After reading mistborn series, the way of Kings and Words of Radiance I fell in love with his writing but this novel is so amateurish predictable and actually pathetic and so poorly written that I am amazed it made it to print let alone audio book. Do yourself a huge favour and avoid this like the plague.. Like I said earlier Rea's the way of kings.,words of radiance and the mistborn series they are great stories well written Elantris is just claptrap
It's interesting to see how the author has grown in voice, plot, and concept. It's easy to see parallels between this and other works. It passed the time but definitely not the authors best work.
The narrator of this book did a decent job I think, but the way clips were joined together hurt it. Particularly at the end of a section or chapter, the last word of one was followed immediately by the first word of the next, making for a rather jarring transition that was hard to follow.
This made it hard for me to get into the book at first, and I nearly gave up a couple of times in the first quarter or so. I am glad I stuck with it, as the story was good and worth the long listen.
I'm a fan of Sandersons work, but this one was slow from the beginning, and just kind of drug along. When it did pick up, the book was 90% finished. It is a part of his overall universe and may be referenced in future books. My rating, it was alright, but i probably wont relisten to this title.
Books that I could not finish, lack of action combat.
When the main character first got aeon door to work.
The Author personally told me this book would not suit me, I still had to try it. If you like intrigue especially political, this is for you. Many twist, well written and a great reader.
Need more books in this story line. I haven't been disappointed by Sanderson yet. It's a good listen if a bit slow to begin.
