Man I'm addicted to audible!! I enjoy fiction books a little too much
I've listened to pretty much all of Brandon sander sons books not including the wheel of time ones he co authored and finished and I was holding off on this one... Not sure why !! This book was so good. Sanderson will take old ideas mixed with new ones and write something that you feel like you heard before but at the end of the novel you go hmmm so this is what this looks like in full quality 6 million fps 4d
awesomeness... Refreshing .... Sanderson is literally one of the best and Michael Kramer as the reader, what more can you ask for :)
I like pretty much everything from Brandon Sanderson, so I just decided to listen to everything he has ever written. I didn't LOVE Elantris, so I wasn't expecting much from this novel. However, I found myself really enjoying it! Michael Kramer's performance brought a lot of life to the characters, and the I was entranced by the amount of thought that went into Rithmatics. By the end of the novel I wanted to be a Rithmatist just to try out some of my strategies!
Give the book a try, it's light-hearted but still engrossing, and I really want more in the series!
I have read around 12 Sanderson books and have never been disappointed. However, I had a hard time hanging in to the end of this one. I didn't feel the continuity in the story or the characters. I stuck it out but in the end I was not left with a good impression overall. Won't keep me from coming back for more Brandon Sanderson though. The man has a brilliant imagination.
AMAZING like everything Brandon Sanderson writes I'll have to grab a hard copy or kindle version and relisten to it again soon with the diagrams.
The Rithmatist feels like a mix between a Harry Potter novel, a murder mistery and a fantasy epic I've come to expect from Sanderson. The magic system in this novel is as complex as it is entertaining yet Sanderson never over uses magic. Instead the protagonist relies on his wits to perform and to entertain. Micheal Kramer does an amazing job narrating this novel and truly brings it to life. Thank you Bryan Sanderson for writing such quality novels and I can't wait for the next installment!
The story felt daunting at first but once you got used to the ideas it was great. Sanderson has excellent characters again and a fun story that I felt invested in.
