The Wheel of Time ® is a PBS Great American Read Selection! Now in development for TV!
Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.
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.
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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The first book in Robert Jordan’s 14-volume Wheel of Time saga is an enthralling epic fantasy that’s as magical as the books of Tolkien and George R.R. Martin. Rand, Perrin, and Mat—young men from a remote farming village—are preoccupied with local girls and scolding elders. But when their village comes under attack from an undead commander’s vicious army, the friends are thrust into a life-changing quest to confront a formidable evil force. Filled with sword-and-sorcery thrills and imaginative world-building, The Eye of the World turns a coming-of-age story into the start of a high-fantasy masterpiece.

Great fantasy read!
It's hard for me to find time to read for pleasure, but I kept reading this book every chance I got. At first, the story seems very reminiscent of Tolkien's fellowship, with an unlikely hero being dragged into a journey when he'd rather stay at home, with a wizard-like companion to guide him on his way and the fate of the world at stake. But the story distinguishes with a unique world and intrigue, holding back information and keeping the reader turning pages just to learn how the protagonist will fit into it all. Getting to know the characters is a lot of fun, too. I started book 2 the moment I finished this one, and another dozen or so in the series will keep me busy for a while to come. I also highly recommend the audiobook. The narrator does a great job bringing the story to life.
I have been reading this series since 1990 and have re-read it many times. It is a compelling series with great characters and a fantastic storyline. Once you get into the book you will not regret it.
Written for people under 15
This first book is somewhat readable. I am now on book 6 and wished I had never started reading the series. It IS an engaging story, and I will finish the series because I would like to know how the story ends. With that said, there are large chunks of the books I simply skip or skim through because Jordan's writing is so full of useless information and long winded overly repeated notions. The adult characters act like 10 year olds when it comes to relationships and sexuality. It gets very tedious. If you are a veteran fantasy reader steer clear, or possibly buy the books for your young teens to read.
