I ended up really enjoying The Way of Kings, but it took me a bit to get into it. The story is definitely worth it though and I will be quickly jumping into the second book.
The biggest downside to the performance was the two narrators. Michael Kramer was great as usual, but I found myself dreading anytime Kate Reading began to narrate. The fact that Sadeas was pronounced one way throughout the whole story by Michael - and then she started pronouncing it differently really became distracting.
It was a very small dislike in the end, but was overall a wonderful performance.
This is a great epic fantasy I enjoyed the storyline immensely. However a lot of the plant fauna and description of the world is different than what you would expect from our current world so it's hard to follow some of the storyline. Overall a great book can't wait to read the next one
Incredible story and character development! I got so sucked into the character's lives that I felt like I knew them and I worried for them. While listening to the last battle scene I was driving my kids to school with the book playing in one ear, tears in my eyes quietly shouting "save them...you have to save them "
(There is a name pronunciation guide in the back of the book. .. even if you're not going to pronounce the name right, could both readers be consistent in how a name is pronounced? Sometimes it's hard to follow a story when a "new"character appears out of no where just because a different person is reading. )

So much love and care into creating characters and places. Gives you chills and keeps you going. Starts off a little odd but ends up amazing.
it took a while to get into the story, but about a quarter way in it picked up speed and got quite good. I didn't like the choice of cove actor for the male part of the story, I found his voice very inflexible. The female voice actor I found quite good. over all it was a really good story.
Sanderson has a way of making stories come full circle. With inspiring characters and a beautifully crafted universe his stories are a must read for fiction lovers.
I feel like Brandon Sanderson does an amazing job of putting you in the shoes of the person who's point of view you are currently going through, you can feel the Bridgeboys pain, and the anxiety that Shalon goes through.
I will not answer this because it is a huge spoiler.
I feel like they do a much better job of feeding emotion into the story than if i was reading it in my head.
good lord no its like 50 hours.
An amazing book, you should listen to it.
