    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."
    "Meh.."

    Story
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Consolidated some of the story lines. Killed off more of the major characters like Perrin. Allowed Rand to kick ass. I think the author(s) overcompensated for Rand's behavior in the Gathering Storm and made his character a pansy over the last 2 books. This ruined his arc for me. So much so that I found myself rolling my eyes at the end of his "fight" with the dark one.


    Was A Memory of Light worth the listening time?

    meh..


    Any additional comments?

    Sanderson's style is darker and more direct than Jordan's. So the change in pace is almost too much when you read a chapter that was written by Jordan prior to his death.
