I read the reviews and I bought the book anyway. I know its hard, but my advice is don't bother. Save the credit and remember the series well.
I love these characters and I love Amanda Ronconi. I wanted more. It is not a complete story. I am really hoping the next book will be a Gigi story.
I was really looking forward to this book but perhaps I am not the right audience. I have been listening to audio books for 20 years or more and I can't remember a book that put me to sleep as reliably as this one. I will not comment on the book as a whole because I am not sure I heard it all. The best thing I can say about A History of the World in 6 Glasses is I kept turning on the book. It could not have been all bad.
This book made me like the ending of the original 3 better. I like the idea of this world and I like the author's style. Michael Kramer is great I just wish he had done all Brandon Sanderson's books. It is an easy listen and I highly recommend it if you liked the first 3 mistborn books. You would probably be better off listening to the beginning of the series first. This books stands alone pretty well but there is so much detail in the first three about the world that might make this book a richer experience.
My issue with this book was that I didn't like any of the characters, which is a problem for a character/ family dynamic driven book. I just honestly didn't care what happened to the characters. I expected something a little more quirky and a little less whinny.
First let me say I am biased because I really like Brandon Sanderson's books and have read/listened to them all. What I really liked about this one was that it is self contained fantasy novel and it was interesting and fast moving from the very beginning. I liked the characters and the story.
The style of the narration was entertaining. The first part was annoying and I almost turned it off but once you got to part two the story really started to flow.
It is creative and I really like the plot devices used.
I think the tempo was a little slow
honestly I listed to it in double time.
