I wrote previously about my reasons for finally deciding to dive into Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time. Since the editor here is so nice, he has decided it was fine by him to continue chronicling my adventures as a novice through “Randland.” For those who missed it, I recorded these first three “video diaries” immediately after finishing each to help me keep track of what happened in which book and I recently decided to turn them into individual reviews. Below you will find the video review for The Eye of The World, The Great Hunt, and The Dragon Reborn. I’m currently about halfway through The Shadow Rising, so expect that video review sometime next week.
***Just a warning: all of these reviews contain spoilers for each book. Please refrain from watching if you have not read each and plan to do so in the future.***
The Wheel of Time I: The Eye of The World
Synopsis: When The Two Rivers is attacked by Trollocs―a savage tribe of half-men, half-beasts― five villagers flee that night into a world they barely imagined, with new dangers waiting in the shadows and in the light.
The Wheel of Time II: The Great Hunt
Synopsis: For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of…Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages. And it is stolen.
The Wheel of Time III: The Dragon Reborn
Synopsis: Winter has stopped the war―almost―yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he? In the Heart of the Stone lies the next great test of the Dragon reborn.
