A review by nsv
Elantris, by Brandon Sanderson

  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? N/A
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


Elantris is Twilight for men who dislike twilight. The characters are predictable and nothing less than always idealistic therefore leaving their space for growth stiff and narrow. After the first 200 pages, there's little to learn from the plot.
