Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.



  • In this audiobook, I noticed a few instances where the sound skipped during the intense parts of the story. Since it's a digital version, I know it's not an issue with the "tape," so there might be an issue with the original master copy from which this digital edition was made.
  • After the fourth book in the series, it feels like 'The Wheel of Aes Sedai' would be a more fitting title. The most disappointing aspect is how the Aes Sedai characters come across as immature 11-year-olds when it comes to playing the game of houses. They exhibit qualities of being clumsy, overly emotional, stubborn, power-hungry individuals with inflated egos. The moments when the story doesn't focus on them are exceptional, earning an A++ rating. However, the issue arises when approximately 75% of the narrative revolves around the Aes Sedai. On the other hand, the dragon reborn, who is supposed to be the protagonist, only receives about 3% of the spotlight in this book and an even more minuscule 0.1% in the previous one. It appears that I was mistaken about who the main character is meant to be; it is, in fact, the Aes Sedai.
  • The audio files for this book could definitely use some improvement. I haven't even made it through the prologue yet, and there have been several instances where the audio has become so distorted that it's impossible to understand.
  • Robert Jordan has a reputation for taking his sweet time to set up and resolve plots, not to mention his detailed descriptions. This eleventh book in The Wheel of Time series is no exception. It starts off slow, but picks up the pace about a third of the way through. Finally, the Perrin/Faile plot is resolved, the Mat/Tuon plot reaches its climax, and even Elayne's story has a purpose. Overall, this book is a significant improvement compared to the previous few, but it lacks some of the earlier books' grandeur and fast pace. Personally, I'm disappointed that my favorite character, Rand, has such a small role in this book. Come on, RJ, use Rand more, he's so cool! With just one book left (apparently), you won't want to miss out on this one. It almost makes up for the last three books in the series... almost.
  • This book, "Knife of Dreams: Book Eleven of The Wheel of Time," is a significant step up from CROT, breathing new life into the series. Not only does the storyline progress, but numerous important unresolved elements are finally addressed. Robert Jordan truly makes amends with this installment and ignites my enthusiasm for what's to come in the next book.
  • In this universe, it seems like the people from the 2 rivers are quite lacking in intelligence, similar to how some might perceive West Virginia in our world. It's interesting to note that the author of this series doesn't seem to hold women in high regard, as none of them are portrayed as valuable characters. They are either arrogant, manipulative, or simply awful. It's unfortunate for Brandon Sanderson to have to continue the story after such a disappointing installment. The claim that Perrin is not unintelligent, as stated by the narrator, is completely false. He seems to be quite foolish, like the Forrest Gump of his time. If there were instructions on the sole of a boot on how to pour piss, Perrin would surely struggle. It's almost unbelievable how Rand manages to restrain himself from physically hurting every woman around him.
  • If you're a fan of Robert Jordan, you likely know that he's battling a serious illness, which puts his family and fans in the position of potentially losing an incredible literary talent. Robert Jordan has gifted fantasy fans with a monumental epic, and as I write this, I sincerely hope that he's granted the time to provide us with a fitting conclusion to this remarkable series, and continue creating more masterpieces. Thank you, Robert, and may you recover swiftly. Begin from the start and devour them all - some may be slower in pace, some faster, with both lows and many highs. Ultimately, the brilliance of the author shines through.
