Read the wheel of time series years ago. So it is nice to get a look at some of the characters. Len and Morriane what a couple. Got a chuckle out of the stunts she pulled on him.
The narrators are two of my favorites. The both read the entire wheel of time series and author Branderson stormlight series.
it was lovely, I enjoyed it very much, well paced in the writing.i can't wait to listen in on the others.
Great book explains a few things before the series
The wheel of time has always been my favorite series. Robert Jordan is a master at writing. The narrators are really good in this book.
A brilliant story assisted by marvelous narrators. I loved running into the characters from the main story and listening to how they behaved earlier in their lives.
My one complaint is how difficult it is to listen to all the words that describe the settings in Robert Jordan's world. Character development takes up a tremendous amount of space in his novels. In this book as well.
He describes an Aes Sedai's dress with all the ruffles and frills it carries for twenty miles. When my mind comes back to the story he is then describing the rings on her finger. Come on. I get it already. She's wearing a beautiful dress and pretty rings can we please get on with it?
But by the end of the story I love all the characters. Especially when comparing them to characters created in other novels.
I am presently listening to the entire Wheel of Time series in chronological order. I am in awe of Jordan's creative mind. "New Spring" has added greatly to my understanding of two favorite main characters and provided insight into their motivation and relationship. I can't imagine reading the series without including this delightful book.
