I still think the movie will be better than the book. The book is weak, but it was one of the fastest readings i ever did, mainly because if you take out the references, it's a weak short story.

Fanfic level. But we live in a world where 50 Shades and RPO are considered literature, so, what do i know?

 

I still really really want a first edition of 2001. It's like my book-collecting goal.

No. Sanderson is good at creating magic systems, but as a storyteller he’s mediocre at best.

Compared to RPO, is MistBorn literature?
I'd like to think so.
Although I respect your opinions either way.

I had to google Brandon Sanderson, but i still can't make up my mind about it.

Honestly, just check out Elantris or MistBorn book 1. They're pretty ok.(Especially MistBorn, nomnomnom~! I Eat it Up!)

Oh, I agree with you, no contest there. At least Mistborn tells a story that stands on its own merit and pulls you along with interesting ideas, instead of repeating “hey, ‘member that?” For 300 pages.

I didn’t like it, but I respect it.

Also, is it racist or offensive or something that I find myself saying 'oy vey' a lot in my daily life even though I am not Jewish? It's just such a perfect encapsulation of that feeling of mild exasperation.
