I have just started the Wheel of Time books. And I am hooked. 10 years ago when I first discovered them I was daunted by the sheer amount of these books, thinking I would never have the time to read them all or have the patience. But to be honest the moment I opened up the Eye of the World I havent put the book down, in less than a week I am over half way through and have already ordered the second book The Great Hunt.
Some fantasy books take me ages to get into maybe some really just drag, but I like the pacing in this book, it goes just about right to me, I love books with alot of character development and world descriptions. Its kind of like if I were to write a fantasy book it would be like this.
I kind of wished I had picked up the books 10 years ago now, especially as I had more time to read them as I do now but I am still getting through them very fast now.
