I then bought two sets of the physical book trilogies, one for my best friend, and one so that I could go back and read the whole thing again, but with easy flip-ability to maps and previous pages, because that's something you'll want to do. There is a Shyamalayan-esque twist to his stories that, like Sixth Sense, made me want to go back and experience the whole thing again, now knowing what was revealed at the end.
I recommended this trilogy to my mother, best friend, boyfriend, and 4 coworkers so far, and am happy to spread the word more! Also, let's all get behind this series so the movie option finally gets picked up, because that would make for some awesome, never before seen types of special effects!
The world is insanely well thought out, the author's brain humbles me with it's imagination. This author introduces new creatures that aren't even remotely like any of your familiar fantasy dragons, trolls, what-have-you; they are all his own and amazing.
I'm all over the place with this review, because I have so many good things to say about it, but don't want to say anything about content. Just read it. I have series commitment issues myself, so feel free to just read the first one. Though he leaves a lot open for more books at the end of all his stories, he does at least tie up the main plot conflict very neatly at the end of each as well, so you do get a sense of closure. But trust me, by then you WILL want to read more.
The characters themselves are intriguing, at first fitting character tropes (the leader, the grumpy old man, the nonchalant better-than-thou, the street kid, etc), but very well delving deep into development of these characters. Caricatures are only bad if that's all they remain, but the characters in Mistborn are so well fleshed out and developed, you grow to understand them as much as you grow to understand the world around them.
The story itself moves intelligently, tying plotlines together and always seeming relevant. Intrigue, action, and tension around each corner.
It is hard for me, in retrospect, to believe how good this series was, especially considering how fast Sanderson writes (how many large books ~700pg can one man write in one year??). To me, this is one of my favorite fantasy series I've read. And I hadn't heard of him two months ago! This series has something for everyone: a well developed and very well thought out, and original, magic system; the characters are complex and have different personalities; the story line itself is epic and gives scope to everything hanging in the balance; there is romance, lots of action; it was honestly hard to do anything else in my spare time while I was reading this series...
Some of the traps other fantasy authors tend to fall into -- dragging out climactic events over too many books -- did not plague this series. This trilogy was very well put together and the events were obviously preplanned. I have to give him credit because he did not shy away from not only killing off major characters, but he also had a powerful conclusion to each book. I kept waiting to be let down, but never was. This book series is quite tremendous. It should be a model for how to write a fantasy series.
