Be the first to ask a question about The Eye of the World. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Responding to queries on the similarity of some of the concepts in his Wheel of Time books with Freemasonry concepts, Jordan admitted that he was a Freemason. However, "like his father and grandfather," he preferred not to advertise, possibly because of the negative propaganda against Freemasonry. In his own words, "no man in this country should feel in danger because of his beliefs.

The unabridged audiobook is read by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading. The Eye of the World Audiobook is an interesting piece of The Wheel of Time Audiobook because, just like Rand, Mat and Perrin, Jordan doesn’t quite seem to have a grasp on what’s going on, or how the mechanics of his world operate. Even if you do not read another book in the wheel of time series, the eye of the world is quite satisfying as a self-contained masterpiece as well. That being said, read the whole series! you will not regret it.

The Wheel of Time is a series of high fantasy novels written by American author James Oliver Rigney J. under his pen name of Robert Jordan. Originally planned as a six-book series, The Wheel of Time spanned fourteen volumes, in addition to a prequel novel and two companion books. Jordan began writing the first volume, The Eye of the World, in 1984, and it was published in January 1990.

Read unlimited books and audiobooks on the web, iPad, iPhone and Android. Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters. 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.

The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning. Born below the ever cloudcapped peaks that gave the mountains their name the wind blew east out across the Sand Hills once the shore of a great ocean before the Breaking of the World. Down it flailed into the Two Rivers into the tangled forest called the Westwood and beat at two men walking with a cart and horse down the rockstrewn track called the Quarry Road

What if the hero of prophecy fails? What kind of world results when the Dark Lord is in charge? The answer will be found in the Mistborn Trilogy, a saga of surprises and magical martial-arts action that begins in Mistborn. One of the best series I've ever read - life-changingly good. One of my favourite books of all time and a must read for any fantasy.

part 1 The Wheel of Time series. Neither of them has told the Council it hasn’t a full set of wits among them. It seems my estimate was too high by half, Nynaeve retorted. He ignored the cries of those who had been watching him, pressing inside past the Councilors before they were well out of the doorway. Is he supposed to be a gleeman or a king? Cenn Buie asked in annoyed tones. Egwene looked at Rand as if she were going to speak, then darted after the Wisdom instead.

These are my thoughts about the entire series:
I think many people who complain about this series miss the point entirely. You'll notice the majority of the complaints stem from those who find the books too long winded, too slow, taking too long to get to the point, and focused on too much minutia in detail.
To those complaints I say: That's the point.
This series isn't about getting to the climax as fast as possible. These aren't plane ride or beach day books. This is a series for fantasy fans who want the minutia. For those who revel in being able to visualize every single detail of the world. These are for people who want to escape their mundane worlds for some time and live in another, more fantastical world.
If that's what you're looking for in a fantasy series then that is what Wheel of Time offers in droves.
To those who say that this series is just generic fantasy, you're right. But, man, it's wrapped in a brilliant packaging. I would say this is the generic fantasy trope  (chosen one destined to defeat big bad) done the best it could possibly be done. It's a beautifully realized world in every way.
I think people are really hard on this series.  It does what it sets out to do and does it brilliantly.

(WARNING THE FOLLOWING IS LONG)

Got a book to pass the time while I wait for power to return to Puerto Rico.

This is the first book I ever read for pleasure. (No, i don't mean this is literally the first time I've read for pleasure.) I've read the entire 14 book series and 1 encyclopedia. I've read this book three times, going on fourth. The first in the series. It's like The Hobbit but much more adult and dark. I think the writing is better too. (I'm not really a Tolkien fan too much. Good story. Bad writing. #shotsfired)

Funny story: I never intended to read this book. I wanted money from my great grandma Deeder (Great Deeder we called her). For a toy or something, I forget. But she didn't want to give it to me. So me binge a sly kid I thought, "ok, an educational gift the: a book." And I'd return it later for the cash and buy whatever I wanted.

So I went into Barnes and Noble and picked a book up totally at random, checking only that the price was about the amount of cash I had wanted. She paid for the book. I went home and it sat on a shelf for months.

Later on, I got really sick and stayed home from school. I decided to read it because I had nothing else to do and was on the toilet a lot. When I picked it up, the cover was literally was covered in thick dust. Disgusting. I cleaned it up and started reading.

