    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    What did you like best about A Memory of Light? What did you like least?

    This book was very good in that it wrapped up so many threads, and brought the reader to the end of a series that has lasted for many,many years.

    Some of the conclusions to the various story arks were less than satisfying. At times I thought the writing wasn't up my expectations, but admittedly I had Very high expectations, and the writer had been able to satisfy most of them in the last few books.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Mostly good. Some excellent story telling, that was able to keep me wanting to know what would happen next.


    What about Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s performance did you like?

    Excellent! These two are some of Audio's very best!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, although I can't see how they could do it under 20 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    For me, this was one of the most anticipated audio books in the last 2 years, and I was mostly satisfied.

    Story
    (5509)

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Lead Character, Harry


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Big Battle on the Island


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several, Harry is a very introspective character. Deciding what is the right thing to do when all paths seem to lead to darkness, is compelling.


    Any additional comments?

    You should read some of the earlier books in the Dresden Files first. They will help you understand underlying themes.
