"Jordan has come to dominate the world that Tolkien began to reveal." (The New York Times)
This book by Robart Jordan is a great Fantasy book! And the two narrators are very good at playing the multiple parts in this book. Great Audo book, I highly recommend it!!!!
Always on the look out for a great story that sweeps me into another world, time, or person. I hate being bored by literature.
Having NOT been a fan of the long, epic story that often waxes and wanes over time, I have to admit that Jordan has written a compelling and masterfully woven story...one that I found gripping and thoughtfully expansive each and every hour I listened to it.
These complex yet understandable characters have been my companions for weeks as I listened to the story of their plight...fearing both what was going to happen next to them, as well as the end of the story which inexorably drew nearer and nearer.
I can't wait to listen to the remaining stories...I have been captured by the lives of these simple farmers and their motley crew of friends (both dark and light).
Well worth the time spent listening. Well worth the investment. Thank you Jordan for writing something worthwhile and interesting!
I left an earlier review about how I could not find my audiobook after i had downloaded it. i apologize for my rash words, as I have found them and I absolutely love this program. I believe the reader does a very good job bringing the story to life. This is my favorite series of books, and I know that I'll be buying the following books from Audible as well.
I never dreamed I would be interested in Sci-Fi. Robert Jordan has a fabulous imagination to have created The Eye of the World series. I have listened to several of the books in the series and think everyone is so good. The fight over good and evil in this series catches your interest from the very first chapter and makes you want to continue listening to find out how each battle ends.
This book was pretty good overall. It has a great storyline, characters, and setting. I was disappointed that the ending didn't have more of a finish, but it did leave me wanting more and I already downloaded the next book.
Of all the books I have read, The Wheel of Time series has got to be one of the best. Robert Jordan is one of the best Fantasy Fiction Writers I have ever known.
While listening to this book I found myself alternating between being into the story line and letting my mind wander. The story was fine, and overall I enjoyed the book, but I don't like having to work so hard to maintain concentration.
Before all the 5 star reviewers ignite their flames... The 3 star rating has less to do with content than delivery. The novel is excellent. I disagree that it is of the literary caliber of Tolkein, though it needn't be. As a story I'd give it 4.5 stars.
As an audiobook it rates a 2. The narration is unworthy of the story. The first two hours are a drudge, and it seems like the reader made the recording cold. Some sentences are so poorly delivered that one must rewind, relisten, and repeat in order restore the rhythm.
The narrator's voice is so thin and annoying, I couldn't even listen to this for more than 20 mins or so. I tried everything to fatten the voice up and make it bearable. Talk about disappointing! I used the highest quality audio setting available too.
