DO NOT READ THIS WITHOUT READING BOOK ONE.
One of the best second books in a trilogy I have read.
So many of my previous questions were answered and yet it I finished knowing there was more to come. The insights, plot twists, and surprises kept me listening. I love trying to solve the mysteries of a story and love it even more when the author is able to surprise me with a realist alternative as to where I thought we were going.
I wasn't sure about the narrator at first but then, after an hr or two I realized that he has fantastic range and was more than capable of bringing the book and it's characters to life. This book and series has blown my mind so far and I'm so glad I gave it a chance. The premise and story is almost simplistic but so imaginative that I can't get enough.
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
What a fantastic book! I have really grown to love the writing style of Sanderson through this series, as well as the narration style of Kramer. What a great pairing. The story line in this book is nothing short of brilliant. Such amazing characters, and very smart writing. It is so refreshing to read a writer that writes with such depth and color. Every part of the story is needed, and told so well. I can't wait to read the next and final book in the initial trilogy of the Mistborn series!
Having no started with the book and transferring over to the audiobook, I found it difficult due to the chapters not aligning. For example: I am on chapter 13 currently in the book, but in the audiobook it is chapter 5. Please fix!
I really enjoyed this second book more than the first. Give into the premise and enjoy the ride. Great fun!
I would say that this whole book was a bunch of filler material. It was not at all engaging like the first book of the series.
Made the series two books
Maybe but his "S" sounds are hard on the ears.
I feel like these books were written for reading with time passing in-between each publication. If you are listening to them back-to-back like I am, it feels like there are a few too many pieces of 'reminder text'. The recollections of past events get repetitive, but it was another very enjoyable story.
