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. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. The Eye of the World — When The Two Rivers is attacked by Trollocs—a savage tribe of half-men, half-beasts— five villagers flee that night into a world they barely imagined, with new dangers waiting in the shadows and in the light. The Great Hunt — Long thought only legend, the Horn of Valere is found, a mystical item able to raise the dead heroes of the ages. But then, everything changes when it gets stolen.
Between this and the thick female drama, there are several sections of the series where you're tempted to skim more than to read. A Gathering Storm was the most difficult to read for me, because Sanderson nearly ruined two of my favorite characters up to that point in the story.
Why is it still the best epic fantasy ever? The story progresses, in classic epic style, from humble beginnings to the grand scale.
But the characters are SO fullly fleshed out--with flaws, strengths, quirks, and so on. They plot, they pursue their own goals, and they're often convinced of something the reader knows is false. You become intimate with them, like old friends. You feel the sense of wonder at the new world as characters discover things, you can feel the desperation in hopeless situations, you take part in the mirth and frustration and every mood that the characters feel.
I don't mean to say that every nation, culture, quirk, is broken downand explained in detail--but rather, they're fleshed out throughout the series. You become familiar with the distinctive dress, speech, naming conventions, habits, and temperaments of well over a doezn different cultures through the book, without him ever breaking down and having to explain it.
At the time that Brandon Sanderson took over the writing, there were about 3 million words of Wheel of Time in print. The series was nominated for a Hugo Award a few years ago after the last volume was finished. At the time, the entire series was provided in a single eBook to Worldcon members as part of the Hugo Awards voter pack.
I joined Worldcon that year mostly to get the eBook.
One of these days. The first three books in the series are action-filled fast-paced. The series slows down after the third book as the story shifts to creating more problems than it solves. Maybe skip Crossroads of Twilight book The beginning of the series is really good, as Chris S. Unfortunately the later books somehow bogged down — not much happened in the course of several hundred pages this happened significantly before Robert Jordan died and Brandon Sanderson took over.
