I like epic fiction and this book certainly has the plots and sub plots to keep us entertained for many years,
The characters are very likeable
They are my favorite readers I have actually searched for books read by both
Yes I have listened twice
too much of a gap between books,
It is up in the top 10
I like how the author debate when is the right time to use violence
I really like this book, I read most of Brandon Sanderson work and I think this is his best one.
Full time mom, avid reader - epic fantasy is my favorite but will read almost anything
I absolutley loved this book and can not wait for the next one. I caught myself staring at the speaker and holding my breath in anticipation. Mr. Sanderson, I am hooked.
Rich in interesting character development, lots of intrigue, unpredictability throughout and professional narration. I'm hopeful that Book 2 is close in coming.
Possibly number one.
Probably Kaladin, however Dolinar and Shallon are both very good.
Hard to say anything specific, they are both excellent on there own but the combination of them both add something. Perhaps it is just nice to hear a female voice for a female character and vice versa.
There were many, probably more than I remember. Kaladins moment facing the honor chasm was one.
This book is an extremely strong opening to what may one day be considered one of the greatest fantasy series ever written. There is a direction and vision this story is headed towards which may be more intricate and have more depth than some of the other great series that are wildly popular today. The way of kings is one of the best pieces of writing I have ever read, it may very well be the best. Most long books and openings to series I have read have had some noticeable flaws, but after read one I cannot point out anything significant.
I would most definitely recommend this book to a friend! My only problem with this book is that I got it too soon and the second is not released as of yet. I cannot stand waiting for the next in line!
The death defying bridge runs.
Kaladin and anytime he had a spear in his hand.
Not quite the beginning was a bit slow, but it is a large book, but by the end I would find excuses to be alone so I could listen to the book.
The Way of Kings is thus far my favorite audio book.
The Way of Kings is epic its list of characters much like Wheel of Time by Jordan and Sanderson. No surprises there as Sanderson was a big Jordan fan and finished the series when Jordan passed.
Kate and Michael offer such variety of voice and give life and personality to each of the characters. Upon repeated listening it is quite easy to recognize the characters sole by the voice. These two are far and away my favorites!
Within the storm the radiant light shines.
Listen more than once. It is an amazing read with so much detail you need to hear it twice.
Yes, Very well done book, great story line I couldn't stop listening to it.
don't want to give anything away... there are many great moments in this book
These two work great together.
When is the next book coming out??? i can't wait!
Wow! I am so glad I read this in 2013 rather than when it first came out. It would have drove me crazy to wait 4 years for a sequel. I read a review in which the reviewer actually criticized the author for being too imaginative. That was the clincher for me.. a worthy selection PLUS 50 hours of amazing storytelling for 1 audible credit!!! A trustworthy author, wonderful characters, lots of poignant reflections and provoking questions interwoven into the story, great readers and a thoroughly delicious tale. Just finished the book today and am looking forward to the sequel next year. For now, onto the next Sanderson book!
It is worth your time and credit
Very good performance
Too long to listen to in one sitting, but it holds your attention
