Publisher's Summary

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. With The Gathering Storm (Book 12) and Towers of Midnight (Book 13) behind him, both of which were number-one New York Times hardcover best sellers, Sanderson now re-creates the vision that Robert Jordan left behind.

Edited by Jordan’s widow, who edited all of Jordan’s books, A Memory of Light will delight, enthrall, and deeply satisfy all of Jordan’s legions of listeners.

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, May yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

    "Great ending to a Great Series"

    This was an excellent conclusion to the Wheel of Time Series. The book is great and does a fantastic job closing many of the hanging threads yet not getting caught up in a 200 page post mortem of the story. Excellent performance - the voices are great. I really enjoyed this.

    Story
    "Thought it would be better"

    After 13 books to set it up, the final book (?) left too much out, while carrying redundancy to new levels. Many of the characters were just brushed off in this final chapter and the descriptions that were given were so redundant that I wanted to yell at the radio playing it. Michael Kramer does a wonderful job with the story, but alas, Kate Reading once again dragged down the entire performance as she has done from book one. It has been my belief from the first book that Kramer should have done it solo.
    I was also amazed that the fight with the "Dark One" which was so setup from book one, turned into almost a nothingness in the total landscape of the book. Some characters were shown to be almost stupid in their actions to try and achieve a story line that was being reached for by Sanderson.
    Overall, I expected more from this book, and in the end, saw it as nothing more then a stepping stone for a "follow up" series.

    "A Fitting End to a Great Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Memory of Light to be better than the print version?

    I'm not sure I think the audio version is better. I do know I don't have time to sit and read. I do all my listening driving in the car and working out. That's when I have time!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the twist at the end.I never in a thousand years would have guessed. it was perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    Sad to see the end of the Wheel of Time. Still I'm glad Brandon Sanderson got to finish the writing. The last few books in the series before he came were very bogged down. Good finish!

    Story
    "Finally, an ending!"
    Where does A Memory of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story is really good, the narrators so-so.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Memory of Light?

    The end of Rand.


    Did Michael Kramer and Kate Reading do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I found their narration ok, but not memorable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Get ready for a LOOOOONG movie!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm happy the series, after 20+ years, has finally ended!

    Story
    "Epic Conclusion"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Memory of Light to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I think I would. This is the first entry I listened to rather than read, and I was amazed that I had been pronouncing most of the strange names incorrectly for the past two decades.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mattrim Cauthon is probably everyone's favorite character. Who doesn't like Han Solo?


    What about Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s performance did you like?

    There are a ton of different characters and keeping them all straight is a challenge. Kate's interpretation of the Seanchan was especially interesting to me.


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

    Yes, I'd say so, although I wouldn't have stamina. 45 hours it is an epic!

    "One of the best stories I have heard"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This entire series is amazing with two readers you feel the characters come to life. Read book 1 i bet you too with find yourself reading this book too.


    What other book might you compare A Memory of Light to and why?

    Well I think that Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson did an awesome job closing this series and if i had to compare it i think i would go with Brent Weeks Shadow trilogy as it too has the main character adjusting to his role and becoming what he needs to become.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have heard all 13 of the books prior to this in the series and they do an awesome job they really make you involved with the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many i often found myself laughing do to a comment or action in the book (sorry no spoilers)


    Any additional comments?

    RIP ROBERT JORDAN - You left an amazing story behind I will certainly share this with friends and family.

    Story
    "Finally, the conclusion in all it's splendor!"
    Where does A Memory of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    AMOL is one of the best audio books I've read, but then again I can say that about any of Jordan's work. Kate Reading and Michael Cramer are two of the best readers in the business.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Memory of Light?

    When Egwene died.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are far too many to choose one. If your a long time WOT fan, you should enjoy every moment.

    "Engaging and surprising"
    What did you love best about A Memory of Light?

    Unexpected plot twists how some characters that we didn't know much about get more fleshed out.


    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised by the ending. I liked how the struggle with the dark one resolved but not all that happened afterward was clear.

    Story
    "Is That It????"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    A well done story right up to the end. But thats just it. It ends without closer. Basicaly all lives happily ever after, thats it the end. Is Brandon going to continue the story on? I would think not but who knows.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The fall of five by Piticus Lore


    What does Michael Kramer and Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Life


    Was A Memory of Light worth the listening time?

    Yes but I wish it went on to say what happened to all the charecters after the last battle.
