DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY
Leyrann

Mistborn: The Original Trilogy is amazing.

Recommended Posts

I feel a bit bad for saying that I liked his Wheel of Time writing - I noticed some of the humour of the characters change and the tempo. I knowhow people feel about plot ends feeling like they ended a bit prematurely, and maybe RJ might have given us something that felt more... conclusive, but maybe it would have been the same

I could also tell the parts where RJ had done most of thewriting though, like the ending or a couple other scenes

 

loved Mistborn, and Alloy of Law just as much, maybe a bit more - I'd never read a 'gunslinger' novel before, and I really enjoyed it, also the way the magic system had changed from Mistborn (but with a couple enduring elements)

And how can you not enjoy his chapter-by-chapter commentary: http://brandonsanderson.com/annotation-mistborn-introduction/

 

ooh yes, I saw someone else mention, Warbreaker was excellent, the first piece of his that I read,very, very cool (and free!)

Don't worry, I liked his Wheel of Time writing too. Yeah, it's not what Robert Jordan would have written, but it's lighter to read imo, and well, maybe it's because I'm blunt myself, but I actually liked the way he wrote Mat more than the way RJ did.

Mat was definitely funnier for me in the last three books

Also, I've only read Wax and Wayne yet, and I don't know if you've read Shadows of Self yet, but from Wax and Wayne I got the feeling that, while there are no mistborn, we shouldn't rule out the return of them at some point.

I really liked seeing how the Allomantic powers interacted with technology in the new age. I also liked having more points of view from someone who wasn't a full Mistborn, though we still are seeing the Twin-born rather than just a normal Misting. 

 

I really really love Wax and Wayne, and I've really liked both of the spin-off books so far. I'm looking forward to the rest of that series.

That's what I figured the girls were kidnapped for. They're trying to breed a Mistborn. 

 

Also, while Twinborn is a thing, a full Mistborn+Feurchemist born that way is impossible according to Sanderson. I figure it's still possible with Lerasium (which I'm hoping we see more of. What happens when an Allomancer burns it? What do it's alloys do?)

    • Just savor the breaks. It's so nice when you just have to worry about a job and not class too.
    • Hi!!!   Welcome to DM! It doesn’t have to end! That’s why we are here!    The best way to get to meet new friends is to join the social groups. Once you join, you will be able to see all of the boards.   If you have any questions, please ask.
    • " Know your facebook acount? I can download and copy anything on your account. I can steal your photo pretty easily. Viewing a cloud, and viewing the pictures requires the ability to download (copy). Viewing any photo on your computer downloads a copy of said photo. That's just how computers & the internet work.  If you view the cloud no differently that photo hosting sites like photobucket, there is no way to offer read only access without the ability to copy/download a file, while still letting people view the contents with implied consent to view, but not distribute."   Which is why I argue that you do not have any privacy rights to things posted in your facebook account etc.     "All I'm getting at is that laws need to get updated, and people need to get educated on what their rights & responsibilities are."   I would say that the real issue is that people should acknowledge that posting material to sites that others can view is counter to their privacy interests and concerns. If you shout shout out in what you presume to be an empty lot secrets and someone overhears you have lost your right to keep the information you shouted out private. It's not a good argument for you to assert that you wrongly believed that the lot was empty of people. Same is true for the cloud and internet in general.  That you wish that they were private does not in anyway effect the fact that they are not.  
    • Cost for one. Also it would destroy the very cncept that 90% of the Democratic candidates have any realistic chance. The media makes money covering the primary as a horse race, to suggest that almost theneitrie field is filled with nags would be counterproductive.    
    • Nope if you change Guns for abortion, the Conserv atives want to ban all Guns and the Liberals want to make all firearms including nuclear weapons legal for individuals t0 use.
