I made sure to read the book before seeing the movie--which, by the way is excellent. This is a great beginning to a series and I can't wait to read the next book.

So many characters and so many stories within stories. I had a hard time slogging through this story. The scenes from the one weird planet, in my opinion kept interrupting the main nbarrative and I really wanted to skip through those scenes. Very bor ...more

I read this book before reading Insurgent. It answers a lot of questions about one of the main characters. I enjoyed this book much more that the second.

I really liked how this series began. I actually saw the movie first and then read the book. I have to say I kinda liked the movie better. All in all this is a great beginning to a promising series.

Another great story by Sanderson. It seems all of his stories have you wondering in the beginning whether or not it is worth your time to finish the book. But like most good thins they come to those who persevere and hang on. This was a unique tale a ...more
