    Description

    From number one New York Times best-selling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action. 

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison. 

    Kelsier "snapped" and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. A brilliant thief and natural leader, he turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark. Kelsier recruited the underworld's elite, the smartest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom shares one of his many powers, and all of whom relish a high-stakes challenge. Only then does he reveal his ultimate dream, not just the greatest heist in history, but the downfall of the divine despot. But even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel's plan looks more like the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into his life. 

    Like him, she's a half-Skaa orphan, but she's lived a much harsher life. Vin has learned to expect betrayal from everyone she meets, and gotten it. She will have to learn to trust, if Kel is to help her master powers of which she never dreamed. 

    This saga dares to ask a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails?

    Prepare for sleepless nights

    You will feel like you need to pull all-nighters. Your social life will suffer. If you use audio books while at the gym, you'll reach your goal weight as you easily lose track of four hours on a treadmill. You will be tired and dependent on coffee. This was me and it was worth it.

    Enter Sanderson's Cosmere at your own risk. I regret nothing.

    Odd Fantasy Concept

    This first volume has a storyline with sort of like a cross between Oceans 11 and Pymalion. While unusual in many respects, it's overall an interesting story. Occasional mis-pronounced words leave you trying to figure out what the narrator just said.

    Very interesting idea- just didn't take off for me

    I liked this book- but I didn't love it. The premise and characters are interesting enough, but it just took a long time to set itself up and I kept waiting for something more to occur. I found the narrator's voice choices to be a little odd- he seemed to insert sort of growling pauses in places where I was not expecting them. But I got used to it and overall he did a good job once I was accustomed to his voice.

    I suppose I wanted to just be really CRAZY about this book- many people gave it a very high review. But I just liked it all right. I will probably get the sequel at some point when nothing else I am really waiting for is available. I do want to find out what happens to the characters and see how the world progresses- but I don't feel that burning fever to download the next book right away because I can't wait!- you know what I mean?

    The magic in the book has to do with Mistborn who can 'burn' different elements to enhance their natural abilities. There is an upper class and a slave class, and a criminal element who is trying to organize the slave class to revolt and overthrow an overlord who may or may not be an all-powerful God. That is a very brief summary, but gives you the gist of the larger plot.

    As I said, this book was a decent listen, but not the best I've ever heard. I was interested enough to give the next one in the series a try- hopefully the pacing and plot will pick up there! A lot of first novels in a series seem weaker than later ones to me. I notice that many reviewers who loved this book are fans of the author, who finished the Wheel of Time series after Robert Jordan the original author died. I was not a big fan of that series either, so maybe that explains why my response to this book wasn't more enthusiastic.

    2nd to the Storm-light Archives.....

    I started the Mistborn series because I read the Stormlight Archives by Sanderson and wanted more epic fantasy. I was a bit skeptical at first because there were so many similarities between styles and even character names between the two-book series.

    The Mistborn Trilogy being a predecessor to Stormlight, I thought I might be disappointed… I was wrong.

    It's easy to see why Robert Jordan picked Brandon Sanderson to finish his Wheel of Time series. Although I noticed some distinct similarities in characters between Mistborn and Elantris (another great listen by Sanderson), he has so much imagination in how to make a world unique.

    This story is not just another dwarves/elves/orcs story line and magic doesn't just "exist". There's a thought process behind where it comes from and how to use it and the dangers and consequences of doing so. I'm already about halfway through the next book in the series, The Well of Ascension, and it's fun to see how Sanderson left threads for the series to follow yet at the end of Mistborn, there didn't feel like there was anything unfinished.

    One remarkable thing about this series is how well the history, politics and overall backdrop of this story is explained. Never once was I bored about learning new things about this fascinating, desolate world.

    Also unique is that the protagonist of the book is a woman, and Sanderson does a great job of portraying her realistically. Even though she gains enormous power over the course of the narrative, the author does not forget her origins, and her origins continue to define how she reacts to her circumstances throughout the book. In fact, all of the characters, even the minor ones, display realistic motivations for their actions, and come across as very real.

    As for Kramer-
    Michael Kramer, once again, did an amazing job with the narration. I'm amazed at how he manages to create a voice, tone, and referent emotion for each character. He really brings the characters to life and adds an immeasurable depth the story. He is an incredible performer and his narration here is “still” flawless.

