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.

    "Original story"

    Narrator is excellent. The story take many unexpected twists. If you like Brandon sandersons other books you'll like this one.

    Story
    "Worst. Sic-Fi. Ever."
    What was most disappointing about Brandon Sanderson’s story?

    I didn't get to listen to this until a couple months after I bought it, so I couldn't return it, but I have not ever purchased an audible book I disliked more. It seemed to be a grab of the young adult story City of Ember which was much better.

    "Couldn't turn it off"

    I kept finding things to do just to listen. A story filled with fabulous characters, intrigue, and a nonstop enjoyment.

    "Ended Well"

    A interesting story. Long, but in the end enjoyable. The cliff hangers were a bit much and probably not needed

    Story
    "Pretty good. Must read for Brandon Sanderson fans"

    This is his first published novel. That being said it is good. I always appreciate Brandon's inventiveness in the methods of magic. It is worth a listen but do not expect the quality of the Mistborn or Stormlight Archives series. The production quality is so so. The audible chapter splits and actual chapter splits are not in sync. The narration is passable.

    "Good play"

    The man narrating doesn't really fit the story of characters, but does a good job for the most part

    Story
    "This is juvenile fiction, not typical Sanderson"
    What would have made Elantris better?

    Many things. The dialog and character interaction is downright painful in its simplicity, as well as completely unbelievable. Only the main characters seem to have any sense of intelligence whatsoever, which makes it pretty easy for them to maneuver the story in whatever way suits them best. Also, it is very slow developing and boring.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something better! I'm thinking maybe I'll give The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington a try.


    What didn’t you like about Jack Garrett’s performance?

    I can't blame Jack Garrett for the terrible dialog. However, his female voices could use some more effort.


    What character would you cut from Elantris?

    Where to start...? Most of them, as this work is trash. How about the two main characters who are consistently phony. Couldn't hurt.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste time or money on this title. I'm a big fan of all the other Sanderson works I've read (Mistborn series, Wheel of Time wrap-up, Stormlight Archive books 1-2, and Reckoners books 1-2) for the record. This title should be labeled as juvenile fiction so that it doesn't ruin Sanderson's reputation.

    "Read this before his other work"

    It's long and slow in bits but it's still a good story. Not as captivating though as his other series.

    Story
    "Aidos Dolmai!"

    The story was pretty good. Some characters really well defined but others seem to lack depth. Definitely held my attention though. I listened to the end. The narration was a bit underwhelming, but I don't know if I could've done any better. Definitely worth the random stray credit.
