have to admit that he sidesteps all of the niggling irritations that I worked hard to ignore in earlier books, such as the tendency to repeat things over and over.
