  1. Despite some of the pronunciation issues (which were fairly minor in my opinion....easy enough to figure out what they are talking about) I thoroughly enjoyed the audio books. I think Kate and Micheal are great narrators, in this series and many others. It's all a matter of opinion of course, but I highly recommend the audio books
  2. She also had the respect and friendship of Bain and Chiad, two maidens of the spear. Possibly Faile's connection with them added to the interest of Cha Faile. Perrin also had a strong connection with Gaul.
  3. Bayaz is up there for certain. I'll agree with Bayaz (I'm almost done the last book, and I sense he may be more of a jerk than I originally thought. I'll find out soon enough). But I find a lot of the other characters kind of endearing. I especially like Glokta and The Bloody Nine. You gotta be realistic about these things....say one thing about Logen Ninefingers, say he's pretty bada$$. Jezal has come a long way too, I think. Maybe my opinions will change as I get to the end of this last book, but for the most part I liked the characters. Thats the great thing about all forms of art I guess.....we can all enjoy them, even if one different levels.
  4. Thanks for everything Luckers!!!
  5. I'm just glad that the audio books were released the same day. I'm a single father of 2 kids and also work full time, so my schedule doesn't really allow for pleasure reading. Without the audio version of the series to enjoy on my commute or while house cleaning, etc. I would have never got to experience the series. It has been mentioned that E-book sales can be "messy" when determining best seller rank, and it's been mentioned that they are not determining factors at all. I'm not sure which is true, but it seems that the audio version does not share that trait, since it was released the same day. Is there a difference in how audio sales and electronic sales are calculated?
  6. Definitely put me under the banner of Durinax! For the Maple Leaf!!!!!
  7. I just finished listening to this part on the way to work this morning...When Verin asks him why he didn't ask where she got the drawings of him, he said "I figured you just Saidar-ed it" Hilarious!!
  8. Trade that cig for a pipe full of Two Rivers Tabac and it would be perfect!! Even still...Mat is definitely the first thing I think of when seeing it.
  9. Thanks for all the work you have done in presenting the gems you've found (and for the flashback to statistics class) I've thoroughly enjoyed every post in your Fan Art Fridays, and I will miss it as well.
  10. I agree that Micheal and Kate are top notch when it comes to narrators. I'm also glad to hear that I am not the only one who likes to hear a British accent, although I agree that it wouldn't fit with the WOT series. Micheal and Kate did a great job with The Way of Kings, IMO. Two more of my favorites are Jonathon Davis and Marc Thompson, who have done a lot of the Star Wars novels.
