Oh man. so I just finished the AUDIBLE VERSION of the wheel of time series. I've read the books a dozen times. And then read Elantris which was A+. Then read a few short (10hr) stories. And now I began the mistborn. Oh My Gosh. I am in love! Maybe its the familiar writing or narrator Michael Kramer, Or perhaps its just a damn good story but I say this was A+ and I am hooked! WELL DONE BRANDON SANDERSON! Ofcourse you didnt need me to say this, you bloody well knew this already.
I just finished both storm light novels. Mistborn managed to capture that feeling but unfortunately felt like it dragged in the beginning middle. Great "read" awesomely read
I loved this book. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. It was fast paced, no filler, and the last half of the book I read in about a day, wanting to get to the end.
The narration for this book is just awful. The narrator's inflections are irritating, but the worst part was his voice for the main character, Vin. She's a street smart, strong young woman who knows how to handle herself. This narrator makes her sound meek, vapid, and weak. He makes her sound like she is a doe eyed waif stumbling her way through the book. I stopped listening to the audio and read the rest of the book on my own because it annoyed me so much.
I absolutely love this book! Best of the Trilogy.(The others are great too.) Michael Kramer is my favorite narrator and Brandon Sanderson is the King of Magic Systems.
I'll be honest, I absolutely hated the beginning of this book. It dragged and berated with some obvious imagery. I didn't have any more Audible credits, though, so I left it on for another voice in the car more than anything else.
If you're in that same boat, keep going! This is now one of my absolute favorite books and the time needed for world-building is returned ten-fold. Highly recommended!
Say something about yourself!
If Star wars, Hunger Games and Game of thrones had a baby, and that baby did it's adventurously epic own thing, it would be Mistborn.
Unfortunately I'll be reading a physical edition of this series. The Narrator, Michael Kramer, could not keep my attention as he read. The differentiation in voices, for characters, was lacking.
I love Brandon Sanderson as an Author. Do not take this Review as a claim against him.
