Wow! What incredible writing for a first book!! This is Sanderson quality of writing. Spectacular character development and builds a perfect platform for a series. My only disappointment is that the next book is not out yet!
Such an amazing account, very real and so good hearing his wife's experience of him leaving on each tour and through the birth of their children.
I know it is vulgar to swear in a review, but how else do you describe an author who is fast becoming a master (also I am Aussie..). I have loved Sanderson form Elantris & Mistborn through to WOT. He has definitely taken allot of character development from WOT and created a new masterpiece.
I love the Kramer & Reading narrator combination, so many flash backs to WOT. I must admit I had a moment when I first hear Kate's voice as she spoke the final words of one of my favourite characters of all time in WOT (not giving anything else away!).
In a nut shell, Sanderson is awesome & I cannot get enough of his work and you would be crazy to miss out on depth and colour of this story.
This book had me hooked, I love the concept, Zombies & Super Heroes!
The first book was not as refined, but Peter is definitely communicating his story much more eloquently now!
This book is exceptional, it covers topics that most gay and straight couples just don't talk about! As a Dad to be in a gay relationship, finally this is a book that can at least let me know that everyone has great days and days where you are utterly embarrassed! Loved it. Thanks so much for sharing your journey!!
If Harry Dresden was there, this would have been resolved in half the time and with much better Humour!!!
Compared to all his other books, not his best. Or maybe his writing has not evolved from DC. The story was roughly fast paced, but you do wonder at times, why an art professor is saving the world with the support or multinational government agencies... Didn't like the ending...
I held off on this book for a few months after I finished Cold Days to make the wait to the next instalment not as painful. I have to admit that this book gives you such a good insight into some of the other characters in the book, especially the last story. Builds the appreciation for Harry!! Now the wait until the next instalment... Hurry up Jim!!!!
Fantastic and nothing like what I expected, the series just develops and the third book is great and sad that the series ended. Such a nice change having a book set in the 30's. Really cool, the history, characters and events are all woven through masterfully.
Cannot recommend this book enough, really good overview and the most enjoyable part was the fast pace, the vision of the future & the history of other political climates. Really awesome!
I would, book 1 is just OK... Book 2 gets much better but Volume 3 (the third audio book in the series) is actually really good. Hang in there! :)
