I am old now, I have lived and during my long life I have read a great deal. The classics, Greek myth and tragedy, the Icelandic sagas, Origin myths, histories and many fantasy, horror and contemporary novels and so old now and jaded it is rare that something catches my shortening attention span so much as "The Final Empire" did. Marvelous storytelling based on a completely original idea. I was swept away and gathered up into this tale awaiting each and every change in the story. I also wished to mention Mr Sanderson's (occasional) gift of choosing the right words. Few have that capability.
I am now looking forward to reading the second volume in this series and hope that he continues his good work.
This book was a wonderful way to while away the hours during lock-down
