What the community says about The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive)
- "I love reading AND I FOUND THIS BOOK AMAZING. The Way of Kings is the first book of The Stormlight Archive series written by Brandon Sanderson published by Tor Books in 2010. It is about the world of Roshar."
- "This is one of the better fantasy novels I've read in a while. It is a lengthy read at 1280 pages yet I finished it in one weekend over Christmas holiday. I highly advise not to start it if there's work to be done because it is not an easy book to put down. Brandon Sanderson is a masterful storyteller. This is an excellent read."
- "Original, beautiful, and most excellent. I don't remember why I added this to my reading list, but I'm incredibly grateful that I did. I usually read a review or three before starting a new book, going all the way back to when only print books were available and reading the blurbs led me to all kinds of new and interesting stories. I'm pretty sure I've read some of Mr. Sanderson' work before, but without reviewing his body of work, I'm unable to tell you what or even how I felt about it. But this is one of the best, if not the best, books I've read in the last 30 years. I'm almost afraid to pick up the next one in the series as I have work to do and don't know if I'll be able to get it done knowing that more of this world is available to unfold before my eyes. I don't think I've rated more than four or five books at five stars, but I had no hesitation here ."
- "This series of novels is an excellent alternative to Game of Thrones. The series is filled with interesting characters, an engaging plot, and, most importantly, the books are published in a timely manner, unlike Game of Thrones. As a fan of fantasy novels, I personally found this series to be amazing.""I haven't heard this book nor the author. Given the solution it seems the authors has many books. I can give it a try but I can say that I keep my hopes at minimum. I did not like the first impressions that coming out of the book."
- "Coming from the author who completed the Wheel of Time series, this is a fantasy novel with high acclaim. If you're looking for a modern classic in the action and adventure genre, look no further."
- "My friend recommended that I read The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive). I thought it was okay in terms of writing, but the world it created was very immersive and created many mental images in my head while reading. However I would not say that it is one of the most highly-rated novels of all time. Look to Frankenstein or The Great Gatsby if you want a supremely rated novel."
