    1. Reading the book in pseudo-manuscript form was distracting at first, but I quickly got over it. The book was printed single-spaced in a tiny font on a hardback book of far greater than 8.5-11'' paper, cramming a 300,000+ word book onto 200 pages. In addition, it didn't have the luxury of italics, and only the front of each page was printed.But that's not important; what's important is the story. The best aspect of this book was the character growth; Sanderson managed to cover about ten years ove [...]


    2. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the one copy, available in the BYU library. While I leaned towards giving this book a four, the circumstances surrounding this book make me rate the book higher. The book is more of a manuscript, with many errors, so stands in need of a good edit. It obviously isn't intended to be read by a wide audience, since Brandon has yet to publish it. It feels like a rough draft and major changes will have to take place, namely the Shattered Plains will have to be rem [...]


    3. I've been a fan of Brandon Sanderson's since before he was even officially published -- and it started with this book. "Dragonsteel" is still my favorite Sanderson book and I keep anxiously awaiting its public release.


    4. I would give this 3 stars for writing quality, but I'm giving it 4 because Brandon wrote this (280,000 words!) as his undergraduate honor's thesis, a remarkable feat. I don't know how he managed to finish college and write this book at the same time.What I enjoyed most about this was seeing such an early stage in Brandon Sanderson's growth as an author. His talent for world-building, magic systems, and character development are all there, even if the story feels awkward and disjointed at times. [...]


    5. I agree with Brandon Sanderson's personal evaluation of this - it's not his strongest work. The narrative pacing is off, and some bits of the story feel a bit disconnected. The book ends in an unsatisfying set of cliffhangers, without the sense of closure that he can now achieve even when dropping a ton of cliffhangers on you. That said, it has a proto-Kaladin character and a proto-Hoid character and similarities to the Stormlight Archive generally, and it's fun to get some idea of how the whole [...]


    6. This was an excellent book. A good portion (maybe 2/5) was very similar to events in Way Of Kings, so don't read this first. This really shows off some of Sanderson​'s strengths and if you've read other things he's written, you can see where many of his ideas started and you can see his progression as a writer. Hopefully this gets rewritten and published because it was great. The format of the book was somewhat irritating, though.


    7. I respect this book for what it represents. But as Sanderson himself has said, it's not his best work. The story slows to a standstill at parts, the characters seem to act out of character at times, and the attempt at a love story becomes a bore. Since its a manuscript the formatting can be distracting, but overall manageable. What I really liked about this piece is the insights into the Cosmere. We see a proto-Hoid/Wit in his native land. We get a LOT of information on the three realms--Physica [...]
