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.

I believe a story should be interesting enough to absorb me, not bore me. I live reality daily. And many times reality is brutal. So I look for a book that makes me forget. It has to absorb me into the pages. Kind of like going on a mini vacation. I like stories that make me laugh. I like stories that make me look for the next episode.
Kudos Brandon for bringing this to an end. I stayed rivited until the last page. Also the narrators Michael and Kate were awesome. Definitely recommend this book.
i like Sci-Fi & Epic Fantasy with a little romance mixed in
The whole book from the beginning to the ending!
all of it
there awesome narrators as always.
no there where light times and dark times though out the story
I did like the readers, they did a great job through all the books. I don't think we'll be getting any more books from Jordan, and I have read one other Sanderson and found it tiring.
The Cat who walks through Walls
They do a great job with inflection and tone. I really felt emotion from their reading.
Yes, but not 14 movies.
The predictable end to a very long series. I thought the creation of the world the story takes place in very creative and intriguing but the writing was a little long winded and a little boring. The Author put too much detail into each book. I really don't need to know the name of every sword form, or every song, etc that a character would say or do.
I was very disappointed in the ending. The hero that rides along into the sunset is the biggest cliche in literature or western movies! It was awfully unimaginative.
Very high. Some of the books may have been too slow at times, to place the detail they had. Now the closure of those hours of listening comes together with every minute a pleasure to listen to with excitement.
The game of throngs. Mostly due the game of all the rulers playing their games, while not see the big picture.
Mat always had humor in his adventures through out the books.
Yes, it was tough to stop and wait to start up again
Now I can see that they drug this storyline out only to sell more books.
They are the best.
Read short stories
Robert Jordan would turn in his grave.....20 some hrs of battle.....Matt and Perin turned into comic relief and a superman accordingly. Overall it was an ending...
I need some C8H10N4O2
I like many have waited for this day to come, I first picked up the first book of this series when I was just a kid and I have read and re-read this series numerous times always waiting for the next book to be released.
For all those fans out there, this book does not disappoint, everything comes full circle, and we can only marvel at the genius of Robert Jordan in conceptualising this whole world and its many characters.
For all those that have thought about reading the series, I urge you to start. Ahead of you lies many, many hours of pure listening bliss. Enjoy!
Say something about yourself!
To Everyone I know.
How Brandon took a story I love, and made it even better.
They are like old friends at this point. Can't wait for Stormlight 2.
they did a great job with this series
Sanderson should have not made it 2 books the last was wayyyyyyyyyyy over dine
