A glorious tale.
For myself, this is where it all began. The Eye of the World, the first book in Robert Jordan's wonderful saga, was the first book I ever loved.
The story begins, like many, in a quiet town of little consequence. But oh, how the scale and excitement grow after this humble beginning.
The main character, Rand al'Thor, is one you will quickly feel real emotion for. Even in the later books (be warned, this is a well-established and somewhat lengthy series of novels) I always feel a great thrill when reading of his adventures in particular. That is not to say, though, that the other characters are any less absorbing! The books have quite a wide selection of characters, male and female, and many have entire chapters where the story is told from their individual perspectives; although the books are told mostly from the eyes of a specific few. Each has their own ambitions, responsibilities or destiny, and they all blend together to give a truly wonderful and wide-angled view of the unfolding events in the rich world that Jordan (author) creates.
The story itself is one of magic, prophecy and a good old struggle between good and evil. It's creative and inspiring, and most importantly, exciting. You'll really *care* about the characters, and thrill as the story twists and turns. It comes with my absolute highest recommendation. by Thomas Plattunder review
