Don’t hold your Breath(s)

Book: Warbreaker

By: Brandon Sanderson

Themes:

We have a hard time accepting people of different cultures and religions.

Sometimes fate is avoidable (Vivenna) and sometimes it isn’t (Lightsong).

People can change.

You can’t judge a person by their exterior (Vasher, Susebron)

Countries can be manipulated into war against their own interests and desires.

Notes:

There’s a really cool magic system in this book – it’s described in very high detail and isn’t like anything I’ve seen before.
