The Eye of the World, perhaps one of the most epic fantasy novels ever written. Robert Jordan creates a world where his characters come to life, and you alone are immediately immersed into this new fantasy world.
As is every traditional fantasy novel, the characters are split into the ‘goodies’, ‘baddies’ and evildoers that wish to conquer the world. The novel begins with three village boys from Two Rivers who find out they are destined to defeat evil. Henceforth, they set out on a heroic quest. Does this sound familiar?
