Having the wherewithal to look back on last weeks edition of the world famous audiobook recap blog series, I noticed that I had the foresight to include The Two Rivers in the subtitle and not talk about, you know, The Two Rivers. That was of course intentional and not at all because I forgot so without further ado lets get into it.

Wherewithal is one of those words that sounds like it is a high brow vocabulary word but I think we all use it too much and now it has lost that effect. This has nothing to do with The Two Rivers or our boy Perrin but I found this important enough to mention.

Perrin is finally in The Two Rivers and he is not having a good time. Him and his assorted fellows all meet at the Winespring Inn where no one is happy to see him. Now I don’t know about you but I hate delivering bad news so I feel for the al’Vere’s when they have to tell Perrin the Whitecloaks murked his whole family. Thats a tough pill to swallow on your homecoming. Equally as bad is that pretty much half the town hates him. That would eat at my insecurity, which makes my choice of throwing my writing out there to the world with a very clear picture of myself an odd choice of hobby.

Because Perrin is a boss he takes it in stride, eventually understanding that life ain’t for the feint of heart and starts to plan his conquering of The Two Rivers. Unlike me, who was openly weeping while running, which sadly is not the first time that has happened along this journey. Essentially what gets him over it is what gets men over pretty much anything, some girl giving him attention.

So in order to take over The Two Rivers he has to go to meet up with the man who birthed our hero, bid daddy Cauthon. That was not the way I wished to write that, but it is out there so here we are. They all head over to the woods and run into, surprise surprise, some Aes Sedai fuckboys. Its ya homie Verin, who is up there on my favorites, and her two warders along with Abel and Tam. A real murders row. I love that Abel is giving Perrin advice on women, it just shows that pimping runs in the Cauthon blood.

Eventually they all decide that it might be best to go free all the people the Whitecloaks have swiped. Which I think I will save for next week, as I am running out of gas on this blog. Happy Friday everyone!

Final Notes: Biggggggg announcement for 2020 coming out soon. Just waiting to finalize some things but I once everything is set up I will let everyone know.

One thought on “The Shadow Rising Audiobook Update 6: Two Rivers gang

  1. Enjoyed your humor, self-deprecating in one place, and your always insightful, clever analysis.
    The Public Defender

    BTW, Watch for “Washington” on the History Channel in February. His heroism is neither pure nor fantasy.
