Story was written for kids with little consideration for adult readers and listeners.
I expected a story worthy of the Spider-Man brand. Instead I got a rushed story tailored for children.
The narraration was fine. Kept the reader engaged.
This story would not translate to the big sdcreen. Feels more like a cartoon than a two hour movie.
I was so afraid that Brandon Sanderson would stop writing this series after taking on, and doing a magnificent job, the completion of the Wheel of Time after Robert Jordan's unfortunately passing but he came through! I must have listened to The Way of King's 6 times, wishing for a second book to answer some of the questions and tie together the loose ends. While this book doesn't completely do that it definitely forwards my beloved characters and continues to build the story. This book was AMAZING - I just hope he doesn't keep us waiting as long for the third! I want more of Caladon, Yezna, Shalon, Dalanar and the rest! I want to know what happened on the Day of Requeince, who all become new Knights Radiant and which of the characters are the Heralds that have walked the world for the last 4500 years! Please, Brandon, don't make us wait too long!!!!!!
I am a Pernese at heart and any time I get to visit my fantasy world is a treat! Anne has created a world for me to escape to and characters that feel like family! While I listen I talk to the characters that I know so well and feel their hopes as well as their fears. It's a place that will never be and will always be and I love every moment of it - especially the 9th pass where Robinton rules from behind F'lar and Lessa and the characters are so real! If you've ever loved dragons this is a series for you, where they are friends and companions and saviors not beasts!
Awesome backstory about Logain and his relationship with King Maren! And it really give you a feel for King Maren which you don't get in the game!
Great backstory for any that have played the game Mass Effect! Really explains a lot about Saren and what drives him and how things got to where they are in the first Mass Effect.
I have long been a fan of Stephen King, from the first book I read, Firestarter, collecting his books in hard copy for my library. His have always been books that take patience to begin as he builds his characters and sets the foundation for a fabulous plot but this one seemed to be lacking his usual flair. It was interesting and he did a nice job of continuing the story from the shining but it just didn't have the "umph" that his earlier books did.
This was a wonderful story, in the way of Dean Koontz, a little creepy, a little horrible, and a lot surprising! He is a master of pulling together multiple stories and vanquishing evil! But who would have thought of holes in reality?
I fell in love with the Drizzt series with the first series of books and enjoyed them tremendously for the first 5-6 books but then it started to become stale, but this was a great start to a fresh batch of Drizzt novels!
Another great story from Mr. Koontz, interesting twists and unexpected turns with an undercurrent of sadness and loneliness triumphing over the evil deeds of evil men with a little supernatural help!
Yes, and I have! This was a great way to continue the allamancer concept when we thought all had ended with Vin and Elend!
Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are two of my most favorite narrators - Mr. Kramer has a fabulous talent for changing personalities with nothing but his voice!
As with so many of his books, it has so much going on that I learn something more of the story with each listen!
There is no way I can rank this among all the audiobooks I have listened to, there are just too many. What happened to just being able to type my own review rather than being limited to answering questions?
I listened to the other WhoDunnit, now if we could only find the middle one!
