Never read the print, but love the voice characterizations and wouldnt be able to read this now with out those coming into the mix.
I love how the political flavor hits, but I like the simple twists. You can see it coming.
I love old mother yackley and how her and the lion would banter, my favorite would have been at the beginning when she comes out and they all had thought her dead.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Dragon Clock!
I have not read the 4th book yet but I enjoyed the Lion character the best thus far.
Empire Strikes back of the Series
I love the transformation of the characters in this book. I think this book was were evil becomes evil and makes it presence known and that each of the main characters understands who they are and what they are to become, whether they choose to fight it or concede to the wheel and follow their path.
I liked the sword battle towards the end. It made Rand unstand what he has to do.
The narrators breath life into the story that helps make you get really invested into the story.
This is a great series.
Yes, great narrators and awesome story.
I really am starting to like Matt. His is the dark hero of the story.
They bring life to the book.
Felt the pain that Rand has due to his destiny getting in the way of what he wants.
This series is awesome.
Who'd of thunk!
This is unique for me. I don't normally read books like this, but it was on the cheap through Audible so I thought I would give it a shot. So glad I did. the Author is a great orator and was very easy to listen to. The books went fast and was super informational. I walked a way packed with knowledge about the brain.
There was no characters. This was a informative book regarding the brain.
The adventure with brains.
Great narrator and author. Felt almost like I was in my favorite professors lecture. The author/narrator was super engaging.
The other Wheel of Time Books, The story is very much like most of the stories of this genre. Down trodden kid meets destiny and must over come a great evil. The difference is all about the story and the characters, which Jordan does a great job bringing to life with their unique personalities. Then the narration gives them a voice. Great listen.
This is just what I have come to expect from these two they are phenomenal.
Yes, it is hard to put down.
Great second books gets you really invested into the main characters.
The narrators nail it.
In this book I liked Perrin the most. I found his story to be the most enjoyable.
They make the characters come to life and keep the
The journey begins.
This is the epic beginning of the series. It took me long time to actually get enough time to fouc on listening to this, but once I got into it I could not stop. I would find myself taking the longer route or sitting in my car to see where this was going to go.
I think the story was ok, but the author decided to narrate. Gregory can write but he cannot narrate. The characters were flat. The other issue is if you listen to the first book and the life that was given to the characters you cant listen to this one without being overly confused and disappointed.
The most was the idea of the son picking up the mantel even after being shunned by his mother. The least was the fact he was so driven to find the girl in the begging that its hard to swallow that shuts off through the middle of the book and all of sudden pops back on at the end.
He made the characters that we had come to love in the first book sound and feel completely different and in some cases they felt almost like he was just reading to read.
The under city and his lust to find the girl in the begging. I don't think that it drives the story.
Story was ok, narrator kills it though.
The idea that nothing was off limits. Most of the time authors brush over descriptions that are perhaps uncomfortable and taboo. Not Gregory he describes those topics at length.
Sometimes the pungent descriptions were too much and distracting from the story.
Yes, he is a great voice actor. In my head I have this white bearded old man. Its hard and awkward at first to hear him describe some of the book.
I would say the shock was just the wording of things after half way through you get over that though.
This is a creepy perspective into the land of oz. I love the creative thought behind it.
Yes, the narrators are fabulous.
This one is a great back story allows you to see how some of the power players in the story got there.
Right on par with their excellent narrating, they bring the characters to life.
See how it all began!
This is a great book to pop in right after book 6. Not going to spoil why but this is a great filler after that book. It also allows you to take a breather from the series.
Pretty gloomy all the way through..good detail just hard to believe that if you have that much depression in your life you would still be optimistic.
Perhaps, I grabbed this one from a recommendation from NPR book club suggestions and while it is not generally within my listening scope that I choose was a fast listen.
I thought the narrator did a good job separating characters, but lacked emotion at time when portraying some of them
Think about the notion of guiding your own path.
Not my kind of book but it was not bad.
