"Has all the breadth and depth that have made this fantasy author one of the acknowledged greats of the genre." (Publishers Weekly)
Addicted to books and plan on feeding that addiction . . . a lot.
Not sure what else to say. I probably could have skipped this book and continued on quite well. The only thing of consequence that happened was done in less than 30 seconds just before the end. I was probably overly generous with the 2 stars for the story but I do like the characters.
Although some interesting and important things happen in this book, I am getting frustrated having to listen through countless descriptions to get to the meat of the story. The book could have been much shorter and more interesting had I been trusted to have an imagination.
Every book in this series continues to develope the world, make more intrigue, and continue the story while at the same time makes you feel like u received a conclusion at each end
A better author.
Let someone else write it.
The two performances were not up to the standards they set for themselves earlier in the series. However, this may be down to the fact that they had to narrate a text only slightly less interesting than an encyclopedia written in a foreign language.
I am 10 books into a series of 14 and I am really not sure I will both going any further.
I would rather have watch paint dry than listen to this audio book!
No one. Its redundant in nature and would best be incorporated into the other surrounding novels
It was unnecessary
Of course. The other books are excellent
THere was no need of this book. It was very disappointing.
I'd like to give a 4.5 if possible. Another great book in the series just a little less going on than the previous books. It was a lot more politicking than action or big scenes which may bore some people. Also the first book that Rand was not the main focal point. It really shows that these books are good when Jordan went this direction. I will say that even tho nothing big happened it seemed like there was a lot more to follow and get lost in.
