Book Title: Eye of the World by Robert Jordan (Wheel of Time) Comments and Book Review:
Ok here we go, if you have a year or two of spare time and love to read epic fantasy stories and i mean super long, awesome epic stories then the wheel of time is for you. This post I will focus on the first book of the series but you can buy the entire 14 book box set below as well, and really it would be worth it if you plan on reading the whole yarn.
Its an oldie time type story, you know the deal, swords and stuff, no technology, certainly no interwebs....and it starts off with a boy on his farm dealie then they get attacked by creatures, rescued in the nick of time (no way! that never happens) and well it turns out this village and the boy and his friends are very special indeed. I dont want to ruin it, and to be honest the first book moves very slow and you will be confused to start off and well sometimes later on in the series you will be confused as well. There is a massive amount of characters to remember and sometimes you can find yourself saying "oh yeah...that dude, now i remember". Anywho like i said i dont wanna ruin it for you but the early characters all turn out to be massive piece of the wheel.
As you finish the first book you will want to quickly be grabbing the second and so on and before you know it you have 2 days worth of beard and you smell, thats because you couldnt put down the books and time did fly by. Go grab a shower, let your eyes come back into something resembling focus and then start turning those pages again. I did end up reading this series, several times...My review...just get the book but dont judge it on the first book alone because imo its the weakest of the lot.
The author Robert Jordan Died before he could finish it and his family and another author did manage to give it a nice finish based on his notes and snippets of finished product.Amazon Purchase links: The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, Book 1) - $8.09The Complete Wheel of Time Series Set (All Books 1 Thru 14) - $149.99
