Exactly what I expected, something extraordinary

First of, I have read a majority of the WoT books and finished the remaining of the series via these Audio tapes. The quality of the reading by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading is superb. It is so much, to the extent that I will be purchasing the Gathering Storm audio only once it is released, as I have become attached to their interpretations of the characters and narration. In regards to the prologue, Brian Sanderson has done RJ well. Any WoT reader and fan will be pleased to find out that it seems exactly like RJ has never left - or even that what guided RJ in his writing is in spirit, with Brian Sanderson. Also, the beautiful thing about the audio tapes is I didn't notice one difference in Brians writing vs RJ - since it's being read to you! I highly recommend this as well as the series to any fan of Fantasy or great story telling of what really to me, embodies more than the typical light vs dark themes. I've learned and applied much of this series to my life - the subtle themes and lessons to be learned are there like diamonds sparkling in the rough. The first time I ever cried for someone I did not know, was when I heard of the death of Robert Jordan. It moved me that much, and I know it will do the same for you. Please, read his books.

The prologue was wonderful. The opening scene with the farmer was utterly chilling. Great to see Rand and the gang back in action.
