This book is a little flat compared to the books before it. Its a filler and not much happens but, the constant nagging of all the female characters seems to lesson which is great.

In this volume, Elayne, Aviendha, and Mat come ever closer to the bowl ter'angreal that may reverse the world's endless heat wave and restore natural weather. Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel: Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others. And above all, Rand faces the dread Forsaken Sammael, in the shadows of Shadar Logoth, where the blood-hungry mist, Mashadar, waits for prey.

This is most likely the last I will read of Robert Jordan. He had such a magnificent and creative mind where his ability to delve into great detail is amazing. However, this same attention to detail is often what makes me wanna stop. He spends entire chapters describing one thing which has at times already been described in another book. Also, nearly all his female characters are constantly complaining with few of them actually likeable..... I do still want to know what happens though.

Winner of the Audiobook Download of the Year, 2007.

As the author of many classic works on science and philosophy, Richard Dawkins has always asserted the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm it has inflicted on society. He now focuses his fierce intellect exclusively on this subject, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

Very interesting and helped me understand matters that I knew of, but was not able to accurately form them into relevant ideas of what I do, and do not believe. I think if I read this instead of listen, it would have been to difficult for me to understand. Listening to this gave me opportunity to use my attention on understanding his concepts... Worth a listen but keep an open mind for those of faith.

According to mythology, mankind used to live in 'The Tranquiline Halls': heaven. But then the Voidbringers assaulted and captured heaven, casting out God and men. Men took root on Roshar, the world of storms, but the Voidbringers followed. The Almighty gave men powerful suits of armor and mystical weapons, the Shardblades. Led by 10 angelic Heralds and 10 orders of knights known as Radiants, mankind finally won (or so the legends say).

I loved this sooooo much, characters are well developed, are all different enough to add to an exciting read and despite it's very long read/listen, it's worth every second. Brandon Sanderson has quickly become one of my faves.

Such a great story with so many things happening and I really want to know whats happening next. Though the female characters are nearly always complaining and whining that it's hard to like any of them and found myself getting frustrated because of it. Was read very well as usual and despite my negative points, I'm listening to the next one.

As "Scarecrow" Schofield watches his mission turn into a bloodbath, he realises he has been tricked - and that now he's become the prey rather than the predator. For a shadowy consortium has included his name on a list of 15 targets to be eliminated without fail by 12 noon that same day. Now, every high-powered bounty hunter on the planet is on his trail, while he must simultaneously track down the perpetrators of a conspiracy about to reduce many of the major cities of the world to ashes.

I absolutely love Matthew Reilly. However, this is not his best as there are points in it that are so over kill, even for him (aka. a car flipping then scrapping to only land and keep going with nothing broken) that it's hard not cringe at the ridiculousness. Otherwise, still loyal and worth listening to apart from one or two points :-).... the speaker did very well though
