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.

    "seemed to drag"

    this book has a good story but at times I wanted to fast forward like in a movie, you have invested your time this far and just want to see the ending.

    Myself a geeky engineer. I like in the following order, 1 - SciFi, 2 - Fantasy, 3 - Thrillers, 4 - Mysteries. My most most memorable book was "Dune" by Frank Herbert. My most thought provoking book, "On A Pale Horse" by Peirce Anthony.

    "A little predictable, but..."

    While it was a little predictable there was enough suspense that I kept coming back. The princess attitude is infectious.

    "Love Sanderson, hated this book."

    The story was slow and plodding. The characters were annoying. The readers inflections started to grate on me. I finished it hoping for some dramatic twist and was left very disappointed.

    Story
    "meh"

    Like other titles by Sanderson, this book is more about a cool magic system than character or plot development. That, combined with his penchant for making every single character he's ever invented prone to raising their eyebrows at a moments notice make this a c in my book. just not as engaging as it should be

    "Brilliant"

    The story is thrilling and genius, taking you through every turn and twist of the fairy tales - and then a few more you'd never expect!
    Totally wish I could visit Elantris for real!

    "Well thought out characters and a plot that absorbs you! Didn't want it to end!"

    I thought it would be a simple fantasy but it's dimensions surprised me! I wish there was a sequel.

    "Boss!"

    This was an incredibly exciting and enjoyable book. The characters were well fleshed out, the dialogue on spot and there was a lovely mixture of humor and action throughout. The exploration of the themes of religion and faith was well done, and mirrored real life.

    I really enjoyed this book. This was not my first Sanderson, and it definitely will not be my last. I look forward to more From this tremendously creative and talented writer. For those who haven't, please read 'The Way of Kings' and 'Words of Radiance'. Fantastic stuff!
