5.0 out of 5 stars Sanderson's Mistborn, April 5, 2010
Brandon Sanderson's trilogy of Mistborn novels were extremely entertaining and enjoyable to read. Even those who may not be avid science-fiction or fantasy enthusiasts can still enjoy his work. The story is light without being superficial and deep without being inaccessible. Easy to read and yet thought-provoking, these books let the reader imagine what it would be like if our world worked a little bit differently from the way that it does. What if the same laws of nature still applied but their effects simply went further? What if the big questions that all existence seems to be asking all the time were answered in ways we would never expect? Brandon explores these kinds of questions without losing any ground in plot. His stories are fast-paced and intriguing, pulling you along until you have to know what will happen next. The characters are vibrant and engaging and the relationships highly realistic. Although the events that play out seem grounded in a different reality, the interactions between the characters ring absolutely true.
Brandon is a master of adventure and bringing a fantasy world into believable focus. I stepped out of my comfort zone to read his books and found myself highly involved in the kind of story I wasn't sure would interest me. I enjoyed the way that Sanderson played with epigraphs before each chapter that provided back-story to his plot while at the same time foreshadowing future events and providing added suspense and meaning to the primary story and characters. I thought it very well done and definitely recommend his books to anyone looking for a new experience. You'll enjoy it.
