1.0 von 5 Sternen This is ridiculous 21. August 2014
I wanted to buy this. Then I saw the price. Is it April 1st? No? Ok, see you after the price drop.

Just to make it clear: Every fan of epic fantasy should read this, but please don't buy this rip-off! The sum of the individual books is WAY cheaper!

5 star for the books, 5 star for the idea of a single kindle volume, negative stars for the price if there were such a thing.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Buy 14, pay 15? 6. März 2015
Von Peter
14 books, each between 5 and 8 €... let's say 7€ each on average -> 98 € for all.
Actual price for the all-in-one collection: 106€...not exactly a deal, I would say.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wheel of Time - Complete 14. April 2015
Von A.L.
Verifizierter Kauf
As an owner of the paperback version of this epic masterpiece I was looking for a digital copy for my kindle reader. I came across this complete edition which contains all main books (1-14) plus the prequel ("0") "New Spring". So you get all 15 books in one bundle - exactly what I wanted!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Crazy? 22. April 2015
Von Fan
Did you mess something up in your calculator?
Normally a collection like this should give a nice $ benefit or some other bonus extras.
1€ savings over buying all books individually is not exactly what i thought about.

1.0 von 5 Sternen High on price, low on features 16. August 2014
Von Jacob - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I was excited to get this entire series on kindle. I expected that for the high price it would be full of features such as kindle X-Ray. Unfortunately I was quite disappointed to find that it has no X-Ray features, just a high cost.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Five stars for the series, but this is not your best deal 2. September 2014
Von mark chandler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
At current prices, you can beat this deal by $15 by buying all of the books individually and you get the prequel "New Spring" in the bargain. This one does not include the prequel, so if you compare apples to apples, you are saving nearly $22.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I really like the series but I had to nit-pick 25. November 2014
Von Richard Ranft - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Four instead of five - Here it is:

1) Do we really need the glossary between each book?
2) These books have been out for a minute - I'm still catching (slight) mistakes. Usually a duplicate word here or there.
3) I would expect the font size to remain the same from book to book.

I really like the series but I had to nit-pick.

3.0 von 5 Sternen The Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills 30. Juni 2015
Von EA Solinas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
The Wheel of Time Series is probably the biggest epic-fantasy series in literary history. Not in terms of popularity -- although it definitely was a perennial bestseller -- but in terms of bulk.

But they bundled all fifteen books together in "The Complete Wheel of Time," from the backstory-filling prequel "New Spring" to the long-awaited grand finale in "A Memory of Light." Robert Jordan's series is both captivating and violently frustrating -- it was a sprawling, complicated epic, full of classic fantasy tropes and an air of myth and legend, but the middle of the series bogged itself down until near the end of the story.

It tells the story of Rand al'Thor, a young man from a humble village known as the Two Rivers (think the Shire, but with more gender-based bickering and less food), whose life is disrupted by the arrival of a Fade and a horde of Trollocs. They attack his farm and nearly kill his father, searching for young men of a certain age. It turns out that they're hunting him, of course, because he is actually the Dragon Reborn, a legendary reincarnated warrior both feared and revered across the world. He's also the only male in the world who can use magic without going bonkers.

The Aes Sedai sorceress Morgaine and her companion Lan take Rand (along with his friends Egwene, Mat, Perrin and Nynaeve) on a globe-spanning quest to fight against the Shadow, which can only be accomplished by uniting the kingdoms and peoples before Tarmon Gai'don. But as they struggle to stop the evil forces from taking over, Rand himself grows increasingly dark and -- dare I say it? -- a little bit crazy. Will he be able to save the world, or will he be the one to wreck it?

One thing to not really look for in the "Wheel of Time" series is originality. It has a lot of the standard high fantasy tropes -- special swords, medieval villages, kings, (female) wizards, magic, dark lords, monstrous troops, a Chosen One, and so on -- with some new names and concepts grafted on. And Jordon also took a lot of influence from J.R.R. Tolkien's works, Nordic/Celtic myth, Judeo-Christian and Buddhist theology, Arthurian legend and Campbellian hero myths (particularly for Rand).

And it's those familiar elements that make "The Wheel of Time" palatable despite its complexity -- it has a simple story composed of familiar elements, but presented with lots of political intrigue and increasingly intricate plotting. This also applies to many of the characters, who are familiar types (wise mentor, naive farm boy, smart girl) who remain tied to Rand's story, but who have their own subplots and wacky adventures across the world. Some of them involve wolves, insanity, magical weapons, and a massive heat wave.

So what's the big problem? That would be the fact that the plot starts slowing down after the third book... and by the eighth book, "A Path of Daggers," the spinning wheels had dug a rut that Jordan never wrote the story out of. The following volumes were nothing but padded filler, riddled with Jordan's infuriating literary tics (women folding their arms under their breasts) and drawn-out descriptions of literally everything the characters see, feel and encounter. The series only arose from that rut when Brandon Sanderson took over after Jordan's death, and the final three books are much richer and substantial than the volumes immediately preceding them.

"The Complete Wheel of Time" is a simple story given plenty of texture and intricacy, despite a sagging, motionless middle section that nearly derails the entire series. If you can stomach that part, it's an entertaining if not particularly deep high fantasy series.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Horrifically Poor Formatting 29. Juni 2015
Von Siavahda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Riddled with typos, particularly in The Shadow Rising. The font size doesn't even stay the same from one book to the next. Appallingly bad and nowhere near worth the price of the omnibus.
