4.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable, 30 Nov 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Great Hunt: Book 2 of the Wheel of Time (Hardcover)
This is the second book in Jordan's wheel of time series and it is hard to review it in isolation. I'm going to assime you've read the first book only.
What happens here? Well we get to meet the Amyrlin, Rand gets told he's the Dragon Reborn (obvious at the end of the last book but it gets confirmed) and we get to learn a little more about the Aes Sedai as both Egwene and Nynaeve start their training. Other than that there's not too much plot development. This is something of a character book, you get to watch the characters grow and change. You also learn some more things about the world and the prophecies that Rand al Thor is to fulfill.
This is not the best book in the series - volume 4 takes that honour - but it is an enjoyable read and has the unputdownable quality that I like in books. This is enhanced by the habit, first done in this volume, of having the chapters written from the viewpoint of major characters. Thus you think you'll put the book down after finishing this chapter on Rand when you see the next one's about Egwene and you're wondering what she's been up to. This is a recipe for staying up till the early hours thinking "just one more chapter" Be warned!
