The Well of Ascension
I loved this book! Was disappointed that Vin didn't correct the world. I'm a little tired of epics that go on and on. Why not have Breeze and Alliandre go on to new adventures? Or so many of the other characters... I'd still look forward to reading them,
Really not a bad read. The editing seems to have been fixed or at least I didn't really notice the problems. Recommended (provided you read the first book in the series)
At no time during my reading was I bored or wishing the story had more of one thing or another, it had amazing detail and subtle quirks that gave you new attachments to many of the characters, even ones you thought wouldn't matter very much. The interweaving of story and the progression of it is seamless and feels great, the twists and turns are exciting as well as a gripping addition to the reading experience. Brandon Sanderson is bringing the fantasy genre to another level in my opinion and I can't wait to finish Hero of Ages.
Long but good!
I love the story, even if it is a bit long.
Great book, needs an editor.
This is a great book. Well worth the read.
However, it's obviously been digitized with OCR and there are quite a few minor errors an editor needs to correct. Don't the publishers even bother proofreading the books they OCR before selling them to people?
Wonderful story, terrible editing.
This is a good book. It's fast-paced and engrossing, and you really come to care for the characters. However, the editing is extremely sloppy. I don't know if the publishers had to use OCR software to get the book into ePub format or something, but on almost every page, there was an error bad enough that it interrupted my reading. Definitely a five-star story, but this book desperately needs some cleanup.
