  • Rosamund Pike wins an Audie award for her narration of The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

The Wheel of Time actress, Rosamund Pike, a fan favorite known for playing Moiraine on the Prime Video TV series, has won an Audie award for Best Female Narrator for her recording of The Eye of the World

The Audies are awarded for the best audiobooks by the Audio Publishers Association (APA). The Eye of the World was released in November 2021 by Macmillan Audio. During her acceptance speech Rosamund acknowledged the narrators of the previous versions of the audiobooks, Michael Kramer and Kate Reading.



The only reason I had the opportunity do it was because Michael Kramer and Kate Reading have done the entire series of these books before me. Fourteen books and hours and hours of recordings.

And it’s only thanks to their success with those books and the listeners they garnered, that Macmillan embarked on the idea of doing this series afresh to accompany our series.


Rosamund also mentioned that her mother, Caroline Friend, was the director of the audio book, and that the third audiobook, (The Dragon Reborn) will be released in June 2023.
