The Ultimate Good vs Evil Story
on 19 April 2017
I'll be quick, The Eye of the World is a fantastic book. Being a huge lover of Lord of the Rings, this book and its lore has some similarities to LOTR as well as being original and fresh. The journey the characters go through in this book are amazing, there are about 7 prominent characters all of which have their own unique personality which you will either love or slightly dislike them for (all for good reasons). The story is fantastic, it makes imagine how you would act and feel if suddenly you pleasant and peaceful life suddenly changed and you had no choice but to leave a place you love. There are times however which will require you to look in the Glossary to understand particular names, places and lore about what the characters are talking about and doing (but this is something I love). Jordan's world building is simply outstanding, a book that makes you wish you were part of the journey just shows how good the book actually is.
Its the first part of a 14 book long series, if you are a lover of fantasy novels and you want to sink your teeth into something worth while than look no further than The Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World.
