A review by lambofhisflock
Elantris, by Brandon Sanderson


This was Sanderson's first work and well done for a first book. It grabbed me in the beginning but had moments that seemed slow especially as he worked through the politics. Other parts seemed self-indulgent and unnecessary. Then it sped up as the end approached. At one point near the climax I was calling out no no no.... and felt like cheering at other moments. Definitely a good read, if not my favorite Sanderson. (My husband was less kind.... finding it twice as long as it should have been.)

I am eager to re-listen to Mistborn but this time with my husband.... who I hope enjoys it as much as I did. :D
