    The first novel in Robert Jordan's #1 New York Times best-selling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time®.

    The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Moiraine Damodred arrives in Emond’s Field on a quest to find the one prophesized to stand against The Dark One, a malicious entity sowing the seeds of chaos and destruction. When a vicious band of half-men, half beasts invade the village seeking their master’s enemy, Moiraine persuades Rand al’Thor and his friends to leave their home and enter a larger unimaginable world filled with dangers waiting in the shadows and in the light.

    A fresh take on a classic

    *The Wheel of Time* has a special place in my heart, as it does for countless fans around the world. I read the (paper) books during one of the most challenging periods of my life, and I honestly think I would not be where I am today if not for the hope I got from these books.

    That being said, I honestly tried to like the Kramer and Reading recordings for years. I’ve listened through all the books multiple times, trying to figure out exactly why I do not enjoy their work on these books. I know they have legions of fans but, for some reason, they never worked for me. These are highly charged, extremely emotional books, and while I think Reading puts a fair bit of emotion into her performances, Kramer does not.

    Once again, this is purely my personal opinion.

    Pike gave me what I had hoped to get when I first bought the WOT audios. The breathless anticipation, the riveting action sequences, the tension, the drama, the romance, the thrill. The Prologue, for instance, is an extremely tense scene. There is a tremendous amount of history behind every word that is written in that one chapter, not to mention the amount of drama — Kramer’s reading felt a little… lax. Pike’s voice, on the other hand, flowed. The dialogue is emotional, the descriptions are vivid, and she has a tremendous amount of control in how she portrays these characters. The ending of the Prologue, one of the most dramatic closing scenes in any WOT book, is builds like an orchestra with Pike’s performance, the tension climbing and climbing before coming crashing down with all the force of a tsunami.

    Once more, I laud Kramer and Reading for lending their voices to an incredible series of books. Personally, I struggled to enjoy their performance, and Rosamund Pike’s voice worked like magic for me. She gives a vivid, fresh face to a classic tale, and I think she does a wonderful job.

    I sincerely hope she goes on to narrate the rest of the books.

    Daniel Henney should read the male voices

    I really like Rosamud Pikes narration of this book as a alternative to the original. I still like the original as well. I think if they plan to redo all the other books, it would be awesome to see someone like Daniel Henney or one of the other male actors from the Amazon series to narrate the male character in the same fashion as the original version that Michael Kramer and Kate Reading did.

    Wow

    Just amazing. Love the original by Michael kramer and Kate Reading, but Rosamund brings a whole new level. Had me hooked from the beginning and I didnt want to "put it down" 10 out of 5 stars. Hope she does the rest of the rest of the series or other series. Amazing.

    Beautiful Narration

    I’m a huge fan of the original Kramer/Reading audiobook narration. I always will be. But this lovely performance by Rosamund Pike has been an utter joy to listen to. Her voice is so well suited to reading this kind of story that I found myself revisiting chapters just to hear her marvelous take on Robert Jordan’s prose.

    This reading is exceptional

    Michael Kramer and Kate Reading will always have a special place in my heart for their narration, but Rosamund Pike absolutely knocked it out of the park. This is a reading that elevates the story being told in every possible way, it adds a certain gravitas that is missing in the original recordings.

    I really hope she does the rest of the books. I may already have all 14 of them, but I absolutely would spend 14 more credits for the rest of the series done by her.

    5 stars!!!

    A laughable narration when compared to the original.

    First off, I work as a professional audio editor and have worked on numerous New York Times Best Selling author’s audiobooks that are available here on Audible. I have have worked on hundreds of different narrators from professional narrators, to self read author reads and actor reads, to podcast host ect.

    While Miss Pike is not a terrible narrator (I’ve certainly worked on worse actor reads) she does not even come close to even touching the Michael Kramer and Kate Redding performances. Her pacing is way off and she goes from completely monotone where she’s putting me to sleep one moment, to shrilly screeching the next moment. Her lack of vocal ability with voicing different characters made me have to turn it off after only 3 chapters.

    As a long time Wheel of Time fan, I have never felt myself falling asleep or even so much as catching my mind drifting. This is largely due to both Michael Kramer and his wife Kate’s incredible narrations. They truly brought Jordan’s world of the Wheel of time to life for me. Each character has their own voice and I can tell exactly who they are at any point picking up from either reader…

    For new listeners do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time with this version. Listen to the original.

