Synopsis:

Copied from Goodreads.com

The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Review:

OK, there is a reason I copied the synopsis this time. After 800 pages, I still don’t know what the story was supposed to be about. I like adventure stories just as much as any fantasy fan but I was SO underwhelmed with this novel. There is really no more to say…

Favorite Quotes:

“Violence harms the one who does it as much as the one who receives it. You could cut down a tree with an axe. The axe does violence to the tree, and escapes unharmed. Is that how you see it? Wood is soft compared to steel, but the sharp steel is dulled as it chops, and the sap of the tree will rust and pit it. The mighty axe does violence to the helpless tree, and is harmed by it. So it is with men, though the harm is in the spirit.” 
― Robert Jordan, The Eye of the World

“She’s not for you, nor you for her; at least, not in the way you both want.” 
― Robert Jordan, The Eye of the World
