  • This story wasn't exactly "bad," but it did feel a bit uneventful when compared to the previous books in the series. It seemed like there were more love stories happening than actually advancing the plot, but I suppose that's why it's called the "heart" of winter. Nevertheless, I'm still going to stick with the series to see how this massive epic tale concludes.
  • The audio book 'Winter's Heart: Wheel of Time, Book 9' is absolutely terrible. It's got some major issues like missing chapters and random repetitions of the last 30 seconds that occur throughout the book.
  • After listening to 'Winter's Heart: Wheel of Time, Book 9', I encountered an issue around two hours and five minutes before the conclusion. At that point, the audio abruptly ceased playing. I attempted to resolve the problem by deleting and re-downloading the book, but unfortunately, the same issue persisted at the exact same spot.
  • When I initially dove into the Wheel of Time series, I couldn't help but feel that it gets weighed down by its own complexity. However, I discovered that listening to it at a faster speed of 2.0 makes it more manageable. Nevertheless, there are still chapters that seem completely pointless and characters that can be quite dull and monotonous. My ongoing criticism of the Wheel of Time remains unchanged: About 70% of it is undeniably the most captivating story ever penned by an American author, while the remaining 30% can be incredibly frustrating, to the point where you almost want to extract your own teeth out of sheer exasperation.
  • Winter's Heart: Wheel of Time, Book 9, is a narrative that progresses at a sluggish pace, with significant events unfolding only in the final chapter. Surprisingly, this concluding chapter holds immense importance in the series. It remains perplexing why the rest of the book drags on so tediously. Nevertheless, pushing through is essential, as the story improves, particularly when Brandon Sanderson assumes authorship.
  • I didn't really agree with many of the reviews for this one. I was tempted to return it, but I ultimately decided to give it a chance, and I was pleasantly surprised. Sure, there's a heavy focus on the female characters' perspectives, but that doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing. It's true that the book is quite verbose, but honestly, the entire series has been that way, so I'm not bothered by it. Don't let the negative reviews discourage you from being interested, as it does provide important information for the rest of the series. Reviewed in December 2021.
  • I listened to this book using my iPhone and didn't encounter any problems. You have to download three files, each divided into segments of about 6 minutes, but I didn't notice any interruptions between them. Some people complained about the audio quality, but I thought it was fine and on par with the previous books. There were a few repeated sentences here and there, but it wasn't a big deal. Some older reviews might make you think there were hours of repeated sentences and paragraphs, but that's not the case. Overall, the book itself is great and I'm excited to start with book 10. Don't pay too much attention to the negative reviews. Just enjoy!
  • I've listened to all the audiobooks in the series without any problems until now. They've been a great way to pass the time on long car rides. However, I have a major issue with this particular book. Instead of starting with the very first chapter, it begins on chapter 13, skipping everything that comes before. I didn't realize this at first, and now I'm completely lost with all the events happening that I have no prior knowledge of. I compared it to my physical copy of the book and discovered that the audiobook is missing a whopping 340 pages. This has left me feeling highly frustrated. Now I have to go back and read what I missed to catch up.
  • Winter's Heart: Wheel of Time, Book 9 is filled with captivating elements such as the Seafolk, Seanchan, Ashaman, Shaido, and more. However, it is unfortunate that there is a lack of substantial progress in the overall story. The focus on Elayne's uninteresting succession war outweighs the time spent on Matt's intriguing experiences in Ebou Dar. Additionally, while promoting women power and equality is admirable, it becomes evident that the author may have been influenced by his wife, who served as the editor. This aspect becomes quite bothersome quite quickly. Overall, apart from the last 50 minutes, there is a noticeable absence of significant plot developments that would further the narrative from the previous eight books.
