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.

In Towers of Midnight, the Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One's prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight.The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. 

Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck. To prevail, he must seek answers in Tel'aran'rhiod and find a way - at long last - to master the wolf within him or lose himself to it forever. 

Meanwhile, Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life. The creatures beyond the stone gateways - the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn - have confused him, taunted him, and left him hanged, his memory stuffed with bits and pieces of other men's lives. He had hoped that his last confrontation with them would be the end of it, but the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills. The time is coming when he will again have to dance with the Snakes and the Foxes, playing a game that cannot be won. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost. 

Dovie'andi se tovya sagain. It's time to toss the dice.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

Brandon Sanderson really understands this wonderful world that Robert Jordan has created. I am saddened that we will only get one more book and then nothing but imagination. I have listened to all of the books in this series and I remain captivated by the charactors and the Narration. Kate Redding is really the best there is and there would be no Matt without Micheal Kramer. Mr. Sanderson has another loyal follower.

Doesn't wrap as nicely as Gathering Storm

This was a solid and action packed listen. As usual, Michael and Kate do an excellent job with the read. If Rand and Egwene are the primary characters in this series, they have only brief appearances in Towers of Midnight. Perrin and Mat's stories finally get moving and are almost resolved. I would say that anything unpredictable occurs in those story lines, but they are satisfying nonetheless. The flow and story is so tight I actually felt this book ended too abruptly. However, I look forward to the conclusion coming in the next book.

Please stop using the woman narrator

Why is she making all those exaggerated, strange noises, and why is she talking like that for Min? Oh, light, she is a bad narrator. Please for your own sake lady, do not try to make it oo much, keep a balance in visualizing voices, it is way too much, what a pity, such an amazing book, and that voices, what can I say, phaa

Excellent narrative...

Sanderson has done an excellent job in continuing Jordan's rich storytelling in this second-to-last book in the Wheel of Time series. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Wow

Prologue gave us a glimpse of what was to come. The book , so far, lives up to the promise of the prologue. I am up to chapter 8 now and and really excited about what has happened thus far. Like pieces of a puzzle gradually coming together so that one can see more and more of the whole tapestry that this series truly is. A magnificent tapestry with plently of places to view in detail.

Its a necessary step...

I'm a long time WOT fan but for me, like many, the series really bogged down as Jordan overwrote every book since the 5th one. RJ pursued so many story lines it made it almost impossible to follow one character or story arc effectively as a reader, and the mess he left for Brandon Sanderson to clean up is truly atrocious. How RJ expected to finish all of this off in 1 last mammoth book is beyond me. Clearly BS has a made an effort to retain the Jordan pattern of giving every single minor character anyone runs across a back story. Unfortunately that tendency was one of the things I liked least about how RJ wrote his books. Like many here I'm terribly tired of P Aybarra's constant introspection, just get over yourself already. Further I believe that Kramer's voice for him, along with the dialog, makes him seem like a petulant child and I've found myself skipping parts of his section that clearly repeat what has been said too many times before. I generally like Mat's character and it feels to me like BS has brought some new life to that story line, and some of the plot lines finally resolve themselves to clean that up. Rand's story arc and character are HUGE upgrades over RJ's last efforts and I finally find, again, that the story seems to be advancing along well with his character. Egwene's character is still far too much for me to stomach and she seems to be becoming a pivotal female character who is influencing the other female characters in the story line, such as Elayne and Nyneave who are stronger characters and much more likable in my opinion. I find myself wishing Egwene is killed off in a tragic moment to show that even the main characters can be touched by the Dark... but if that happened there would be WAY to much work to be done on the White Tower story line so I guess she has to be kept around. Avienda, one of my favorite early characters is virtually non-existant, as are most of the Aiel characters. This is clearly a necessary step, just finish already.

Keeps getting better!

As with the gathering storm, this book benefits from the blending of styles between Jordan and Sanderson. The action and plot keep your attention and make it difficult to stop. Sanderson does the reader / listener the favor of removing the one and only true annoyance of Robert Jordan's writing style; that being the never-ending detailed descriptions of every conceivable object, especially every characters current clothing. Enough detail remains to not fully depart from precedent; however, emphasis is given to plot and actions. The only problem I have with this book is the realization that it will likely be at least another year before I can purchase the final book.

Not a disappointment!

I really enjoyed the latest installment of the WoT. Sanderson has picked up the flag and continued this amazing story. I will tell you one thing this story keeps you guessing. You find yourself going through a myriad of emotions as this book unfolds and by the end I have to admit you do feel a bit like Sam the Hobbit at the Gates of Moridor trying to get in. There is a portion missing out of the recording which didn't make me too happy, but other than that I really loved it.

