    Description

    Now an original series starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!

    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.

    The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind.

    In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken?

    In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn.

    In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plans the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland.

    In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve.

    Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn....

    Commentaires

    "Jordan's multivolume epic continues to live up to its high ambitions. Complex plotting, an array of strong characters, lavish detail, and a panoramic scope make this series a feast for fantasy aficionados." (Library Journal)

    "The fourth volume of the most ambitious American fantasy saga continues to suggest that The Wheel of Time will also be the finest." (Booklist

    The best Wheel of Time book?

    The Shadow Rising is incredible from A to Z. It's truly where the series starts becoming this absolutely massive and yet incredibly well detailed world, with whole cultures fleshed out. The politics, the action, the character growth... Everything is just so well handled and written, so many great moments that I lost count... A big book for sure, but a brilliant one. Stellar job by the late Robert Jordan.

    PLEASE PROGRESS

    The lack of real progress in this story is driving me crazy. I'm going to have to give it up cause I just can't sit through another 41 hours of boring lack of progress.

    In depth plot and storyline but whats with the constant and petty quarreling?!

    I truly love the wheel of Time series universe created by Robert Jordan. For years I have both read listen to these books the only drawback is the petty war of the sexes immature nearly constant quarreling between the primary characters.

    Its quite incongruous when comparing the lifetimes of literally earth shattering import these beings represent to the high school level judgmental pithiness and childish banter they display towards each other.

    Rand and Perrin seem to be the only ones evolving into capable characters matching their reality.

    Already deep into Book 4 and seriously these characters should have grown out of this by now. if it doesn’t stop soon I don’t think I can continue listening. Its beyond annoying and destroys the otherworldly fantasy element i so enjoy

    Almost as great as the first book

    Storylines pick up quite a bit in book four. The three main protagonists begin embracing their respective roles as Taurvanianamias (only Jordan knows how to spell that word). There's more action as well.

    Note: I want to give this series one star when the story focuses on the women, Nineve in particular. I've never hated a character as much as Nineve; she's utterly obnoxious dimwit with less than zero common sense — a stupid, stupid girl.

    Both narrators are truly outstanding, especially Michael Kramer. Bravo indeed.

    The BEST of the Wheel of Time

    Great development of Perrin and a decent amount of Mat, this novel stands out as the most emotional and most ecstatic novel in the series. This turn in the series is the most engaging and enjoyable. I have listened to it 4 times now and each time experience a tightening in my throat when...well better not spoil it. You will not regret this one!

    Best Book So Far

    Now totally addicted to the pattern that Jordan has woven, I have to admit this last installment was by far my favorite. YES, critics of Jordan are right in that he can describe every detail in the most mundane scenes...and YES, his characters are a bit one dimensional in their personas...BUT with a story this complex I have to admit I appreciate characters that I know won't change on me from chapter to chapter or book to book. What I think most critics miss is that this book is about the storyline and the pattern, not just about the characters that play within it.

    This past week I learned that Jordon has died and that he didn't finish his last book in the series (and rumor has it the last installment is a mammoth!). I am committed to finishing this out and seeing Rand through as the Dragon reborn, finding out what Lord Perin Golden Eyes does, and discover what's up with Matt and his flair for luck and history. 4 books down, 8 more to go!

    Good at first, then...Meh

    I stopped reading the series after this book. The tragedy of this series is that the world, the back-history, and magic system are exquisitely developed, but the plot is repetetive and the characters are hollow. The pattern of the plot (no spoiler) is a less-than-brilliant move by (insert character), which leads to an emergency, which is resolved at the last second in a maddeningly convenient manner (usually either an unlooked-for rescue or a new manifestation of magic). The characters are fantasy stereotypes. However, the books are very suspenseful, and these are common issues in all but the best fantasy. All might be forgiven except for the sheer unnecessary length of the series. There are at least two major plot lines that a good editor would have axed altogether to bring focus to a badly meandering story arc and cut the size down a bit. I would recommend this series only to die-hard fantasy aficionados who will appreciate what was done well and forgive what was done poorly.

    Lots of good stuff here

    Quite a variety of really good storytelling and situations. Not at all predictable. Many characters and stories. A real page turner and engrossing. Of course being in the middle of a long series many unresolved threads. Listened to this for hours at a time.

    I'm still listening...

    I am struggling with continuing this series. The overall concept is intriguing but the writing is difficult sometimes. Things happen to characters that after four books we still have no explanation for, the girls are airheads at the best of times, oh Rand this and oh Rand that and all of the sudden he and Egwayne have no feelings for each other with no lead up, Elaine writes two letters that we have no insight into, Minh is supposed to be street savvy yet she sounds like an idiot when it comes to the opposite sex and someone please shoot me when Nineavh speaks. She's mean and grouchy and how are we supposed to like her or how do the others like her? Anyways I'm still listening because it is entertaining but im hoping Mr. Jordan connects the dots and smartens up the characters in the rest of the books.

    A really boring piece of book

    I have been following the series with great interest, but I reckon this book is going to be my last.
    Jordan has run out of new ideas and fills the book adding characters and producing again and again detailed descriptions with the only result of enlarging de book.
    You will be listening for hours to find a couple of interesting minutes.
    What I really wander is how the book has that amazing rate from the readers.

    I Gave Up On This One...

    Any additional comments?

    I really wanted to continue on with this series but just could not take anymore of the repetitive descriptions and characters that never seem to grow. It just got very irritating to me and I had to mark this series up to just poor writing. Great narration though and more power to you if you love these books.

    Das beste Buch der Reihe

    Hier fängt die Story endlich voll an, jegliche Vorarbeiten kommen zusammen und wir verfolgen die Hauptcharaktere in einzelnen Geschichten bis zum großen Ganzen.

    Vorahnungen werden weiterhin in jedem Kapitel verwendet und wenn man kurz nachdenken würde kann man einen Teil der Geschichte sich zusammen Reimen.

    Einfach klasse.

    unfortunately there is still no end in sight... which would be okay, if we could at least get an end of some kind, I mean a proper one.
