    The Way of Kings

    A well developed and over-all well written story that suffers only from too concerted an effort to be "epic". The book would be greatly enhanced if only it did not chop and change between characters so frequently and instead allowed the reader to become more deeply invested in their story before moving to another character. Indeed if the book were simply restructured to combine three or four of each character's chapters into a single story element, without changing a word of what is written, then it would have a less manic nature and significantly improve the story. That being said, the ending comes together very well, sets up nicely for the sequel and I am sufficiently engaged to read the second book.

    Terrific fantasy

    This book is long. Very long. But its just terrific. It can drag a bit here and there but once the story is moving it just keeps getting better. Highly recommend.

    Read it, but maybe start smaller

    I loved it and would recommend it to everyone. However I am very much aware that this book can be a tough start to Sandersan's Cosmere. I had already read every other Sanderson book out there and was aware of his overarching world building plot. That was part of what made me keep up with the relatively big number of characters and the sometimes arising feeling of 'I want to go back to that character'. It was not as hard as Game of Thrones (which I still love, but book four was sometimes difficult), but I noticed and have heard that it is a problem for some. If you love long book (series) give it a go and even if not check out Sanderson, but than maybe start with something smaller.

    Simply incredible.

    Now in my life top 10. A masterpiece to stand the test of time.
