Read for Popsugar’s 2018 Reading Challenge #4: A Book Involving a Heist
I stand by my rating! This book is FANTASTIC but just not quite a 5-star read for me. I’m really glad that I took the time to read my physical copy this time around (I speed-read most of the book on audio the first time I read it) because I feel like I grasped the story way better. I feel sufficiently re-capped now so I can finally read book 2!
first read in 2014
So good oh my godddddd
It reminds me of Ocean’s Eleven meets The Italian Job, but set in Mordor after Sauron has ruled for 1000 years or so. In many fantasy stories, a dark lord is rising and it is up to our heroes to defeat him before that happens. In this, the Dark Lord is already set in place as the status quo and the heroes have to motivate others to want a change…..Yet there is a noble class of The Lord Ruler’s flunkies who will need to be scammed and robbed along the way, to finance this big revolt…..I love it…
The pace, style, and grand-heist-scheme-in-a-fantasy-setting plot remind me of Michael J. Sullivan‘s The Crown Conspiracy while the characters and rags-to-revolutionary story make me think of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Certainly a great blending, as both of these were recent 5-star reviews for me….
Okay, now I’ve finished it. All I can say is WOW. Why did I wait so long to read this? I must read the other two books in the series very soon…….
I gave it 5 stars the first time, I give it five stars again!
New edited review to come soon!
Yes it took me a while to finish this book, but university just takes so much out of you! But enough about me, let’s talk about this gorgeous piece of work right here! I love love loved this book, like as in simply adored! Kelsier broke my heart one too many time when he died, but it was the good kind of heartbreak. The kind that makes you hold you chest and go like “wow that is some powerful stuff right there”, and everything else that goes along with that. I do admit that at the beginning the use of allomancy tended to confuse me at times, but as the book progressed the believable conscripts made it like the most natural thing ever, like blinking per say. This book deserves every single one of those stars, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel. Elend and vin better get their happily ever after…….. Fingers crossed.
I am dead.
I bought this book in January after hearing so much hype around it and I attempted to read this book at least 10 times since then. I got about 20 pages in each time before I got intimidated and put it on hold. FINALLY, I decided to pick it back up again and push through and oh my god I wish I had read this book sooner. It was incredible. I honestly have no words to even describe this amazing book. Just wow. The hype was so worth it for this one and I cannot wait to see what is in store in the coming books.
This book guys, this damn book. Wow.
I actually loved every single character in this book?! I’m shocked. There’s always someone I don’t like as much as the rest but I LOVED THEM ALL. Kelsier. Vin. Elend. Sazed. Breeze. Ham. Marsh. Dox. Spook. All of them are precious angels and I want to love them all.
You can bet I’m going to the bookstore tomorrow buy every book Brandon Sanderson wrote because damn this book was amazing. Fantastic. Incredible. A+
