Not remotely typical of what I read, but entertaining to levels beyond expectations. I look forward to reading the next books.

It was a good enough story, not outstanding. I think maybe I have read too many like this.

Nicely wrapped up story<br />

I think this is a young adult book, but it was fine for an old fart to read. Decent characters, good pace, nice reveals.

Nice world, good characters, not predictable. My only complaint was it was a bit short.

Just gets better and better

Read this three times so far, same as the previous two. Love Sanderson, and Stormlight Archive. World building and characters are superb.

Don't judge the book by the movie

Wil Wheaton was perfect as narrator. I had misgivings after the movie but the book is really very good, love the old school pop culture and geek references, and still had a decent story wrapped around the outside.

I think this trilogy broke a few tropes, offered a few pleasant surprises, and was a good read along the way. There were no big loose ends and I enjoyed it second time around as well.

I really struggled to keep track of characters and events. Not keen to continue with the series. I may attempt a re-read just in case.

Certainly an unusual read

An interesting story that slowly weaves the threads together, knowing a little of Japan helps.

Awesomeness continues

Some complaints were raised about the lack of Joe and Skippy but a great volume.