    For those familiar with A Game of Thrones (George R.R. Martin) and Wheel of Time (Robert Jordan), Sanderson's style fits comfortably between these two tomes. His story is not as "gritty" and "real" as Martin's series and his story is not as fantastic as Jordan's series. The idea behind the magic system is well-thought out an the characters are easy to like.

    My “only” gripe is that I found the writing to be a bit heavy handed at times. For instance, I felt there was a lot of repetition that reminds the reader over & over again about the same character points - ex. I found myself often thinking things like "okay okay x has had a hard life, she doesn't trust easily, alright I get it I get it." It's consequently very easy to read & follow; I think I'd just prefer a style that's a bit more subtle. I think this issue also led me to dislike one of the main characters (Vin) more than I otherwise would have - I found myself more often feeling impatient rather than sympathizing with her when hearing narration about her doubts, fears, etc.

    I fell asleep, repeatedly.

    this is a limited review as I only got four chapters into the book. the story seems ok, and the world looks interesting. the problem is a combination of a bored and monotone narrator, coupled with material that is just not intended as an audiobook. I tend to fly through books, but this one was a real struggle that kept putting me to sleep

    You need to read this series

    The series is incredible! Sanderson‘s world building and magic system is vast and intriguing. I have read this first book twice and listened to it twice now. Sanderson’s ability to leave clues of the mysteries that unfold in later books makes the story interesting even after several readings. Kramer, as narrator, is masterful (I think it is well known though, as he is an iconic narrator).

    I’m sure that there are enough detailed reviews about the plot, character development, and the like. So I will keep it simple by stating that this series is my favorite of Sanderson’s (and I have blasted through the first three Stormlight Archives books twice now, and have read around a dozen of his novels outside the six books that make up the Mistborn series). I believe that any reader would enjoy the Mistborn series, even those who are not drawn to the fantasy genre. Sanderson is one of the best storytellers there is, in any genre. This series in my top three of all-time favorites. If you are an avid reader (and I would assume you are if you are taking the time to read this review), just do yourself a favor and start this literary journey ASAP.

    Lastly:
    If you don’t read this series, your life will be less meaningful. If you don’t read this series, you will never know true happiness as a reader. If you don’t read this series, you will become the reason that babies cry. If you don’t read this series, I will personally judge you and curse your house’s name. So, again, just do yourself a favor and read this series. You will not need to seek me out and thank me later, as I will know in my heart that you have been blessed with this story. You are welcome. Godspeed my unknown friend.

    Good story, mediocre narration.

    I found Kramer's pace to be incredibly slow - this is the first time I've ever listened to an audio book on 1.25 speed.

    A GREAT TRILOGY!!!

    I just finished the third audio book in the "Mistborn" trilogy and wanted to write my review starting with th first to let anyone know who is wondering whether to invest their time in another series to absolutly read this one. This story is epic. Brandon Sanderson writes a classic and was clearly the right pick to finish Jordon's WOT series.
    The narration by Michael Kramer is award worthy. He not only gives a distinct and believable voice to each character, he brings them to life.

    Hmm

    Like many others, I tried this book out because the author, Brandon Sanderson, is writing the final book/s of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.

    I'm hesitant to be overly critical, so I'll just say that I very much hope that he's writing A Memory of Light in the style of Robert Jordan, not in the style of Brandon Sanderson.

    The magic in the book is pretty good, but the book itself is kind of... well, it's kind of wedged in a crack between David Eddings (flippant, glib characters who tell the same jokes over and over) and Tom Clancy (lots and lots and lots of expository dialogue). I love both authors, so that's not exactly criticism, it just makes for some very odd pacing.

    Mistborn isn't a BAD book, it's just... a book. Not exactly a waste of a credit, but so incredibly dull at times that I found myself watching TV while listening to some of the epic planning sessions the characters held.

    Not bad but

    I got this book based on the reviews. I did finish the series but I have to say I am surprised it had such high reviews. I think the series was ok but a pretty dry at times. I didn't like the fact that the characters never seemed to get more developed. I've read a lot of fantasy novels where the characters are pretty shallow in the first book and gradually get better as the story goes on. I did not think this happened in these books and it was pretty disappointing. It wasn't as bad as some and if you're just looking for a decent way to spend a few hours this wasn't bad.

