    Another wonderful volume. It's a shame they haven't continued into the next book yet but I'm really hoping they will do so soon. Vol 6 here I come. I'm excited to read it but I'll be so sad when it ends. Another wonderful volume. It's a shame they haven't continued into the next book yet but I'm really hoping they will do so soon.

    Rating: 5 stars As expected, I read the last half of The Eye of the World novel much faster than the first, and finished it before I could complete the graphic novels. I am now reading The Great Hunt (in novel format, obviously) and am missing reading the graphic novels along with it, like I was able to do for book 1. They should absolutely continue on with the adaptions, and hopefully they will with increased popularity for the series that will come with the show airing.

They should absolutely continue on with the adaptions, and hopefully they will with increased popularity for the series that will come with the show airing. I'm not normally hugely in favour of TV or movie adaptations for books (I know I'm in the minority here), perhaps because Percy Jackson scarred me for life, but if we get to see Aviendha in graphic novel format I will be eternally grateful. So we had Elayne in this volume. She looked ok, and I promise I found a good picture of her despite my feelings regarding her character to add to this review: Ok, well no I can't promise you that, but I can promise you that I chose the picture that suits her personality the best: yelling at people because they are trying to take Rand away from her. Sounds just like Elayne, doesn't it? (I actually do like Elayne, but only in certain books, like The Great Hunt, and obviously not in this one.) She also had some suggestively placed swirly design things on her, ah, upper torso that were an interesting addition to her outfit. (I'd also like to add here as a mini side comment that while Galad looked fine, he was by no means "to handsome for masculinity" or whatever. No, I'm not going to put a picture here because, I don't know, it makes me uncomfortable rating people's levels of hotness, even in drawings.) On a happier note, Loial! I love Loial because I'm, well, a human mortal, and he makes every scene better. He looked really cool in this volume, and I think the artists nailed how I imagine an ogier would look: He's like an ent combined with a dwarf, or Treebeard combined with Gimli (who are both coincidentally voiced/played by John Rhys-Davis in the movies who also plays Sallah in Raiders of the Lo-! ok, that's too far, tangent over. Lord of the Rings was one thing but Indiana Jones is barely even the same genre). Also, I just wanted to add that I particularly liked this panel: I just think that the art here is especially good, and Moiraine, Nynaeve, Egwene and Loial's characters are portrayed individually really well, as well as their relationship with one another. The way Nynaeve tries to place herself above Moiraine, but also looks to her for confirmation... And how Egwene is tied between trying to impress Moiraine or Nynaeve... And how Loial holds Moiraine, as an Aes Sedai, in great esteem, but still refuses to lead then into the Ways... I could go on and on. Other than that, there were a few odd looking pictures, one of stifling a laugh and the other of biting a lip, but overall I had no major issues. There was also a strange instance of Rand supposedly referring to himself in the third person saying "He's back Rand!" which I think was a speech bubble intended to come from Mat instead. Looking forward to the last volume of The Eye of the World, and then to New Spring where we get to see Siuan! (Also, can we just acknowledge that this is by far the best cover of the graphic novels so far.)

    The penultimate graphic novel of the Eye of the World is slower in pace, almost gathering the energy that will be released in the finale. Rand stumbles into royal trouble and Moiraine goes against the white cloaks in story arcs that further explain the lore but don't progress much to resolve the urgent issue of the antagonist's awakening.

    Slight improvements in this volume, though only slight. The cost/sunk fallacy is working heavily on my mind now. One volume to go. I really loved this book, but this is just disappointing all around.

