Five out of Five

The first book of the mistborn trilogy is a great way to see all that Brandon Sanderson has to offer. The world building and magic is are just some of his skills. If you give mistborn a chance, you won't regret it.
Great story, images low resolution
Great, fun story. I look forward to read the other books in the series.
It's a shame the creator of this e-book couldn't be bothered to include maps with readable resolution.
I can't believe I just now discovered this book. Seriously one of the best fantasy novels. Entertaining, funny, great characters, a fully realized and detailed world. I had so much fun reading this book! And it packs a surprisingly emotional punch. Read this, don't hesitate. This sat in my queue for a long time and I can't believe I deprived myself of such an enjoyable book.
Best book I've ever read

Just finished this for the second time before moving on to 'shadows of self' and 'bands of mourning', and it was even better this time around. There's always another secret!
This trilogy is the best I've read. Mr Sanderson does an amazing job building the characters and telling the story. I recommend purchasing the whole trilogy, once you start reading this, you won't want to stop.
An amazing trilogy that keeps you turning pages. Sanderson builds your investment in all the characters throughout the series.
A great ready with some unpredictable plot twists.

Can easily say this is my favorite book of all time. Have read it twice in 1 year. Now listening to audio.
Highly recommend Mistborn!
Brandon Sanderson has "rioted" my love for the fantastic, magical characters of Mistborn. This was my first epic fantasy novel and I suspect it will be a hard act for any other franchise to follow. Just good story telling. My emotions were "pushed", and "pulled" along with the characters' struggles and triumphs. For me, Vin, Kel, Saze, Dox, Marsh, Ham, and Breeze became living, breathing people who I cared about. If you come to epic fantasy for the world building then this too will not disappoint as The Final Empire is given the full treatment from its ash stained cityscapes, depressing "skaa" slums, immaculate Noblemen's keeps, to the things that creep in the misty night. It's easy to see how Brandon Sanderson has earned such a strong reputation as a story teller.
Love the book. This is a series that I will be adding to by physical paper library!
This book isn’t only amazing, it even playes with your friggin’ emotions. One of the rare books that I find myself truly immersed and engaged with. it’s full of twists and turns, intrigue, and action. I wish I had a time machine so I can experience this book again.
If you’re an epic fantasy fan, then you must READ THIS!