    Bestes Fantasy Epos seit langem

    Ich höre regelmäßig Fantasy Literatur, aber bin regelmäßig enttäuscht von den mittelmäßigen Fähigkeiten der Autoren. Oft ergehen sie sich in ellenlangen, einschläfernde Beschreibungen ihrer Fantasy-Welt, kreieren eindimensionale Charaktere und schreiben extrem simple und vorhersehbare Geschichten, die sie dennoch auf mehrere Bände platt walzen. Meist fehlen jede Grautöne, die Guten sind 100% Gut, die Bösen 100% böse, etc.
    NICHT SO bei der Mistborn Serie:
    Der Kosmos der Mistborn-Serie ist komplex, ungewöhnlich und sehr intelligent aufgebaut.
    Die Handlungsstränge entwickeln sich fortwährend und jede Eröffnung führt zu einem weiteren Level der Geschichte.
    Die Gestalten und Charaktere sind interessant und lebendig. Sie haben alle eigene Biographien und entwickeln sich im Laufe der Geschichte weiter.
    Durch den Lauf der Geschichte und die Entwicklung der Charaktere entstehen immer wieder neue Handlungsstränge und es gibt tolle Wendungen - die im Nachhinein immer Sinn machen.
    Bis zum Ende von Band III ist vollkommen offen, wie die Geschichte ausgehen wird.
    Besser kann moderne Fantasy kaum geschrieben werden.

    Einfach klasse!

    Ich bin zwar noch nicht durch, aber ich kann jetzt schon sagen, dass ich von dem Buch echt begeistert bin .
    Ich bin erst duch "The Gathering Storm" auf ihn aufmerksam geworden. Dort hat er mich jedoch so überzeugt, dass ich auch mal in eines seiner eigenen Werke reinhören wollte. Und wie es das Schicksal wollte, konnte ich es nicht mehr ausmachen und habe so die ersten 7h am Stück gehört und so die Nacht verbracht, obwohl ich eigentlich nur ein wenig vorm Einschlafen hören wollte.
    Der Einstieg ist etwas schwierig, weil sofort viele unbekannte Personen auftauchen, wenn man sich aber ein wenig Zeit gibt, macht es danach einfach nur Spaß zuzuhören!

    Michael Kramer ist dazu ein wirklich guter Vorleser, der es schafft die Figuren lebendig werden zu lassen. Kein Wunder, dass ich nicht abschalten konnte. :)

    gute Geschichte

    ich wollte mal einen neuen Autor im Fantasybereich testen und bin zufällig auf Sanderson gestoßen. Das Buch hat mir so gut gefallen, dass ich gleich die ganze Trilogie gehört habe. Für mehr Bände reicht meine Geduld normalerweise nicht, aber die Geschichte ist spannend und hat einige gute Ideen. Die von Sanderson geschaffene Welt ist anders als andere - zur Abwechslung mal keine Elfen/Zwerge/Drachen/Werwölfe/Vampire.

    Der Vorleser Michael Kramer haucht den Charakteren Leben ein. hat mir super gefallen

    richtig gut

    eigentlich habe ich diesen sanderson nur gekauft, weil ich seinen schreibstil kennenlernen wollte, denn er schreibt ja Wheel of time zu ende. erstmal hat sich mir die ganze geschichte nicht erschlossen, ich fand keinen zugang. dann habe ich es liegen lassen und jetzt wieder angehört und siehe da: mir gefällt es richtig gut. es ist eine düstere welt, die sanderson beschreibt aber mit sehr guten eigenständigen ideen. hörenswert.

    Tolle Trilogie, Sprecher Durchschnitt

    Mir gefiel die Geschichte sehr, besonders der wissenschaftliche Ansatz, mit dem Sanderson seine magische Allomancy aufbaut. Insofern ist die Reihe absolut zu empfehlen.
    Allerdings muss ich sagen, dass der Sprecher Kramer nicht in der Lage ist wirklich Spannung zu erzeugen. Es hört sich über weite Strecken wie eine dokumentarische Aufzählung der Ereignisse an. Kramer bricht seinen Rythmus und Tonfall auch in hitzigen Gefechten zwischen den Mistborn in keinster Weise. Das mag unter anderem daran liegen, dass Sandersons Schreibstil Kramers Tonfall begünstigt, aber mich hat es besonders bei dramatischen Szenen immer wieder aus der Immersion gerissen, wenn Kramer nichteinmal die Stimme hebt und stattdessen den Kampf beschreibt als würde er eine Tierdoku erzählen. Das ist insbesondere sehr schade, da er eine großartige Stimme für solche Geschichten hat. Momente mit Witz und trockenem Humor sowie die Verkörperung der (männlichen) Charaktere gelingen ihm hingegen größtenteils sehr gut.
    Ich habe mir alle drei Teile angehört, immer in der Hoffnung, dass er die dramatischen Momente besser hinbekommt (und natürlich weil ich wissen wollte, wie es ausgeht...). Insgesamt empfehle ich hier aber eher, selbst zu lesen.

