    Story
    (3924)

    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.

    Mike Koch says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."
    "Narration No-No's"

    Where does A Memory of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 25%.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tieing up all the loose ends was very well done. I had trouble turning off my book to do other things.


    What three words best describe Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s performance?

    GOOD, FAMILIAR but LACKING continuity with prior books.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    When a new book comes out in a series, I try to relisten to at least some of the preceeding books. I am always amazed then to find that the same narrators suddenly have assigned different voices, pronunciations and accents to characters they have established so firmly in previous books. It seems that everytime I am totally entranced by the audiobook, one of those changed characters shows up and breaks the spell. Perhaps Kate and Michael should familiarize themselves with their own characterizations. All in all I enjoyed it but the change is a Narration NO-NO.
