If you like long fantasies, this is as Tolkeinesk as I've found. I do wish the author would have given a bit more personality to the characters. I'm definitely going to continue the series. Can't wait for book two!

I have been an avid reader all my life. Because it's become necessary to wear readers to see print, I mostly listen to audiobooks now. Sometimes a bad narrator will ruin a good book. This is definitely not the case with this one. Michael Kramer is incredible! He does the voices of so many different characters, and each one is discernible from the other. He actually does the female voices better than the the female narrator, in my opinion. As for the book itself, it is very good, but sometimes hard to follow. I am listening to it for the second time, the first time being about 3 years ago, and I still get lost sometimes. Nonetheless, I do recommend it, and will be getting the rest of the series.
I definitely loved listening to The Eye of the World. it kept me excited from the first mysterious rider to the last use of the last thoughts of woman on the bed. some of the words and names were hard to follow, but I have a hard copy of the book so I can read the glossary. Other than that, it was an amazing read. definitely recommend reading the book.
