This epic novel that starts out the Wheel of Time is by far, one of the best reads out there for fantasy. The first 100 pages or so have a tendency to drag a bit as Jordan is setting the stage for a 12+ book series, so be patient and take in all the details. You will be surprised as to how often the are referenced...
There are so many weaves and plots and characters to learn, feel and grow to love that it's why I have read them over and over again...
If you enjoy this, I encourage you to read the series or listen to the Audible.

Epic, Epic fantasy! Genius does not even describe this series. I personally think it is one of the greatest books ever. The beginning does have set-up, but not to the point of boredom. Without sincere characters who the reader knows, the plot has little meaning, and Jordan does and excellent job. If you are a fan of great prose, and even greater plot this is the book to read. Vividly imagined fiction with all the hallmarks of literature encased within fantasy fiction. Read it, you won't be sorry!

Though the book is a breakthrough in storytelling (being one of only a few to duplicate the level of fandom like Tolkein), the Eye of the world starts out as a slow crawl.
This is understadably needed, plotlines, places and the like have to be set up, but after reaching a place called Shadar Lolgoth, the story takes off, a definate choice if you want months of your life taken up by reading the first book and itching to get to the second.

"Synopsis" by , This is the first book in the epic Wheel of Time series.
"Synopsis" by ,
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.
