Inhaltsangabe

The Wheel of Time is a PBS Great American Read Selection!

Now in development for TV!

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

The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, looms. And mankind is not ready.

The final volume of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, was partially written by Robert Jordan before his untimely passing in 2007. Brandon Sanderson, New York Times best-selling author of the Mistborn books, and now Stormlight Archive, among others, was chosen by Jordan's editor - his wife, Harriet McDougal - to complete the final volume, later expanded to three books. In this epic novel, Robert Jordan's international best-selling series begins its dramatic conclusion.  

Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

Egwene al'Vere, the Amyrlin Seat of the rebel Aes Sedai, is a captive of the White Tower and subject to the whims of their tyrannical leader. As days tick toward the Seanchan attack she knows is imminent, Egwene works to hold together the disparate factions of Aes Sedai while providing leadership in the face of increasing uncertainty and despair. Her fight will prove the mettle of the Aes Sedai, and her conflict will decide the future of the White Tower - and possibly the world itself. 

TV series update: "Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Judkins previously worked on shows such as ABC’s Agents of SHIELD, the Netflix series Hemlock Grove, and the NBC series Chuck. Red Eagle partners Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will executive produce along with Radar’s Ted Field and Mike Weber. Darren Lemke will also executive produce, with Jordan’s widow Harriet McDougal serving as consulting producer." (Variety)

Kritikerstimmen

"The Wheel of Time...is a fantasy tale seldom equaled and still less often surpassed in English." ( Chicago Sun-Times)
"Jordan has a powerful vision of good and evil - but what strikes me as most pleasurable...is all the fascinating people moving through a rich and interesting world." (Orson Scott Card on The Wheel of Time)

lang ersehnt... (no spoilers!)

Nach dem Tod von Robert Jordan war ich sehr frustiert vermutlich nie das geplante Ende meiner Lieblings-Serie mitzuerleben - doch der Fertigstellung durch Brandon Sanderson stand ich reichlich skeptisch gegenüber.
Grundlos!
Die Fortführung sowohl inhaltlich als auch stilistisch ist gelungen und nach all den Jahren war ich sofort wieder in den Bann der Geschichte gezogen (allerdings habe ich auch vorher die Bände 1-11 nochmal angehört - kann ich nur empfehlen da das Machwerk inzwischen doch recht komplexe Handlungsstränge führt und mein letzter "Durchgang" einige Jaher her war).
Dieser Teil ist vielleicht etwas "psychologischer" als "actionlastig", die Faszination und Spannung sind jedoch ungebrochen. Während immer wieder offenen Fragen aus den früheren Bänden aufgegriffen werden entstehen genug weiteret Ansatzpunkte um die Diskussion über den Ausgang der Geschichtet und mögliche Interpretationen der Geschehnisse anzuregen.
Einen großen Teil des Hörgenußes sind für mich die bewährten Sprecher Michael Kramer und Kate Redding, die auch Buch 12 wie schon die ersten 11 Bände zu echtem "Kopfkino" werden lassen.
Fazit: ein MUSS für alle Fans - mich hat der "Randland"-Virus wieder voll gepackt!
"Neueinsteiger" beware - ohne Vorkenntnisse wird es schwierig den Personen und Beweggründen zu folgen und daher (besonders bei der Länge des Buches) sicher entweder nervig oder langweilig.

ausgezeichnete Fortsetzung

Lange, lange erwartete Fortsetzung der WOT Serie. Nach meiner Meinung ganz ausgezeichnete (keine Spoiler hier!) Weiterführungung der Handlungstränge um die Hauptpersonen. Ich liebe die ganze Reihe und empfehle sie allen High Fantasy Fans, diese Reihe muss man kennen. Wieder wunderbar gelesen.

Beyond my dearest hopes

I admit, I was anxious and afraid, after what happend with Dune. Like there, manuscripts where found (well in this case not found but prepared) which then were given to another author to complete the story.
After reading about splitting the final book into three full sized books I was afraid, there might a lot of stallment just to make them three books and get the money.
I was overwhelmed and surprised in a good way, when I startet listening to the book.
Well first I thought "Robert Jordan might have done the entry a bit better" but the more I listened the better it got and at the end I was convinced, that even if Robert Jordan may had written it differently, the difference would have been marginal at best. And I doubt one could one pick one better over the other.
Brandon Sanderson did a hell of job writing this book with all expectancys fullfilled and even more. Robert Jordan would have not only approved what Brandon Sanderson did with his manuscripts, but loved to read (listen to) them himself. The Story goes on without stalling. The charackters are authentic as one might expect them to act. And I do now believe Robert Jordan would have split the final book into three, too.
I look forward for the other two books with high hopes, wich I no longer doubt to be fullfilled.
Thank you Mr. Sanderson
