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.

    Story
    "At last - The End of the trail"
    Would you try another book from Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson and/or Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ?

    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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Cat who walks through Walls


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

    They do a great job with inflection and tone. I really felt emotion from their reading.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, but not 14 movies.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "You will be drawn into the last battle."
    Where does A Memory of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


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

    The game of throngs. Mostly due the game of all the rulers playing their games, while not see the big picture.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading – was your favorite?

    Mat always had humor in his adventures through out the books.


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

    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.


    Did A Memory of Light inspire you to do anything?

    "The end is in sight"

    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!

    "Dissapointed and disturbed."

    I have waited a few days since i finished listening to this story, in order to reflect on it before commenting. I am not sure that i will ever listen to this one again. I have been a big fan of the series since it began. When Robert Jordan died i was more upset than when i have lost close family members. When The Gathering Storm was published and i read it, i was overjoyed and it gave me back something i felt was lost forever. I have never been unhappy with any of the books up until now. I have them all on audio. The books i have read and re-read many times almost to their destruction. I knew that i would be saddened to see the end of the series, but i would never have imagined that I would be angry, frustrated, maddened and annoyed. There was no respect for the characters that have carried the series up to this point!
    Brandon Sanderson did a wonderful job of the last two books, why did he have to ruin this one? He is fond of killing the best characters in his own stories, which is why I don't like his other books much. I intend to write my own book based on this series (not for publish, but for my own enjoyment and perhaps for some of my friends) and i will undo some of what was done!

    I’m not going to spoil the book for anyone by giving away the plot.



    I just wanted to say it finishes of a true epic written by two master story tellers. RIP Robert Jordan thank you for something very special and Brandon I can’t wait for you next book.

    "Oh Nooo It's all over :("

    I cannot believe it’s all over I have invested a massive amount of time over a week of my life listening to this series for it all to end well after 14 books and the death of its original author it was ready to come to a close. I must take my hat off to Brandon Sanderson he pulled it out of the bag bringing one of the longest fantasy series to and so well it must of been hell with soooo many characters stories to tie up. All in all it is an exhilarating and tense read and as always fantastically read by Michael Kramer, Kate Reading.

    "The 'Money' book"

    I'm one of the people who used to re-read the series each time a new book came out, I then had a break of a few years after book 9 came out - I was distraught at the news of Roberts illness and the tragedy of an unfinished masterpiece. At the prompting of a friend, who was singing the praises of the last book, I used up my credits and bought the last 5 books on audible a few weeks ago and have been gorging my myself stupid on the Wheel of Time until finishing the last one a couple of hours ago. Pound for word (or any other measure you care to use) this is easily the best money I've ever spent. A series that I hope to read a number of times again in the future (Light willing!). Right now I'm feeling like an Aes Sedai who's just lost their Warder...but thank you Robert (and Brandon!!).

    "A fitting conclusion"

    What a brilliant conclusion to the epic! The characters we have come to know so well fulfilled their destinies with passion, humour, bravery and humility. All credit to Robert Jordan for his amazing imagination in creating the world of the Dragon Reborn, and due credit and thanks to Brandon Sanderson for adapting his style and weaving the final threads so that the wheel turned as RJ had willed.



    I often listen in my car and there were times I had to pull over to get through some particularly nerve-wracking episodes such as Perrin vs Slayer, Egwene vs M'Hael, Olver vs Trollocs and of course Rand vs Moridin. I cried for the 'friends' who died, revelled in the humour of reluctant hero Mat and almost felt sorry for the Forsaken as their diabolical schemes unravelled.



    Final credit to Kate Redding and Michael Kramer for their reading and characterization - it made listening such a pleasure and added depth to the characters: thank you.

    Really enjoyed this book. The choice of Brandon Sanderson to complete the series is a masterstroke as he's been able to do a splendid job. Narration is also very good, which adds to the experience.

    "Epic finish to a Epic Fantasy series"

    Such a great story and with some suspense moments and some sad ones too. The whole book is a series of scenes in the last battle. A lot of OMG OMG moments. Excellent narration throughout the series.

    Sad to have an ending to this epic, but it was good ending, some people die, some people live, some are damaged, and we are all entertained by the adventures of the various characters in the Wheel of Time.

    I feel utterly drained and bereft, NO MORE WHEEL OF TIME! But what an ending.... Well done to Brandon Sanderson for completing what must have been an enormous task, to get inside someone else's fantasy and write the seamless end to a classic is a bit special to say the least. Wonderful.
