What the community says about The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time)
- "A stellar fantasy world! If you loved Middle Earth as created by Tolkien, get ready to be immersed in a complex and sprawling world that will seem familiar and fresh at the same time. Robert Jordan chose Brandon Sanderson to finish the books after his death, and Sanderson has really lived up to Jordan's legacy. But this first book is all Jordan. Plan to set aside a few hours!"

in What are the best fantasy novels"The Eye of the World is truly a classic fantasy book. You follow the life of Rand Al Thor, an ordinary village boy who suddenly becomes a target of evil forces because he an incredible power within him. He isn't able to use that power for some time though, so the only thing they can do is run and run they do for a good portion of this book. It's an incredibly entertaining ride though and you can feel the tension when they are fleeing by horseback and trailed by mythical evil entities. Another incredibly compelling part of this book is seeing the transformation of the main characters from childish boys to strong men who are able to meet the vast expectations of them. Pick up this book and make sure you leave plenty of free time for when you want to read the numerous sequels!"
