I enjoyed this book a lot despite the terrible Narrater she sounded extremely flat and uninterested throughout lacking in emotion.

Entertaining as always

I am normally not a fan of biographies however this is the exception that proves the rule. The book is expertly written and narrated. It is obvious that Mr Isaacson is not only devoted to telling Jobs's story in full detail but also not to miss out the more unsavoury and unusual event of his life. The content just proves the old theory that genius is not far from madness. Job's early life was filled with mistakes and unusual decisions which in the end leads to his unique and inventive view on the world and his development into the true genius he was.

Nothing really new but still good

This book takes place in a pretty average world run mainly by overzealous priests. The protagonist is well developed and his "magic" is not particularly unique to the world of fantasy books but the way it is presented as music is a nice way of looking at it. The relationships and romance between the characters is very well developed and there is a nice mix of action, adventure, romance, discovery and despair throughout the book. Narration is good.

Another amazing book from Brandon Sanderson

I honestly am beginning to believe Mr Sanderson must live on a different world most of the time as he is able to create so many different and intricate new universes. Well this one is no exception; the world has a whole wealth of interesting features and mechanics. Most interestingly is the ethereal storm light and high storms yet another unique power Mr Sanderson has created. The story itself is an epic with many different characters with multiple different story lines in different places and time. This book is much bigger than the Mistborn trilogy with much more scope it has a little of the feel of Robert Jordan about it. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are amazing as always.

A nice addition and development of the series

This book is a clever idea in concept as it allows Mr Sanderson to further explore the amazing mistborn universe. The story takes place many years later and the world is almost completely changed from the original series. The powers have changed and developed showing a whole new world of possibilities. The characters are great and the story itself has got some good twists and turns and leaves the end open to a second book which would be great to see.

Interesting new ideas

Brandon Sanderson lives up to his illustrious reputation as a fantasy writer with this book. It contains an intricate new world with interesting features and complex politics. The characters are well developed and their unique abilities are a first for me having never heard of anything similar in other fantasy, it has its own laws , advantages and disadvantages and makes a nice change to just "Magic". The narrator is also very good.

Oh Nooo It's all over :(

I cannot believe it’s all over I have invested a massive amount of time over a week of my life listening to this series for it all to end well after 14 books and the death of its original author it was ready to come to a close. I must take my hat off to Brandon Sanderson he pulled it out of the bag bringing one of the longest fantasy series to and so well it must of been hell with soooo many characters stories to tie up. All in all it is an exhilarating and tense read and as always fantastically read by Michael Kramer, Kate Reading.
