Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?
Die Soundqualität des Hörbuches ist wesentlich besser als die der Hörprobe. Da hatte ich vor dem Kauf große Sorgen.
Kate Reading und Michael Kramer sind ausgezeichnete Vorleser.

this series is well worth it
After having given up on the Sword of Truth series after book 6 due to varies reasons (see review on Book 5), I decided to try the Wheel of Time. And I must say I've not been disappointed. Currently on book 8, I decided to review Book 1 since I figure most people will start here.
One thing that is extremely well done is the characters and their development. They continue to change and grow while staying true to the basic character traits that are established early on. The characters aren't suddenly changed from one book to the next, leaving the reader wondering what happened nor do they stagnate. The story and its details seem well thought out and planned, not made up by the writer on a whim.
Another thing that usually really bothers me is repetition of the story. I always assume people start from book one... and getting the back story told over and over and over again, frustrates me. That is not to say that there is no repetition in this series, but it is handled in a very clever way, by retelling the same situation (usually whatever happened at or near the end of the previous book) from a different angle, adding more information not just retelling what the reader already knows. It doesn't feel forced and there's no urge to skip the first hour of the story to get to the actual plot.
And on a side note... the readers of this book are excellent. Especially since some of the characters have very similar names, the voice acting of the readers really helps to keep them apart.
I would definitely recommend this series, even though it's long, as of Book 8, it still has enough new plot, character development and interesting new characters to make me want to keep 'reading'
