WEFOUNDelantris characters


The first book of the series (Mistborn) felt like a rehash of Sanderson’s debut novel, with only enough twists to keep it interesting but not enough to make it stand out.

This book is nothing like that. The characters are far more interesting, the twists are more interesting, the stakes are even higher.

For the first time in a long time I stayed all night to finish the book, devouring page after page just to see what happened next.

My Brandon Sanderson-athon has been continuing, and I’ve been enjoying myself immensely. While I was a third of the way through rereading ‘the Way of Kings’ I decided I would start ‘Elantris’ (mainly so I could read the soon-to-be-read-and-reviewed ‘The Emperor’s Soul’). It’s taken me two false-starts and a long two weeks to get there, but here I am finally having completed one of the most critically acclaimed and financially successful fantasy books of the past few decades.

I’ve been wanting to read Elantris for some time now, but every time I tried I just felt un-captivated by the story as it started. This false-start behaviour left me with weird assumptions as to what the book was going to be, which in turn kept me from returning to the book, and pushing on.

This time, however, I was determined to push on, despite the introductory slow nature of the book. I want to take some time one day to explore the idea that stand-alone stories require a bit of a different start, compared to books in a series, but that is a task for another day.
