Really has it all — great characters and intrigue, terrific worldbuilding, and so many wonderful twists and turns. I think this Sanderson fellow is going places. I thought the audiobook narration was very well done, too.

Quotes by Jeff Deck  (?)

“She described to us six lanes' worth of unadulterated fear, populated exclusively by motorists whose driving education had been paid for by the blood of pedestrians.”
Jeff Deck, The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time

“We speak, and write, in one of the most diverse, gloriously ecumenical tongues on the planet. In English, there is a word or phrase for pretty much anything we want to say, and if there isn't, we make it up, and it is welcomed into the family. We can express ourselves as complexly or as simply as we like. We can be magniloquent didacts, or we can talk plain.”
Jeff Deck

“The standard clauses of the American dream only included two weeks of vacation a year.”
Jeff Deck, The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time

“Let's get one thing clear right now, shall we? There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers; good story ideas seem to come quite literally from nowhere, sailing at you right out of the empty sky: two previously unrelated ideas come together and make something new under the sun. Your job isn't to find these ideas but to recognize them when they show up.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“John Steinbeck once said that socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”
Ronald Wright, A Short History of Progress
