    In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times best seller The Shadow Rising, Robert Jordan again plunges us into his extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world.

    "Men vs. Women"
    Overall

    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.

    In this charming sequel to Anne of Green Gables, the unpredictable red-headed heroine returns for more wonderful adventures. When Anne Shirley first came to the beautiful Canadian town of Avonlea, she was a mischievous, talkative orphan who captured the hearts of everyone she met. Now, a few years later, Anne is a young woman with new dreams.

    "Slow Talking Narrator"
    Overall

    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.

    As the Wheel turns, the winds of fate roil across the land. Rand al 'Thor struggles to unite the nations for the Last Battle when the Dark One will break free into the world to spring the snares laid by the immortal Forsaken for unwary humankind. The White Tower in Tar Valon, under the Amyrlin Elaida, has decided that Rand must be controlled immediately.

    "Good but a little confusing"
    Overall

    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.

    "The middle"
    Overall

    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.

    Overall

    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.

    The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out in The Shadow Rising, book four of the Wheel of Time, as The Shadow is rising to cover humankind. In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve. Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn.

    "2 Narrators"
    Overall

    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.

    The story begins with an investigation into some strange reports of an "opera ghost", legendary for making the great Paris opera performers ill-at-ease when they sit alone in their dressing rooms. Some allege to have seen the ghost in evening clothes moving about in the shadows. Nothing is done, however, until the disappearance of Christine during her triumphant performance.

    Overall

    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.
