I think this book will soon in book stores.
I cannot wait, and take something else in Spanish (my native language)

I read this, it was GREAT! Very much looking forward to the next book in the series.

I suspect I'll have to wait for Christmas before I can read it.

Anyone else read this yet? I've recently finished it but will try not to share too many spoilers.

Better than Warbreaker but still not as good as his early works. The length and the jumps between characters mean the Sanderson Avalanche doesn't really work. I'm sure the digressions on morality ethic and religion will annoy some readers.

I did love all the crustacean based life though - I wonder if that's the background for the story; the rise of the Lobsters?!

Biggest problem - the bridges, why do they not dip into the canyons as they are being pushed out? Unless they're more than twice as long as the gap they're trying to bridge? which seems like vast amount of etra weight to carry?

I absolutely loved this series!
