Fantasy fanatic, sci fi dabbler
I'm not usually one for short stories, but this one really drew me in. I won't spoil the concept for you, other than to say it makes for an interesting, flawed and entertaining character. I would love to read a full length novel, but this is still a satisfying listen.
I agree with everyone that this is a solid and good book, although short. Many has seemed to look between the fingers on the shortness though. I feel the whole setup and storytelling is harmed by the shortness and I keep feeling Sanderson took too many shortcuts with his usually thourough writing. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoyed every part of it, but I do not dare giving it a good as grade as his other books. Even if this book was meant to be written in an easy to pick up and read in a sitting way, I feel he overdid it. Also, even with his almost unlimited power of his vision I never really felt their power in this book. Lets hope the next one really shines in this department.
I have to admit, I really only ordered this book because it was offered as a free book. But now that I've listened to it, wow! What a great reading! The writing was excellent! I listened to this while building a miniature dollhouse just as background noise, but after the first chapter, I found myself listening more intently and forgot to work on the dollhouse. definitely recommend this to everyone!
Imaginative concept, executed masterfully. Each "aspect" has a unique personality.
My only complaint is that the story is so short! I want more!! And so, I'm off to read the sequel!
However, the story is fun and keeps you entertained. I will continue the series. I would like to see where it goes and how it grows.
