Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Emperor's Soul (Hugo Award Winner - Best Novella) (Paperback)
I am an unabashed Brandon fan, having read all of his books. My son and I enjoy reading and talking about them all. I bought this book with considerable trepidation, having become accustomed to those fat Sanderson books (the books, not Brandon)that will not fit into your hip pocket with a shoe horn, telling a marvelous story that takes days or perhaps a week to get through, keeping me entranced and anxiously awaiting the next reading opportunity. But - I bought the darned thing anyway and found it to be absolutely stunning in it's simplicity of form. To me, harkening back to the favorite of my youth, Ernest Hemmingway. In this thoroughly enchanting book one hardly notices that the entire book, until the very end, takes place in the confines of a single small room. BUT don't let that keep you from purchasing this little gem, it is as big in spirit, excitement and drama as any book Brandon has written (maybe better).
