I saw some very negative reviews and was almost about to pass this one up; however, I'm glad I gave it a shot as the story is creative and could evolve into a great epic.
You can't judge a book by its cover or by the reviews of other audible listeners' reviews!
title says it all, there are long pauses between random words that damage an otherwise great book.
I don't return many books but this one is going back. I read the many reviews stating how this book started off slow but then turned awesome, frankly I was sadly disappointed with how boring it was from start to finish.
many other people have been saying that this is like a book in the wheel of time series, and I have to agree in part. however it stands on its own as a great story with good characters and plot twists that for the most part were unexpected.
I cannot wait for book 2 and wish that it didn't have "trilogy " in the title as I could listen to many more books like this.
I normally do not like books with musical intros or final closing songs; however this book really dragged me into the story and at the end when that beautiful voice sang the forbidden accompanied with that drum...wow it gave me goose bumps all up and down my arms.
This is a great book and a lot happened in its pages, however I am unsure as to whether the author can complete everything within the next two books as everything I've read indicates that it will be a Trilogy.
Two blind men waited at the end of an era, contemplating the beauty of a good book...
I could not help myself....
I love this book and I hated it but I imagine it was necessary... I hated the main male Kaladin's moral failings that were a large part of the plot of this book. It felt like such a large recycling of the first book and if this trend continues in the 3rd book I may stop reading.
Probably not I'm an Audible Addict.
I highly recommend these books (1&2&WOT) I love how well Michael Kramer and Kate Reading work together and hope that they can continue on through the whole cycle....Brandon Sanderson better write faster and stop with his 15 other side projects of they may retire before he completes the last book.
Sad that Orson Scot Card didn't finish the book in a single go, and didn't feel like part one did enough to be a good stand alone book in its own right. Perhaps it would have been better without as many characters, most have hardly any ties to the enders game novel.
A great story lies hidden within this book; however, it is diminished by all the long winded introductions and explanations on histories of Napoleon, Paris Sewers, Barricade Warfare....etc....etc....etc...
While I hate reading and/or listening to abridged copies of books, this one needs about 3-4 hours of material removed to keep the story flowing better.
I can't wait for the movie hopefully Hollywood does it justice.
I have read this book 4 times and the complete series 3 times. It's an epic journey and the fact that it took Stephen King so long to complete the series makes it even better. RE-reading this after completing the rest of the series you can gain an even better appreciation of just how deep the story is.
The coming of age.
I love Mr Guidall's voice he gives all the characters so much personality.
The man in black... Of course! I He knows how to have a good time.
Looking forward to the next book that Stephen King is adding to the series.
Story was 50 hours of worthless trash that probably could have been written in 20 and been a better book.
AND FOR 2 CREDITS IT’S A RIPOFF!!!!! I WANT 1 OF MY CREDITS BACK.
Honestly if I had known that the series were to the crap like this I’d have never have picked up his 1st book.
