Book Review - The Great Hunt - Robert Jordan

The Great Hunt
By Robert Jordan

Ladies and Gents, there are somethings in life that take a little more time than normally should and this was one of them for me. I started this book while on vacation when I was eight months pregnant with my first child. For all of you who know me, you know that my first son is almost nine. Yes this book took me almost nine years to read. This shouldn't say anything about the quality of  the writing thought, it says a lot about how fast I read and how much time I have on my hands.

My husband has been a long time fan of Robert Jordan and he was the one that turned me on to these books. I started off with New Spring and quickly moved on to the Eye of the World. Loved them both. With the birth of my first son, I put The Great Hunt down and never picked it back up until recently. 

I love the world that the characters live in and am enthralled by the Aes Sedai and their use of the One Power. Its total magic and wonders that only a mind like Robert Jordan can think up. This was truly an epic fantasy for anyone to get lost in.

The characters are all torn apart and sent on their own adventures through out the book. The women to Tar Valon and the men on an epic journey to bring back the Horn of Valere. Somehow, through strange magic and even stranger circumstances, the group finds themselves in Falme, a city that has been over run by invaders. There are battles, Dark Friends and the return of Heroes from the past. The main Character Rand even comes to terms with his title, which we have been wondering about since the last book.

I loved this book and if you like epic fantasies then you will love t too. This one gets 5 out of 5 stars for all over content.

Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
