Publisher's Summary

When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    "Absolutely incredible."

    The story is superb and the narration impeccable. Although the audio clip seems poor on the preview the quality of the clip DOES NOT mirror the quality of the actual narration.

    "Good listen"

    Enjoyed listening to this. The story, itself, was nice. The way it moved forward did not feel as forced as in other books. Events seemed to flow relatively logically. I enjoyed getting to know the characters. Will definitely continue this series.

    "Story and performance are excellent"

    This story is intricate and classic. There are elements that might seem trite in less able hands, but Robert Jordan spins a web that I can easily imagine spanning 14 novels. Characters are complex and plot lines are intricate without straying unbelievably from the center. I can't wait to read the next.

    "Great fantasy"

    I loved the story. It did more than hold my attention, it transported me to another universe full of wonder, mystery and adventure. I found myself arranging my day for maximum listening time. The narration is first class. I love how the reader can create characters with his voice.

    "Love it each time"

    I think that the narrators do a fantastic job, it's a little odd I suppose that there are two and that they sometimes play the same characters but I'm assuming that it's because the story is so long that they used two to double the speed I the production. I like them both though.

    "Outstanding"

    Aside from some pronunciations being slightly different between the two readers, the reading is excellent. And the story is priceless!

    "Pretty Good"

    Extremely slow start, it actually took me a year to get past it but once I got through I was done within a few days. It would've been faster if not for work and sleep. Awesome read!
