Brandon Sanderson: Mistborn

© 2006
– March 26, 2021

I figure I should read some contemporary stuff so I bought a trade copy of this through the mail for two bits because it seemed well known and Sanderson seems everywhere.

I made it to page 70 and stopped with no desire to go forward. It was about as genre fantasy as genre fantasy can get. Which means it was not literary as not literary can get, and as such not terribly interesting. And I rather found the premise silly, its execution unoriginal, and the writing mediocre at best.
