The only other book from Brandon Sanderson I've read was Elantris, and it was amazing. Compared to that, and maybe some of his other works, this may be too "young" for some adults, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have found lately that a majority of YA books tend to be super predictable, with blatant foreshadowing, and I need to remember to avoid them. This book (so far) hasn't fallen into that category. It seems as though we're going through a super heroes phase (as opposed to vampires/werewolves) as of late, and if you're enjoying it, this is an excellent take that's refreshing and unique. It may be a bit less complex and "adult", but it certainly isn't juvenile.
I would because it takes me to a world far different from my own. Being set in London and in a different era brings a charm that I can't resist.
He has done such a fantastic job that I could follow the characters before it said who was speaking. I honestly kept forgetting that it was one man doing all the voices. Fantastic!! I can't emphasize enough how much I enjoyed listening to him. His accents for the different characters from Wales, USA, or the different areas in England were all clear and concise. Such a fantastic job, I'd listen to him reading the phone book for hours on end if I could.
