Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

I’d always meant to read Brandon Sanderson. Well, not always, but for the last three years. Mistborn was introduced to me by a college friend. So I bought it. Then, it stood on my bookshelf for three years. It’s still standing there.

I picked up Elantris a few months ago when I was wandering around Barnes and Noble. Sanderson’s name was in my mind because I had recently heard about a new book set to come out, SteelheartElantris seemed like it was right up my alley. I desperately wanted to read a fantasy, but didn’t want to commit myself to a 30-book series (some exaggeration intended). I began reading a little over a month ago, and even though Orson Scott Card had a lot of great things to say about the book, I wasn’t impressed. In fact, I wanted for 300 pages, wavering on the brink of setting the book down for good, to finally be hooked.

That being said, I greatly enjoyed the final 300 pages. There were so many twists and turns, and *spoiler alert* at the very end when I was actually sure all was lost, and was attempting to give up hope, just as Galladon was, Raoden saved the day. I actually felt a little lost when the book ended. I haven’t experienced that since January when I read Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander. *Mental note* I need to start that series again.

  1. Outlander is amazing! Pretty sure the last book comes out in March 2014. What did you think of the ending of “An Echo in the Bone”? I could have killed Gabaldon for that cliffhanger!
