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.

    "It'll be missed"

    What a great final novel! In itself and as the culmination of a 20 year series.

    This is an incredibly powerful story. The writing is excellent, and the performance is without equal.

    Thank you all!

    "Amazing Ending"

    It doesn't get any better. Epic in all it entails.
    Start at book 1, and listen to the finish over the course of a month.
    A+++

    Story
    "It's as if the book was sent from Heaven"
    What did you love best about A Memory of Light?

    The book was superb, I felt like a gift was given to me, one that brought pure joy and entertainment on a level that is rarely rivaled in our lives.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    How could one character be chosen out of so many that we grew to love thru the years of reading this series. I would say that Matt's evolution in this book was the most enjoyable to me, yet there are so many others. Egwene was not as strong as in book 13, but what happened to her in this book brought some of the strongest emotion I've had from a book or movie.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many to choose...... One favorite was the bravery of Talmanes in the battle of Caemlyn.


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

    The individual fights by Galad and Gawyn against Demandred


    Any additional comments?

    The best book I have ever read. A series that can not be out done, ever.

    Story
    "Can't help but feel a bit disappointed."

    I know that this was the last battle, but I felt there was a bit too much battle. I felt like there was a failure to bring closure to the characters we had come to love. I wanted Elayne and Rand to hold their babies, and I wanted to see at least a tiny glimpse of the future they all gave up so much to ensure. It felt cut off too soon, and without much emotion. It seemed to be a book about the mechanics of battle, and not the scope of emotion you come to expect from these most loved characters. I understand the task that Brandon Sanderson took on was not an easy one, and no blame can be placed on him because given the circumstances I think he did a great job. In the end, I feel like things were wrapped up almost a little too neatly.

    "An ending"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Memory of Light to be better than the print version?

    Yes, on account that the voice actors are excellent, they add to the story and the emotion. Also I have a long commute so listening is the much safer option.


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

    It is a part of the Wheel of time series, the last book, so you should probably start a bit earlier in the series. It's also has similarities to Brandon Sanderson's other works, Mistborn a bit, The Way of Kings more so.


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

    The movie that makes the battle with Mordor look like kids playing with sticks.


    Any additional comments?

    A beautiful ending to an epic saga.

    "Happy to Say Good Bye"
    What made the experience of listening to A Memory of Light the most enjoyable?

    The epic scope of the book, there were times i found myself trying to figure out what Matt was up too in the battle, or how Perrin would kill slayer. I love both Jordan and Sanderson and they always keep me needing to know whats next!


    Any additional comments?

    I have always love fantasy books the first series i ever read and feel in love with was the belgariad by David eddings. I knew i was captured when it ended and I almost cried cause i felt i lost some of my friends, and that is exactly how i felt with this series 20 years later as an adult. There are no Spoilers here I hope any one who reads this understand how great these books are and how much of a joy they are. Thank you Sanderson and Jordan!!!!

    "Excellent finish"
    What made the experience of listening to A Memory of Light the most enjoyable?

    The narrators are my favorites, it's hard to beat Kramer and Reading for telling a great tale.


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

    I was looking forward to getting back to this book each evening and though I wanted to keep listening, I also didn't want the story to end.


    Any additional comments?

    This was one of the best fantasy tales I have read or listened to, and there have been quite a few. I am amazed at how seamlessly Brandon Sanderson picked up the story from Robert Jordan and continued with the same voice. This final volume of the series tied up the loose ends and offered a very satisfying end to the series. I've been waiting so long for this final book I guess I feel a little regretful that now it's over. Maybe one of these days I'll just begin it all again with book one.

    "Amazing finally !!! Thrilling kept me guessing !!"
    Would you listen to A Memory of Light again? Why?

    Oh yes it was awesome and had so much i had to hear it again !!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I finished "A Memory of Light" today .. the last book of the wheel of time .. and wept .. Robert Jordan has left his legacy in good hands with Brandon Sanderson and must be smiling on us from heaven .. the greatest story I have ever read has come to an end .. and left me with so many memories .. I would read it again . All 14 books .. it would take me a year ..


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

    Great voice actors they became the book

    "Best Book Ever..."
    Where does A Memory of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    1st


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

    Lan fighting Demondred


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

    Jim Dale used to be my favorite narrator, but ever since I started listening to A Wheel of Time, Michael Kramer has grown on me. He is now my favorite narrator.


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

    Yes! But it would be a little hard to stay up for 42 hours straight... I guess if you listen to it in 2x you might be able to do it.

    "A great way to end !!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Memory of Light to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The audio makes this book come to life. The narrators are the best and have caught R.J. Vision.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In 40 hours you can only tie up and answer so many questions, but many were answered. Loose ends brought together. Sanderson's writing and creativity amplified R.J. The pace of the final book was great. I never wandered while listening.


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

    They are the best. tones and voices - so memorable. I can hear Lan's voice right now.


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

    41 hours went by in a flash. I devoured it in a week.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it.
