Publisher's Summary

Legendary science fiction author Orson Scott Card calls Brandon Sanderson a writer to watch.

Once the godlike rulers of the capital of Arelon, the inhabitans of Elantris have been imprisoned within themselves, unable to die after the city's magic failed years ago. But when a new prince falls victim to the curse, he refuses to accept his fate.

    "Takes a while to get there, but when it does..."

    It is AWESOME! It was incredibly slow in the beginning, but--looking back--it was worth it. He built all the little situations that created the characters, the world, the setting, the slow crescendo that would shake the reader. Amazing!

    "Great!"

    Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors and Elantris did not disappoint. The story kept my attention throughout and I enjoyed reading about the many characters.

    Story
    "Good but not Mistborn"

    Story:
    Over all I thought the story was excellent. It comes in typical Sanderson fashion: well defined and unique magic system with lots of depth, layers of thoughtful mystery that is unfurled as the story progresses, exciting action scenes, and a complex love story. I thought that the beginning of the book was exhaustingly slow, and it wasn't until around chapter 20 that I found myself "hooked" and eagerly wanting to read more. Maybe he could have shortened those first 20 chapters into 5-8? Anyway, the later 2/3 of the book was great and was an enjoyable read/listen.

    Naration:
    I thought Jack Garrett did a great job, I just can't give him a 5 stars after having listened to several books done by Michael Kramer.....he's just not on Kramer's level. Also, I would have given 4 stars, but the way 50% of the chapters were put together was just atrocious. A chapter would begin literally milliseconds after the last words of the previous chapter completely killing any feeling or thoughtfulness of what had just happened in the previous chapter. At least give us a few seconds pause between chapters, jeez....

    "Slow Start, Worth Waiting"

    Mistborn was quite a bit better. But this is a solid, entertaining novel with an intriguing premise.

    Story
    "What a waste of time"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Got a real interesting plot line. Just no story line worth listening too.


    What was most disappointing about Brandon Sanderson’s story?

    Thinking you can just make up names and tack them on to a bad novel and call it science fiction.


    What does Jack Garrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Well read


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    bored


    Any additional comments?

    Been listening to this book for 20 hours now and can't stomach the thought of finishing it. . It seems they took a bad story and changed a few words to a science fiction theme. One of the worst books I have ever listened to.

    "great book"

    I liked it a lot. there were some slow parts but overall It kept things interesting from the 1st chapter to the end. some parts I loved and some I hated and some I found myself completely shocked which I think makes a book great. I hope another book is in the near future because I want more.

    "I would have never read this book"

    I hate to try and pronouns made up words so I would never have attempted to read this book. I'm glad I found it on audible because it was good. It took me out of my norm of reading/listening.
