This is the start of something truly epic. Sanderson's sweeping novel doesn't really flare from page 1, but it certainly pays off by the last page. I'll be rereading this one again before the second volume arrives.
Contrary to the naysayers who have envisioned this book for 20+ years in their mind's eye, A Memory of Light is here and it brings an Ending to Jordan's saga--a tale that grew in the telling, as all would agree. And while the series has meandered through plot lines and characters, all converge for at the Last Battle at the ending of the Third Age--a conflict as expansive as one would expect from The Wheel of Time. Sanderson hit a pitch-perfect tone throughout, and Reading and Kramer provide their perfect narration, and as you listen to the last minutes of the series, I defy you not to be moved by the ending of this staggering and important series.
Cool, Cosmere, Steampunk
Both main characters are worthy additions to the Mistborn universe.
This book is rich with great scenes.
Not especially, this is more of a fun listen. A return to a known magic and a known universe.
I hope Sanderson writes more with these characters, there are some large open-ended questions on the table!
Every beautiful word. This book is amazing beyond compare in Star Wars literature.
Have you ever heard the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise? It's a Sith legend...
His brilliant voice, his intensity, I wish he could narrate everything.
yes. i'd listen to it every day if i could.
If you are a Star Wars fan, listen to this audiobook!
If you have already enjoyed the four Mistborn books and The Way of Kings, check this standalone novel out. I've not yet read Elantris so I'm not sure how it stacks up. Warbreaker is a truly inventive and unique fantasy book that dashes many common tropes.
Hmmm...I cannot say I can compare it to a similar book, but it has the feel of a Jim Henson script to me; something vivid, creative, wildly different.
James Yaegashi is not a good narrator. His narration sucks the life out of these characters and makes them caricatures. However, towards the end of the book I almost enjoyed his overwrought inflections.
Yes, if you are a fan of Brandon Sanderson you should certainly listen. Warbreaker is another part of his Cosmere.
