Kralların Yolu (2014)
4.6 of 5 Votes: 3
Good story with interesting ideas. Main shortcoming is that it takes A LONG time for it to get going - if you can make it past the first 800 pages, the remaining 3 or 400 are rather enjoyable. The writing style is kind of choppy at times and the overuse of italics / emphases is kind of annoying. ...
The Way of Kings (2010)

Just like in Elantris, Sanderson builds a fantastically intricate universe and brings together an original, unexpected cast of characters in the Stormlight Archive. He has a light touch with scenic detail and can capture a unusual idea down on paper without slowly the plot. Odd elements of the st...

I will admit, this book did not end exactly as I hoped it would - but as I've thought about it after completing it, I realized that while the ending was not entirely satisfying, it was exactly what it should be. I'll explain.Sanderson exhibited a lot of brilliance in these books. From dealing w...
Words of Radiance (2014)
4.51 of 5 Votes: 3
Great continuation of the Stormlight archives. The addition of a bunch of new characters and the progression of existing ones leaves you with a lot to take in, so its ok if you read slower than a chull. The action and the immersion is wonderful and you won't be disappointed by the storyline. Has ...
The Alloy of Law (2011)

I was not impressed. Sanderson, what were you thinking? Ruining that perfect Mistborn trilogy with this miserable piece of western-fantasy? I might be out of line here, but Mistborn world should have been left intact. Suddenly, I'm not very eager to read the second trilogy. Characters are semi-de...
Steelheart (2013)
4.14 of 5 Votes: 2
This book is fantastic- exciting but not just action packed, it also had some mysteries that I did not see coming and asks some interesting moral questions about violence and defense and leadership. The voice of the main character reminded me of Alcatraz Smedry and there were occasional humorous ...
Alcatraz Versus the Knights of Crystallia (2009)
4.1 of 5 Votes: 3
I think the other two books in this series were my personal favorites and this one wasn't quite as good as the others. May be this is more of a 4.5 star book, but regardless this series is gearing up to be one of my favorite middle grade series ever! I adore Alcatraz, his grandfather, Bastille, a...
Mitosis (2013)
3.9 of 5 Votes: 5
Not very fleshed out -- I think Sanderson shines best in longer formats where he has more space to develop the world and the characters. Here the characters are more an amalgam of traits -- bad-metaphor spouting (getting old, sadly), food snobbery -- than real people. The way people react to li...
Mistborn Trilogy Boxed Set (2009)
4.55 of 5 Votes: 2
More a 3.5 rating but my issue isn't with the quality of the writing as it is good. The world Sanderson has created is unique and memorable. My issue is that over the years as life slaps you around I have become more cynical and I strongly believe the world exists in greys whereas in the main I f...

I NEED THE LAST BOOK. I'm just going to say that the ending is in keeping with the character of the series.
The Emperor's Soul (2012)
4.31 of 5 Votes: 2
4.5. This is my first Brandon Sanderson novella and, for me, this story and this idea work really well as a novella. I do kind of wish this had a bit more detail to it - maybe a better understanding of the connection Shai feels to the emperor as she's piecing together his soul/personality, or som...
Infinity Blade: Awakening (2011)
3.83 of 5 Votes: 3
So this is a Sanderson book which I really haven't heard much about before picking it up, although I did know that it was based around a video game. I am not a gamer and I have no intention of playing the game, but I wanted to give this a go anyway because of it being by Sanderson and I believed ...
Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener's Bones (2008)
4.1 of 5 Votes: 1
This is the second Alcatraz book. I liked it even better than the first. Alcatraz has to continue to fight the evil librarians who have manipulated all information to their advantage. This time he encounters them on a ship made of glass (shaped like a dragon) and later inside the underground L...
Sixth of the Dusk (2000)
4.2 of 5 Votes: 2
4.5, I think. The fact that Brandon Sanderson can write a world like this in under 100 pages is just amazing. I really hope there's a sequel to this - the only thing I really have to say is that the writing itself suffers a bit when condensed into something so short. It was a really fun, quick re...
Mistborn Trilogy (2009)
4.54 of 5 Votes: 1
Oh, wow. This is undoubtedly one of the very best series I have ever read. From the beginning I knew it was unusual. I thought I had seen Brandon Sanderson at his best in Rithmatist, but that was just playtime for him. This is a masterpiece. I had a few worries about the end being as spectacular ...
Mistborn Boxed Set. Brandon Sanderson (2009)
4.54 of 5 Votes: 5
This trilogy was the weakest of the Sanderson stuff that I've ready. Much of it is too complicated focusing on the metaphysical world he created. The story seemed to have suffered because of it. I also didn't see a lot of continuity between the books. The first book was a heist story but then...
The Mistborn Trilogy (2009)
4.54 of 5 Votes: 5
Brandon Sanderson creates a really intricate system of "magic". Its not really magic its more like physics but its the magic of this realm. The first book was my favorite (i think) because it read like heist movie (think ocean's 11, or the sting). The other books are good but lose some of that ch...
La Espada Infinita: El Despertar (2013)
3.83 of 5 Votes: 4
For a short story/novella this was unexpectedly fun. Although I should really say 'expectedly', as everything this author has done for some time now has been fairly gold. Normally I wouldn't read a story taken from a video game, but seeing as it was Sanderson I gave it a try, and I'm glad I did...

Great epic novel. Listened to it on CD. Couldn't have asked for a better fantasy book. So. Good.
Alcatraz und das Pergament des Todes (2008)
4.1 of 5 Votes: 3
This was one of the most amazing books I have ever read, rivaled only by book one of this series. that is really all I can say about this book. It was funny, clever, creative, and gripping all the time I was reading I was captivated by it. Then the author signed a book just for me even though the...

Wow.... Ich war ja nach dem Weg der Könige schon sehr angetan, aber auch hier wurde ich nun alles andere als enttäuscht. Der einzige Grund warum ich wieder keine 5 Sterne gegeben habe, aber klar mit 4,5 Sternen bewerte, ist die Tatsache, dass sich jedes von mir gelesene Buch mit Hyperion/Endymion...

Absolutely brilliant. Found Brandon Sanderson when he started working with Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, so glad I did. Finished part 1 and picked up part 2 straight away, couldn't put it down...roll on November when book 2 of the Stormlight Archives comes out :-) The Way of Kings release...
Legión y el alma del emperador (2014)

A great pair of shorter stories from Sanderson.Legion, about a man and his multiple hallucinated personalities, I thought was good fantasy fare. The characters were interesting and dynamic but as a short story could not be developed in quite the depth that the reader might have liked.The Emperor'...

This is a unique offering by Brandon Sanderson and three other writers of 4 short Stories/Novellas. It starts by giving you the final story to read and then you can read the four of them brainstorming ideas for taking a simple one paragraph idea and building it out into a full story. Then they sh...
Defending Elysium (2000)
4.16 of 5 Votes: 5
Decent Story, definitley not one of his best. Really in my opinion, the story is really a 2.5 or 3 star story, but after reading the story, and reading the title of the book. Did I understand the deeper meaning to the story and plot. And why it is called Defending Elysium.The Story begins when ...

We met Brandon Sanderson at a book reading/signing yesterday. Such fun! He seemed very nice and thoroughly excited about his creations. Younger than I'd expected and also very "normal" but fun. Most people were there for his other (adult fantasy) books and the majority of the Q&A revolved aro...