    Power-Creep Yo Ho!

    TL;DR: This book did not make me want to get another one of the series. I was almost relieved when it ended.

    Mild spoilers ahead, beware!

    The main character is suffering from severe power-creep. At the end, all of this power buildup is explained by simple heritage, even the BBEG is more developed than she. Some details are so worn-out that you wonder if they were meant to have some meaning.

    "Oh, I forgot that you are supposed to be Underage and we just discovered that I need to be older than that other character so - just let us have a discussion about our age difference so the reader does not think we forgot about that. We can ignore it afterwards. Also it is important to note that your decollete is no longer as flat as we made an effort to point out the last few times we had no reason to speak about it" (this is obviously an exaggeration, but that this has so firmly logged into my mind should show that this a problem with the writing)

    The most compelling thing about Mistborn is it's magical system. The author really made an effort to describe the inner workings of allomancy but promptly goes on a rampage by stacking additional exceptions on top because he remembered that the main character was now at an insuperable disadvantage.

    This book started out to be a hard science fiction take on fantasy with a world that has social and racial problems that are so close to our real world that I really started to feel uncomfortable (in a: I feel for this people way), that is until Space Jesus and his Wonderdog fly in and save the day by the laying on of hands.

    I think maybe If I just gave the next book a Chance I would start to like this Series but at the Moment it feels like a Chore. I had high hopes for this book since it was basically described to me as "the Martian" but in Fantasy.

    a good but light read

    this is a well-structured fantasy novel, and, refreshingly, with a female protagonist. however, sometimes the structure seems obvious and the characters are stereotypical in their heteronormativity and personas. all in all it is a light and quite nice read.

    the reading itself is excellent. Michael Kramer has an incredibly agreeable voice and his voice acting is good and diverse.

    My Second Sanderson series

    This has been my first Sanderson book after reading Skyward and Starsight.

    These are ofcourse entirely different worlds and settings, but i was not disappointed with my high expectations.

    The book starts of in a slight confusing way. Throwing stuff at you that you dont understand because it hasn't been explained yet. But as you keep reading it all starts to make sense.

    The characters while not all of them memorable, were great and kept me interested.

    The Worldbuilding in this was phenomenal and i really loved getting all these tiny bits of information and piecing them together.

    The story, maybe not the most original, still was executed greatly with its own twists and emotional moments. Even some laughs.

    The ending leaves things open and keeps you wondering about different kinds of stuff. Many questions unanswered.

    But thankfully, there's more books in this mistborn universe to read.

    All in all, i loved it. The action was good, i loved the magic system and while confusing and strange at the beginning it all unfolded perfectly.

    I highly recommend it.

    Now we know Sanderson wasn't always so GREAT !

    I perhaps should be upset for the time wasted reading (listening to) this book. But on the bright side, at least now I know that the great Brandon Sanderson wasn't always such a fantastic writer. Reading the Stormlight Archive, I was in awe of his mastery in not only crafting a fantastic story, even universe, with such realistic and well developed characters, but also in his genius use of words. I was disappointed to find none of that here, in a book so predictable with characters so flat. And the story really is predictable, so much that after I figured the truth about the main villain (The Lord Ruler) less than half the book in, I had to listen through ages which take the protagonist to finally begin to understand it, and it drags painfully as what one already knew is explained in the level beneath a child's intelligence. It's not only the lack of intrigue, the band of characters with hardly any depth, and the many logical mistakes in the book, but also the excruciatingly unskilled writing (especially the lack of creativity in use of words).
    But now I have a bigger question: How on Roshar could Brandon Sanderson, a man who has created such realistic and powerful female characters like Shallan, Jasnah, and Navani in the Stormlight Archive, have been satisfied with his protagonist in this book?!! Especially the last line in the book is really awful. It shatters any remains of decency the book might have still left.
