Just a couple more thoughts of why I like the book so much. It’s a Heist story. I always enjoy a good heist and this one is extremely fun: the carefully plans might still fail and yet the failed plans might lead to bigger or unexpected success. The processes of the planning and the training are both superbly enjoyable.
And there is the whole large-scaled discussion of legend, story, myth, and religion. Sanderson obviously wanted to cover a huge ground and as far as I can see, he has succeeded in clearly presenting his characters’ beliefs.
The gentle romance does not hurt, either! Ah, it defintely is a great read!
