Elantris is the 2nd book that I have read from Brandon Sanderson. I fell in love with his writing after reading Mistborn for the first time. I am in absolute awe of the magic systems that he is able to create, and Elantris delivers as well. As the first novel that Sanderson wrote, you can see a different writing style than what appears in Mistborn. He writes Elantris in chapter triads where every third chapter focuses on one of the main character's point of view. This is a very ingenious form of writing and really read quite easily throughout most of the book. The chapter triad breaks down later in the book, but that does not affect the ease to follow the story. This is a great book, though you might get more out of the genius that is Brandon Sanderson if you read one of his later novels first.
