    "Wonderful - (but incomplete)"

    I've listened to Michael & Kate read all 12 books, some books more than 3 times. It was so odd to hear "Rand's voice" answering questions about reading books :)
    This interview is another great snippet into the world that Jordan created but has been enhanced by artists like Michael and Kate.

    thanks

    P.S. The interview cuts off abruptly, in mid sentence at 12 minutes. Audible, please re-record the complete interview.

    "I understand it comes at no cost but.."

    Where is the rest of the Audio? This is something I really wanted to hear and it came to such an abrupt end, rather unfortunate; still worth a listen at any rate.

    "Cuts off!"

    The audio cuts off at 12 minutes! I listened to the original posting of this on Tor.com, but it's no longer there. There is a lot of great material in the rest of the interview, and it's really interesting to listen to. Dear Audible: please fix this so the whole interview is there.

    "what a delight to get to know the narrators"

    I had no idea the narrators of these stories were married, and the knowledge brings a whole new dimension to the interplay between the female and male voices in the books. I also loved getting to know them a little bit better, and hearing about some of the challenges of reading these stories.

    "Where's the rest?"

    The interview was just getting good and then it ends mid sentence? Please re-post complete interview.
    Thanks!

    "Truncated"

    I was very intrigued when I saw this become available - after having listened to Kramer/Reading's excellent narration of the entire series, I had been growing more curious about the thoughts of the narrators.

    The interview was interesting enough - though a bit repetitive. Most frustrating is that it abruptly comes to an end, and seems quite incomplete. It's almost like it was cut short, perhaps with further questions and answers left out.

    "Interesting!"

    It was so fun to hear their normal voices and what they thought of the series. Just a shame that it cut off after 12 minutes.

    I am the Princess of Everything .. in my own mind! (we can be whatever we want in our own minds! And audio books take me to places I could never truly imagine on my own.)

    "Good for being free and short!"
    Any additional comments?

    Sure it cuts off short - it's free!! But from the short excerpt, you get enough information to see if you like Wilson's work, or not. And I think she's great!

    "Very good interview"

    This was a faster moving and interesting interview. Very good dialogue and interaction. I want to read this book, as I have not read this author before.

    "Good"

    These people really enjoy their work, some they make me want to read a little bit more about the story.
