In the beginning of High School one of my best friends handed me a book he thought I would like, The Eye of the World, the first book in the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. I remember reading the book during the late months of school while floating in a pool, lost in the world of Aes Sedai and Rand al’Thor.

Since that day I have been kicking myself for starting a series that is incomplete. In fact this is the only series aside from The Song of Ice and Fire that I am reading that remains unfinished. Since then I have vowed never again to start in incomplete series no matter how good I am told it is.

However I just read the first chapter that has been made available online and I now want to reread the entire series in preparation for the last three.
