    Andrew Wiggin is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies.

    "great book"
    Overall

    I really liked the book, I thought a long time ago that maybe the author was just looking to cash in just a little more on the popularity of the series, but I the book added to the overall story and was in and of itself very good.

    An author whose previous, wildly successful novels have earned him a reputation as fantasy's master of magic, Brandon Sanderson continues to dazzle audiences with this tale of princesses and gods. In this extraordinary world, those who attain glory return as gods. And those who can master the essence known as breath can perform the most wondrous miracles - or unleash the most devastating havoc.

    Would you try another book from Brandon Sanderson and/or James Yaegashi?

    I have been listening to most of Brandon Sanderson's books, and I haven't disliked any yet. In this novel, I was really unhappy with James Yaegashi. I have never read this book, but I still didn't like how James portrayed some of the characters.


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Yaegashi’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I like Brandon Sanderson, but his books tend to take a really long time to get into.

    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.

    What disappointed you about The Way of Kings?

    I really like Brandon Sanderson, and I am familiar with Michael Kramer, but when Kate is reading anything that is not a character speaking, she has a really annoying and very defined speech patern. My head may explode by the end of the book.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Henrik says: "What an incredible audio book"
    "tortureous redundancy"
    Overall

    I know that a lot of people love this book, but I have to disagree. There is so much required for you to actually get the story.
    The author takes no time in establishing that the general population is very unintelligent and follow like sheep. She then proceeds to treat the reader as if he/she were part of that general population.
    It is impossible to disagree with most of the view points of the author, so I got tired of the repetitive sermon after the first couple hours of the novel.
    A good example, is the speech that one of the main characters gives to the world near the end of the book. The speech is supposed to be geared towards people in the book, but instead I had to listen to the bable for over two hours. I don't need the speech, I am not one of the sheep. Summing it up by telling the reader that the speech happened would have been quite enough.
    Torture!!

    In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, Richard Cypher encounters a mysterious woman, Kahlan Amnell, in his forest sanctuary. She seeks his help...and more. His world, his very beliefs, are shattered when ancient debts come due with thundering violence.

    A User says: "Better than the show"
    "don't start this series..."
    Overall

    The overall story in the 'Sword of Truth' series is good, but the whole thing could have been told in 4 books instead of 11. Instead the author spends half of his time preaching, and a large part of every book reviewing what has already happened. I read the earlier book before I read the 10th, I know what happens!
    Early in the first book you can tell how anti-socialism the author is, but through the series it grows and starts to become very anti-religous.
    As I said about half the series is the author blatently preaching. I don't know how this series was ever made into a tv show.
