Audio clip of The Eye of The World plus Audiobook Giveaway!



By Linda



The Year of the Dragon has begun and it will see the last volume of The Wheel of Time where, we hope, the Dragon Reborn will defeat the Dark One’s attempts to end the world.

Until the audio previews of a chapter of The Gathering Storm and Towers of Midnight , I had never heard the The Wheel of Time audiobooks, which means I really missed something. The audiobooks are published simultaneously with the printed books and amazingly, the same narrators, Kate Reading and Michael Kramer, have been with the series from the beginning.

In the run-up to the publication of A Memory of Light, I will be featuring the audiobooks by posting a clip from each audio volume of the series in turn provided to me by TOR every three weeks or so. TOR have also kindly provided me with a copy to give away to a lucky reader.

This week’s audioclip has Michael Kramer narrating an excerpt of Chapter 2 of The Eye of the World. The 7th reader to comment below will receive a digital download of The Eye of the World audiobook.

I am using the audiobooks while cleaning, doing the dishes and things like that. I can't reread the older books anymore because the paperbacks are falling apart and the audiobook is a great alternative. I have nearly finished The Eye of the World.

Audiobooks are great for re-reads while commuting!

Well, I think I'm late but I have listened to the whole series on audiobook due to my 2 hours in the car every day. Would love to win.

Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are really great at bringing this series to life. Even when re-reading the books and passages it is their narration I hear in my head! I really hope someone new to the audiobooks wins and can enjoy.
Linda, just when I think I will take a break from these books I catch some in-depth insight from your Blog and get all fired up again.

Many thanks...
