I heard more about Nyneave and Lan.
The relationship between Rand and Min is better defined.
I'm getting used to Michael Kramer finally. He sounded too much like a mid-western boy to my ears at first. Kate does a fine job all the way through.
There are some poignant moments especially around Nyneave.
I probably would not listen to it again, unless I decided to go through the entire series again.
The pacing is similar to the five books before this.
Yes, I've listened to the prior books. The readers' performan is very similar, and I'm finally getting used to the voices. Initially I was very unhappy with Michael Kramer's rendition of Rand's voice - it sounded too Midwestern to my ears.
Nothing really stands out.
Well worth the listen (and read too if you want to read the book). Barbara Tuchman's history of Europe in the 1300's will add to your understanding of Europe's origins and continuing entanglements. It's long, and engrossing. The narration by Nadia May is superb - I could listen to her for days.
The book covers the lurid, fascinating story of Claudius, accidental emporer of Rome in the Imperial age. Lively story, with a decent base in history (although he does demonize Livia). The narration by Derek Jacobi really brings it to life, as he played Claudius in the television series (BBC I think).
