I didn't read the book, just listened to it but I liked how the reader created his characters
ummmm.... can't distinguish between the books anymore as I went from one to the other as soon as I finished it.
The different accents. I would have read them all the same.
I have no idea.
I am a Chef and have two boys. I also have 2 accounts.
After passing over this book many times, i finally decided to give it a try and am happy I did.
All of the reviews I read said just to buy the whole series all at once, that they were that good. You know what? I didnt. I tested the waters. I hemmed and hawed about it. I regretted not buying the whole thing all at once.
This is a fantastic series with unique characters and a believable world. With twists and turns you dont expect, it keeps you guessing all the way to the very end of the last book.
Just buy it, the whole series, all at the same time. You wont regret it.
Wow! Another amazing Brandon Sanderson novel! This novel was not as complex and intricate as The Way of Kings, but it was still amazing! Sanderson has created an unbelievable fantasy world and obviously put a ton of time and energy into every aspect of the Final Empire. I love the depth of Sanderson's worlds. He leaves no stone unturned. From the various peoples that populate the Final Empire, to their historys, religions, and their supernatural powers of allomancy and feruchemy. I love how everything ties together and just works. Sanderson does such an amazing job sculpting, crafting, and describing the Final Empire and everything in it that I can actually imagine a place like this existing somewhere in this great big universe we live in.
Brandon Sanderson is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I'm moving on to book two in this series today.
Michael Kramer, once again, did an amazing job with the narration. I'm amazed at how he manages to create a voice, tone, everything for each character. He really brings the characters to life and adds an immeasurable depth to an already great story.
One of the best I've listened to, at least in the fantasy genre.
The early Wheel of Time books: interesting, varied cast of characters and first-rate world building.
Breeze- his voice was just right for the character.
There was one twist at the end that surprised and upset me, but it was appropriate for the story and let me know this series would be unpredictable and dark-edged.
The only quibble I have is how heavily Sanderson lays on the descriptions of the process of allomancy early in the novel, and the repetition of phrases stands out in audio format. I was gritting my teeth every time I heard "Kelsier burned tin."
Brandon Sanderson does such a fabulous job depicting worlds, that envisioning them is natural. I was hooked on this series within a few chapters. I couldn't get the next book fast enough. This series has it all, laughter, struggles, battles and thought provoking to boot.
As a huge fan of Fantasy and Sci-Fi series, I am always excited when I happen upon another promising fascination. I have just finished Mistborn: The Final Empire (book 1) and I loved it from start to finish. The characters were engaging, the voice acting was great, and the plot was exciting. It isn't the most original plot, but I love this type of book and Sanderson does a brilliant job. I am always looking for entertaining works, and I promise you won't be disappointed with this one.
in the top 5
the characters and how they are being developed.
Yes. He helps to keep the people in the story recognizable.
I am a simple rat that reads until satisfied; sometimes I read too much and all hell breaks loose. Beware of history, fantasy, and religion.
This was a good read that took me away for a while. The world is new and on this front it rates very high indeed. This is one book that should not be left unread by the fantasy enthusiast.
This does not have the strength of history of the White Gold Wielder, but it falls within such a realm where the world is novel.
His work enhances a good story.
When your hope is killed before one's eyes, what happens? Who steps forward to carry out the dream.
Audiobooks keep me sane- great actors are much better voices in my head than my own. I prefer sf&f, but occasionally fall back on high lit.
Yes. Except for the few things you don't get in audio- maps and drawings.
No. This series in incomparable. My second-favorite novel of all time.
Some of my favorite characters in literature are in this series. And the magic is new and different. Learning to burn metals with Vin is one of my favorite experiences in literature. And there is not another broken world that I want to live in more than the Final Empire. Seriously. Read these novels.
