The book was as expected, entertaining, lite, funny, relatively smart, it is basically a riff on the show.
Intriguing piece of meta-fiction, to think about that the book is based on the fictional characters of "Castle" the TV series, yet the characters are not the exact same as they re on TV, because these are the fictionalized version of them.
Very well read, in a kind of Maltese Falcon, film noir tone. All in all a great book.
I haven't read the printed version.
The reconnecting of Rand and his father.
I have listened to all the other Wheel of Time books.
That's very likely impossible, can't do forty hours in one sitting at my age. However, though quite good, the book has some heavy moments that I needed to take breathers for.
This is a very good ending to an enduring series that had its ups and downs, there were a couple things that felt phoned in or extraneous, but it's a big series to finish. All in all, I was satisfied with the book and it's ending of this great series. That being said, either the text that the readers used, especially Kate Reading, was faulty, or both the producer and the reader were not paying attention, she often misplaces the names, Thom, Tam, and Taim, causing one to be forced out of the experience of the story to assess who is actually being talked about. Thus was the most glaring area of faulty production but not the only one. The pronunciation of names is inconsistent, both within the book and definitely within the series, I know it's been a long time from start to finish, but surely a quick review of how one said names a book or two back would be in order. However, the emotion and tone conveyed by both readers is exemplary, and I found the book as a whole enjoyable. Well done Jordan, Sanderson, Reading and Kramer, I know for me personally, the Dragon will be born again on the winds of time, and the ones and zeros of my Audible app. Peace favour your sword.
