A review by butterfliezzinstead
Elantris, by Brandon Sanderson

4.0

Hallelujah! I finally finished this book after 4.5 months!

Don't get me wrong, the book is very good and the plot is interesting, but the first half-ish of the book is moving really slow plot-wise, although still filled with interesting politics.
I felt like most of the action happened after around 80%+-, and the real action that leaves you on the edge happened between 90%-98% of the book.

Other than the slowness - this is a really great book. The world is interesting, with plenty of politics and interesting characters.

I give this book 4 stars and not 5 solely because of the slow pacing.

Read (originally, though I couldn't keep up) as part of the cosmeralong.
