Skillfully written. Beautiful setting. Amazing characters. Enthralling events. Keeps you returning for more. Highly recommend. Beginning Book 2 immediately.
Yes, yes, and yes!
I love the creativity and the life the Brandon puts into his characters.
Yes I have also listened to Words of Radiance. They are great narrators.
"Life before death, Strength before weakness, Journey before destination" I got this tattooed.
Anything by Brandon Sanderson is priceless.
Fantastic first book to series, so much I can not wait to delve into the sequel! The last desolation is upon us, can they be bound together?
Maybe after a couple years, when you,ve had time to forget details
Good action sequences,
When changing from male to female narrator the female changed the pronunciation of the name Sadeus (not sure of spelling). It took me a minute to realize they were the same person.
It was slow starting at first (just like in Mistborn) but once the background had been lain, it moved along pretty well.
Mike and Kate killin it again. Both are amazing narrators. My 1 tiny quam: Narrators should collaborate to pronounce Pro Nouns (names) exactly the same.
As far as the author/story goes: A breath of fresh air. Strong Characters, a complete reality other than real life (true fantasy), and an original usage/origin of power (stormlight/lashing) makes this novel just that, "NOVEL." Sanderson has created something special, new, and original. a true stand alone body of work.
This was a great story. As is common with many first book in the series, there was a lot of story building going on which seem to take a long time. That is very common in the first, and a long book, of a long series. Other than that, this universe is unique and different from anything else I'd ever read before. The characters were deep, colorful, and inspired. So far I loved it.
The two readers pronounced names differently making it difficult listening to the female reader she began in chapter 68
This was the first time I bought the audio book and kindle book together. Very cool to transition between them. Great story and I can't wait to read the next 9 books!
