Excellent story, spoiled by the pronunciation!

C'mon! The book is about company Raj over the Indian subcontinent! The biggest flaw of the company was that they did not assimilate with the local people. Sid Sagar, though, articulating the book very well, simply has not bothered to learn how to pronounce even the basic words! When you call Ganga as Ganja, its like calling the Thames and Ta-mez. Overall though a good book which definitely required better reader!

A very heavy read, but thoroughly enjoyable!

Loved the way Nick has gone about explaining his theories and ring down everything to Oxygen. Right from advent of life billions of years ago, to aging of humans now. It does get a bit heavy midway because of Chemistry for a layman, but then Bio Chemistry is the foundation of the discussion! So overall a fantastic read, such needs a little bit of dedication from the reader!

Okayish considering it's Brandon Sanderson book!

Disclaimer, I read the Mistborn series before going through Warbreaker. Definitely a weaker story, but then it's improper to compare a it with an amazing trilogy like Mistborn. Takes a bit of a time to get going, and only picks up pace at the end. The narration is exceptional though! Fantastic reading by Alyssa!

Love story in the guise of SciFi

Has a thin plot, which is extended too long. Yes there are multiple twists and turns which are difficult to forsee, which make the story interesting. But the paper thin plot makes it very difficult to retain interest. Also the narrator can do better when when voicing over female characters.

Superb recounting of the era!

Very well researched and written. Good storyline. Can be tough to undertstand the military jargons. But overall an excellent read.
