I stumbled upon Sanderson about 6 months ago when I wanted to read a book with a color-based magic system, I'm an aspiring fantasy writer and I checked it out. I had no idea Sanderson was capable of this. Truly the best fantasy book I have ever read. I've read many.

Sanderson was an accidental discovery. I thought I'd dislike the dark setting, Butni grinded through this series in 3 weeks. The author always keeps you guessing no matter how hard I tried to predict things. Going to love reading more of his series.

This course is a great primer for the middle ages, but there is always more to read. Although I loved the professor, I had one criticism, and that was that he had a bit of a bias against men. Which may seem strange, but very common amongst the professor-types. Although I felt women were under-spoken of, as throughout every period women have a strong influence on society, they were sparingly mentioned, and the professor gave some very strange interpretations of works of poetry and writing from time periods as evidence of an ill-will against women, though I think this was mostly due to a lack of study in symbolism, and pretty easily amended through independent research. Although the welcoming to criticism made me give the course an extra star. The professor is a man, after all, and we're all free to our own opinions, I just find opinions to be a bit odious without first mentioning that something like that was just his personal interpretation, etc.

As a millennial, I say we are overdue for the awareness that government is the biggest threat to all people's prosperity. There's no end to the nation-state in sight, but we can preserve, and improve on the good and bad aspects of the prosperous system we were given.

This convinced me to go back after college and not just pile through the stories, but investigate, and understand the Arthurian legends from a symbolic perspective. And one of the first female voices I've enjoyed listening to btw, and shes not even British lol.

Books and authors like these saved me from a great deal of nihilism, fathomless confusion, and purposelessness. I was a complete stereotype, now, I hardly spend a moment not doing something meaningful using the techniques hinted at in this book. This is a great primer for any lost souls in the younger gens who barely have a hint at how wrong our worldview is.

It is our responsibility as human beings to sense the proper moments in our lives to lead and follow. It is Western Civilizations greatest achievement that in the deepest dark, we find our hero, our geniuses to pull us ever closer to a greater and fairer world, step by step. This book is a pivotal manual for all those who may one day need to lead, which is all of us.

Gods, I pray so. This book, from the perspective of a classical liberal, is helping me to see where we are failing in politics. I hope I can get my leftist friends to read it.

Professor's from Berkley. It's not a condemning reason, but the natural suspicion made me keep a wary eye out and low and behold, a bit of bias appears here and there. Some added focus on subjects to cure modern "racism", despite that the simple facts outlght to make anyone realize Greek thought isn't connected to race, nonetheless, I would suggest it. Just be cautious and attentive for bias.

Very few books leave such a rigorous impact. A story is as good as it's ending. A must read on that account. Wonderful voice acting.
