I listened to this book on CD - most of it on a family vacation to Arizona and back. I thought that it was pretty entertaining, although it has a great deal of similarity to other Sanderson novels, especially Mistborn. I thought that the reader was quite good and engaging - it is weird to have male readers do female voices (and vice versa). The reader is MacLeod Andrews.

The story is a super hero story with a twist, which I found enjoyable. The family was pretty engrossed with the book.

A bit of meta commentary - three stars may seem a bit harsh, but three stars indicates that I liked the book, which is exactly how I felt about it. Star inflation for ratings seems to be something that can quickly get out of control. ( )

I listened to this book on Audible

First the cover: There are two different versions for this book, neither of which I really care for at all. The second image, not shown above, is different only in that there is a man in the image as well as the punctured steel. Both are, quite honestly lazy.

Now for the story itself: A few years ago there was an event, one that for one reason or another (the origin and reason I’m sure will be explained as the series goes on) gives people ( not everyone) superhuman abilities. They come to be known as epics. Long story short, one kills David’s dad (don’t worry, not a spoiler) and from that day on he’s dead set on revenge.

This is every bit the revenge story, but it’s so much more. It’s a story about overcoming loss, overcoming obstacles big and small, about finding ones self and ones purpose. It’s a story of determination. You can probably tell I really liked this story a lot. But in saying that I am going to knock it. This is YA, and because of that the darker avenues the author could have went down weren’t explored. Each character was nicely drawn-up but with less watering down their pain and struggles could have been more thoroughly explored. A lot of realness was missing because of this. If their pin and psychology could have been further explored it would have set the story in such a firm, frightening, complex foundation that it would have been nearly perfect. I say nearly because no story is ever perfect regardless of how much psychoanalysis one puts in it.

In saying that however, the story still manages to be exciting. So you’re thinking, well then it didn’t need all you said it did. You’d be wrong. There’s a sense of something missing while you read this book. It doesn’t nag at you, but it doesn’t leave you be either. That sense of something missing is what I laid out above. Your brain is going to tell you that there is more to this, that it can all be deeper and more profound then it is – and you’d be right. The fact that the story is still really good despite that only serves to prove me right. ( )

Holy Calamity, this was a good book! Supervillains vs. ordinary folks. It was epic. Pure and simple. Brandon Sanderson is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors. ( )

Well, everybody else in my friend list who has read this loved it, but I found it meh at best. I read it aloud to my family and found it very tedious. This was a bummer, as I really liked the Mistborn series by Sanderson, and though I haven't read the later Wheel of Time books, my wife says that Sanderson was a better writer in the end than Jordan (and I liked the first books in the WoT series plenty). So I had high hopes and was sorely disappointed. I won't be reading more in this series (but am still open to reading more by Sanderson. ( )

Como me dijo Pablo Bueno, es un buen ejemplo del palomitpunk. A ver qué tal el siguiente. ( )
