    Story
    "How is it still not fixed?"

    I love this book. I love this series. Mostly I like the 2 narrators; the format is great, but through the series they will often mispronounce names for many books and then change to the right name, and it can be confusing.

    Anyway, I give this book 5 stars for the story, but the editing was all messed up. Over and over again chunks of the story will just loop back to repeat again. It's really irritating. That being said, I'd still 100% recommend the book - I just really hope at some point they fix the editing. It's a popular enough series that I think it's worth doing.

    "Great story, but issues with the audio"
    Would you listen to Winter's Heart again? Why?

    I would probably not listen to this again until they fix the repeat issue on some of the tracks. I did not like how they split the book into several 5 to 10 minute clips, instead of each chapter being an actual chapter. While listening some of the tracks would have repeats of about 10 seconds of dialog. I rewound these tracks a couple of times to make sure it was not a glitch on my devise and it was actually part of the audio download. It was quite annoying after the 10th time this happened.

    Story
    "Fire the editor!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anyone listening this book is likely already addicted to the series. While the recording quality is poor and the editing apparently nonexistent, at least the two narrators have agreed on name pronunciations and have decided to be consistent this time around. But the story is the reason to put up with such blatant incompetence.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The repetitions are annoying, distracting, and a clear indication that whoever was in charge of editing this audio book was an idiot.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very popular series. It should be re-edited or even re-recorded to correct the editing issues. There's just no excuse for such shoddy work being sold.

    "Poor editing"
    Would you listen to Winter's Heart again? Why?

    Yes, the story is well written and well performed.


    Any additional comments?

    The editing was not well done. Several times each chapter, the story would repeat 4-5 seconds. This happened no matter which device I was listening with.

    Story
    "I Can't Believe Audible is Charging $40 for This"

    The story is what I've come to expect from the last three of the WoT series. Plots, sub-plots and not a lot of real action. Whatever. I'm 20 years invested in the series.

    But the huge disappointment is the audio. How is Audible charging $40 for this crap of an excuse for an audio book? I like the narrators, but the audio has no place being in a Best Seller like this. I thought it was my device at first, so I deleted and re-downloaded twice. The audio has been arbitrarily split into 253 (yes 253!!!) chapters with odd breaks, 15-second repeats and a feeling like there's something missing between long pauses. This is extremely disappointing. Thinking I might get my money back on this one. It is nearly un-listenable.

    "Slight problems with playing"
    Any additional comments?

    The book and story are great...I find that sometimes Audible app via Android will repeat what it just said 10 seconds before. It will rewind and repeat just once the past 10 second or so section. It does it once a day and I listen to about 1-2hrs a day.

    Story
    "Great Story, bad editing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    maybe, someone needs to take the time to listen to the story and fix the 10+ errors where the story has repeating segments, as if someone took a taped copy of the story and just spliced it together without removing the overlapping segments from the many tape sides.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winter's Heart?

    I would say, but it would be a story spoiler.


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

    They both read aloud quit well, it would be nicer if Michael would read the guy arts and Kate read all the women parts. It is a bit confusing when they both read the same character different inflections and tones.


    Was Winter's Heart worth the listening time?

    Yes

    "The story is good, but come on Audible"

    I may regret not waiting to finish the book, but I have to say this... I am enjoying the story, but Audible you need to edit this audio book so that I don't hear the same part again as I switch parts/chapters/sections. It ruins the immersion. I am especially disappointed because I am listening through your app.

    "Great Read, BAD BAD BAD listen"
    What did you like best about Winter's Heart? What did you like least?

    I read the book several times and enjoyed it a great deal. Too bad the sound editing was done by someone who obviously did not know to listen to it before he signed off on it. Repeated sentences, long pauses, poor sound quality. Kate and Michael are great as always, but the recording destroyed the atmosphere they set.
