Summary

Thus begins an epic journey set in an environment of miracles and horror, where what was, what's going to be, and what is, might yet fall underneath the Shadow.

The Eye of the World kicks off Robert Jordan's epic fantasy series which is a measure which should not be dismissed. This first book is exceptional and certainly will likely have you hearing another novel in the trip before you know it. This is really a long set (13 publications) and each publication so significantly is between 23-41 hours of listening in unabridged format.

A few things you ought to know before you start:

1) Robert Jordan did not live long enough to complete the story, however he did pass along his eyesight for the ending to Brandon Sanderson who is writing the last novels. Brandon Sanderson is an incredible Fantasy author so the conclusion of the series is in good hands.

2) Robert Jordan can tend to be wordy at times and some of the books along the way feel a little bloated, but each one does improve the story.

3) The narrative is done by 2 superb narrators: When the key character is female then Kate will read the entire chapter including the male voices. Michael will manage the chapter's where the primary character is male and he'll do the female voices. This means that you have to get used to 2 voices for every single character. This put me off at first but I rapidly became accustomed to it and now I love the format.

4) After a couple of books the narrators shift how they pronounce particular character names and this may throw you off before you understand that it's just a pronunciation change and not a different character. Merely be prepared for it.

I'm glad I began this lengthy journey and I feel that audio is among the best means to encounter Jordan's perform. I'd read The Eye of the World years ago but it didn't inspire me to keep going forward in the chain, where the audio-book left me desiring more!
