Honor, Battle, and Truth
The characters were very vivid, and the story kept me anxious to hear what happens next.
It's hard to say which scene exactly was my favorite, but I particularly liked the scene towards the end where two of the main characters have finally merged paths.
That would have been overwhelming, provided the book is almost 46 hours long, but the story kept me incredibly interested. It took me a few months to listen to as I was only listening for 30-45 minutes at a time. I often tried to make sure I could finish the whole chapter, and the last few hours of the book, I made extra time to listen to with fewer interruptions.
There were two narrators for this book, and both did a great job and played the character voices well. There was more of the story told by the male narrator, and his voices were well differentiated, often I could tell who was speaking due to his voice before he stated who was speaking.
The female narrator was also splendid, however, there was one scene where I was utterly confused why she narrated it instead of the male. From the three main story lines, he narrated 2 of them, and she one, however in the last few chapters of the book, she narrated one scene from the other story line, and pronounced a semi-main character's name differently, which seemed a poor production choice. Her narrating that story line, when she hadn't before, and using a different pronunciation of the name was quite confusing at first until I realized she was saying it differently.
Overall, they both were wonderful narrators and were great to listen to, I just wish the producers had paid more attention to that one anomaly.
Excellent. Absolutely fantastic. Excellent. This story was absolutely fantastic. The narration is very good but the story, the story is mind-boggling, intricate, deep, absolutely extraordinary.
Honestly the greatest high fantasy work of fiction I have ever read, the author created a completely original world with it's own lore and not borrowing anything from anywhere except maybe some lovecraftian concepts of story telling.
If you like lore rich stories, this book has it.
If you like bad ass fights and epic battles, this book has it.
If you like magic and the theory/theology behind it, this book has that.
If you want a character to fall in love with, the book is told from so many perspectives it would be difficult for you not to fall in love with a character.
Love this series. Brandon Sanderson is an artist when it comes to creating entire worlds. This book leads up to the next which starts bringing the separate plot lines together. Can't wait for the next one to come out!
I feel this book is the necessary evil of a great series. Honestly not a whole lot of excitement for the majority of the book. Really feel like it was a pure character/story development book, and a long one at that. BUT the end of the book brought it all together and left you feening for more. Undoubtedly getting the next book right away.
The book takes its time in all things, but weaves a wonderful story. The protagonists seem inactive for much of the book but it is a slow build to a climactic and exciting finish.
One thing that bothered me is that the two narrators pronounced some words and names differently.
This book is amazing! Sanderson is a genius and has a masterful way of guiding your imagination. He builds the characters perfectly and a little twist here, another one there and then boom! Sixth time through and I love it.
