The Feels!

The mother of all plot twist! I did not see any of that coming. The ending was kind of sad but still satisfying and happy. A perfect ending to an AWESOME trilogy.

Loved this from book 1

What made the experience of listening to The Hero of Ages the most enjoyable?

You understand exacly what the writer was trying to tell you. Very good!

What did you like best about this story?

When Vin and Ellend realised that they loved each other.

What does Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Explaining all the fascinating combination of the metals and what it could do for the mistborn I would not have had the patience to read the book myself.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes the ending. I will not say more...........

Any additional comments?

Very good listening material from book 1

The ages untangled

It's a perfect finish to the trilogy, keeping the pace of the other books, yet revealing so much more about the world, before coming to a phenomenal end.

My new favorite series

Michael Kramer is an absolutely awesome narrator and Brandon Sanderson may have just become my favorite writer. This series is great.

Amazing

If you could sum up The Hero of Ages in three words, what would they be?

Tantalizing, manipulating, unexpected

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I tried my hardest, Sanderson knows how to keep things interesting from one minute to the next. you have to really pay attention to what all his little clues that are there.

Any additional comments?

I love how well he has planned his books, how well all three of his books are able to tie in so well. my advice is do not google any information, if you do then it will ruin the books, even something as simple as alomantic metals. enstead ask a friend who has read them before or make a list of them.

if you dont google it then you will be surprized on what Sanderson has done at every twist in the book.
