Standard

Welcome back to Drew’s Wheel of Time Reread! Yes, I know this is two days later than I said it would be. I’ve been under the weather for the last few days, and that has put a serious crimp in my WoT schedule.

Today, we will finish up Book One, The Eye of the World. As usual, there will be spoilers present for the whole series. You can find the introduction post here, and Part One of The Eye of the World here. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time! Continue reading

Drew’s Wheel of Time Reread – The Eye of the World Part 2

Standard

Welcome to Drew’s Wheel of Time Reread! Today we will be covering the second part of The Eye of the World. Good news! Well, kind of…as I closed in on 1000 words for this post and I was only at Whitebridge, I realized that I’m going to need to do more than just two posts for EotW—and by extension, probably for every other book, too. There is just too much to say, otherwise. The result is that we get more Reread posts! That’s good news, right? Anyway, spoilers will be present for the entire series in this reread. The introduction post is here. You can find Part One of The Eye of the World here. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time! Continue reading

Drew’s Wheel of Time Reread – Introduction

Standard

I’m doing a Wheel of Time reread! For those who know me personally, you know how I feel about this series; for those who don’t, WoT is a formative series in my life and is the main reason I became a writer. The depth, complexity, and creativity of the world and story just sucked me in, all those years ago, and ignited the spark of storytelling. Robert Jordan’s crowning work truly opened my eyes to everything the fantasy genre can offer.

This reread will be structured into (hopefully) two or three posts per book. It will likely be one post every week, as I want to take my time reading through it. I’ll be discussing my impressions, both from the first time I read the series, and now, on this umpteenth reread. I’m looking forward to getting a lot of my thoughts down and seeing where WoT takes me this time. Continue reading
