Yes, there are going to be things I missed the first time & I've listened to each of the other books in this series at least twice each :)
Also there will come a time when I want to walk through this world again, from start to finish.
Favorites charactersssss! Naturally Rand Al Thor, as he is THE main character, but also Perrin, Mat & Avienda. Secondly Eqwene, Elaine, Nyneve & Lan.
Yes, but this series is the one I'm most familiar with them. I enjoy their narration, although I found that the accents & tones they used with particular characters was not as constant in this book as it had been in past books. Also I would have liked to have them team up a little differently, I would have Kramer voice only & all the male thoughts (narrations) & Reading do the same for the females.
This book was the final battle for the powers of good against evil, all the characters that I'd come to know & love would be in that fight. Therefore I knew that not everyone would make it through alive & so I sat on the edge of my seat, almost holding my breath, as time & time again one or another of them came close to death.
This entire book is the climax of the series & couldn't have been done better!
It is a wonderful ending to The Wheel of Time series and has not left me wondering what will happen next. Nor has it left me wishing that another series will spring from this one.
Kudos to Robert Jordan for leaving notes & instructions on how he wanted the final story(s) to work & to Brandon Sanderson for stepping in so well that you can't tell what parts are his additions.
This book was a little slow to start & the chapters were very short in the begining, but as the story grew so did the suspenece & I found myself sitting on the edge. Well done!
It helped me decide to not purchase the book at this time.
I'm dissappointed that Sanderson starts other lengthy series before finishing the ones he's already working on. Whatever happened to "The Way of Kings"??
I've already read & listened to audiobooks for Mortal Instruments & Clockwork Angel and enjoyed them. Understanding that they are directed at a young adult audience & I enjoy that as a change, so yes I will read/listern to another Cassandra Clare book.However I will NOT listen to another audiobook narrated by Heather Lind as she makes all the characters sound whinny & petulant!!
I think all books of a series should try to keep the same narrator throughout whenever possible.
I always relisten to books in a series to get refocused on the timeline before the next one coming out.
Dallas & Rourke are growing more & more comfortable with their relationship & making things work together. I'm so glad that they can skip the arguments as to how involved Rourke should or should not be in the investigations. Also he realises that she must do things on her own without him hovering. It is a very comfortable fit now, yet without feeling like something is missing.
The very end! (I won't spoil it by telling you why ;p)
It was a cute little short story & I will remember this author & series for future purchases.
I liked the referrence to Twilight star Robert Pattinson :)
So happy to have James Marsters back! John Glover did a good job on Ghost Story, but it's like wearing your favorite old slippers rather than the new ones :)
The anger & frustration of Harry's friends over his assumed death & now his position as Winter Knight, has caried over from Ghost Story, but understandably so. Even the readers of this book are going to wonder if (or for how long) Harry can keep the beast inside.
Harry is once again thrust into numerous situations which must each be solved immediatly or the world (or at least his friends & family) will come to an end. He begins to realise that the early days of his career, although slow & unexciting. were a lot easier!
I'm so glad to have Thomas back in the story & loved their reunion & the banter they care on.
Jim Butcher ALWAYS makes me laugh & cry!
I hope that the next book takes place very shortly after this one, so that we see how things go between the Winter Knight & the Winter Lady.
The story was similar to the tv show which was good. A few chuckles and a good story. However the narration was very poor, I almost stopped listening. The narrator used the same 'excitement-building' tone if the character was was doing something exciting or something mundane. Also there was little or no voice change between characters so it was hard to understand which character was talking & sometimes difficult to tell if is was narration or conversation.
I am glad I perserveered as the narrator either improved or I got used to him by the next book.
As a read alone this would be a good book, but reading the first 3 Mistborn books first would help understanding of the powers & the world in which this story takes place. I listened to the original books some time ago, so I relistened to them before purchasing Alloy of Law. Where the first books were rather insense because of the serious condition of all civilization, this book is lighter because it deals with only some of the people. Alloy of Law is still full of adventure & suspense, but it has a great deal of humour. The character of Wayne had me laughing out loud as I listened to this book.
As always Michael Kramer does an excellent job of individualizing the characters voices & keeping accents true throughout the book.
I did not want interuptions while listening to this book! Not only was I wrapped up in the characters of Carrie McClelland & the Keith's, but of the characters in Carrie's story. Rosalyn Landor did a wonderful job on the narration. She did a such great job on the accents, that I wish I could move to Scottland to hear it daily :)
This is a story of an author writting a story & I really enjoy having the 2 stories building simultaneously. I am a fan of Nevada Barr & well remember her book Flashback for having a story within a story. It creates a double intrigue.
I have English blood on both sides of my family & enjoy reading historical fictions of the UK to understand more of my ancestor's past. This is the second book I've listened to recently that has involved the Jacobite uprising in its' storyline & now I understand what that was about.
I am already looking for more titles by this author & this narrator!