...and reading. And four hours later I stopped. I remember it was four hours because I was shocked that it was 5PM and dinner and I was a little hungry. I couldn't put it down. I loved it.

And the lessons it taught me and it's new ways of thinking molded who I became as a person. "Death is lighter than a feather, duty heavier than a mountain," became my motto for how to soldier and lead. And so many others. I loved the characters. I literally cried for them in moments of pain or death. Even minor characters are people you know. And I laughed out loud at jokes. Got excited in moments of lust or chase. Even felt genuine fear.

Robert Jordan (James Oliver Rigney, Jr.) was an amazing man too. A taste for the fine old things. Pipes. Hats. Chess. History. He was also a military school guy (like me) at Virginia Military Institute (VMI). And part of the reason I went to military college (NMMI) myself and why I excelled in JROTC in high school. Even into my Regular Army career as Combat Medic (68W) and how I approached medicine and bedside manner (thanks Yellow Ajah and the Band of the Red Hand). Not just his example, but the examples of his characters that inspired me to lead and to be uncompromising in my self discipline, especially honor.

Tragically Jordan died before he finished the books and the last three (or four) were written by his chosen successor Brandon Sanderson (who I had never heard of). And in fact Sanderson was surprised that Jordan wanted him to be his ghost writer. What a huge responsibility to finish the story that fans had been reading literally for more than a decade. I eagerly awaited each new book and when I first started reading there were only four or five, I think.
I convinced my brother to read it too and he also became addicted. We would talk about the different theories and ask questions. It was exciting!

Sanderson did an incredible job. I could not even tell that the writer's voice had changed. He used very detailed notes and talks with Jordan's wife, Harriet (for whom the first book is dedicated). Fans are waiting for the movies to be made. But that's been passed around for years to different studios and directors. It can't be done cheaply or wrong (like the Wizard's First Rule tv series for instance that sucked but the books were amazing by Terry Goodkind). Better no film than a bad one.

Anyway, I got it again to pass the time. It's fun to revisit it from a more adult mindset and with the full knowledge of the 14 novel series. Things I overlooked or seemed unimportant now jump off the page. That sly devil, I think. He knew all along! And there are still unsolved mysteries that are debatable and interesting fan theories and even beautiful fan art.

I could not more strongly recommend this book and the entire Wheel of Time series. I'm not being hysterical when I say it made me who I am. I feel like Jordan and his characters were some of my most important mentors. I perhaps never would have learned to love reading without this book.

Any other Jordan fans out there? Tell me about your story.

I started this series when I was 15 and am now 37. I read them as the books came out, waiting years in between releases and decided to re-read the series in full. There is so much you miss or forget after 22 years!!! I remember hating Nyaneve when I was younger, now though, I love her!

This review is for people debating whether or not to do a second read through. My answer is 100% yes!!! As complex a world as Robert Jordans Wheel of Time series is, knowing some of the main story opens up many details you missed the first time you read it.

After reading some great works by Brandon Sanderson, I was curious to find another epic fantasy series that included the things I enjoy most, and bypassed the content I rather don't like.

'The Wheel of Time' tempers the reader slowly into it's universe, helping one grow accustomed to the way things are understood, and then it continues to build and accelerate until the book's conclusion. By the time we reach certain locations, and meet new characters, we've already learned to expect (and enjoy) the unexpected.

This book doesn't easily compare to a book like 'The Fellowship of the Ring' but I saw parallels in the way we're introduced to a simple world that grows ever more complicated and serious as the adventure progresses.

Getting to learn about so many characters while other remain shrouded in mystery was a great part of this ride. Seeing the landscapes in my mind's eye was easy with this author. Furthermore, feeling the impress of urgency on these characters and their journey was appreciated.

I recommend this read for fans of Tolkien, Sanderson, and terrifying hordes. ;)

Very good books with detail. Before you get involved be sure you can read continuously all 13 books, because if you don't, you will forget who's who in the zoo. This was my problem. I got into these books but ended up hesitating with the reads with month long gaps before picking the book back up and I found myself forgetting the importance of each character. There are approximately 1600 different characters that pass through the pages of these books. Many of these characters are seen only once.
