Holy moly, I finally finished this. It took me so long! Mainly because I was only reading it at work when I worked Fridays upstairs. Also because I felt I needed the proper headspace to get into the world. Because this world is rather intricate and transporting.

I made a joke at one point while reading this that the book really started to get interesting at page 800. It was a good book to that point, but after that I almost couldn't stop reading it! I really have enjoyed how deeply involved the story is. These aren't just characters they are real people with histories and secrets and lives that mean something. I'm amazed.

Now let's see how many months it takes me to read book two! ( )

I really really enjoy Sanderson's world building and this in particular. ( )

I was very intimidated to start this book. It's MASSIVE and it's fantasy, which is a genre that I sometimes struggle with (I usually prefer Sci-Fi and Time Travel). However, I really enjoyed the Reckoners series, and this book was so highly-rated that I felt I had to give it a shot.

I'm glad I did.

I did have a couple of issues with the book, although I suppose that this is more of a learning curve that I need to overcome for either this TYPE of book or this series in general. The first issue I had was that there were a couple of parts that seemed to drag a bit (although on hindsight, both Kaladin and Dalinar's arcs would not be as powerful without their respective backstories). The second was that there were characters that were introduced earlier in the book that were either not mentioned again, or not mentioned until much later.

But there is so much to like about this book, most specifically the world building that the author has achieved. Such a deep history and mythology, although it often felt like TOO much to take in all at once.

So now I'm stoked - looks like this is set to be a 10 volume series (YIKES!), but only 2 are out so far. On to the next one!

Audiobook notes - Overall, very good narration from the "Team" of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading. Both readers handled different characterizations very well. The only problem that I had was that there were a number of times where they pronounced words differently; the worst had to be:
Devotaries: DEV-oh-tarries vs de-VOTER -ees
Sadeas: SAD-ee-us vs sa-DEE-us ( )

I really enjoyed this! Interesting magic system, interesting moral themes both implicit and explicitly discussed -- it's not often you get to hear a discussion between an atheist and a theist in a fantasy novel! Sympathetic characters, especially Shallan and Kaladin, whose stories really stood out.

Nice graphic touch: Shallan is an artist, and the chapters told from her perspective have a facing page that looks like a page from her sketchbook, with drawings and handwritten notes. (I just wish her handwriting were a bit clearer and larger!) I don't usually care for art in my books, but this was very well done & enhanced the book.

I'll definitely be reading the next one. ( )

I finally finished this! And I liked it. This book did take me a while to get through, mostly because there were long stretches where I didn't touch this at all. While I was reading I did really like this and the ending definitely had me hooked.

This book has all the things that makes fantasy seem intimidating to me: it's very long, it had a lot of POVs, there a lot of world-building happening, and more. However, once I got into this story, I didn't find any of this to be that intimidating (except for how long this was, that never stopped being intimidating). This story was written in a way that was very engaging. Even though this book is over 1200 pages long, I can't recall many moments where I was bored by the book, which is pretty impressive. Even though I do think this book is a bit stretched out, I was surprised by how little fluff there seemed to be in this very long book.

I think of all the perspectives in this book, Kaladin's was the most cliche and most similar to other fantasy stories. It was very easy for me to predict where his story would go, which wasn't the case for some of the other perspectives. Nevertheless, Kaladin was one of my favorite characters. I think I liked him partially because he was the one lower class character we got a perspective from and this is a perspective I really appreciate in fantasy stories. But I also just kind of like really cliche fantasy stories. I think they're fun! I also thought his perspective embodied a character that has experienced a lot of dark things but is also a good person and I love that type of character.

Dalinar also became one of my favorite characters for similar reasons. He wasn't at the beginning but his actions at the end made me really like his character. I think the most interesting plot points will come from the outcome of his decisions and I'm excited to see that.

This is a pretty sprawling plot but in some ways this felt solely like set-up for the rest of the series. I recognized that some of this is necessary in the start of a long fantasy series and as I said, this set-up never bored me. I did find that sometimes I figured out plot points long before the characters figured it out in a way that was more frustrating than interesting. This was especially a problem with Kaladin but showed up in a couple of places. Another thing that was probably more a problem with me taking to so long to read this than a book issue but I would forget certain characters. Like I reached a part at the end and when it said who's perspective would be in that section I was like "wait, who's Navani?" Again, I recognize most of that is a me issue but was also in part because this book was very long in a way I found to be unnecessary sometimes.

I don't want to compare this to the other long fantasy book I've read, Game of Thrones, too much because they're actually not that similar but I will say when I finished Game of Thrones I had no curiosity about what would happen next. I had no desire to read book two. When I go to the end of this book I needed to know what happened next! The last third of this book was especially excellent. I was so engaged the entire time. This is especially impressive to me because there were battle scenes, which I usually find very boring and hard to follow but I found them very easy to follow here. I'm still very intimidated by the length of the books in this series but I know I want to continue.

Reading this has really been a journey and a long time coming. I am very happy I finally finished this because I liked the last bit so much. I think now that most of the set up is done the books are just going to just get more interesting. Hopefully it won't take me 3/4 of a year to read the next book. ( )
