    The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of. Now, the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

    Tony Deleeuw says: "Great Series, Great Readers"
    "Book 2 of the Wheel of time series"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Great Hunt to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed both print and audio versions.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Great Hunt?

    The hunt for the dagger.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could listen to this book in one sitting then I would. But 26+ hours is a bit much.

    Story
    (2709)

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"
    "Not my cup of tea..."

    Story
    What disappointed you about Snow Crash?

    How many ways can you describe something and then describe again just because.


    What was most disappointing about Neal Stephenson’s story?

    I couldn't get past the 2nd hour. So I didn't finish this but all I kept thinking was where is the story. All I am hearing sounds like someone actually just running semi-related sentences together. Kind of like someone telling a story with more rabbit trails than story.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I thought the performance was pretty good. I would listen to him again just not anything by this author.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I didn't get far enough into it to find out if it was worth anyone's time, I feel like I lost IQ points just listening to this.

    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.

    Amazon Customer says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."
    "A great book to finish the series."

    What does Michael Kramer and Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoy how they break up the story and read different parts.
