    Earth is conquered. The Shongairi have arrived in force, and humanity’s cities lie in radioactive ruins. In mere minutes, over half the human race has died. Now Master Sergeant Stephen Buchevsky, who thought he was being rotated home from his latest tour in Afghanistan, finds himself instead prowling the back country of the Balkans, dodging alien patrols and trying to organize the scattered survivors without getting killed.

    I think if the narrator did better at character distinguishment, it would have been better. Too single toned, sometimes I lost place in not knowing from who's perspective I was listening too. I regret this purchase.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    If you could sum up Words of Radiance in three words, what would they be?

    Words to live by, a story that embodies trials of life and choices many of us have to make.


    What other book might you compare Words of Radiance to and why?

    The Way of kings, because you cant have 2 without 1.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me laugh and cry, im 31, 6'5, 300 pounds, im not ashamed. I can sympathize and empathize with the characters. Now if only I could breath in stormlight. :)


    Any additional comments?

    Its a cliff hanger. Cudos to the narrators, and im thankful for a writer like Brandon Sanderson

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Would you listen to The Name of the Wind again? Why?

    Excellant naration. Characters to connect with in new ways, and familiar.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lets face it...without the narration a story can be crap, Nick Podehl, was awsome.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Ha! As a over the road driver....11 hours at a shot.....and some of my break....it hurt to turn it off.


    Any additional comments?

    If you miss this series...ignorance is probably bliss.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Narrated well, at first.....it carried on slow and annoying, sad, slow. (Please say there is. ..more. I grew to love it and was well pleased by the end. I want more. It was worth it. Don't make me wait.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Great continuation. Fantastic ending. When is the next one comeing? O, good job Jay Snyder.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    "well done."
    Overall

    There are some repeated feelings by character, but is well done none the less. The narrating was good, thanks too jay snyder. Hope the series continues.
