Publisher's Summary

Millions of Robert Jordan fans will rejoice at the release of the ninth book in the phenomenally best-selling series The Wheel of Time. The sequel to the number-one New York Times best seller The Path of Daggers, which swept the nation like a firestorm, Winter's Heart continues a remarkable tale that is mesmerizing an entire generation of readers.
Rand is on the run with Min, and in Cairhein, Cadsuane is trying to figure out where he is headed. Rand's destination is, in fact, one she has never considered. Mazrim Taim, leader of the Black Tower, is revealed to be a liar. But what is he up to? Faile, with the Aiel Maidens, Bain and Chiad, and her companions, Queen Alliandre and Morgase, is prisoner of Savanna's sept.Perrin is desperately searching for Faile. With Elyas Machera, Berelain, the Prophet and a very mixed "army" of disparate forces, he is moving through country rife with bandits and roving Seanchan.
The Forsaken are ever more present, and united, and the man called Slayer stalks Tel'aran'rhiod and the wolfdream. In Ebou Dar, the Seanchan princess known as Daughter of the Nine Moons arrives - and Mat, who had been recuperating in the Tarasin Palace, is introduced to her. Will the marriage that has been foretold come about? There are neither beginnings or endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it is a beginning....

Good book, bad audio

This is the worst quality of the Wheel of Time audio books I have encountered. The narrators are understandable, but significantly less audio quality than previous book. This was done by McMillan Publishers and cheaply. Audio Renaissance was much better. Now I understand the message in the beginning of the previous book about using the same narrators for continuity. Notable drop in quality from that book. The parts have 90 chapters about 6-7 minutes long. There is an audible and annoying pause between them. you can also hear what must be the spacing between CDs as words are repeated.

Unacceptably Incomplete

I truly love the story contained in Winter's Heart. The character development, plot points, climax, and denouement were all done very well. It's a great addition to Jordan's series.

But this recording is unacceptable--at least as it is currently uploaded. Yes, there is a noticeable difference in quality from the previous entries (this is much poorer), yes, the breaks in tracks are more or less random and jarring, and yes, there are many repeated sections of text. All of that aside, I could have enjoyed this audio book and moved on without much a second thought.

If, that is, it were at least complete. There are very nearly 3 chapters omitted near the end of this recording. (For reference, it jumps from Mat's PoV ending chapter 31 to Cadsuane's PoV just before chapter 35 begins. It then finishes the book and restarts at Cadsuane's PoV again.

There's no adventure in Far Madding, no arrest of Rand, no explanation of Nynaeve's cool new toys, and no development of Alivia as a character. This all suddenly takes place "offscreen" (not how Jordan wrote it) and we're left to fill in the gaps.

For how big a player this series is in the fantasy genre, this omission is absolutely ludicrous and must be repaired. If I didn't desire to own the entire series, I'd demand a refund. As it is, I'm demanding that this problem be rectified.

Not a great recording

Am loving the series - despite starting to lose track of all the characters (there seem to be new ones added each novel) and becoming slightly bored with the use of the word "woolhead". Unfortunately this recording is not so good - there are numerous occassions where lines are repeated and although one accepts the odd error, there are just too many in this book. One wonders why in this digital age they can't simply edit it out? Audible?

Missing Chapters

Chapters 32, 33 and the majority of chapter 34 are missing from this recording. Track 225 ends as chapter 31 should and track 226 picks up most of the way through chapter 34. Tracks 240 to 253 are a repeat of the last part of chapter 34 to the end of the book.

As many other reviewers have stated many sentences are repeated throughout the audiobook, and having the chapters broken down into 253 4-7 min tracks can be annoying. I have also noticed a drop in audio quality compared to the previous books.

I would recommend skipping the audio version of this book if you can, and just picking up the paperback/kindle version. Save yourself the money/credit.

Awesome book, bad audiobook editing

Really bad editing problems where an entire section would just loop throughout the book, other than that, it's one of my favourite in the series and I recommend it to everyone.

a tale of immense detail vs no detail

this like most of the wheel of time books are very long. but the detail to me is misplaced, he works into many plots with a huge amount of effort but then the plot climax that has taken hours to get to is always brief and somewhat of a letdown.
but all in all i enjoy these books.
