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.
excellent book. slow going to being for almost half the book, some of that was the narrator trying to find his groove, but once he did, and the story picked up, it was excellent! I'm looking forward to the next book.
I loved this story to bits. The narrators voice is pleasant to listen to, and the story is intriguing and fun. Not to mention the characters being amazingly well rounded and well written with an amazing heroine!
My friend time me to try Brandon Sanderson's books, and I am very glad! I had a hard time putting it down, surprised in plot helped me, and a great way to explain things without taking away from the story, but adding to it. I really liked the narrator too!
Never got too slow. Everyone says it, but suuuuuuch interesting magic! There's plenty left to the imagination, and readers who like to predict what's coming next will greatly enjoy the lack of 'spelling it out.' Just read it.
