I loved this book, and I CANNOT wait to start reading the next one. It did take some time to get used to the terminology in the book, and all of the history isn't fully explained by the end of the story. I noticed many similarities to Tolkien's work, BUT this did not put me off. Mainly because Jordan's writing is quite good if not excellent, and he was able to actually build a story of his own. The characters were all a pleasure, especially the wolves, the green man and the Ogier. I also love that there were strong women woven throughout the plot of the story. I'm a sucker for adventure, legends and magic tales. I found this one to be excellent.
I would definitely recommend this book to other fantasy lovers. I can't imagine them not being smitten by the characters, and wanting more by the time they reach the end. ( )

what can i say? it's the best books in the world IF you're in the mood to read them. First time I read this book I gave up half way through. 3 years later picked them back up and read the first 4 straight through!
This is part of the divine 3 of this series. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0812538366, Paperback)

This box set of paperbacks includes the first three books in Robert Jordan's bestselling epic fantasy series, the Wheel of Time. No saga since Tolkien's Lord of the Rings has evoked such fervor among readers. In the first Wheel of Time book, The Eye of the World, Jordan introduces a world broken by phenomenal power and threatened by engulfing shadow. In The Great Hunt, our hero, Rand al'Thor, begins his epic journeys with a quest for the lost Horn of Valere, which promises to raise long-dead Heroes of Legend. And in The Dragon Reborn, Rand's destiny begins to take shape as his followers flock to him, and the world descends further into darkness. This box set is a great way to begin exploring the world of the Wheel of Time. But don't stop here, the second set awaits!
