Hmmmm....not my favourite Sanderson.
Brilliant; ingenious, mesmerising, a masterpiece!
Definitely! It is simply a masterpiece that engages you from start to end. In the most imaginative way possible, the reader can identify with the common frailties of mankind/humans such as petulance, over-rationalisation; prejudicial judgement of others, deviousness, fear of the unknown, piety, credulity, vengefulness, naivety....
Lightsong's final realisation of his nature, worth and purpose.
I was apprehensive at first. But then his voice blended well for most of the characters. There were a bit too many silent breaks and the high quality of sound meant that I could hear what tended to be unnecessary swallowing and breathing here and there. But, that said, I appreciated the tempo and in reality, some of the speakers would have swallowed or taken a breath where James did.
There way too many moving moments! Like the first time the God King declared his love, the second time he declared his love for his wife to the woman to whom he had originally been betrothed. Then there's the moment when he is dragged helplessly and moaning for his wife in realisation that both their lives were to come to an end, that he couldn't protect her or prevent her death. I was also moved by the princess's experiences as a lowly beggar; the hardships she had to endure, the difficult choices she had to face and make, and her self-re-evaluation.
Not many books give you a satisfying end, and keep you intellectually mesmerised or engaged throughout the book. This is one such book!! You almost want the author to have written a bit more, but if you appreciated the talent of the author in constantly engaging your own imaginative mind and intellect, you'd accept that it was a fitting end to a fantastic masterpiece!
