I think this was a nice start to this series. I only read part one. But as the story went and i think i grew to like all the characters by the end of this series!! I think some of the heavy battle elements i struggled with!! but i really enjoyed the world and the characters. It is such a rich world!! I really loved most of this book! ( )

Dropped at 33% read.
For a popular book series with large page count I came in expecting something with either an amazing writing style and or fascinating characters and plot development.
Reality is that I am bored. Writing and plot is average so far, and I have little attachment to the characters.
The novel is dragging on and on and I don't feel like the 5% of amazing stuff somewhere in the book is worth the rest of my time.

This is also my first Brandon Sanderson book for me. Not a good start. If there are any of his novels which are faster paced and more interesting I would want to try them instead. ( )

I hate not finishing novels. That said, I'm not going to waste precious reading time on a book(and very lengthy series) that is this slow to start and seems to be a story about nothing in particular. And while I'm very well aware of the general concensus that sees this as the 'set-up' novel of a great rambling epic, I simply can't justify giving time to books that are written as a kind of over extended scene setter for the next 10 doorstoppers. This edition was the Part One of a two part first in the series of 10, and I find myself unable to force myself on after a mere 214 pages so I'm doing myself a favour and quitting now instead of ploughing ahead in the hope things improve.

It started well, reminding me a lot of the Mistborn trilogy with its strange magic and superhuman characters, but unlike Mistborn, it just slowed to a crawl and then almost stopped dead for hundreds of pages. Watching some unfortunate wretch running from place to place with a bridge and getting nowhere fast would actually be an apt description of this book thus far(214 pages). Unlike a lot of people, I'm not that forgiving of a novel(and a first novel at that) whose sole purpose it is to introduce the daily tedium of an unjustifiably tedious world. I've absolutely no doubt whatsoever that it will pick up from book 2 or maybe 3 or whatever, but that's simply no excuse for creating such tedium, nor for the apologist attitude towards an awful lot of epic fantasy these days that seems to enjoy nothing more than making the excuse that 'it's a set-up novel' so it's ok that it's boring. No... it's not ok. It really isn't.

Very tedious. Very plodding. Very pedestrian. And so not worth your time.
