Dear Mr Sanderson:
Have some commas, on the house ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,;;;;;;;
(and some semi-colons for good measure)

I'm going to give this 3.5 stars and round up to 4. The first half of the book was slow for me, and the writing style kept throwing me out of the story. As much as I loved Sanderson's Mistborn series, he uses a LOT of choppy sentences here.

But about halfway through the writing picked up, the plot picked up, and for the first time in about 3 books THE STORY ACTUALLY MOVED. Yeah, I know, I'm excited too. I thought some of the plot lines were nicely carried/resolved, and I can't wait to read the next book. I have hopes that Sanderson will be able to finish this beautifully and we'll all just shun book #10.
