The Sacrifice was the best part of the story, divinity was shown in that moment. An interesting way of discussing gods and men and how to approach life with wonder. Freedom to move about and choose ones own direction seems a moral of the story, more important than a life of riches.
Sentient objects with child like sensibilities in forms that judge evil seem like a prophetic thought to the future of AI. Very scary image of the future.
Narrator grew on me. I especially liked the voice of the sword. I got a clear sense of who was soeaking
(I wished the recording artist had reduced the sound of the narrator's swallowing between chapters.)
Brandon Sanderson does it again! His creative approach to magic comes at you in this novel from a completely different angle that is both surprising and exciting! What makes a god? Great story!!
Overall liked this. New idea for a story, hooked me in. But voices for some lead characters were annoying. The voice acting for one of the lead characters was like someone doing a caricature of a California dopey surfer dude. I guess it got the point across of what the character's personality was supposed to be like, but it felt super out-of-place.
There were a few plot points that seemed a little contrived to me, but if you are an audiobook addict like I am, you will definitely enjoy it overall.
James Yaegashi ruined this book for me. It was like being read to by Ted Theodore Logan of Bill and Ted. Maybe they will choose Michael Kramer to read the next one. This narrator is "bogus"!
Brandon Sanderson is by far my favorite author. Warbreaker just as with all of the rest of his books, paints a picture and creates a unique and well thought out universe. I was skeptical about warbreaker because come on how many outstanding books can one man write? Well although warbreaker doesn't quite compete with the mistborn series and the stormlight archives, It was a phenomenal book one I would recommend to anyone. Very engaging story you won't be disappointed.
I picked this book up on a reccomend action and having read the Mistborn trilogy figured I would like it. There were a few times during the book that I almost put it down for various reasons. In the end I am pleased that I finished it . The story took a while for me to get into but once I was there i didn't feel the same desire to continue with the book until I was about 80% done.
I won't say this is a must read but if you are looking for a decent fantasy book to occupy your time it is worth a try.
I am an avid fan of Brandon Sandersons work much like the rest of you I assume.
First off I will start with the negatives, Warbreaker was only 34 hours long, and there is no sequel. The book laid out the world nicely and the characters were so well individualized that I find that I want more time with them. But the story wraps up nicely at the end of the book, leaving you happy for have listened.
The narration isn't a problem, the book was narrated fine and there are only a hand full of times that the narrator uses the wrong voice for a character.
If you are looking for another great story by Brandon Sanderson look no farther than Warbreaker. You won't be disappointed
You've read all the Jordan, Martin, and way of kings (same author) series - and few others. I wasn't disappointed but wasn't super impressed either. It was just "pretty good".
