It's entertaining to compare notes with other fans to see what they picked up that you did not. I guess it's obvious that I loved this book and highly recommend it. A coworker who read it commented that it could serve as the curriculum for a college class on ethics and values. I wish all college text books could be this fun to read.
The book is the first in a series of ten, and it does take a while to get into because Sanderson builds the world and shows its rich history and many cultures. The tale centers around three main characters Kaladin, Dalinar, and Shallan. Some of the storylines (Kaladin especially) are more compelling right now than others. But they're all tied together, and Sanderson drops all kinds of oh, so casual comments that seem to scream of bigger things to come. Each chapter begins with a little blerb, and they make you wonder what's going on and sometimes seem a little creepy. And they are creepy, when you find out more about them at the end. I can't wait to read the next book--which he hasn't written yet since he's finishing up the Wheel of Time series.
