Not bad, decent character development, great insights into the society she created. Low action. As I was looking for story & action I was half fulfilled. I also felt like the writer wasn't true to the story; so my final reaction was that it was a bit of a lame duck.
Cuz the story could have been great...BUT you can't train characters for 7 years with really mean people and have them fall for obvious tricks every time they train...um Annoying is the only word that addresses this. Same for thinking non part of the group thoughts...its enough time to act like you belong......The story and ideas are great.....but what looks like a Lamborghini is a Ford Taurus...watch the brakes....
You can drive to it, but you won't listen to it all the time...its not that interesting. Too predictable and easy for our beloved hero.
This is like someone followed a how to book on writing a fantasy novel. Character does this, insert name here. Its consistent and reminds me of The Goblin Tower. Your hero is the hero for a reason, and he and his friends have suffered. We'll tell you about it ..but the world the book is in always works out and things never go wrong enough for there to be a problem.
I also wanted to like the Airbender movie...I didn't though. This was better and much more cogent than than, but compared to his other works this story was a bit of a disappointment....just not at the level you expect from Brandon. Now if I was writing it....you could cut me some slack...but not so much.
A little confusing at times....but a great and wonderful tale. Valen, is fun, so is the world...dangerous, nasty, harsh, but fun and intelligent...yeah! I highly recommend this ride!
This was such a clean feeling book...Not quite what I would hope for from Steven King WuTang Style oh well...still wanted to get to the end....
Not horrible, but not really satisfying. I had to turn it off a few times because the life lessons the protagonist picks up are a bit overwhelming at times. I wanted more, still wanting is all I can say.
This is like an EPIC lite...all the detail seems left off here. Great ideas, fun story but you zip through things that should take more time. There is room for story arcs of this book , but I wish the book had taken the time to cover things that only need a chapter or so. Although complete, it almost felt like some pages were ripped out and you got MOST of the story.
Yeah, It needs a bit more but you still want to turn the pages.
Committed, Dwarf Like, Not distracting
wanted more...I mean they are Dwarves..make it so.
The fun of it.....Just fun Good Stuff and Fun!
Its great to see the world that the Mistborn created. It is even more fun when it moving fast, and has two guns on its hips. This was a good story, very engaging and entertaining.
