A post for all those appearing here by the magic of Google. You may be thinking "Sanderson writes well but Mistborn was slow and boring for me", or "Damnnnn this man is always writing about stereotypical bad guys who hold positions of power, a little depth please?" and you may have a point. HOWEVER, where are those two things not out of place? In SUPERHERO stories. In fact, they would almost be requirements for a good book.

So if you wish to give Sanderson a second chance, try Steelheart and see if you like it. A superhero story where his weak points become strengths.

I've got the pleasure of doing so right now, in fact. I listen to the "Writing Excuses" podcast and want to get to know Mr. Sanderson, so I checked to see what we've got in our local library. Three-quarters of the way through Steelheart now and I'm enjoying his wry tone. And I fully intend to read the Mistborn series in the future.
