This had a whiney juvenile tone that none of his other books do.
I'll listen to more BSanderson, but not the Alcatraz series.
Toward the end there was some subtlety - comparative subtlety.
I've not read the print for some years. The audible rendition is so satisfying.
Brandon Sanderson carried the characters forward seamlessly. I'm so impressed.
There are so many it is hard to comment. I love Egwene's adventures - very relevant to women of today
WHAT? Individuality meets commonality
I've enjoyed this series for almost 20 years! A generation. Congratulations to all. Hope there is something to take it's place. Sanderson has given so much to the project, but others could carry the stories of Elaine, Perryn, Min, Rand, etc. forward. RIPE!!!!!
Possibly the worst book ever. Card's essay at the end has some good things to say, but the plot, characters etc. are overblown, unbelievable and annoying at best. The humor is embarrassing.
I think I've read almost everything Card has written and enjoyed it - I can't believe this is the same person. I listened to the whole thing because I kept thinking it would get better - after a while I realized I was only listening to it because I was angry enough to write a review.
It was an engrossing listen on a very long car trip. Moments of true brilliance.
This is one of the best books written. I never re-read a book, except this one. I've read the hard copy twice and have listened to the spoken version twice. I got it for my sister when she was dying.
Learn it. Imbibe it.
Looks like I should have read the reader reviews before getting this book. The premise is interesting but the underlying philosophy is self-involved and irresponsible.
Interesting content with original thought. It provides a great overview of the present economic situation and I'm glad someone is putting so much thought and research into the topic. However, the writing style is very redundant and surprisingly immature - the abridged version may be preferable.
Though I understand why it is done, the use of accents by the narrator is annoying at best.