The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume Five by Robert Jordan and adapted by Chuck Dixon. ISBN 978-0-7653-7425-7 Cover with slip jacket. [First Edition: July 20114]; 176 pages. A TOR Book, Published by Tom Doherty Associates, LLC. A graphic novel is, in form, a book bound with material similar to full novels. Also, some graphic novels can also be viewed on e-readers. They can be hardcover or card stock paper and may include topics of non-fiction as well as fiction, or even anthologies. The graphic novel is distinguished from comics or comic books even though the bulk of material consists of drawings. Comic books are published on inexpensive bulk paper whereas graphic novels paper quality is much higher, some are truly beautiful with glossy pages and beautiful illustrations. Moreover, comics contain advertising whereas graphic novels do not. Also, graphic novels invariably contain a story line that has a beginning, middle, and end, a complete story arc. Comic books, on the other hand, tend to be episodic in nature. Comic books are much, much shorter than graphic novels (some graphic novels I've seen approach 150 pages and one I have is over 200 pages). Some graphic novels merely call themselves graphic novels but are nothing more than bound comics with an inflated price. It is so disappointing when a title is described and billed as a graphic novel and you spend your money expecting to get a graphic novel, but end up with a glorified comic book. One example of this is All You Need is Kill (Edge of Tomorrow) by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. I reviewed the novel on my blog (SHARON'S LOVE OF BOOKS) in May of this year (2014). As a Bonus part of that review, I also reviewed the graphic novel. On the other hand, Vampire Academy, A Graphic Novel is a perfect example of what a great graphic novel can be. So now that we know what makes a good graphic novel let's look at The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume Five by Robert Jordan: First, this is a sturdy hardbound book with a slip cover (or dust cover, if you will). The inside pages consist of paper that is as good a quality as desktop display books (good quality). The pages are glossy and since they are securely bound to the hardcover, they do not pull out or fall apart as I've seen in other published graphic novels. Second, the fictional material, subject matter that has been adapted from a full novel, contains a full story arc with a beginning, middle, and end. Third, the book exceeds the page quantities of comic books, coming in at 176 pages, so definitely over the average number of pages for other graphic novels. Fourth, this graphic novel, as I indicated, is from a full fictional novel. The Eye of The World graphic novel is not a stand-alone book (Although many stand-alone books make great graphic novels). It is part of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time Series that is an established series. This series is VERY popular with readers of the EPIC FANTASY genre. Fifth, the book contains NO ADVERTISING. This is important, because virtually all comics do contain advertising. Sixth, because all of the above-listed elements clearly show this book to be a graphic novel, and not an episodic comic book, we can look at the intangible qualities of this particular book to see just how good it is. WHAT I REALLY LOVED ABOUT THE BOOK: Eye appeal. Before you even pick up the book the glossy cover with embossed lettering of the title and author's name grab you. The colors are beautiful and the cover art is very appealing, and well done. The cover was created by Andie Tong. Inside, the semi-glossy pages are numbered to easily keep track of where you are in the book. The book was lettered by Bill Tortolini. The text is clear, neat and legible. One minor complaint, here, is that the yellow text boxes used to describe action in the scene I found to be a little too small to read easily. I wear glasses, and still found it difficult to read the text in the "action" boxes. The dialog bubbles, however, were easy to read. The art in the book is by Andie Tong and colors by Nicolas Chapuis. Well, I have no complaints about the art. The art, the drawings and color work are simply, flat out beautiful! Since I have read Robert Jordan's complete Wheel of Time Series, I had to get the graphic novel. This book is so enjoyable to read because of its obvious beauty, and great story, and I can't resist the feel of the cover and its pages. This graphic novel is high quality and probably one of the best graphic novels I've ever read. The publishers did a great job in creating the book. Because of all of the above reasons, I rate this book 5 stars out of 5. Thank you for taking time to read my review. Sharon Powers.

    It's really great to see the Wheel of Time being brought to life in any kind of visual form... And a graphic novel is a great way to do this. I've been following the Eye of the World graphic novels and now this penultimate one has joined the list. One thing I have to give the creators credit for; they are trying to be as faithful to the material as they can. Because of that though, it is taking a total of 6 graphics novels just to cover the first book of the Wheel of Time.

I've been following the Eye of the World graphic novels and now this penultimate one has joined the list. One thing I have to give the creators credit for; they are trying to be as faithful to the material as they can. Because of that though, it is taking a total of 6 graphics novels just to cover the first book of the Wheel of Time. This is a long, slow process, because they are faithfully covering all the events of the book and not glossing over the details. I think that because of this, to someone who has already read the novels the comics just feel way too slow-paced and boring. Perhaps it's due to our assumptions that comics are fast-paced and action-packed, but the Eye of the World is faithfully recreating the story scene by scene, with large portions of narrative and dialogue taken right out of the book. So keep that in mind when you're reading: relax and take your time. Try and discover this series again for the first time. The other thing about the graphic novel that I am not so fond of is the artwork. It's all very good of course, and again, they are trying to stay faithful to the series, but everyone has a different artistic style. I just don't think the quality is up to par with some of the good works out there. I like more detail in my stories, and for sure the rich environments such as Caemlyn in the Wheel of Time are not done proper justice here. I also don't see a lot of variety in the characters' faces, which is a weakness to this style of drawing as well. I hope that if they continue the series they will address this issue.

    Another volume in the graphic treatment of Robert Jordan's "The Eye of the World." The parties come together again in Camelyn and plot the next leg of their journey. These are still such a treat to read, after following the characters and story for 20+ years, I'm thrilled with the care and attention to detail that are shown. And a special aside to the artist(s) who can make a character lovely from one angle and plain from another, just as real people often do, and who don't fall into the trap of Another volume in the graphic treatment of Robert Jordan's "The Eye of the World."

The setting are stunning and the landscapes are lush (for now!). The words are taken straight from Jordan, too, and care has obviously been taken to keep what is poetic and what is stirring without compromising either the graphic form or the source material.

    As the first book draws towards its completion I am left wondering if the graphic novels will make it all the way. Not that the quality of writing and the detail has not been lost in any way. Its just that the journey is so long and arduous that I wonder if it will finish both for the characters and for the readers. But for the people who have rad the books and just want to refresh the great memories of Rand Al Thor or Mat Cauthon, this is definitely right up there. Onto the last one then.

    Somewhere in the noticeable decline in art and dialogue quality from the previous volume to this one, this The Eye of the World graphic novel has gone from barely adequate adaptation of the source material to being bad enough to be actually unreadable.

    As always, the art is hit-or-miss, but I'll always be entranced with seeing this story brought to life visually. Caemlyn makes its brief appearance. Can't wait to see more of the Ways in the next volume. As always, the art is hit-or-miss, but I'll always be entranced with seeing this story brought to life visually.

    The adaptation felt a little awkward in places in this volume. I also didn't like the artwork. I think the lines were drawn too heavily and made everything feel too cartoonish.
