Like potatoes in a fire field.
Oh I forgot to mention that I finished Steelheart! I enjoyed it. It kept my interest all the way through, and I look forward to reading the next one.
Steelheart end spoiler:
I had guessed that Prof was an Epic after they mentioned the thing about Gifters, but I hadn't guessed about Megan being Firefight - that was a surprise! I am very curious why Epics go bad when they use their power....
Spoiler: for elia
THE TAINT OF THE DARK ONE HAS SPREAD AGAIN!!! haha jk that isn't it.
So happy you enjoyed it, it was a super fun read for me too! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on book 2!
Man I really should read Mitosis, then Book 2. I have them all in hardcover! I went to two Reckoners events and got my books signed, even.
You haven't finished them yet? I do highly recommend it, part of why I made this thread. I felt this series from Brandon in particular did not get enough love, it was really well done and not overbearing. I keep telling myself I will re-read Wheel of Time, but then I remember the thousand pages dedicated to clothing details and I am like ugh... do I really... lol
Don't get me wrong WoT will always be my favorite series, but it sure is a beast.
I have so many books from the library right now, I have to wait until I'm done with a few of them to start the second.
I understand completely Elia, I have 3 out right now...
I got a former friend to read Steelheart once. He was huge into comic books and I thought he'd like it. He just called it derivative and had nothing else to say about it.
I try not to, but I get so offended when my friends or family don't like the things I like.
For me it's more so with books. I go out of my way to suggest books to friends, and then most of the time they don't like the book.
So either I'm a poor judge of character or they suck for not liking the book.
I'll go with the latter.
Definitely the latter.
ever been to Guyton, Georgia Thaddius? @Thaddius al'Guy
Also, I think some people are just very picky... I for one have learned to let small things go and try to enjoy the overall picture being painted in my mind. If that makes any sense?
No, but I pass by it on the way to Savannah sometimes. Why do you ask?
Just shipped a computer part I sold to some guy there, he is a distant friend, so I was looking at Google Earth of that area earlier today. Looks quite nice, the weather is lovely there this week.
I read Mitosis last night since it was so short.
Go Elia Sedai!!!!
Necroposting because I just finished both Steelheart and Mitosis yesterday, and started on Firefight.
Seems like this series is what happens when a writer takes revenge on being forced to read dozens of bad creative writing student assignments. Some of the metaphors used are REALLY bad.
I actually like his science fiction stuff better than his fantasy stuff.
Yes, this is actually my favourite Sanderson series
And it takes so much imagination to come up with all of those bad metaphors/similes.
I have to say though, Steelheart is BY FAR the best book in this series. But the other two are also very good, just not as good as Steelheart
@Bruce al'Kay is this the one you were recommending me? I'm being lazy.
