"...readers won't want to put it down." (Publishers Weekly)
"Outstanding." (Publisher's Weekly)
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!
I thought it would be a simple fantasy but it's dimensions surprised me! I wish there was a sequel.
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!
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.
Audible - bringing sanity, mystery, discovery and joy to my commute since 2014.
A interesting story. Long, but in the end enjoyable. The cliff hangers were a bit much and probably not needed
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.
