interesting characters and magic system. story was really well done. did not follow a predictable build up to climax and done patten a lot of books seem follow.
one of my favorite books!
All of the characters were so believable and unique. So much happened yet i feel we've only touched the tip of the iceberg in this series. I'll be listening to the next one right now!
Mistborn has possibly been the best fantasy book I have read in a long time. The characters have depth and each piece of the storyline ties together beautifully.
The narrator is brilliant and I will definitely look out for more books narrated by him!
This story is great but it would've been better if the director had used his narrator correctly. in the beginning the narrator is monotone and emotionally flat. while it never gets like a normal narration it does towards the middle of the book have a little more emotion in The Voice. the story was good enough that I kept listening despite the annoying narration.
The narration was phenomenal, but I was somewhat annoyed by his voicing of Vin, as it seemed a little too quiet and timid for the character. Other than that minor bit of complaining on my part, I loved the narration, and the book was great!
Sanderson builds his world masterfully. His characters grow throughout the tale adding great depth to the story, which quickly draws you in. It was hard to "put it down" or more appropriatly, to shut it off.
I wasn't initially a fan of the narrator, Michael Kramer, at least at first. But after the first few chapters I got used to what seemed to me odd word & end of sentence vocal inflections. I had also increased the speed very slightly, which helped me tremendously. (I typically read very fast).
Once I speed up playback around %20 it was an enjoyable listen. By the end of the book I realized I actually enjoy Kramer's reading & especially his character voices, which are surprisingly good.
I'm downloading the next novel as I write this review and can't wait to get back into it!
I am utterly blown away. By the book itself, and the narrator. All thumbs up. I started to go on walks instead of just sitting in my room, and these walks quickly became a daily ritual. And now...it's finished. Book two, here I come.
