    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."

    Story

    For many the ending of the Wheel of Time seems to leave a lot of loose ends. But, I think that was the point. My feelings at the end of this series are like those I feel at the sunset of a great day. I might become nostalgic for the light of the sun, but I look forward to creating a camaraderie with the stars.

    The moral of this story is "choice" or "free will." You may choose to criticize this story. But, I ask you to open your minds to the uncertainty of life (whether it is in a wheel or not).

    Thank you Michael Kramer and Kate Reading for sticking with this series for 20 years. Thank you Robert Jordan for giving me great books to listen to while I was young and struggling with dyslexia. Your love for audio books changed my life. Thank you Brandon Sanderson for finishing the series to give us all closure.

    P.S. Brandon Sanderson, Way of Kings book 2 coming out anytime soon? I'd rather not wait another 20 years.

    The year is 3326. Nigel Sheldon, one of the founders of the Commonwealth, receives a visit from the Raiel - self-appointed guardians of the Void, the enigmatic construct at the core of the galaxy that threatens the existence of all that lives. The Raiel convince Nigel to participate in a desperate scheme to infiltrate the Void. Once inside, Nigel discovers that humans are not the only life-forms to have been sucked into the Void. The humans trapped there are afflicted by an alien species of biological mimics.

    "Blah"

    Story

    Unless you already know you like Hamilton, this is not a good book.

    It's invented technical language, lack of character development, and unimaginative creepiness makes this book about as appealing as a frog dissection.

    There is no humor.

    There are no life lessons.

    The narrator has a good voice, but I think it is odd for a man with such a deep voice to be reading a book told from a woman's perspective.

    You want a story about being stranded in space with creepy aliens? Go watch the Dr. Who episode with David Tennent on Mars with the water creatures.
