"Jordan has come to dominate the world Tolkien began to reveal." (The New York Times)
"Large and splendid. The saga reaches a new level of emotional impact." (Chicago Sun-Times)
The Dragon Reborn is captivating from beginning to end! Robert Jordan does a wonderful job bringing many elements together at the end of this novel, and producing a very climatic ending. Though some might argue otherwise, the plot is moderately convoluted and will keep most readers riveted until the last page. It is well worth the listening!
Kate Reading and Michael Kramer have achieved a feat of extraordinary ability. They have managed deliver a reading of the book with no sound effects or music that is both engaging and entertaining.
Well worth your time
Since starting this series late last year, I have been pacing myself. This book, however, was so captivating that I downloaded the next book as soon as I finished this one. The story lines are becoming quite rich and enjoyable. Of course, the readers are still doing a great job.
great story, great reading, what a pleasure. i'm hooked! Once you start you can't stop reading these adventures.
I love to read. With two kids and a full time job in management, audio books have emerged as my only chance to leverage this love.
I definately agree with everyone who said slow...The book doesn't even start in the first half which is surprising considering this is one of the shorter stories in the series. The second half definately got better but that even took a while. The ending was once again superb however. I got goosebumps at the end but the build up to it could have been shortened without loosing much. Great book for anyone with a little patience but if you are looking for action from start to finish (like the first two books) go ahead and pass.
I really like the way Jordan plays off the reluctant hero. His insights into men and women's views of the opposite sex are often funny and help relieve the seriousness of the story, which is, as always, incredibly original and well written.
I found this book the slowest of the series so far, but still enjoyed it and will buy the next one in the series. Great series, love it. I'm also getting used to the switching between the two narrators who are both brilliant.
Lets you focus on the content and I use the books to travel and it keeps your mind active .
