Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 1 ★★★★

Brandon Sanderson frequently comments that he intended Warbreaker and Elantris to dovetail: examining the same issues but dealing with them differently. I read Warbreaker with his intent in mind, and think it does indeed go well with the story-line of Elantris. It is an earlier work of Sanderson’s (pre Mistborn), so…

The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

Reviews 0 ★★★

This review contains spoilers. You have been warned. This book both surprised and disappointed me. I’m stil not sure how I feel about it, but when reading The Wise Man’s Fear I got the impression that Patrick Rothfuss took all these wonderful ideas about how he is going to change…

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Reviews 0 ★★★★

A long synopsis that doesn’t do justice to the book. The Name of the Wind is a unique novel, a triumphant debut from a hither-to unknown author. The level of mastery the author has displayed is rarely found in a debut novel, and in this light, I like the novel…

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Brandon Sanderson never fails to deliver on amazing world building and I was, as usual, astounded by the level of detail he puts into his writing. Everything, including the speech, mannerisms and military styles of the kingdoms is meticulously described and self consistent. The world is rich in detail –…

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Reading Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy spurred me to read his earlier works. Elantris is his debut novel (released in 2005), and I found it to be every bit as engaging and wonderful as I expected. High Priest Hrathen of Shu Derethi, the militaristic religion underlying the power of Fjorden, is…
