    Description

    The Wheel of Time is a PBS Great American Read Selection!

    Now in development for TV!

    Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers and listeners around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

    The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    On the slopes of Shayol Ghul, the Myrddraal swords are forged, and the sky is not the sky of this world.

    In Salidar the White Tower in exile prepares an embassy to Caemlyn, where Rand Al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, holds the throne - and where an unexpected visitor may change the world....In Emond's Field, Perrin Goldeneyes, Lord of the Two Rivers, feels the pull of ta'veren to ta'veren and prepares to march...Morgase of Caemlyn finds a most unexpected, and quite unwelcome, ally....And south lies Illian, where Sammael holds sway... 

    TV series update: "Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Judkins previously worked on shows such as ABC’s Agents of SHIELD, the Netflix series Hemlock Grove, and the NBC series Chuck. Red Eagle partners Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will executive produce along with Radar’s Ted Field and Mike Weber. Darren Lemke will also executive produce, with Jordan’s widow Harriet McDougal serving as consulting producer." (Variety)

    Male characters dumb. female characters unbearable

    as before, story interesting, but females are so arrogant and proud, totally controlling everything while males are sheep, in intelligence and lack of confidence, authority, and balls..

    Good, not great

    I agree with another reviewer. there is too much redescribing people and scenarios. At some point can we stop hearing about women who "sniff" after they are angry about something?! I have a running joke about this subject at home. "And she sniffed!" Women think men are wool heads and stubborn, men don't know what to think about women. Yeah bro.... We get it.
    Overall this is a great story, but it could have been trimmed down a lot.
    Don't worry..... only 7 more books to go. ahhhhh :)

    Finally here!

    This is it! Lord of Chaos is finally out in Unabridged format!

    Jordan/WoT literati argue about their favorite scene or the best part of the series. Ever since this book was published the battle at the wells has ranked near the top. This book and the two before it are Jordan at his best, his most innovative and balanced. I highly recommend the series (make sure you start with book one).

    As for the audiobook... Michael Kramer and Kate Reading have been doing the narration for all 8 unabridged editions so far and they do a very good job of it. The only part of the narrations that bugs me in the slightest is Kramer's portrayal of Gawyn. How come Gawyn has a Brit accent and Elayne and the Emond's Fielders have normal accents? They're all from Andor... Anyway, very good production quality; engrossing story; able to fit on an iPod. What more could you ask for?

    Disappointed

    I've been stuck to every book in the series prior to this one. I've tried multiple times getting through it but it is almost unreadable. I've listened to the first 10 chapters multiple times and still don't really know what's going on or if anything interesting ever does.. it's a shame because 1-5 were phenomenal!!!!

    Good job

    Kate Reading & Micheal Kramer do a fantastic job of narating this series. Anyone interested in High Fantasy should start this series at book 1 and not stop until they are done. My only hope is that they will get the next book done in unabridged formate before I finish this one.

    Please die Nyaneave

    I love he books but stop having the women act like they are socially handicapped. Nyaneave is the most insufferable bitch i have ever come across in a book. There is no way Lan or any other man would want to to be with her. It seemed so forced that he fell in love with such a mean woman. It's not even just that. She thinks all men are dumb, even obviously capable ones like Tom, and that she is the most capable person in the world at every thing. If i was traveling with i would have defected over to the Forsaken just because of her.

    Losing motivation to continue series.

    Although Robert Jordan has created a complex and captivating world and explores thought provoking themes, I often want to reach through the pages to strangle him. The pacing in the first book was great. Each subsequent novel is increasingly bogged down with over explaining what happened previously to the extent that story lines are neglected and even completely ignored for inordinate periods of time. The timeline itself feels incongruous.

    The worst offender of number six, though, is the contrived plot development. Nearly every main character and party acts out of character for the sake of plot convenience. Such a waste of the previous thousands of pages developing these characters! And for what? After endless meandering, just as things start getting interesting, the requisite number of pages has been achieved and the book rushes through an ending that fails to resolve or even address main plot lines. It's like he lost track of where he was going on this one and couldn't make up his mind of how to proceed.

    Robert Jordan drags out yet another book...

    I'm done...I literally can't stand to listen to another minute of this. I love'd the first three books in this series, but this one was yet another painful slog through, the same die cast female characters, sniffing and straightening skirts, next to no actual character development (besides Eguaene, possibly Rand) or even and worst of all literally only one interesting thing happening (because let's face it he told us Eguaene would be Amrlyn two or three books ago....). Do yourself a favor skip to the last chapter then move on with your life. There is way too much pointless and repetitive detail in this book... it downs out anything interesting that actually happened. In order to finish this series I'm hoping someone one can recommend an abridged edition...because I'm still curious to know how it ends, just not masochistic enough to put myself through another full book.

    Highs and lows...

    Any additional comments?

    While still a fantastic read, this book is probably my least favorite in the series thus far, due mostly to the slow pace of things. While I greatly enjoy Robert Jordan's verbose writing style, the repetitiveness of details in this particular title did make the story seem to drag at points and I feel the constant reiteration could have easily been trimmed down without impacting the story. Aside from that, the continued outstanding plot and character development was well worth the down time and the climatic conclusion to the book made the final 8 hours extremely exciting to listen through. I might even argue it’s some of the most exciting writing in the series. Again, Michael Kramer and Kate Reading did a great job with the narration, although I still wish they had agreed upon pronunciations of certain names prior to the recording. Onward!

    of course a classic BUT so much blabbing

    Would you consider the audio edition of Lord of Chaos to be better than the print version?

    Overall a great story never get me wrong with that...The audio is very well done and helps with the often tedious overwrought introspection and repetitive and needless self-indulgence of the main characters and the verbal diarrhea of others.

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    There is a great story behind the book that always seems to get lost as characters search there souls, indulge in their own introspection, complain about there plight on and on. The books as a whole start off strong then sink into long periods of diatribe and drivel that does little for character or plot development. The editors/author could have taken out hundreds of pages (hours of listening) and had a much stronger product. I find myself "not listening" to the book as they characters drone on needlessly about nonsense with little regard to the overall plot. Then the plot and action returns and we remember why we love these books. Take the first dozen chapters and the last few and we have a "cant put it down" It is almost like we need more words for the sake of having more words.

    One thing I always muse upon is the similarities in plot and characters between the wheel of time and the sword of truth. Reading one is like reading the other.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are so many great scenes in the series of books...

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Will weaton weaves as the will weaton wills hahaha

    Any additional comments?

    worth a listen..

    Good except for one major thing

    The constant reminder of Men vs Women, of men don’t understand women and women don’t understand men, is tedious and annoying. I am not sure there is even one chapter without it.

    Otherwise, the story is good.
