The Eye of the World kicks off the Wheel of Time series and does so with a bang. Robert Jordan excelled at describing action scenes whether they were sword fights or battles using the "one power." He also maintains interesting plot divergences. You don't feel like skipping around to catch up with a character elsewhere. This is epic, tomish fantasy at its best. If you like the book then strap in; the series contains 14 volumes. Don't be thrown off, though! Each volume of the series remains engaging. A true page-turner.
