Great fantasy series

Fans of Brandon Sanderson will love this series by Robert Jordan's - you can see why Sanderson was the obvious choice to complete the series after Robert Jordan's death.

Robert Jordan's characters mature from wide-eyed innocents through to adults shaped by experiences both fascinating and horrifying. The world he created is full of varying cultures that are relatable, foreign and intriguing at the same time.

Michael Kramer and Kate Reading's performances delightfully bring the cast of characters to life and transport you to the world of the Dragon Reborn and his reluctant entourage.

This series is worth the time investment - I thought 14 books would be daunting to get through but I'm now approaching then end and am sad it has one!

The story keeps getting better

It has taken me until this book to believe in Jordan’s vast scope and the dual narrators delivery of the story. While I would say there are more diverse and entertaining narrators out there, they get the job done. Jordan is proving to me his mastery of story telling and I’m totally sold on continuing this epic series! #Audible1

The best of a wonderful beginning

This is the best of a wonderful beginning to a series that is epic and amazing. The end of the series is weak but this book is the start of the high point in the series with Matt coming into his own. By far my favourite of a series that has a number of amazing parts. #audible1

Good not Great

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.

Definately worth reading

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.

An outstanding novel in the Wheel of Time series!!

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!

Great ending. skip the body

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.

Almost perfect...

If you have made it this far, you're hooked already.
Best of the first 3 books even though it's the shortest.
