Sensational Quote Sunday
Some books change your life. They change the way you see the world. They do this not only with the story as a whole, but sometimes with an idea, a beautiful phrase, or even a word, that resonates with you the way nothing has before.
Sensational Quote Sunday is my way of paying homage to those books that remind me every day why I love reading.
I owe a reader’s debt to The Wheel of Time and Robert Jordan. By which I mean that I don’t think I’d love fantasy nearly as well as I currently do without the influence of Jordan’s world.
I’d like to introduce this series with one paragraph, as the books themselves do:
This opening gives me shivers, because it is the gateway to a rich, layered, insanely intricate story that has taken fourteen books, two authors, and twenty years to tell. Even though the story drags a little around the middle, the Wheel of Time will always be a series I admire and thoroughly enjoy. And Brandon Sanderson brings it home so, so well that I’m sure Robert Jordan would have been proud.
Have you read any of the Wheel of Time? Or Brandon Sanderson’s own work? (Please do, if you haven’t. You will not regret it!)
