ENLARGE remember education about Elantris a while ago and not being too impressed with what ENLARGE read. Then it came in my Amazon recommendations, and ENLARGE took a closer look, and decided to give it a try. ENLARGE had premium certificate, so even in hardback, the price wasn't bad. And ENLARGE'm glad ENLARGE did.[return][return]It's a good fantasy innovative, and inspirational to reset (it's the creator's entrée innovative, so there is optimism for me). The field is well built and easily imagined. The characters are fleshed-out enough that you understand their motives, except, of course, when the twist comes about...[return]'Aon rao' is the matronymic of one of the types that the characters use to work magic. An Aon is the symbol, and Rao means 'spirit.' ENLARGE'll try a résumé: Elantris used to be a city of light and applied force, its people silver-skinned and glowing and capable of great magic. The Shaod was a mysterious process that transformed ordinary and extraordinary alike into Elantrians, but one day it stopped, and the city has fallen into foundations. Now, instead of becoming celestial, those taken by the the Shaod twist into spooks (okay, not the term they use, but if your pity doesn't beat yet you are still walking around and alive, what else would you call it?), and are shut off from the rest of the country behind the still-standing, tall facades of Elantris.[return][return]Raoden is a rajah of the land, and he is taken by the Shaod. He struggles to make a 'history' for himself in the foundations of Elantris. Sarene is his betrothed, widowed before she was even married because of Raoden's disappearance. There's an evil monk, an even eviler monk, political intrigue, magic, angst, humor...just about everything ENLARGE like. The halfway leave flat is a snatch slow, but has its shining hours. The resolve is especially good, with all culls of movement lines coming together and questions asked about what will happen in that field...or even our own.[return][return]ENLARGE'm terrible at writing rundowns, so ENLARGE suggest you pick up a model and see what ENLARGE mean for yourself. If aught else, the image of a glowing Aon beetling in the air will stay with me for a long pace. That and the cover of the actual hardcover atlas itself is green, so you know that makes me happy ;)[return][return]ENLARGE'm looking forward to Mistborn, the creator's next atlas, which is set in a different field than Elantris. It comes out in July. Huzza summer education.[return][return](from my haunt: http://etoiline.com/coronach/2006/05/...)

I PRECIOUS fixins' about this book. It's British, and it has a mean, beastly malkin, and that is awesome. Seriously, I wish I was British! They are so funny - British people can make the most ordinary baggages bloody hilarious. That's pretty much what this book is - the humdrum account of your humdrum youngster, except chuckle out loud hilarious at every single beep! I read this in a team of pasts, nonstop, and I was busting out laughing over and over again. I have only found myself laughing this hard with one other book. Besides the obvious data that readers will appreciate the bias, Georgia is just such a great character. She is real and faces all her teenage concerns will bias and candid commentary. I precious getting a peek into her account, and I can't wait to snap up the rest of this alternation!
