I started to read this book (series) because I thought it had to do with dragons, well it doesn’t.... exactly. With that said I'm happy that I did. The book takes a while to develop into an interesting story but I didn't hold that against it. The first book always takes some time to introduce and develop characters but that is necessary in order for reader to connect in some way with the characters, whether they are antagonist or protagonist. I recommend listening to both “The Eye of the World” and “The Great Hunt” together. It's been awhile since I've listened to/read these books but I distinctly remember that “The Great Hunt” wrapped up “The Eye of the World” more fluently. I know this is going to sound convoluted but try thinking of “The Eye of the World” as a two part book but it would have been too big for one book so it was split it and rather than calling it “The Eye of the World: Part Two” it was called “The Great Hunt”. I applaud Michael Kramer as narrators for this series. He carries the voices between characters distinctively. Kate Reading took me a while to start liking (book six), either she’s improved or I’m just really used to her voice; I’d like to think she’s improved.
