Publisher's Summary

Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages.
When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork. With The Gathering Storm (Book 12) and Towers of Midnight (Book 13) behind him, both of which were number-one New York Times hardcover best sellers, Sanderson now re-creates the vision that Robert Jordan left behind.
Edited by Jordan’s widow, who edited all of Jordan’s books, A Memory of Light will delight, enthrall, and deeply satisfy all of Jordan’s legions of listeners.
The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, May yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

Finally we have closure!

What did you love best about A Memory of Light?

It was good to finish something started so many years ago. Mr. Snaderson does a great job of bringing the series to a satisfying close. A lot of the fanboys may disagree, but I believe Mr. Sanderson did a better job finishing the series than Mr. Jordan would have done. Sanderson is much better at action and this book is non-stop action from page one. I believe the weakest points of the series are the elements of Mr. Jordan's that Sanderson is forced to shoe-horn in. Jordan definitely didn't have this worked out nearly as well as he said he did.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Memory of Light?

There were so many. I think I liked the part where Moiraine makes her return and saves the day.

Which scene was your favorite?

There are so many good scenes I couldn't honestly pick one.,

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

that is physically impossible. This book is LONG. They could easily have made two books out of this but I am glad they did not.

Any additional comments?

The book is long and very dark in points. I had to take a lot of breaks in reading it. Sanderson did a great job and should be commended as the end of the series had been built up so big that no one could have satisfied everyone. He came as close as anyone could have, including Mr. jordan himself. The series tanked for a while but the last three books are much better than what Mr. Jordan was putting out near the end. If you made it this far in the series nothing is going to stop you from finishning anyway. The form didn't ask but the narrators are excellent as well.

End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever.

I pasted what I had for this review in Word, and it was 4 full pages, and still not done, so I decided to shorten it...

While this series is one of my favorites, it's not one I recommend to everyone. Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series is a long journey, both wonderful and painful, that I had to listen to twice before I could truly appreciate it's coherent beauty. While most of the books I couldn't put down, a couple got quite long, and all tend to have A LOT of detail - from what people are wearing to what everyone is thinking about every facet of what they're about to do...

Robert Jordan passed away, before completing the series. Mr. Jordan's wife then made the two best decisions possible for the series, given the heartbreaking loss of her husband:

1. Ask Brandon Sanderson to complete the series
2. Do it in three books instead of one

What Brandon Sanderson did with completing Robert Jordan's series, was the work of a true master. Mr. Sanderson is not just a great writer, he truly loves this series. You can see it in his work - he knows and understands each of the characters - and is emotionally attached to them as Jordan was, and as I am. I mean no disrespect to Robert Jordan when I say that Brandon Sanderson channeling Robert Jordan is as good as, if not better, than Robert Jordan alone.

After 20+ years of marching toward the final battle, as confident as I was that Mr. Jordan had this story done right, I was honestly prepared to be at least a little disappointed, but I was not. These last three books were awesome, and I feel this part of my life (yes, I mean this series) is complete. Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Jordan, and Mr. Sanderson. Also, thanks to the narrators Kate Reading and Michael Kramer who were there for the whole series!

Beautifully Done.

A fitting end to a remarkable journey which I finally finished at 4:45 this morning, today will not be fun but it was worth it.

Thank you Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Michael Kramer and Kate Reading, it's been a pleasure.

A fitting conclusion

What a brilliant conclusion to the epic! The characters we have come to know so well fulfilled their destinies with passion, humour, bravery and humility. All credit to Robert Jordan for his amazing imagination in creating the world of the Dragon Reborn, and due credit and thanks to Brandon Sanderson for adapting his style and weaving the final threads so that the wheel turned as RJ had willed.

I often listen in my car and there were times I had to pull over to get through some particularly nerve-wracking episodes such as Perrin vs Slayer, Egwene vs M'Hael, Olver vs Trollocs and of course Rand vs Moridin. I cried for the 'friends' who died, revelled in the humour of reluctant hero Mat and almost felt sorry for the Forsaken as their diabolical schemes unravelled.

Final credit to Kate Redding and Michael Kramer for their reading and characterization - it made listening such a pleasure and added depth to the characters: thank you.

An ending to my favorite series

I've read and listened to the Wheel of Time quite a few times now. It's a good series that takes stamina to finish. To me it is well worth the effort.
