Review: The Great Hunt – 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. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of… 

Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages. And it is stolen.

Genre: Fantasy, Series: The Wheel of Time #2, Pages: 707, Published: 2006 (1990), Publisher: Orbit, Source: My own

My thoughts this time around:
Re-reading it for the..well I have read it a lot 
Rand knows he is the Dragon and does not yet believe it. I like the beginning in Shienar and how they hunt the horn later. Because here the threads are coming together and we are starting to believe. 
As always my fav parts are the Rand ones, he is a bookboyfriend for a reason. The Mat and Perrin parts are good too. But the women parts, eh, boring as always. But that is just cos I keep favorites. I never did care to read about Egwene and her buddies in the White Tower. I just want to get to the good parts. Who cares about women.
Honestly what can I say about a book I have re-read lots of times? I still hate the Seanchan! The Children of the Light must die! Fain is annoying and, well I really hate the Seanchan πŸ˜‰ 
I re-read this over the course of 1,5 months. I could just stop in the middle of a page and pick it up days later. I know this story, and I love it. 
Conclusion:
Recommended.

    Ooooo dragons! I have a thing for dragons. Have you read G.A. Aiken's dragon series? I really enjoyed those, and I think I would really enjoy Rand as well:)

  2. Ryan says:

    I adore these books, one of my favorite series of all time. I'm one of those that never got bored or annoyed with how long the books were or the vast arrary of characters. I love them all.

  3. Mirjam says:

    I love this series and like to re-read it occasionally. Although I haven't read The Gathering Storm and Towers of Midnight yet. I am waiting for the book that will end it all to be published and then read one after the other. πŸ™‚

  4. Anachronist says:

    I don't know…the length of this series kind of scares me off. On the other hand I would like to read it as it is fantasy."who cares about women?" – Now I am outraged. I do.

  5. Blodeuedd says:

    Yeah..no dragons in this book. Not a single one. He is just called that :)Hard to review an old fav. I have already reviewed it on this blog 2 years ago too πŸ˜‰

  6. Blodeuedd says:

    The only time I do get annoyed is when the date for the last book is being pushed back..but I can wait..I hope ;)And nope, the more the merrier

  7. Blodeuedd says:

    Don't be! They are just so boring and trust me you would not like his women. Here they are ok, but mostly they moon over a guy, fight over a guy, or sit in a guy's lap

  8. Jenny Girl says:

    I've thought of tackling this series, but I would really like to read the Sword of Truth series first by Goodkind. Glad this one was enjoyable for you again and again πŸ™‚

  9. Karen says:

    My husband had started this series but still needs to catch up. I have a few of them on my kindle so maybe I'll give it a try one of these days too.

  10. Aurian says:

    Such a great series! Like you, I have read this countless times. But somehow I can't make myself read the books not written by Robert Jordan. Still I want to know how it all ends.

  11. Aurian says:

    The Sword of Truth series are also worthy of re-reading. And of course, are made in a tv series. The legend of the Seeker. Which of course doesn't come close to the books. But is still fun to watch.

  12. Jenny Girl says:

    Oh no! well that's not good, but with all of the fantasies you read, I can see how you could forget. It's hard keeping all those elements separate πŸ™‚

  13. Blodeuedd says:

    I felt I had to πŸ™‚ I think I started reading this series 1996-1998 something and since the last book is coming out I want to read them all

  14. Blodeuedd says:

    Sanderson did better than i thought. Sure it was a bit strange in the beginning. Like there were new actors playing the same part but it worked better the more I read

  15. Blodeuedd says:

    >Oh that show was beyond lame. At least Richard took off his shirt a lot and showed his manly muscles. The books, well boring at first, but then they got better and of course that is when the library stopped buying them

  16. Staci says:

    I stopped at book 7 or 8 can't remember which one. I think in order to do the series justice I would have to re-read too!! I loved the first five books..seriously crush going on with them!
