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.

    "Great epic!"

    Enjoyed this one. Story was a bit slow but very different and worth the runs.

    "entertaining"

    thw book was entertaining, easy to listen to... dragged a little in the middle and everything happened just how you would expect or imagine. the parts of the story following reodin were much more entertaining than the rest.

    "Great beginning and end"

    Not as good as Sanderson's other works, but still interesting and captivating at times. Interesting and creative premise.
    Performance was solid.

    Story
    "Going to submit for return."

    Let me state that I am not new to this genre nor the authors work. I am unhappy with this novel because there is not enough development or narration by the author or actor for me to discern the characters that get thrown at you in the first 4 hours.

    Sanderson delivers another fantastic world of magic and heroes!
    This is another that could be expanded on.

    "great story, maybe narrated by an Alan Alda clone"

    The story of Elantris was a good one. I struggled the entire time with how much the narrator sounded like Alan Alda to the point of distraction.

    "Great story"

    So it took a while for me to get into the book. But once I was into it I could not put it down.

    "Okay..."

    The pace was... chaotic. But okay. My biggest issue was the beginning. Overload of Information.
