    • If you are wondering whether to buy this book or not, the answer is an emphatic YES!Great plot and pacing. Excellent, believable character development. Vivid and exciting action scenes.BranSan's stories are so good because as you read you don't even realize you're reading a book. You're right there in the world fighting for, cheering for, and even weeping for the characters as if they're real people. "People need stories, child. They bring us hope, and that hope is real. If that's the case, then what does it matter whether the people in them actually lived?" <-- BranSan's stories bring me hope and light, and they inspire me to stretch and grow and become something better.
    • It's Brandon Sanderson! What more is there to say!!Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾
    • What. A. Ride.This is what YA literature should be. Skyward is deeply meaningful and deals with the pains of growing up in a well-written, beautifully conceived and executed story. Spensa goes through everything we do, but magnified a thousand fold by her situation. A masterful piece of literature and a thrilling story. I eagerly wait for Starsight in fall 2019.This book is a must read for young adults and anyone who enjoys, or wants to read, an excellent growing up story.Sanderson has created a hero’s journey in which the hero, the mentor, and the companions are all more human and more relatable than ever before, they speak to our darkest fears and our deepest dreams. In so many ways this story has asked, what does it really mean to be a hero, and each character has a different, equally meaningful answer.Read it for yourself, and Claim the Stars.
    • I give this book 4 stars because like most of his books Sanderson does a great job creating relatable characters. It reminded me a lot of Enders Game by Orson Scott Card. Probably one of my favorite sci fi books.
    • This book is an incredible disappointment. Talk about completely unoriginal world, story, characters, everything. This book is Enders Game meets Divergent meets City of Ember. Not to mention the countless other works in this genre that this novel mirrors. I don’t mind using same storylines but this added nothing new. It was the same story but with different character names. At about one third of the way through I lost hope that this novel was going to add any original ideas and unfortunately it held true to the end. I’m burned out on Sanderson. Oathbringer was trash and now this one is too. I have loved almost everything Sanderson has written but his latest few have fell flat. Sanderson needs to add some diffferent perspectives to his team as they are allowing subpar work to be published. Sanderson is phenomenal at unique world building and having a fun twist - I felt like I read Skyward before and that was disappointing.
