I know the story because I own the comics, disappointed with the end, I feel he should have ended this one earlier and finish the story once and for all in the last book. It was amazing and I really enjoyed it, but I much rather had been left in absolute misery for all of the characters, in contrast to the roller coaster at the end. Can't say much more without spoiling anything.
So after spending countless hours developing a relationship with the characters and the intonations of their voices I was forced to listen to this George Takada (Sulu) sounding guy and it stunk. Very bad form to force this on me, it is so bad I may just buy the book and read it myself with the voices that were established before.
To be fair to John Lee he does not do a bad job and maybe he would do well in another book. But I feel like I am cheating on Roy here and I may just read this book. I wish I could just get my money back for this!!!
The book is well paced, well written, and just a joy to experience. I am glad my buddy recommended this to me after I turned him on to the Ender series.
It is amazing that Branden Sanderson could do such an amazing job and picking up the pieces Robert left behind and making it his own yet staying faithful to the series and the fans, btw for those of you have not figured it out, Book 12 means it is suggested you read 1-11 before taking this one on, It was appreciated that every little detail was not explained in the book for the sake of the folks who were not up to date
It was a nice book a little shorter than what I had anticipated, it was nice to see how it all started, except I was hoping they would have told Tam's story and how she came to know Rand was the Dragon, either way it was a nice book to fill the gaps
The series was well written but a childrens book it was not. Call me the authority if you like but if you are looking for a good childrens book stick to Potter. Hard to get into details without spoilers but in the end, lets just say I would not want my 12 year old doing what this one was over in the Muleffa fields.
The book dragged on and got a little boring until the second half. I could not stop listening to the story because it was so compelling. Everything is tied in very well and I enjoyed it very much.
