Got a real interesting plot line. Just no story line worth listening too.
Thinking you can just make up names and tack them on to a bad novel and call it science fiction.
Been listening to this book for 20 hours now and can't stomach the thought of finishing it. . It seems they took a bad story and changed a few words to a science fiction theme. One of the worst books I have ever listened to.
I liked it a lot. there were some slow parts but overall It kept things interesting from the 1st chapter to the end. some parts I loved and some I hated and some I found myself completely shocked which I think makes a book great. I hope another book is in the near future because I want more.
I hate to try and pronouns made up words so I would never have attempted to read this book. I'm glad I found it on audible because it was good. It took me out of my norm of reading/listening.
I would recommend this book, there were plenty of twists and turns in it, it kept me entertained, and as always I appreciate a good book that I'm not embarrassed to listen to if my kids are around. I like that Brandon made a book that wasn't just for teens, and still kept it clean. There were politics, sickness, magic, religion, love etc... It seamed to have it all. Not as action packed as some of his other books. Enjoy the book:)
thw book was entertaining, easy to listen to... dragged a little in the middle and everything happened just how you would expect or imagine. the parts of the story following reodin were much more entertaining than the rest.
Let me state that I am not new to this genre nor the authors work. I am unhappy with this novel because there is not enough development or narration by the author or actor for me to discern the characters that get thrown at you in the first 4 hours.
The story of Elantris was a good one. I struggled the entire time with how much the narrator sounded like Alan Alda to the point of distraction.
