a boy from norway 23 years old. listen to audiobooks beacause i i hate reading, but i love the storys that are written down.
to short story! i want more, i really like the characters in this book and that this is 300 years after the main story line, but still he put in a lot of the event from that time inside;) great narrater. good job narrater, good job.
This was a fun audiobook. When listening in my car I would often arrive at my destination and feel sad that I had to turn it off. It has likable characters and an engaging plot. Sanderson delivers again!
I have really come to love Sanderson's books! However, this was a bit short. Now, having been warned by others, I was prepared for a shorter story than is typical for this author, but what I didn't think of was how, in a 10 hour book, there isn't time for the masterpiece that Sanderson typically produces. We barely begin to get to know the characters before it comes to a close. One thing I miss is the back and forth between this character and that, and how it adds to the richness of the whole tale.
However, having said this, it was a bit fun to have a Sherlock and Holmes/ Wild West flavor. And as always, Sanderson is very imaginative. There was time for a few powers to be explored, but I was left wanting a bit more. To buy the next book or not?? If you are looking for a fairly light-hearted, fun, imaginative and entertaining story, then this will be good for you.
The other thing is that it might be a bit more acceptable than the first mistborn books for slightly younger audiences. Not quite as much gore (though there is always gore in his books), and sexual references are limited to a mention of "whores" and a line about rape. Neither are explored in depth. There is also mention of mistresses and someone being born as a bastard.
If you haven't read the whole Mist born series, you're missing out! The series is five stars, nonstop action, extremely well written and had me hooked right away. The narrator Michael Kramer adds so much depth to the characters, it took the book from an 11 out of 10 to a 12! A DEFINITE MUST READ!
