Well, I really never did much reading. But after finding audio books. I can't seem to stop listening. Thanks Audible!
After listening to the Gathering Storm that Mr. Sanderson picked up after Robert Jordan passed on. I found that Mr. Sanderson did a wonderful job on the Gathering Storm! I then started to look at some of his other books and this was the first I picked up. Again Mr. Sanderson ability to tell a story in detail was very enjoyable. Although some may not like this, I often find I like knowing every little detail about everything!
Michael Kramer as always does a wonderful job in making the stories come to life! Mr. Sanderson, if you had a hand in picking Mr. Kramer to read your books... Well done Sir!
Thank you Mr. Sanderson and Mr. Kramer for the many hours of enjoyment, and I'll continue to listen to the rest of the series!
This is a superb trilogy with fantastic narration that puts you inside the story,relating with every character. Be careful if you listen and drive, you might get too wraped up in the story !! One of the best books I have ever listened to!!
Sanderson does it again! I simply loved what he did with book 12 of the wheel of time, so I thought I would try another of his books. This book was very different but I easily found my self getting lost in the world that Sanderson created. I very highly recommend. GREAT READ!
The story was decent to begin with but by the end of it I was completely involved. That's all you can ask for from a book: that it COMPLETELY sucks you in and you COMPLETELY forget that it is a created world made up of written words and not-real peeps. BIGtime. I hope the next one is just as good (fingers crossed).
I loved this book so much that when I was done reading it, I've turned around to listen to it on audiobook. I haven't read that many fantasy series but this one is one of my favorites.
Dune made me realize that I like Sci-Fi, but Mistborn has sunk the hook even deeper. Sanderson has quite the imagination, and Kramer does a very good job of narration.
You will not likely regret the choice to listen to this series. Mr Sanderson has developed a imaginative magic system that is well thought out and plays nicely throughout the entire series. There are unexpected turns and pitfalls that also have a lasting impact on the series. The main characters are not elementary and questions of good and evil are not so clearly cut.
I fell into it on a whim mostly, wanting to get a feel for the author of the final WOT books and fell in love the the books.
The audio is excellent (those familiar with the audio versions of WOT will recognize Michael Kramer's skill here).
OK, I only got this book because I needed something to listen to and it had pretty good reviews. I am so glad I did. The story was very unique and powerful. That description really didn't to the book justice. I really hope this author has more good things to follow.
Absolutely one of the best Audible experiences ever. A fantastic story with an extraordinary narrator. This volume holds its own a a single book, but leave you anxious for more.
Don't miss this one!
What a unique storyline! Sanderson creates a world totally unlike any fantasy series I've read so far. I just came off the Wheel of Time series (which I hear Sanderson will be completing, rest in peace Robert Jordan).
I'm excited to complete this series and see where Sanderson takes WOT!
