"... readers won't want to put it down." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
"Outstanding." (Publisher's Weekly)
This book has an interesting plotline but it is simply too long. It drags in the middle and loses momentum. Still worth reading if you are able to persevere through the middle stretch to the end.
This book was good, up until the end. I'm not sure if the author just wanted to wrap it up, if there were space concerns, or if the author just got overly ambitious. But I was left feeling that what could have been a great ending was turned into an okay ending. But that said, the first 18 hours or so are wonderful!
Really enjoyed this book. Wished the author had more to choose from.
There are many plots within plots to this excellent book with an epic story takes place over a period of approximately 2 months. It starts out a bit slow how ever it develops into a tale with surprising plot twists and shifts that leave you and the characters wondering what will happen next. The narration is great and makes for rapt listening.
I found this book engrossing; I did not want to go to sleep so I almost listened to it straight through. It was one of those books that you are sad when the story is over.
A solid fantasy story with a few small holes. Near the end the book I got worried as to how it was all going to end but the author pulled it out well. I'll be reading the Mistborn books next.
Narration I found amazing, as well as the story. Highly recommended to the sci-fi/fantasy fan looking for a breath of fresh air.
The extremely poor narration performance kept me from finishing this book. I love Brandon Sanderson's stories, but this has been the ONLY book thus far that I've not been able to listen to all the way through.
Looks like I'll have to pick up a physical copy of this book if I ever want to read it.
Elantris is a unique and fun story, filled with great characters and situations... it is something entirely new in fantasy. I loved every minute and found myself wanting more when it ended. The narration was great, although I sometimes wish Mr. Garrett formulated different (non-American) accents for some characters.
