The Stormlight Archive had big shoes to fill after reading what I considered a masterpiece by GRRM. I am glad to tell you that this series doesn't disappoint. The story is so engaging that I found myself genuinely excited or enraged at some points, which almost never happens to me. The cast of main characters are incredible. They seem to fit into stereotypical "types" at first but as the story continues each character surprises me with so much depth that leaves me itching for the story to come back to them so I know what they will do next. This allowed me to enjoy ALL of the book unlike many others I have read/listened too. Anyways I am just rambling now, do yourself a favor and buy this series. If you have just come off your ASOIAF high and feel like you have a gaping whole left in your soul trust me this series will fill it and leave you wanting more. New favorite series!!!
I have listened to this 4 times now. I love this series. Art work.
I hope this story is as good as it seemed. The narration was horrific and ruined it for me. I felt the the male narrator was reading a technical, equipment list/manual. The manner was distracting and nauseating. Skip the audiobook and do for the printed word on this one.
Audible is how I read.
ARE YOU KIDDING? or
CANNOT BE DONE!
When Kaladin and Shallan were in the trench...
They are the greatest pair of narrators. Superstars of the Narrating world. Love their voices!
An Adventure to finally match the word EPIC.
The book was slow to start & jumps around a lot in the beginning, but then it captures you completely.
Not only was it constantly interesting as a story must be to keep it's readers attached to it. The characters felt real, their development and growth made me feel connected to them. And using their different perspectives to tell the story at different points was brilliant!
Great battles, clever schemes, and compelling moments have made this book one of the best, if not the best story I've heard in years.
You will not be disappointed
I was skeptical of this book at first, but after some time, allowing myself to become immersed in the strange world, I became hooked. I listened to this for hours during my commutes and while working. I'd find myself sitting in my car after an hour and a half drive, just to finish the chapter I was so wrapped up in. Just read it storm you!
If you are like me, the fear of commitment will have you browsing for hours before making a selection. The fact that you are even reading this suggests that you are willing to spend the extra time before making your selection for fear of disappointment or wasting your time. Stop scrolling. This is what you're looking for.
