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 regularly recommend this whole series to friends and this book is a standout among a group of already epic books.
It's difficult to compare this book to any other. It is the best possible conclusion to the best book series ever written. The closest thing I can think of is the completion of "The Dark Tower" series by Stephen King. Rarely is such an epic tale pulled together with such clarity and vision.
Michael Kramer and Kate Reading have once again done a fantastic job of bringing hundreds of characters to life. Their talent is truly unequaled.
There are dozens of very moving moments in this book. Common people in uncommon circumstances doing the right thing simply because it's the right thing.
God Bless James Oliver Rigney Jr. (Robert Jordan), Harriet McDougal (His wife and editor), Tom Doherty (Head of TOR publishing, and Brandon Sanderson (The brave man who completed the series)
Climactic, suspenseful, satisfying.
It was a good ending to the best fantasy series I have ever read. Worth the ticket price, so good I bought the audiobook and the print edition. Brandon Sanderson did a great job on the very difficult task of bringing forth the dream of a literary genius, Robert Jordan.
To many to choose from.
I listened to it all day at work, and when I came home. My wife thought I was ignoring her but I couldn't stop.
Thank you Brandon Sanderson, and most especially thank you Robert Jordan. When I first read the Eye of the World I couldn't help comparing it to Tolkien as all good fantasy writers have taken inspiration from him. Now the series is finally complete, I believe Tolkien would have been as addicted to this series as I am. I am rereading it as we speak, and will continue to do so in the years to come. I think it was especially good to have Michael and Kate read every book, as I read them now the voices I hear in my head are those that read this story so well.
Yes. I would not just recommend this book but the whole series! Once I started this book I could not put it down, I don't have the words to describe how much I enjoyed this book accurately.
I cannot compare this book to another!
The whole of the final battle.
Thank you Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Michael Kramer and Kate Reading.
After this many years it was a wonderful feeling to have finally had a conclusion to my favorite fantasy series ever. Now Brandon Sanderson is working on a series with a similar scope: Way of Kings. Can't wait to start the journey all over again.
Really enjoyed this audiobook - I actually skipped a few of the later books in this series as it got so slow and tedious, and re-engaged once things started happening again (around book 10) but this book convinced me to go back and read the ones I missed - so altogether a great book - I think Brandon Sanderson did a great job of finishing the series off.
I love the audio versions because they are so expressive
I could tell you...but...you need to read the book.
I have been reading these books for a couple of years now, so my anticipations for this book has been considerably shorter than most. Even still, this was a perfect ending to tie the series up. The writing is excellent, the presentation is deeply engaging, and all-told, I couldn't have asked for more.
Mat Cauthon is just awesome.
Their ability to portray nearly 100 unique characters with nothing more than their voice. You can almost instantly tell who is talking just by their voice.
We lose some good friends in this book, but I won't reveal who.
The story is excellent and as always the narrators do a fantastic job.
I'm not going to ruin anything.
The one right after the super long chapter.
