it was amazing
Recommended for: fantasy skeptics
Read in January, 2000

This is the first in the longest but not necessarily greatest fantasy epics of all time.

Robert Jordan embarks on a journey with a handful of farmers that will span over 10,000 pages and raise his pitchfork handling characters to the heights of kings.

This book is a fun, exiting, and wonderfully entertaining adventure that leaves you hungry for more. I must warn any reader who picks up this book that Robert Jordan has been diagnosed with a fatal illness and has one book to go before he finishes this series (12 in all).

I won't review all eleven books, but I will say that having read all eleven, this is the most complex story ever written, with no more than 50 plot threads dangling at any given time, with loads of intrigue, deception, action, and adventure.

I think once I retire (if there ever comes a time) I'll spend a winter in a cottage somewhere re-reading this whole thing.
