But Who'll Sarah Fee?

It occurred to me yesterday that my favorite thing to do - read a book while I'm eating - is just a combination of reading and eating. Bo-ring. I'm boring.

Mistborn: The Final Empire  - Brandon Sanderson After my first read:

Now, the book as a whole wasn't really that good in my opinion. I mean, it wasn't very memorable. Just something to read in between real books. I think the writing style made it seem that way; unmemorable. I changed my mind when I finished it.

The beginning was good, it went on alright, but then something went HORRIBLY wrong in the middle, maybe towards the end. Although I don't think I've seen/heard/read about the same lame mini-plot before, it seemed like I did. Lots of times. It was pretty hard to get through, and I couldn't stop asking myself WHY, WHY, WHY? I felt like my little sister was the one who was supposed to be reading it.

But THEN! The ending! The ending made it ALL worthwhile. I want you to read it, try to get through the sappy part, and you will hopefully be greatly rewarded.


After my second read:

I'm recommending this left and right, people. Come to me for a book and I will buy you five copies of Mistborn. This book is amazing.
