  • Skyward, Brandon Sanderson (M, 20s, curly hair, faux fur-lined jacket, backpack at feet, no book jacket, R train)
  • @Ameobea10 The other one was "skyward" by Sanderson. I trust this one more, Final Empire was a good book

    • A compelling and distinctive story about overcoming ourselves, our family legacy and discovering who we really are. Well written and engaging.
    • So I discovered Brandon Sanderson when he was selected to finish the Wheel of Time. I figured, while I wait, why not see what else he’s done? That led me to Mistborn, then Elantris, Warbreaker, and then literally everything he writes. I’m hooked, and the only thing I wish I could do differently is slow down and savor it. Instead I read Skyward in a day and a half and will have to settle for 3 re reads before the sequel comes out. You’ve seen the other reviews, they all nailed it. World building is amazing, the pacing is great, plots are just unpredictable enough to make you enjoy it. This man can write, and so I’ll keep reading. Over and over and over. Thank you for another blast.
    • This book is incredible! Sanderson's style shines in this entertaining, quirky novel! The pacing is fantastic, there is not a single boring scene or chapter. Still I rate it a 4/5. Why,? Well really it depends on what your looking for. The book is easily 5/5 for entertainment, and a rip roaring adventure novel. It succeeds in every way there. However, the emotion- while not lacking- wasn't as strong as other books may have. So if your looking for an emotional experience, I'd give it a solid 4/5. Either way I believe this book is definitely worth your time.
    • switched between reading on kindle and listening on audible. finished in one day, I wish i had read slower so I could relish in it longer, hopefully sanderson writes a sequel. the narration on audiobook was very good as well
    • Where to start? What would the Saint say...? I can't quite put my finger down on why I love this book, perhaps it was the diverse cast of characters, the beautiful and engaging world, or maybe the masterful story telling. While I had suspicions about how the story would end, it remained unpredictable (for me) and engaging almost every second. I loved how various characters developed. No character was completely one sided, each was given a greater depth that couldn't be seen right away, but in a way was always there.
