In 2005, Brandon Sanderson debuted with Elantris, an epic fantasy unlike any other then on the market. To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Tor is reissuing Elantris in a special edition, a fresh chance to introduce it to the myriad readers who have since become Sanderson fans. This new edition begins with a preface by author Dan Wells, the first person to read the completed novel, and a new afterword by Sanderson explaining how he came to write the book and its place in the Cosmere, the unified universe of all his Tor novels. Also included is the first book appearance of the short story "The Hope of Elantris," revealing interesting action referred to late in the novel, and an expanded version of the "Ars Arcanum" appendix, with more of the technical details of the book's magic that fans can never get enough of. Elantris was truly a milestone both for Sanderson and for the genre of epic fantasy. It deserves this special treatment, something Tor has done only once before, with Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game. Sanderson fans old and new will be excited to discover it.

This is my fifth Cosmere novel, but Brandon Sanderson's first. I read Warbreaker first, and you can definitely see how Warbreaker is a rewriting of this: a city of gods who don't do anything, a princess in an arranged marriage arrives in a foreign city, the man she was to marry isn't what she thought, the princess recruits disaffected merchants to her cause in one-on-one meetings.

I liked Warbreaker better. The chapters here about the prince and the princess are okay, if plodding. (More on that in a bit.) But the chapters about the religious fanatic dude were interminably dull. You would think a Mormon would be able to write a religious fanatic with more nuance.

I think the big problem I am having with Brandon Sanderson novels is that they all feel very... incremental. A tiny bit of progress is made in each section, again and again and again. There are very rarely any big moments that seize you, it's just a very slow very steady climb to the end. There are things that should be big on the way, but something about the way he writes mean they never feel big; he doesn't seem to know how make the energy of the novel ebb and flow in a way that propels the reader forward. It's just plod plod plod until you get to the end—which as always is a totally uninteresting reveal about the magic system. Wow, the prince guy figured out how to write magic words! This is the kind of thing that in Le Guin would be the thematic, emotional, and character lynchpin of the novel... but here it's just a thing that explains all the elements of the "magic system" you never wanted explained to begin with.

Good start to the Cosmere adventure. ( )

Ich schwanke zwischen 4 und 5 Sternen - dieses Buch ist WIRKLICH toll! Die Welt, die Brandon Sanderson entworfen hat, ähnelt (wie so viele Fantasy-Welten) unserem Mittelalter, allerdings gibt es - oder gab es - Magie. Irgendetwas ist Elantris, Stadt der Magier, zugestoßen und hat die Magie beschädigt. Seitdem sind Menschen, die von der Magie auserwählt werden und sich in Elantrier verwandeln, Ausgestoßene, die in der magischen Stadt vor sich hin vegetieren. Es braucht (ziemlich märchenhaft) einen Prinz und eine Prinzessin, die sich kennen und doch nicht kennen, um dieses Rätsel zu lösen und Elantris zu retten. Wirklich gut geschrieben und mit einer starken weiblichen Protagonistin.

This was a tough book to rate, and I considered giving it a 5 for quite a while before deciding on a 4. Perhaps the only reason I didn't give it a 5 was that it wasn't quite as good as Mistborn, and the conclusion was a little confusing (in regards to the Aons). It was a very interesting and well written book, however, and it is a testament to Sanderson's natural writing ability that this was his debut novel.

The only issue I had with this book was that I read Mistborn first, so I was always comparing the two. The books seemed to me to be remarkably similar in a number of ways. Serene seemed like a less fully realized version of Vin, and Sanderson's focus on religion was also similar in Elantris (despite being more important to Elantris' plot than to Mistborn's). Many of the characters were interesting, but his revelations and descriptions of events were also not as good as in Mistborn. In other words, I would have thought the novel phenomenal, had I not already read the full Mistborn series.

So for anyone who liked Mistborn even a little, this book is a MUST. Don't pass it up because I say you it wasn't as good, because you'd really be missing out. ( )

The author's skill at turning conventional fantasy on its head produces a tale filled with surprising twists and turns and a conclusion both satisfying and original.

A cut above the same-old, but hardly a classic.

A surprisingly satisfying, single-volume epic fantasy that invokes a complex, vibrant world.
adicionada por Katya0133 | editarBooklist, Regina Schroeder (May 1, 2005)
 
The intrigue and excitement grow steadily in this smoothly written, perfectly balanced narrative; by the end readers won't want to put it down.
adicionada por Katya0133 | editarPublishers Weekly (Apr 8, 2005)
 
This a book that if you haven't read already, it should be high up on your list of books to read next. While the steep learning curve and the slow pacing can be a little frustrating at times, the compelling characters and the intriguing mysteries make it so hard to put this book down.
