I have listened to it twice. It is a wealth of information told in an interesting way.
For a book about plants, he makes it seem like a beautiful fairy tail. He makes the words interesting and adds humor that is believable.
Some of the history is amazing, however it was the authors tail of the cop and the marajuna behind the shed that had me rolling with laughter. I have actually told that story to many friends and all have found it just as hysterical. .
The first little bit may seem tedious. But every new story kept me interested. I listened to it when I went for walks and found myself enjoying nature even more because of it.
The first books can be a little confusing but by this one you know every character and are completely consumed by their actions. The only tough part is wanting to know what everyone is doing at all times because you love all of them equally and having to wait.
For the first half of the book we are shown an amazing world with a creative magic system and interesting characters. You spend most of that wondering if our main character really is a good guy or a bad guy. Then the angel comes in and its whining and wishing and longing to be together but stay apart. "I love you but I don't know why and I shouldn't". This alone is not enough to hate the book but for the entire second half nothing really happens and majority of the time it is just them boringly talking about how they want to be together...but cant.
The world really had me captured but unfortunately this author is nowhere near a romance writer.
Yes. The author gives great value to the text and makes me feel like someone is having a conversation with me.
Listen to it. You will not regret it.
It seems as soon as they came into the real world all interesting things ceased to exist. I loved the golden compass. This is sooooooo boring.
The narrators are the two most impressive you will ever find. The characters are deep and believable. The author makes nothing simple and uses true art for each scene. Did I mention the magic system is creative and follows rules which never are altered for convenience.
There is a scene where kelseir must decide between honor and freedom and listening to it gives me chills every time. I've never been do moved in my life.
Kate reading is the reason I listen to audio books. I fell in love with her in the codex alera series and will listen to her read the ingredients on the back of bubble gum if I could.
A storm is coming. Can a world at war unite in time to save it?
I know some of you look at this book and are dismayed by the 45 hours. But there is a reason it is that long and that's because Brandon Sanderson knows what he's doing. There is never a dull moment or a scene where it feels like he's just trying to transition. It may seem slow at first but they passes very quickly and you can't help but root for everyone even the ones you know are bad people. That's the mark of a gifted writer.
Also, if you don't know Brandon Sanderson pick up the must born trilogy and read immediately.
I have read and listened to this book a total of 4 times. It doesn't get old and there is something more to love each time.
I wouldn't dare spoil a second of this book for anyone. Buy it, listen closely.
I cried and laughed. I've never cared so much about a character since Harry potter. This of course, is a far more complex boom with a brilliant magic system which is barely touched upon until the second book. That's how good it is.
This is how assassin tales should be told.
I have listened to it twice. The first time I was confused on the storyline until almost the end, so the second time I really enjoyed it.
No. At least not the first time.
It was annoying at first since I thought two different characters were the same people just in different time. Once I figured it out the story, the magic system, the characters were all so impressive that I'd strongly suggest listening to this book.
No. I just don't like stories with rape.
They did make the movie. It is fairly close to the book and it is much more subtle.
I listened to it all. It was very funny but I didn't enjoy reading all the rape and attempted rape. The main character was fascinating and her male counterpart really made it worth finishing.
I didn't finish this book because I did not like the detailed murder. What I did listen to was spectacular and super interesting. If you can stomachs strong violence then read this, the author and narrator are amazing.
Interesting, relative, re-readable
The botany of desire. Stay with me here, they are not necessarily on the same page since this one is more like a q and a while the other is a look into various plants but they both promptly explain how the things they're talking about apply directly to me.
I loved his voice. He, perhaps because of the context, made me feel as if a very patient professor was explaining the foods I ate and why they were so fascinating.
I did laugh quite a few times. I'm not sure if it was the author or the narrator but some of the lines just made me giggle. I honestly loved this book and I never expected to.
It has great value. I love knowing why my sugar s different, why we don't have to shake milk before drinking it, how " less sodium" salt can be chemically possible, and that food is not something we should pass of as being tedious.
