How to explain Wheel of Time to someone? Some of you may have your elevator pitch, but for the rest of us it is a struggle. Yes, it's kind of like Lord of the Rings but...no it's really not. Sure, it's a little like Game of Thrones, if you add more women, more magic, and tone down the sex and violence, maybe.
Recently, my parents said to me, "Oh, we thought it was about time-travel. Didn't you say they go back in time?"
"No, I said the world in the series is connected to our world."
"Oh...isn't that the same thing?"
Trying to describe this series to someone usually ends with a major facepalm and the exasperated exclamation, "Here, just read it!" All of this is portrayed hilariously and perfectly in the following video. This video resonates with me a spiritual level, you guys. I think every fan has gone through this, but it makes it all worth it when, in the end, you find another fan.
The Light illumine you all!
