I read The Eye of The World and thought it was decent. After I was finished, I thought about continuing the series, but I obviously didn't think too much about it, because I haven't done it yet, and it's been years. I don't know, I just don't have the time to read a tale that takes 10,000 pages to complete unless it is beyond uber-spectacular. If a writer can't close the deal in a thousand pages or so, then I'll pass. The only soap opera I've ever gotten into is the one with Luke & Laura about thirty years ago, and that will never be topped, so why bother with another .
