This book was easily one of the best I have ever read. It has deeply developed characters who's personal struggles and beliefs lead you on a roller coaster journey with tons of action and suspense!
This book does a good job establishing a believable world with some very original concepts.
I really enjoy concepts and world building and Sanderson is excellent at this. It is a fast paced book that moves quickly. Great action, and an adventure story with the right amount of drama, I was pleased with the unexpected twists and turns the story took.
Let's get the negative over with. Not in love with the main character but I can accept a lot of it because she's so young - just aggravating because so much of the stories from her point of view, meaning a solid chunk of the narrative I don't connect to. Any attempt at romance in story was laughable.
Beyond that, interesting new world and ideas. Fun fight scenes. I'm hooked enough to finish the series. I like Brandon Sanderson's writing so I had no problems with that. I would and have recommended it to friends so I'd say give it a listen or read.
I was looking for something similar to The Name of the Wind. This was better!! Loveable characters, rich and believable universe, packed with mystery, action, and satisfying character arcs.
The narrator's performance was also terrific. I'm definitely getting the next one!
This was a great story with some unique devices. It is a great story of discovery, love, and betrayal. There are also political and social aspects worthy of thought. The main characters were realistic, conflicted individuals.who were not always what they seemed or even believed about themselves. I highly recommend this book.
