    Inhaltsangabe

    A thousand years ago evil came to the land and has ruled with an iron hand ever since. The sun shines fitfully under clouds of ash that float down endlessly from the constant eruption of volcanoes. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families, and ordinary folk are condemned to lives in servitude, sold as goods, labouring in the ash fields. But now a troublemaker has arrived, and there is rumour of revolt. A revolt that depends on criminal that no-one can trust and a young girl who must master Allomancy - the magic that lies in all metals.

    Super-Girl topples the Empire

    I came to Mistborn after I read Sanderson's finishing novels of the 'wheel of time'. What a difference, Sanderson tried harder, when he wrote the 'wheel of time' or he simply became a better writer.

    Mistborn is a frugal meal as far as phantasy writing goes. The plot is fairly simple, the characters are one dimensional and with the exception of Kelsier and Vin (the mistborn), lack depth and profile.

    In a world, where ash-fall and mist smother life and turn everything into brown and grey colors, a tyrant (the great ruler) and the ruling class (great houses) exploit the Skaa in incredible cruelty. Skaa are without any rights and can get killed, maimed or raped at will. The luxurious and decadent life of the great houses is based on the slave work of the Skaa.

    Kelsier, a mistborn, escapes from the pits of Hathsin and intends to rid the empire of the great ruler and his noble houses. Vin, a young mistborn teenage girl, joins forces with him. Together with a band of criminals they take up the seemingly hopeless fight. Fortunately there is Allomancy, which gives incredible power to the mistborn by swallowing and burning metals or alloys.

    On the positive side, there is a lot of action and the battle scenes are well written and have enough blood and gore for the ones, who like that. Allomancy is a nice variation to the standard magic in phantasy tales. The concept is logically built and quite complex in in all its details.

    Unfortunately the world is poorly described and lacks detail and structure, Everything is brown and grey and there is a lot of fog at night. A little bit more would have been quite nice. Vin, the heroine of the tale is plastered with clichés and the resulting silliness tended to annoy me. Not every teenage girl with a brain would be easily corrupted by beautiful dresses and forget the cruelty of the noblehouses, just because they are so elegant. Some of the other characters would be quite appealing to the reader, if there would be more detail. Marsh, Kelzier's brother plays a vital part in the story, but we do not know anything about him. Breeze and the Terrisman Tutor are similar examples.

    I expected more from Brandon Sanderson

    It didn't live up to the hype!

    The story, with all of its action scenes, was quite good. But.....

    ...there were many things, that I disliked.

    1) Sanderson's ability to write interesting characters SUCKS! There was no emotion or depth to his characters. This made the whole book seem very juvenile and one dimensional.

    2) It was so repetitive. Either the book wasn't edited properly, or he thinks that his audience are daft and need everything explained to them twice. It was annoying.

    3) Blatent sexism. What was with the PRUDE comments about Vin having to put her clothes on? This happened twice!!! SO WHAT if a girl is standing there in her undergarments...GET OVER IT!!! The whole thing about the dresses...really?

    4) Michael Kramer was not my favourite narrator of all time. It was a solid effort, but nothing memorable or special.

    I have listened to quite a few Sanderson books. This would have to be my least favourite so far, which is very unfortunate.

    Teil 1-3. Fantasy at its fines mit einem Abstrich.

    Michael Kramer ist der beste Sprecher, den ich kenne. Jeder Charakter erhält seine unverwechselbare und fast immer passend wirkende Aussprache, ohne dass man das Gefühl bekommt, in ein Puppentheater geraten zu sein. Ermüdungsfrei kann ich seiner angenehmen Stimme und perfekt artikulierten Aussprache über etliche Stunden folgen. Besser geht es nicht.

    Teil 1 und 2 sind sensationell und bauen die fantastische Welt und den Spannungsbogen meisterhaft auf. In Teil 3 wird den Helden einfach zu oft bis dahin nicht vorhandene geistige Beschränktheit untergejubelt, damit sie auch in alle Fallen und Verhängnisse geraten, die der Leser längst durchschaut hat. Das ist schade.
    Zudem wird der Religionsfokus extrem aufgezogen. Während in den ersten beiden Teilen eine neue Religion mit all ihren Eigendynamiken durchaus spannend zu betrachten ist, dreht sich gegen Ende fast alles darum. Und der vom Glauben Abgekommene muss wieder Vertrauen in seine Religion finden usw usf. Das Ende wurde vom leichten Eindruck begleitet, gerade ein kreationistisches Propaganda-Werk fertig gehört zu haben.

    Trotz all dem insgesamt immer noch eine klare Empfehlung. Hat lange viel Spaß gemacht, sticht raus aus dem Fantasy-Einheitsbrei, kann man sich ruhig geben.

    Grey and dull

    Could not get excited neither about the story nor the characters. The reading was monotonous and dull, cannot discern the different characters too well from his reading. The language used does not conjure up very vivid imagery, I struggle to remember large parts of the story and fall asleep easily out of boredom. Had looked for a fantasy book to capture me like Harry Potter with good character development. This one got so many good reviews from the community, I gave it a try. I don't usually give such harsh criticism, but I am just disappointed and don't get the hype.

    Macht süchtig

    Sanderson baut riesige Spannungsbögen auf, dann überrascht er den Leser immer wieder neu. Die Handlung entwickelt sich unvorhersehbar.
    Kramer liest mit angenehmer Stimme und gut verständlich auch für nicht Muttersprachler.
    Mein erster Sanderson und ich bin schon süchtig.

    Interesting twist of the plot - awesome!

    The world has been designed with love for detail and much creativity. The plot is very refreshing and has a nice unexpected twist.
    Michael Kramer is a fantastic match as reader and gives each character a special personality and a different voice.
    I enjoyed this book a lot!

    No chapterisation / Keine Kapitel

    Great speaker, Great story. Horrible audiobook. No chaperisation. A single 24h audio track. Impossible to navigate.

    Großartiger Sprecher, tolle Geschichte. Unmögliches Hörbuch. Keine Kapiteleinteilung. Ein 24h-Kapitel. Unmöglich vernünftig vor- oder zurück zu springen.
