Myself a geeky engineer. I like in the following order, 1 - SciFi, 2 - Fantasy, 3 - Thrillers, 4 - Mysteries. My most most memorable book was "Dune" by Frank Herbert. My most thought provoking book, "On A Pale Horse" by Peirce Anthony.
While it was a little predictable there was enough suspense that I kept coming back. The princess attitude is infectious.
it needs a sequal!!! i want to know what happens to everyone.....even if its just a short story. im always sad when i finish this book. ive read it several times now
The story was slow and plodding. The characters were annoying. The readers inflections started to grate on me. I finished it hoping for some dramatic twist and was left very disappointed.
Like other titles by Sanderson, this book is more about a cool magic system than character or plot development. That, combined with his penchant for making every single character he's ever invented prone to raising their eyebrows at a moments notice make this a c in my book. just not as engaging as it should be
The story is thrilling and genius, taking you through every turn and twist of the fairy tales - and then a few more you'd never expect!
Totally wish I could visit Elantris for real!
I thought it would be a simple fantasy but it's dimensions surprised me! I wish there was a sequel.
This was an incredibly exciting and enjoyable book. The characters were well fleshed out, the dialogue on spot and there was a lovely mixture of humor and action throughout. The exploration of the themes of religion and faith was well done, and mirrored real life.
I really enjoyed this book. This was not my first Sanderson, and it definitely will not be my last. I look forward to more From this tremendously creative and talented writer. For those who haven't, please read 'The Way of Kings' and 'Words of Radiance'. Fantastic stuff!
