Excellent, creative, young adult book - - thoroughly enjoyed by an old adult! Very "Sanderson" in how he invents the science of his worlds.
A review requires at least 20 words? That's insanely stupid. All I wanted to say was that this book is awesome. Give it a high rating so anyone looking knew it was good. No one wants to read a review that is at least 20 words.
Fascinating and completely novel ideas well worked through by the best author out there. Written for preteens and adults alike. This is a very unique book, with a magic system unlike any other. The characters are relatable and entertaining. This world begs for more books to be written about it. You will enjoy it!!!
This book was more entertaining than I was anticipating based on the description. This went from a reluctant read to a craving for the sequel.
Thank you again Brandon Sanderson.
Great story. Compelling for all ages. But we need another book!! Good as is, but definitely leaves you wanting more.
Honestly I have mixed feeling every time I pick up a book by Brandon Sanderson. On one hand he is an amazing author creating fantastic worlds with interesting magic systems. On the other I'm always wanting more haha he will leave you waiting in anticipation for his next book. I highly recommend all of his books but be ready to have a new addiction.
The Rithmatist left me with a huge smile on my face. This book was an absolute joy to listen to. I'll probably buy the print version too so I can see the drawings that I missed out on.
The world is just different enough from our world to make it familiar yet fascinating.
Very interesting book. Purchased for my kids, but I don't believe my youngest, who's less than 10, would understand. There are descriptions of drawings throughout the whole book and I think it would be difficult for him to comprehend without actually seeing the pictures. The story itself was great. Never disappointed by a book by Sanderson. Took me a bit to get used to the narrator's inflection, but it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the book.
I love to listen to audiobooks. My favorite genre's would be Sci-fi and Fantasy.
This was a terrible idea for a story that was masterfully written. The only problem with this entire book is the base idea. Oddly, that isn't very hard to get past. In addition, Sanderson is a master of characters and it that shows in this novel.
If you have read and likes his other works you will like this one too.
