Product Description

Book Description

For twenty years the Wheel of Time has enthralled more than forty million readers in over thirty-two languages. The Sunday Times number one bestseller A Memory of Light brings this majestic epic series to its richly satisfying conclusion.

Product Description

'And it came to pass in those days, as it had come before and would come again, that the Dark lay heavy on the land and weighed down the hearts of men, and the green things failed, and hope died.' - Charal Drianaan te Calamon, The Cycle of the Dragon.

In the Field of Merrilor the rulers of the nations gather to join behind Rand al'Thor, or to stop him from his plan to break the seals on the Dark One's prison - which may be a sign of his madness, or the last hope of humankind. Egwene, the Amyrlin Seat, leans toward the former.

In Andor, the Trollocs seize Caemlyn.

In the wolf dream, Perrin Aybara battles Slayer.

Approaching Ebou Dar, Mat Cauthon plans to visit his wife Tuon, now Fortuona, Empress of the Seanchan.

All humanity is in peril - and the outcome will be decided in Shayol Ghul itself. The Wheel is turning, and the Age is coming to its end. The Last Battle will determine the fate of the world. . .

For twenty years The Wheel of Time has enthralled more than forty million readers in over thirty-two languages. A Memory of Light brings this majestic fantasy creation to its richly satisfying conclusion.

Working from notes and partials left by Robert Jordan when he died in 2007, and consulting with Jordan's widow, who edited all of Jordan's books, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson has recreated the vision Jordan left behind.

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
The Wheel of Time is finished. That's a statement that's going to take a while to get used to. The first volume of the series, The Eye of the World, was published in January 1990. George Bush Snr. and Margaret Thatcher were still in power and the Cold War was still ongoing. Fourteen books, four million words, eleven thousand pages and over fifty million sales (in North America alone) later, the conclusion has finally arrived. Can it possibly live up to the expectations built up over that time?

It is a tribute to the plotting powers of Robert Jordan, the writing skill of Brandon Sanderson (who took over the series after Jordan's untimely death in 2007) and the hard work of Jordan's editors and assistants that A Memory of Light is - for the most part - a triumphant finale. Given the weight of expectations resting on the novel, not to mention the unfortunate circumstances under it was written, it is unsurprising that it is not perfect. The novel occasionally misfires, is sometimes abrupt in how it resolves long-running plot strands and sometimes feels inconsistent with what has come before. However, it also brings this juggernaut of an epic fantasy narrative to an ending that makes sense, is suitably massive in scope and resolves the series' thematic, plot and character arcs satisfactorily - for the most part.

It is a familiar viewpoint that The Wheel of Time is a slow-burning series, with Robert Jordan not afraid to have his characters sitting around talking about things for entire chapters (or, in one case, an entire novel) rather than getting on with business.

I am still reeling from disappointment. I thought Brandon Sanderson did a great job on "The Gathering Storm" and "Towers of Midnight" but "A Memory of Light" has left me so disappointed, I don't know how to get it out of my head except to write this dumbo review. Basically, the story didn't have cohesion - there was way too much superfluous stuff going on that didn't have to be included, while primary issues that needed to be developed toward a successful build-up were just left blowing in the wind.

I'm going to list some stuff I hated so don't read if you don't want to see some massive spoilers. These items are not listed in any order.

*Spoilers*

#1 - Lan and Nynaeve had no time together in this book except for a couple of sentences at the very end.

#2 - Perrin spends page after page after page in the dreamworld trying to find Slayer and kill him - boring, boring...

#3 - The 4 great generals who have oversight of the battle are compromised by compulsion via Graendel. After the buildup of these great men, we see Bryne, Bashere, Ituralde and Agelmar being removed from command and sitting useless. Purely disrespectful way to end the careers of these great men.

#4 - The Aiel might just as well have been left out of this book - oh, wait a minute, in my opinion - they were!

#5 - The nation of Shara shows up during the last battle - did we really need one more element added to the already bursting balloon of confusion going on? This one was ridiculous. They were not a well known people. If the author needed some other people to battle besides the boring Trollocs, why not send in the Shaido? But then again, the "good" Aiel might have had to actually have a role to play in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not with a whimper but with a bang 10 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I feel emotionally battered and bruised after finishing A Memory of Light but also satisfied.

After the last 20 years I am used to the enjoyable slow burn of the Wheel of Time novels. The final novel in the series, 'A Memory of Light' is different. It is brutal, an assault on the senses, the action does not relent and you are left in no doubt the 'Last Battle' is here.

The book itself is epic. The battle scenes are intense and are wonderfully written. Characters finish their arcs sometimes in blazes of glory, other times in brutally unexpected ways, and the heroes journeys are ended.

A very minor gripe is that the ending left many subplots open for interpretation which is not normally a bad thing but somewhere deep down I feel that after a 20+ year investment I could have seen a slightly longer epilogue.

As a side note to the publisher I was also slightly frustrated I was unable to get this as an ebook/kindle on release.

A very worthy end to a wonderful series.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag 7 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
I was disappointed in this finale to the series. For the most part it was well paced, and difficult to put down. I was thoroughly enjoying it, and finding it difficult to put down. So why the disappointment? After 14 long volumes, all of them substantial books, it felt that the series had been finished just too quickly, in something of a rush. Yes, I know that Robert Jordan had planned the last three books to be just one volume; I don't think that was ever going to happen. But even splitting them into three parts seems to be a rush job.
The outcome for Rand is just sloppy. Walking away in a new body, leaving everyone behind him? The Rand al'Thor who had regained his humanity in the last two books? Not very probable. He could have died in humanity's cause, or lived on to rebuild the world, but not this! What becomes of Elayne and her two realms? What of Mat? Is he to rule Seanchan with Tuon? Perrin and Faile? Surely not retirement to a provincial forge! Will the Aes Sedai, the Kin and the Wavefinders find common ground? And Cadsuane as the Amyrlin Seat!!! Moiraine or Elayne would have been fine, but a woman who has spent several hundred years avoiding responsibility taking the post at such a crucial time?
All these questions and many others demanded another two to three hundred pages, or even another volume. I suppose there was pressure to finish the series, but it does feel like a missed opportunity. On the positive side the writing was good, with a scarcely noticeable transition from Jordan to Sanderson.
All in all a concluding volume which delights and disappoints in equal measure.
