I didn't know quite what to expect with this book. But I found Feynman's life to be quite inspiring, and hilarious every step of the way. I didn't know his name before, but he's an instant idol of mine.
A different style than Brandon Sanderson's other books, but in no way does that make it less fantastic.
The story brings a whole new world to color which is fantastic to learn about. As a color-blind man... does that make me of the 1/2 heightening?
I kept hoping the book would stumble across a decent plot line, but it never did. It was fairly boring, I kept saying, "I bet this will happen. Wow, it did, how unimpressive." There didn't seem to be any rules guiding the universe, people sometimes could do powerful things, and sometimes not, depending on the author's needs.
The worst part is that with a world full of these powerful *furies* that can change the fate of nations, people still run around with swords and simply hack at each other. There are instances where the furies are used with astounding skill, and other times where a fury-crafter pretends to not be able to use them. One fury crafter using half his brain can conquer armies, but they rarely do.
But don't worry, even when people get *killed* they'll be okay in the end.
This book in and of itself is a wonderful read. Be warned though that if you get started on this one you may not be able to put the next 11 of them down. The series is long, and can take time to bring the plot around, but the series starts with a bang!
I read this as a precursor to watching the play. I was a little skeptical to begin with due to it's length. In the end I was extremely pleased by the book. It gave huge insights into the story that I loved (from the play and the movie). Having read the book, I would claim this is one of the most beautiful stories of all time.
It told a really unique story, and did a great job at it. I kept wondering the entire book how it was going to end. And unlike others, I'm glad it doesn't have a sequel. It's a story to encapsulate into a single book.
This book takes so many of the loose ends and starts bringing them together. It's amazing to see all of the different climaxes. I got into this one more than any of the rest so far. I kept saying to myself "Oh no!", "No!", and yet each piece couldn't have been more perfect.
I absolutely loved this book. I didn't know quite what to expect, but I was very glad I read it.
I thoroughly enjoy Michael Kramer as a narrator. This book is a must have.
