The entire series has been very well written and read . . . but with the ending of Book 4, Ms. Britain had me hanging, could not belive how she ended it, especially when I had no idea that there was a Book 5 in the works. Audible gave no indication that Book 4 was not the end of the series. For all to know - Ms, Britain has sent Book 5 to publisher, I await with great anticipation.
At the out set the premise of the story sounded interesting, and at the beginning it was ... but by half way through the storyline became tedious and I had to force myself to finish. If I had wanted a lesson on world micro economics I would have taken a course.
In the end I came to understand the philosopy of where the author was going, but the trip to there was hard. The story plot jumped around way too much for my taste, found it boring and a drudge at too may times. Also, I was never sure who the main characters were, still not. The most redeaming part and the only reason I slogged my way through was the perfomance of the narrators.
Dove-tailed nicely into the ending of book one, thanks for keeping the same readers! The story had a few dry spots, but for a book this length the organinztion and flow went well. The new characters were well fleshed out and interesting, and the old, they also stayed interestin. I now await for book three. I only hope it is available in months not years.
For one who is not versed or trained in music, I found Professor Messengers' lectures not only informative and enlightening, but also quite entertaining. I have listened to them twice and will venture into them many more times.
The book started out with some really good character hooks, the discriptions of locations and the technical gadgets were well written and easily visualized. A large part of that was from the high quality and profesionalism of John Lee. My major complaint, and it greatly damaged my appreciation of the story, was by the ending. You fall off the end of the World! In a word it is STUPID!
Having finally finished the series I can now give my opinion of all three. Upon the completion of Book 1; a finely woven story and plot set up combined with a superb narration. I was then compelled to move to Book 2; once again a finely woven tale and the narration did not falter from Book 1. Now completely hooked, I had to do Book 3. There was no let down on performance or story, in fact Mr. Sullivan slipped a unique ending to the series. I strongly recommend the whole series, and once stated hang on because it will be a fun ride.
Having first read the book about twenty years ago, I found that this time having two new and well polished voices present Jordan's works has allowed me to view the tale with a new and deeper understanding. Kudos and a well done to Kate Reading and Michael Kramer.
