the whole truth kind of guy
Fantastic book and fantastic narration
There is never a dull moment and you are left wanting more. Can't wait to hear the other books
This book ranks among the top of the books I've listened to on Audible. This has a Terry Goodkind feel to me regarding the world and character development. Nothing is missing and listening through the book brings you to each location to experience events and situations with each character.
(Doing my best not to induce spoilers) The most memorable part of the book for me was the part when Kaliden and Sil are watching the slaughter and he has to make the decision to save his men or save the army. I also liked the part when Kaliden met Wit out on the plains. It lets you know there's so much more going on than what's directly in front of the reader.
There's several characters in the book I really enjoyed. Rock was a great character, very wise but because of the language barrier he was very simple. Can't remeber his name but the one-armed bridgeman is a great character. Sil by far is one of my favorites, her character development I didn't expect but very much enjoyed
(Another Spoiler Alert). When Kaliden thinks about killing himself and Sil tells him she's leaving because he's given up on life is one of the moving parts in the book.
I had a hard time wrapping my brain around the time warps. Didn't understand the significance in the story.
Already picked up the next addition. Ready to see how Kaliden develops with Dalegar
fight through the beginning. the first few hours are a bit hard to follow, but you will be rewarded!
towards the end, the two narrators pronounce a main characters name differently, which is slightly annoying, but other than that, terrific narration!
A little long and dry in the middle, especially when the author just keeps layering and layering more mysteries of the realm on your head. But WELL worth the read. Great story and performance.
This book was a little difficult to understand in the beginning, because the world Brandon Sanderson has created is unique and strange. The world has a depth of history that covers thousands of years. The characters are engaging and ring true. The magic is unusual and strange, but internally consistent. The story is a work of genius, and the narration is brilliant. This book will be a strong contender for the Hugo award. I can't praise it highly enough. The only caution is that it is a complex book that demands a lot from the reader or listener.
She sounded like a robot! No emotion at all. Kind of wish this was being read by the guy who narrated GOT
Seriously, I needed to. I was up till three last night hanging on words, worried about characters, cheering on Heroes. I'm tired now and I need a nap.
Brandon Sanderson at his best!!!! Brandon has become one of my favorite authors. I can't wait to read the next one!!!
