    Reading the book in pseudo manuscript form was distracting at first, but I quickly got over it The book was printed single spaced in a tiny font on a hardback book of far greater than 8.5 11 paper, cramming a 300,000 word book onto 200 pages In addition, it didn t have the luxury of italics, and only the front of each page was printed.But that s not important what s important is the story The best aspect of this book was the character growth Sanderson managed to cover about ten years Reading the book in pseudo manuscript form was distracting at first, but I quickly got over it The book was printed single spaced in a tiny font on a hardback book of far greater than 8.5 11 paper, cramming a 300,000 word book onto 200 pages In addition, it didn t have the luxury of italics, and only the front of each page was printed.But that s not important what s important is the story The best aspect of this book was the character growth Sanderson managed to cover about ten years over the course of the novel, moving at a steady clip the entire time As such, The protagonist Jerick goes from an aspiring lumb...

    I was lucky enough to get my hands on the one copy, available in the BYU library While I leaned towards giving this book a four, the circumstances surrounding this book make me rate the book higher The book isof a manuscript, with many errors, so stands in need of a good edit It obviously isn t intended to be read by a wide audience, since Brandon has yet to publish it It feels like a rough draft and major changes will have to take place, namely the Shattered Plains will have to be I was lucky enough to get my hands on the one copy, available in the BYU library While I leaned towards giving this book a four, the circumstances surrounding this book make me rate the book higher The book isof a manuscript, with many errors, so stands in need of a good edit It obviously isn t intended to be read by a wide audience, since Brandon has yet to publish it It feels like a rough draft and major changes will have to take place, namely the Shattered Plains will have to be removed since he used the idea for the Way of Kings I asked Brandon about this book and ...

    I would give this 3 stars for writing quality, but I m giving it 4 because Brandon wrote this 280,000 words as his undergraduate honor s thesis, a remarkable feat I don t know how he managed to finish college and write this book at the same time What I enjoyed most about this was seeing such an early stage in Brandon Sanderson s growth as an author His talent for world building, magic systems, and character development are all there, even if the story feels awkward and disjointed at I would give this 3 stars for writing quality, but I m giving it 4 because Brandon wrote this 280,000 words as his undergraduate honor s thesis, a remarkable feat I don t know how he managed to finish c...

    I agree with Brandon Sanderson s personal evaluation of this it s not his strongest work The narrative pacing is off, and some bits of the story feel a bit disconnected The book ends in an unsatisfying set of cliffhangers, without the sense of closure that he can now achieve even when dropping a ton of cliffhangers on you That said, it has a proto Kaladin character and a proto Hoid character and similarities to the Stormlight Archive generally, and it s fun to get some idea of how the whole I agree with Brandon Sanderson s personal evaluation of this it s not his strongest work The narrative p...

    This was an excellent book A good portion maybe 2 5 was very similar to events in Way Of Kings, so don t read this first This really shows off some of Sanderson s strengths and if you ve read other things he s written, you can see where many of his ideas started and you can see his progression as a writer Hopefully this gets rewritten and published because it was great The format of the book was somewhat irritating, though This was an excellent book A good portion maybe 2 5 was very similar to events in Way Of Kings, so don t read this first This really shows off some of Sanderson s strengths and if you ve read other things he s written, you can see where many of his ideas started and you can see his progression as a writer Hopefu...

    I respect this book for what it represents But as Sanderson himself has said, it s not his best work The story slows to a standstill at parts, the characters seem to act out of character at times, and the attempt at a love story becomes a bore Since its a manuscript the formatting can be distracting, but overall manageable What I really liked about this piece is the insights into the Cosmere We see a proto Hoid Wit in his native land We get a LOT of information on the three I respect this book for what it represents But as Sanderson himself has said, it s not his best work The story slows to a standstill at parts, the characters seem to act out of character at times, a...
