This is my second read. In my original review I gave it 4.5 stars, but I think this time it is 5 stars. Robert Jordan really sets up the series in this first book. Now that I know how it unfolds I understood all the hints and the character introductions. Amazing!

Original review below still holds true:
I really enjoyed the characters and the development of plot. There were mysteries hinted at that I am looking forward to seeing revealed. I listened to the audiobook and I liked the narrators. It wasn't quite 5 stars but it was very close.

Another #reread... I still love this series. It is now just a few weeks before the release of AmazonPrime's Wheel of Time TV series. I am SO hyped. I finished the first book on the day that they are releasing the FINAL trailer for the series. I have my WoT Trailer Bingo Card filled out. What a wonderful time to be a WoT fan.

My favorite character in the entire series is Rand. He goes through SO much, but the idea of this burden that was thrust upon him...him then doing what he does (no spoilers), but man...the adventure begins, again. Another turning of the Wheel.

If you haven't read this book...please do. It is amazing. BTW, I am VERY biased.

Another #reread... I love this series. It is like visiting family. It never gets old.

From previous reread:

I am so excited about this re-read. I have wanted to re-read my favorite series for many years, but there just hasn't been a good time. This isn't a good time, either...but there will NEVER be a good time. I just have to make time. I have read this book at least ten times, but I found myself truly excited when I read the prologue...again. I love this world and the people that inhabit it. It is like visiting family...okay, well, better than family...I actually love these people.
