I am still reading The Wheel of Time series from Robert Jordan, The Eye of the World (goodreads) is the first book in the series.
“I know you say not to trust anyone,” Egwene said, “but if you suspect the innkeeper, why stay here?”
“I suspect him no more than anyone else,” Lan replied. “But then, until we reach Tar Valon, I suspect everyone. There, I’ll suspect only half.”
That excerpt is taken from chapter 15. Robert Jordan does a great job of revealing his world piece by piece through the words of the characters. The main POV character is Rand, who is from a small town and knows little of the world. So it is Lan and other outsiders that Rand meets that tell him of the world and in turn, the reader.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
