Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson | Book Review + Questions

Updated: Feb 28, 2023

Hey, you! 📘📘

Summer has come to an end and we're back to regular programming. But first a question - Why does a 2-month vacation always feel shorter than a week of work?!? That, I would love to know!!

Anyways, we had our book club discussion 2 days ago and as usual it was so much fun.

For the months of July and August, we read the fantasy Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. Normally, this is not a book I would pick on my own and to be honest, I don't know much about the fantasy genre.

At first, it was difficult for me to get into the book. To try to figure out what was going on. To remind myself that this was a fantasy. But I thought that the language was relatively simple so it was easy for me to understand and immerse eventually into this fantasy. It uses really basic vocabulary which isn't a bad thing. In this case, I'd rather read something direct and simple.

Unfortunately, this is not a book for me. Luckily, it wasn't so bad that I couldn't finish and all in all, this was a fun read with original ideas and some fun fights. But by the end of the book, which was more or less satisfying, I was ready for this to end. I know that this is a series but fortunately, I don't feel obliged to go on and read the other books in the trilogy.
