Review: The Eye of the world – Robert Jordan

The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

My thoughts this time around:

I am re’reading these books for my WOT challenge and just like so many times before I loved the book. I know it by heart now because I have read it so many times before.

I love Rand and what he is to become, he will always be my fav. His and Mat’s journey in this book is my part and of course when he meets the queen. Gotta love that part and how everyone tells him that he looks like something. Awww, to read that the first time around.

When the book ended I wanted to pick up the next one at once. That is how good this series is, even though I have also re-read book 2 a bunch of times. But I wanted to know what is going to happen…even though I already knew. There is magic in this series, a nostalgic longing grips me every time.

I am not going to go on and on, because I could, I will just keep it short. Awesome series that should be read.

“We rode on the winds of the rising storm, 
We ran to the sounds of the thunder. 
We danced among the lightning bolts, 
and tore the world asunder.”

    I've thought about re-reading the whole series but can't really find the time. But I guess I have to re-read Knife of Dreams before starting The Gathering Storm.
