Roosevelt Attic (Volume 1)
Roosevelt Attic (Volume 1)
by 3 Joshua
Edition: Paperback
Price: $23.00
10 used & new from $16.84

5.0 out of 5 stars A peek into the attic (mind) of <3 Joshua, August 28, 2014
This book can be considered a piece of art before a book. It is the only book I have ever had the pleasure of reading horizontally, or landscape. The cover implies it likely is to be read like any other book, portrait style. But you would be wrong!

Roosevelt Attic by Joshua McLerran, or <3 Joshua as he is more affectionately known, is a book that is filled with hand written pieces, poems, anecdotes, etc. It comes off as more of an exhibition-like journal that one would keep for one self and not share with others, and yet this book, and the thoughts of Joshua are readily available for the world to see.

Read this book if you want to see something unique and new. Yes, there are pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Novella That Feels Much Bigger Than It Is, November 5, 2012
Brandon Sanderson is fantastic at creating magic systems. From the fully realized Mistborn saga that has three magic systems to the still very mysterious system being crafted in The Stormlight Archive series. In The Emperor's Soul, he has given us another fantastic magic system that (without spoiling much) allows people to rewrite the history of objects.

Even though it is a Novella, you grow really attached to protagonist, Shai, in the short time we spend with her. Most of that time is confined to a single room, but you would hardly notice it unless someone points out for you. You learn a lot about her past and her way of thinking as she has to sort of explain herself to one of her captors in order to further her own goals in the story.

The fight scenes are well done - reminds me of Mistborn - fast and the magic system naturally comes into play to give the protagonist that much needed edge.

I could go on about the book, but really in the end it is a quick but satisfying read. It is a world and magic system I really hope he chooses to explore in further books, whether they be novella or novel sized stories.

If you like any of Brandon's previous work, you'll like this.
