Robert Jordan: The Wheel of Time; the introduction to the review

Dear all,

This is my way of making a(nother) comeback! Why? It is because I finally have the time. I recently submitted my MA thesis English literature (it has not been graded just yet so please pray for me), which means that I am finally free to move on with my life and leave uni behind for good (huzzah).

In honor of this epic piece of news, one requires an equal or more epic announcement: I started Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series March 2020 (I was in great denial about finishing my BA Archaeology) and I’ve finally reached book 7! If this is not an announcement of some magnitude, I don’t know what is… I’ve so far read (according to Goodreads) 5500 pages of this amazingly epic series, and let met tell you: it is an epic worthy of it’s name.

Since the series is 14 books of a shitload of pages in total, I chose to divide the review into two parts. Part 1 will encompass books 1-7, part 2 (shockingly) encompasses books 8-14. I’m almost (well… 300 pages almost) ready with part 7, so the first review will be presented to you all shortly(ish).

For now, I think this suffices as an introduction to the contents of the coming reviews:

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legends. Legend fades into myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the great forest called Braem Wood. The wind was not a beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But is was a beginning…

Robert Jordan, A Crown of Swords. The Wheel of Time book 7, page 49.

Until we meet again for the first part of this series’ review.

All best, Cindy
