I’ve delayed writing this post because I’m not really sure how to put into words everything that this series is.
Jordan started writing the first volume, The Eye of the World, in 1984. The book was published in 1990 and thus the series began.
In 2007 Robert Jordan passed away, 11 books into the 14 book series.
The final novel was completed by Brandon Sanderson, of Mistborn fame, in late 2011.
My personal acquaintance with the series began in ’98 or ’99. I was in middle school and recently discovered an insane obsession with dragons. The third novel in the series is called The Dragon Reborn and through it I was introduced to the series.
I lost touch with the books once I became current and had to wait for new novels to be released. Now with the final installment scheduled to come out this year its finally time for The Great Re-read. I’ve been trying to hold off since the book won’t be out until late fall and its only 13 books.
I finally gave in and told myself I could only read it on the nook app on my phone. Hopefully that will be slow going enough that I won’t finish the series 8 months before the last book comes out.
Have any of you read this series? How do you feel about it? Jordan is far and away the best author I’ve ever read. Is anyone else excited about The Great Re-read? Man I really want to go home and binge read it. Wish me luck on holding out. 😀
