The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
The Eye of the World

Darkewatters, January 30, 2013

Even if there weren't already millions of books in the world, new ones seem to get get published almost before I have time to read the titles, and my "to read" list has become a novel on it's own. For this reason, I usually tend to steer clear of series. That was, of course, until I opened this gem. I have not read such intricate fantasy since the LOTR Trilogy, and because there are 12 other books to explore after this one, I will not be surprised if my dear hobbits and wizards are replaced with Aes Sedai and Trollocs. This is one of those books that you dread finishing because you don't want to admit to yourself that it is just a story. You find it seeping in to you dreams at night and lying in the back of your mind during all waking hours. Thrilling, beautiful, and unshakably addicting. Treat yourself.