OMG ... OMG ... OMG

And The Battle Begins .... Almost at the end of part 4 and can only say "Oh My GOD". I am still in complete "awe" at how one man's mind could concieve a world such as WoT. Thank you Brandon Sanderson for so effectively putting RJ's final vision on paper and bringing it to us. Thank you Michael and Kate for breathing true and such vivid LIFE into RJ's characters. NOW .... I WILL HAVE TO STILL MYSELF to patients for the conclusion. And believe me I will be on the edge of my seat until the last and final book is released next year.

Excellent so far!

BTW I did get the Prologue when I downloaded so bear that in mind. This is turning out to be as great as "The Gathering storm"! That, added to the great value of 48 hours for one credit, this is definitely worth the listen!

wirklich sehr gut

Ich muss zugeben, dass mir die letzten beiden Bücher, die von Brandon Sanderson nach Notizen von Robert Jordan geschrieben wurden, besser gefallen, als die "Originale". Irgendwie versteht es Brandon Sanderson auf eine ganz eigene Art, den Spannungsbogen zu erhalten und zu vertiefen.
Auch die Entwicklung der einzelnen Hauptcharaktere ist sehr gut gelungen, ich hoffe, dass Lan noch genug Raum erhält, er ist einer meiner Lieblings-Nebendarsteller.
Für neue Hörer dürfte von Interesse sein, dass sich der Sprecher der männlichen Abschnitte der Bücher (also aus der Sicht von Mat, Rand, Perrin, etc.) geschrieben, deutlich verbessert hat. Ich habe mir gestern aus Neugierde nochmals "The Eye of the World" angehört und war entsetzt, wie gehetzt und teilweise lieblos dieses Buch doch teilweise gelesen wurde. Ein Lob an Michael Kramer, dass er sich über die Reihe hinweg so gesteigert hat, schade, dass die ersten Bücher so "verhunzt" wurden.

Großartig

Gänsehaut pur. Das 12te Buch war schon deutlich besser. Dieses ist der Hammer. Sanderson bringt frischen Wind und endlich wieder Spannung in die Bücher. Ich bin froh, dass ich durchgehalten habe.

Typisches vorletztes Buch

Die Handlung kommt kaum voran und das Finale wird vorbereitet.
Vieles scheint willkürlich und wenig schlüssig.
Hoffe das nächste ist wieder besser.

fantastic and amazing

A worthy episode, maybe the best. I’m looking forward to the final episode. Brandon Sanderson did a great job. All is ready for the last battle. Many storylines come together in this book.

It could never have been 38 hours!

Great! I did never think that this story will come to an end. Mr. Sanderson, if you read this, than please accept my deep thanks for the work on these books. I can feel that there is now the spirit of two dedicated and passionate writers in it. The choice of words and the pattern of the sentences are artistic. I am very happy, that I continued to listen to these audio books. They truly touched me. Also the reading from Michael Kramer and Kate Reading is (as always) wonderful. I hope that I will not have to wait too long for the final book. But on the other hand... it might – no it will be worth the waiting.

Verschlungene Wege

Es ist einfach genial. Handlungsstränge, die in vorherigen Büchern angefangen werden werden weitergeführt. Passiert dies, wird man automatisch dazu animiert nachzudenken "wie hat das eigentlich angefange?" Ich warte nun gespannt auf den letzten Band um endlich herauszufinden wie das Abenteuer ausgeht.
Ich denke, wer einmal Feuer beim "Rad der Zeit" gefangen hat hält auch bis zum Ende durch.

Nice

Dieses Buch hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Zwischendurch hat mich die Freude beim hören schon etwas verlassen aber mit diesem Buch ist alles wider gerettet. Freue mich schon auf den letzten Teil der Reihe.
Klare Kaufempfehlung

The "Middle Book" Problem

I finished listening to this really good audio book.
After "The Gathering Storm", Brandon Sanderson was anew able to give us a really good book from "The Wheel of Time". Well with the high expectations I had from listening to the former and Brandons other Books I was satisfied, but not overwhelmed.

It is not his best book, but its a really good one. The problem here might have been, that Brandon Sanderson did a lot of great ones and that it's a "Middle Book". He has to prepare everything for the big ending in the next book but still has to tie some string, dangeling from the previous one. It's simply not possible to make the middle book as good, as the first or last of a trilogy, just because you explored the big mystery and you can't have the climax yet.

Dont forget the narrators. Again Michael Kramer and Kate Readding did an astounding job with this.

Maybe I do the book some wrong, by giving "only" 4 stars, maybe not, you have to decide for yourself. If you like audio books and want to know the end of "The Wheel of Time" it's a must. And as I said... it's a really good book.
