Earlier today i finished reading the last couple pages of Mistborn. Good book even though it was pretty much a fantasy adventure version of Ocean's 11.

 

Now I just started reading Well of Ascension

I'm going to be as vague as possible here, but still spoiler it just in case. Not much of a spoiler, honestly, just a small tidbit.

Spoiler

Things get a lot less Ocean's 11 going forward.

I was just noting it doesn't stay that way.

You are being very unnecessarily hostile. I just wanted to offer a bit of reassurance, since you seemed very critical of those portions of TFE.

Guess I know better than to try that with you again. 

Or anything else.

Not that that's much of a loss on your end, huh?

also, most people on this forum have read mistborn a half dozen times, have read the author's commentary, and the various related extra tidbits that brandon released in various interviews and q&a with fans, and discussed it in the forum in depth.

So yes, I do believe everyone answering to a mistborn post here is most likely to be a mistborn expert

Invocation,

 

Besides Mistborn having an Oceans 11 plot, the rest of the book is good even though I was getting hored with the characters hopping around from rooftops to rooftops with them eating swallowing metal like it was candy

@urrutiap if allomancy bothers you that much no ones making you read mistborn. And Invocation has been around for more than long enough to qualify as a mistborn expert.

Its not bothering me. Im just saying that the first book did go a bit overboard with the Oceans 11 type set up. the rest of the book was good.  Thats my opinion.  You dont need jump on my damnation back about it.

They weren't. They simply told you that it no longer continued in that vein. They did not mean to be offensive, and they weren't.

brandon himself acknowledged that a heist story like ocean eleven was part of his inspiration. he said that his first plan was to make the book a full heist story, but then as he wrote other elements took over.

I think most of us qualify as Mistborn experts considering we know more about it then anyone else on the planet with only a few hundred exceptions.  Oceans eleven was an inspiration.  Ninjad.