    Exceptionally performed

    Even though I’ve read the entire series many times, I found Rosamund Pike’s rendition of The Eye of the World absolutely enchanting. She manages to inject uniqueness to each character without sounding contrived. I found myself completely lost in another world because of her storytelling. My only complaint is that I don’t know if she’ll be doing the rest of the series. Please please please make it happen!

    Masterful narration gives new life to a classic

    This new narration gives EOTW the weight and gravitas it deserves. It's like stepping into this world again for the first time. Like most people, I am a fan of the originals and am happy to have both. It's wonderful to hear a new interpretation, and it's a breathtaking performance. It's asking a lot but I really hope she does the whole series. Wow!

    An old love with new narration. A must buy.

    I have loved this series my whole life and this narration has rekindled the fierce fire of passion I felt towards it. If you are reading this and wondering which one you should buy I tell you this one my friend. Rosamund Pike is such a wonder to listen to.

    A lifelong passion rediscovered.

    I was barely 13 when I started reading the wheel of time.. Every year a book. That long wait between publishing. I remember where I was when I heard Jordan had died, I had just started reading a Knife of dreams. And I had cried as hard as I would have loosing a friend...

    With the series out, I felt the tug to return to these books though I knew I didn't have the time as I had before. Audiobooks were the answer, but I didn't like the original narration I have to confess. It didn't feel the same as reading. Then I saw this. Amlnd it was everything I hoped for and more. Rosamund Pike gave it the feel and atmosphere I wanted it to have. Even with one narrator, the characters stand out. She reads it clearly and unrushed, the acvents rich and colourful, the emotions reaching your ears through a spectacular performance. I wish with all my being that she will continue reading this series. It is a lot, I know. But wow.

    I read a lot of critism about the length of Jordan's books these days from people who clearly think they could have done better. They clearly haven't because I don't see thousands of epic length series on the bookstores shelves. If you have heard of that and are hesitant, I want you to ask yourself this:

    Do you love a journey without being anxious about the end? Do you love fantasy, high fantasy, epic fantasy. Fantasy from the masters. Feist. Donaldson. Goodkind. Brooks.
    Are ypu ready to be pulled into a world so vast and rich that it comes with an encyclopedia?
    If so. Then this is the series for you. Ignore those moaning about it's length and it's editing and how it should be shorter. What's the rush? Why would you want to rush a series as magnificent as this one.

    Rosamund does a much better Job than Kate and Michael. She finds fitting voices for every character.
    Will she perform the next book, too?

    So much better than the first audio book edition!!

    The story is gripping and well told! But anyone buying the audiobook might already know or suspect that ;)
    Rosemund Pike however does an absolutely amazing performance here!!!! This audiobook edition is so much better than the one with Michael Kramer and Kate Reading. I accidentally purchased the first edition even twice (twice because I forgot about my mistake, as I so very much wanted the audiobook) - and twice had to return them, as I couldn't stand the performance of Michael Kramer.
    Now I can't wait for the follow ups - hopefully read by Rosemund Pike as well and hopefully coming soon.

    Ich bin begeistert vom Sprecherin. Ich konnte nicht aufhören ihr zuzuhören. Die Geschichte ist sehr spannend erzählt und man ist schnell in die Welt eingetaucht, die Pike mir ihre Stimme zaubert. Ich hoffe sie nimmt alle Bücher auf.

    Tolles Hörbuch

    Ich habe mich aus finanziellen Gründen für die englische Version der Hörbücher entschieden, da hier die Bücher nicht nochmal unterteilt sind. Zum Reinkommen habe ich parallel auch nochmal chapter summaries gelesen, um sicher zu gehen, dass ich keine wichtigen Infos verpasst habe.
    Die Stimme empfinde ich als angenehm, bei der Hörprobe der nächsten Bände wird aber leider klar, dass durch die neue Prime Video Serie das erste Buch neu eingelesen wurde, die anderen aber (noch) nicht.
    Ich persönlich konnte der Handlung gut folgen und habe ohne große Anstrengungen der Erzählung zuhören können. Mit Sicherheit sind mir durch die Sprachbarriere einzelne Details entgangen, trotzdem habe ich die Geschichte genießen können. Ich werde bei den Fortsetzungen auf jeden Fall bei den englischen Versionen bleiben.

    Rosamund Pike reads like a goddess

    Rosamund Pike reads like a goddess and guides well trough Robert Jordans World!
    it is a joy to let her guide you through all the chapters of book one from the wheel of time, really wishing that she'll continue on and read the other books well.

    concerning the story: the wheel of the time world is a complex and rich world containing beautiful written characters and places.

    for all those also watching the new series: the characters are much more deep and the character development really nicely written (compared to the show).
