Intriguing. Action. Unexpected.
Its fabulous! I loved every moment!
Great book! I always have a difficult time getting into a book. This one had my attention right off. I didn't want to take my ear phones out...narrator did a great job and was enjoyable to listen to.
Very pleasant to listen to!
As is with many of Sanderson's works, this book leaves you wanting more. I loved this book. It was an out of the box concept and very well written. It takes a lot for me to be draw into a book but this one had my attention from the start and held it.The end did not disappoint. Loved it!
The narrator sounded like a amateur actress doing a cold read...I was not impressed. It seemed like she did better as the book went on though. I could listen to her though and I would not mind hearing her in something else but I did not think she was great.
I am not a big romance novel reader so I cannot critique the story or author all that much other than to say that I was not impressed with the writing style. It sounded like a high schooler trying to impress her english teacher with too many big words. I know the girl in the book is suppose to be smart, but no one speaks like that, so it was not very believable. I'm not big on the audio porn but some of it was erotic and fun to listen to but not nearly as risque as it was built up to be. Some parts were a little drug out but not too bad. Overall I wanted to listen all the way to the end and I enjoyed it. I'm curious about the other books but I am not aching to listen to them or anything.
I have listen to this series for years. The characters voices in my ears almost every day. It was incredibly painful to loose some of my favorite characters ( I wont give away who, but one I loved and cried so hard at the death of) Over all though, I was satisfied with the ending. It had some good surprises and wrapped up just about everything. It was well worth all the time put into it. I plan to listen through all of them for a third time one day. I love this series by Robert Jordan and I love how Sanderson did the last three books justice. Well done.
There is nothing I did not LOVE about this book and cannot wait for more! Like so much of Sanderson's work it is a fresh take on fantasy.
I'll be honest, I thought this one was going to be sub par but it was a great book that left me wanting more. It didn't take away from the Mistborn series like I though it would. It did well standing alone. I would read it again and highly recommend it.
Really, can Sanderson do any wrong? lol ...I really liked this young adult book. It is such a different concept, as is with so many of Sanderson's books. I would listen to it again and would love for my kids to read or listen to it when they are older. I very much enjoyed it!
I really did like the original SOT series (although I think Goodkind totally ripped of Robert Jordan's WOT!!!!) The writing is lacking in my opinion. He acts like his audience is brain dead by stating the obvious and constantly repeating himself. But overall a good story and love the characters. ....But it should have stopped there!!! He his now just hacking at the story and wont just let it be. Wright something else already! Readers always want more but 12 books is enough! (Or however many the series had)... I am pained to have to listen to this book and the only motivation for going on is because I paid for it!
Yes, I would. I read this when I was about 11. It is for older children but even as an adult I enjoyed listening to it again. I had several brothers and sisters so I could very much relate to this book.
It is a very sweet story and one that encouraged me to be good as a child.
