The Eye of the World
By: Robert Jordan
The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.
I was first introduced to the Wheel of Time series from the amazon prime show, which I haven’t watched yet. I am curious how different an adaptation will be so I decided to read/listen to the book first. The first installment in the Wheel of Time series follows three boys from the Two Rivers that are Ta’veren. Their adventure takes them out of the comfort of the Two Rivers and to many different cities in the magical world.
My first impressions of the novel was that I liked the adventure. The writing was not as expressive as LOTR or the GoT series and so can better keep my short attention span. The story itself has moments of suspense that makes it very interesting.
My most memorable part of the book is the description of the green mans home. As they discover it in their moment of need.
