    As the Wheel turns, the winds of fate roil across the land. Rand al 'Thor struggles to unite the nations for the Last Battle when the Dark One will break free into the world to spring the snares laid by the immortal Forsaken for unwary humankind. The White Tower in Tar Valon, under the Amyrlin Elaida, has decided that Rand must be controlled immediately.

    Overall

    I've thoroughly enjoyed each of the books in the series prior to this one. However, for a book titled, "Lord of Chaos", there isn't much happening. The first sixteen hours has exactly one thing happen that moves the story forward, and that only takes about ten minutes. Like another reviewer said, he repeats characteristics over and over, and frequently goes into nauseating details that neither enrich your perception of the world he has created nor do they advance the story.

    It seems like Jordan wandered through this one, and I can't help but wonder if it seemed more boring because of the absence of two of the main characters that exited in the previous book.

    Like the other books in the series, the readers are fantastic.

    The characters introduced in the best-selling Honor Bound - Marine aviator Cletus Frade, Army demolitions expert Anthony Pelosi, and communications genius David Ettinger - encounter intrigue in Buenos Aires in April 1943.

    "Great Book, Horrible Narrator. Beware."
    Overall

    I just don't get it. I'm trying to figure out who would like to listen to this narrator. Perhaps someone new to the English language? Each word is spoken slowly, and every sentence seems to follow the same cadence. I whole-heartedly recommend, as did another reviewer, that you listen to a sample before purchasing.

    I have disregarded comments about poor narration in the past, but you really must heed this warning. When narrators fall down, it is usually in certain types of character voices. While that happens here as well (several Nazis sound like 8 year old girls), the basic parts of the text are painful to listen to.

    How do I know it's a great book? I've read it before. Now I'm faced with an audio book that I likely can't listen to past the third chapter.
