Eye of the World, Chapters 1-9

I'll be posting blog thoughts as I re-read WOT in anticipation of the AMOL release. Some will be in line with Leigh Butler's re-read at tor.com, other blog posts will be at random.

 

One thing that jumped out at me from Chapter 4-how did Thom know Padan Fain from before they both appeared in Emond's Field? Perhaps it was in Thom's various travels, but I found that quite interesting on this re-read.

 

The LOTR flavor is unavoidable in these first chapters, but you can already sense Jordan making his own path. Chapter 9 is a tour-de-force, between Rand's vision at the beginning of the chapter, completed by Moiraine's telling of the fall of Manetheren. Great stuff.

I had a question about Thom, too...namely, how is it that a former Court Bard, and stellar gleeman, is in Emond's Field in the first place? Kinda out of the back end of nowhere for someone of his caliber. I wonder if he has some kind of hidden motive.

 

[note: This is a re-read for me, but I've only made it through the first nine, I think. Lost count, lol]

Yeah, good point. I always wondered what would have drawn him to the Two Rivers at that time. I still think that there is info relating to his appearance that may be revealed in AMOL.
