The story is wonderful. Character development is superb. This is my 4th Sanderson book to listen to and I believe I'll be listening to all of his books current and future. The narration was also excellent.
Good narration, a slips here and there between character voices, but played well with the visuals and drama. Engaging story and characters. A bit slow to start, but a very enjoyable listen to the end. Very much looking forward to book 2.
Loved it. Mr. Sanderson once again doesn't disapoint. Great start to the series. Rich character devrlopment. Mr. Kramer also does a masterful job with his performance.
I can't say enough. Either about Sanderson or Kramer. they're both the best in their fields (In my opinion). this entire series (and really. anything done by either Sanderson or Kramer) is worth your undivided attention.
Think that this is an excellent book for guys and gals to read. I felt very connected to Vin and love reading how her character progressed. There are lots of times I dropped my jaw in surprise due to twists in a chapter.
although I feel like some story elements found in this book were more enjoyable in the stormlight archive, I did enjoy this book and would definitely recommend it. character development is outstanding.
I was really happy with this book! Even though it's a very long listen, I found myself not wanting it to end (luckily there are two more books!). I am not typically a sci-fi fan, and took a chance on this book based on a recommendation from a friend. So glad I did! The story has a few holes, but nothing too jarring. Besides that the characters are complex and relatable, and their journeys are intriguing and inspiring. Additionally, the plot is intricately woven and extremely creative, while also paying homage to traditional myths and heroic journeys. I find some sci-fi tropes to be overly complex and confusing, but this one hit just the right balance. Give it a try!
There is a reason this author was chosen to finish "The wheel of Time" series - because he is an amazing writer. I started with the wheel of time and after reading the last two books I knew that I would be seeking out Sanderson's other books afterward.
I think his pacing is even better than his mentor's - I never find myself bogged down with obtuse details. Moving immediately to book 2 of this series!
