Prologue Separated? Don't do this...

After having listened to the Gathering Storm, and thoroughly enjoying the next enthralling episode in Jordan's Fantasy Epic series, I looked at this and thought it would be an interview with Brandon Sandersonand Harriett McDougal , similar but in more depth to the one on the main audiobook. It does say in the 'blurb' that it inlcudes a 'bonus recording...' of the 2 people. And so for some reason my mind thought it would be like a mini Audio Documentary about Brandon, Harriett, and of course Jordan, and where to next (the next couple of books).
Boy was I disappointed!! It is literally the 'Prologue' from the book!! The book I ALREADY have!! So this was a complete waste of money.
Okay, if you want to go out and purchase the first 50 pages of a book at Waterstones, and then return later to pay the full amount for the rest of the book (including the pages you have already purchased!) then this audio presentation is for you!! Whoever you are, please make a comment on this review as I am convinced you do not exist. Why would anyone want to do that???
Please do read my review of The Gathering Storm Though when I write it, as this is one of the most exciting of ALL the books in the series (though having just completed book 13, well lets just say that 11, 12 AND 13 are as good as each other!!).
My advice? DON'T BUY THIS!! Buy the real audio book instead. It is worth it, but if you haven't already, start at Book 1 (The Eye of The World), listen through Book 10 (Crossroads of Twilight). Then listen to New Spring (Prequel, but 11th book released by Jordan). Finally, Book 11 (Knife of Dreams) through Book 13 (Towers of Midnight), and the final book out later this year (2011).

Worth the wait! A five star start to the conclusion of this masterly and fantastic epic. Adhering to the highest of standards set by the late lamented Robert Jordan. With something portentous on the horizon, it hooks the listener almost from the first sentence. Can't wait for the complete story.
