Overall a great story never get me wrong with that...The audio is very well done and helps with the often tedious overwrought introspection and repetitive and needless self-indulgence of the main characters and the verbal diarrhea of others.
There is a great story behind the book that always seems to get lost as characters search there souls, indulge in their own introspection, complain about there plight on and on. The books as a whole start off strong then sink into long periods of diatribe and drivel that does little for character or plot development. The editors/author could have taken out hundreds of pages (hours of listening) and had a much stronger product. I find myself "not listening" to the book as they characters drone on needlessly about nonsense with little regard to the overall plot. Then the plot and action returns and we remember why we love these books. Take the first dozen chapters and the last few and we have a "cant put it down" It is almost like we need more words for the sake of having more words.
One thing I always muse upon is the similarities in plot and characters between the wheel of time and the sword of truth. Reading one is like reading the other.
There are so many great scenes in the series of books...
