Listening to this is like I suspect it would have been to listen at the feet of CS Lewis. Excellent and insightful in every respect. If you like Mr. Lewis, you will love this collection of letters, comments, personal talks, etc that he gave. Amazing mind!
Words of the Radiance was almost as captivating as The Way of Kings. That was a tough act to follow. These characters become a part of life and dreams. I have listened to Way of Kings 6 or more times. I will eventually listen to Words as much. Great series. If you miss this then assume you have never done fantasy.
Narnia by CS Lewis in an intrinsically brilliant way is comparable. Wheel of Time is comparable. The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King is very addictive and affects one's approach to life and reading. The Stormlight Archives does the same.The killer book of the series is still The Way of Kings. Sanderson needs to shift to a higher gear to produce book 3 el pronto.
These two are top shelf. Perhaps the best of the Best. If they read it I assume that there is quality by either their extraction or within the framework of their awesome performance addition. I have never been disappointed by either of these two. Great team.
Yes. If possible I would have listened in a day. I cheated as I listened at 1.5 speed on the iphone.
Sanderson is truly a great writer. Creative and engaging in the way characters seem to step into our world. Great portrayal of the struggle within the good and bad of any people group.
Learn aspects of why CSL had a nearness to God that may well expand into your experience as you see and hear his perspective on prayer's place in the life of the believer.
To my friends and enemies. Especially my enemies...
An intriguing account as to how CSL journeyed in life to the foot of the cross.
This is is excellent treatise of the Reformed Faith. I cannot imagine a clearer presentation of these most needed Biblical truths, expecially in our generation. Listen and live!
This is an addictive and intoxicating work by Sanderson that causes you to engage the characters and cheer them on from page to page. Of course, nearly anything that Michael Kramer and/or Kate Reading narrate is immediately placed to the top of my list. The only problem with this work is that you have to wait to see what Callidan and Zeke do in their eventual showdown. DON'T MISS THIS ONE! I listened almost NON-STOP.
Excellent work that overviews and in some respects is a condensation of "The Cross of Christ" which is his premier work. Both of these excellent books are work your time if you are a serious minded believer. At times each sentence is so overwhelming that you will literally have to stop the player to grasp the insight of this excellent man of God.
The writing style reminds me of what my 4th or 5th grade teacher encouraged(that's generous). The content is horrific. The assumptions are absurd. What a waste of trees to put such nonsense into print! What a waste of my time. I thought the entire book most elementary; and most notably, poorly written. How this book holds interest for a moderately informed individual concerning the general content still amazes me.
A most outstanding work. The history is extraordinary. The story is addictive. The reading by Scott Brick, (who is the best), is memorable. This one will keep you up nights, especially if you lived through the Nam era. This work is my very favorite of all contemporary books to date. This one is worthy of several "listens".
