struggled with this one, felt like I couple have listened to the first 5 chapters, the last 3, and gotten what I needed but the last 3, whew! what a doozie!
the story is still great! however, the recording on this book is a bit off. each chapter either skips back a little or skips forward a little so that you either hear stuff twice, or not at all.
author has lost grip on the story. a lot is going on that seems like it didn't matter. books seen to be more and more scattered. have come this far, might as well finish...
The chapters were broken up into 6-8 - minute segments, oftentimes repeating a paragraph. That's the only real complaint I have about this recording. Wonderful story and narration! Can't wait to listen to the next book!
Michael and Kate gave their usual Great performance. The story had me listening every chance I could. However the editing really let them down.
The story really pulled me in. The outcomes were amazing. loosing Robert Jordan was a loss.
There were pauses that seemed like the end of a section for it to turn out to be a pause mid paragraph. There was also repeated pros. there was about 12 times a line was repeated, when this happened it really threw me and I was thinking about the editing not the story.
I would say that the story is on par with the rest of the series. However, there's a serious editing problem where oftentimes a sentence is repeated as the story is being read. Otherwise the performance is great.
Great story and the performances are absolutely fantastic. The editing on the other hand is utterly amateurish. More than two hundred fifty "chapters" and so many of them are duplicates, repeated one after the other.
This should never have been published in this state.
