5.0 out of 5 stars One of those books one cannot let go, 5 Mar 2008
This review is from: Mistborn: The Final Empire (Mistborn Trilogy) (Mass Market Paperback)
I enjoyed Elantris a lot and waited eagerly for new Sanderson book. Somehow I nearly missed it and only now read it.
On the other hand, book was worth the wait, and I read it in one day, barely let it off my hands to eat.
It's written very well, the story flows and even when there is not much happening plotwise, there is no dull moments in the storytelling.
Characters are interesting and deep enough, even if main character Vin is not my favourite character ever. But everyone is detailed person with their own habits, nature, hopes and fears and they make fine teachers, friends, enemies and even love interest for her.
The ending has few surprises, but mostly it's guessable. That's not a bad thing, since the events are described colourfully and at least I wanted to turn pages faster to find out what really happens next.
I really love his writing style and the idea of using metals as 'mana' is interesting - I haven't seen it anywhere else. The political situation, everyday life and different people, everything is thought out and drawn well into a great story.
