Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, book 1, The Eye of the World, brings you into a world of fantastical imagination. Exceptionally written, Robert Jordan takes you for a ride through his imagination. Written as if actually experienced,he takes you on a journy of high adventure.

As you read, you can't help becoming fond of all the characters. Laughing at Mattrim Cauthon's mischievious sence of hummor, agreeing with Perrin t'Abara's methodical thought,to always think things through, being captivated by Egwene al'Vere's love of life and excitment, and understanding Rand al'Thor's seanse of duty towards his friends, father and his home Emond's Field.
This is the book to read before all the rest. Only then can you truely understand and enjoy the whole story of "The Wheel of Time". The Wheel of Time is certainly a fantasy series that should have a place on everyones bookshelves.
