My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It took me four tries to read this book, each previous attempt has ended maybe 50 pages in, eveyone said it’s a great book, I just could not push myself to read it. I am not a fantasy fan. I am especially not a great fan of high fantasy. The idea of learning tons of strange to pronouce names and new magic systems was just too much for me.
On the fourth try I told myself that I have to read at least 20% of the book before I quit it for the final time. Well it worked. I now finished this monster of a book (over 1000 pages!!!) and I can’t wait for more.
I loved this book, and now consider Brandon Sanderson to be one of my favourite authors. I love every character he creates, and the world they live in is fantastic. There is so much to discover here, so much mystery and strange ideas. I think I’m becoming a fan of this genre.
