I have liked all of Jordan's book including this 5th book. The only complaint I have is constant reference that Men think Women are stupid and Women think Men are stupid. I think it is safe to say the there are times when we all share the this viewpoint but he uses it ALL the time in this 5th book. I also had some trouble following all the various path the many characters take. On the whole I have enjoyed Jordan's books and I will buy all the rest if they show up. It so involved a story you can't stop at Book 5. He makes the characters so real you can't help but want to know what happens.
I enjoyed the book but the Narrator was slow in her reading and kept taking long pauses. She either ended a sentence or a paragraph I could never figure out. This book is not as good as the first but I would recommend getting the book, just pick a different narrator.
I like the Wheel of Time series but sometimes I feel confused when he switches to following different characters. He is following quite a few different ones. I like the narrators. They do a great job and it fits with the theme of the story. I also think it helps to break up the jumps in characters.
I am beginning to learn that the middle which has not the excitment of introducing new people nor climax of the whole story can be a bit to wade through. The 2nd part is not as interesting as the first since it is only still setting up all the is to come in the end. I did still enjoy part 2 and am eagerly awaiting my renewal date so I can get the 3rd and final part.
I bought the movie and when I realized it was a classic I really wanted to read it. I was a little worried about the narrator based on previous reviews but I wanted a long classic so I purchased the first part. The reader is not the best in the very beginning but very soon I was so wrapped up in the story that it not longer bothered me. I am very glad I picked the longest version I could find at audible. I really would have missed a lot on a shorter version.
I did not realize when I purchased this audiobook that it had a female and a male narrator. This was new to me. Although it seemed a little strange to be switching back and forth it actually goes with the theme of Jordan's books. I did like both narrators and thought they did a good job. I am only disappointed not all 10 books are in audible's collection.
I was quite impressed by this book. I did not know that this was a book and was eager to listen to the full unabriged story. The story was quite fascinating and I was eager to listen straight through without stopping. The narrator Ralph Cosham did a good job narrating the story. He has a nice clear voice and was able to make the different characters stand out from each other. I really enjoyed this title and would recommend it to others.
