Steelheart was a first for me in many ways. It was my first book on audible and my first exposure to Brandon Sanderson. In many ways it was a good gateway into both of those. Macleod Andrews does an excellent job making "Steelheart" come to life. His performance of David is sincere and the humor within the prose is well delivered. He uses distinct voices for many of the characters. His feminine character voices tend to be flatter however. Many of strengths and weaknesses of Sanderson are apparent. Sanderson crafts a world that is both intriguing and mysterious. The reader is often lead to develop their own conclusions. The work finds a place in the imagination of the reader and stay with them long after they have completed the work. However, predictable plot and weak, flat dialogue often removed me from the reading experience. In conclusion, "Steelheart" is good, simple fun that does need to be analyzed to be enjoyed.
