I've just finished this book and loved it, and was wondering if anyone could recommend another Sanderson book similar to this one I loved Steelheart, Mitosis and Firefight too, but haven't read any of his other books yet. Is the Mistborn trilogy a good bet?
Thanks in advance for the help :. Scott I have yet to read anything by Sanderson that I didn't enjoy. He has books aimed at different levels of readers. The Rithmatist would be a great read …more I have yet to read anything by Sanderson that I didn't enjoy.
The Rithmatist would be a great read for junior high level on up. Clean with action, but no gore. The Reckoners series is aimed at the young adult market. The books are fast paced and gripping, with a gritty edge. The first three Mistborn books, on the other hand, are epic fantasy that include many dark elements. The books in his Stormlight Archive series are even more serious epic fantasy that require a high level of reader commitment.
If you're interested in something shorter, check out some of Sanderson's novellas. All great reads. Does this book have a childish tone to it like Neil Gaiman's Interworld , as in a teenager feel? Or is it proper adult fantasy which a 24 year old can enjoy Aaron Okuyo Toponce Well, it is technically a "young adult fantasy", so take that as you will.

I read it to my then 7 year old daughter, and she actually didn't care for it as much as she did the Alcatraz series by the same author. But no, I wouldn't say it has a "teenager feel". See all 18 questions about The Rithmatist….

Dec 10, Patrick rated it it was amazing. Listened to this one on audio, vainly hoping beyond hope that I might finally read a Brandon Sanderson book I don't like so I can feel better about myself as an author. But no. I enjoyed this book as much as any of his. Good worldbuilding, just as you'd expect from Sanderson.
And a clever, detailed magic system. Good mystery surrounding the world. And I really like that things aren't easy for the protagonist.
Everything doesn't just fall into his lap. He wants things at the beginning of the book Listened to this one on audio, vainly hoping beyond hope that I might finally read a Brandon Sanderson book I don't like so I can feel better about myself as an author.
He wants things at the beginning of the book, and at the end of the book, he still wants them. He has some hope now, because he's learned more about the world, but some of his greatest desires are still not just unattainable, but seemingly impossible.
Looking forward to the next one in the series. View all 17 comments. May 17, Caz littlebookowl rated it really liked it Shelves: owned. Rating: 4. Feb 07, Dana Ilie rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy.
A another mind blowing book. The Rithmatist, is a Young Adult fantasy. Sanderson hits all the right notes when it comes to all the usual YA themes; coming of age, the meaning of true friendship, loyalty, perseverance, and even a didactic against bullying. As expected in a Sanderson novel, the magic system is completely unique. The characters are a fun bunch to read about — every one of them is unique with their distinct personalities and idiosyncrasies. Sanderson does a good job here and the charac A another mind blowing book.
Sanderson does a good job here and the characters keep you fully entertained. The story, setting, and magic system also reminded me a bit of The Name of The Wind — especially the part where Kvothe attends magic school and studies a rigidly structured magic with specific rules.
The world is pretty similar to our world near the turn of the century with magical elements added to it. It almost feels a bit like 20th century England with parts of Lord of the Rings added into the geography. Overall, The Rithmatist is a fantastic book that will guarantee to keep both adults and kids entertained.
My only complaint is we will have to wait another year to continue the story. View 1 comment. Brandon Sanderson just made chalk figures scary. Chalk figures. I have plans for summer elective. Rithmatics is the magic of bringing to life little chalk figures called chalklings ostensibly to fight their murderous wild brethren , but as par for the course for a Sanderson book, watching chalkings destroy each other is only a tiny piece of the magic.
Rithmatics is, really is, a fascinating mix of logic, math, and art see the wonderful drawings by Ben McSweeney at the beginning of each chapter, basically , and exploring the theory behind Rithmatic combat as Rithmatists use various geometric shapes to direct and protect themselves from the chalklings is an eye opening experience for anyone who appreciates the beauty of simple geometry. That, or unicorns. In a way, beyond the magic system, The Rithmatist feels more like a middle grade book than a young adult one.
The upside of that, though, is I am beyond tired of the relationship drama that seems to be the focus of young adult these days, so a book, heck a great book with an awesome Sanderson magic system, that concentrates on the plot and things that actually interest me rather than who likes whom is absolutely a breath of fresh air. Lucky for those pedestrians on the sidewalk below, yeah I did eat crow, not only because Sanderson kept me seriously occupied with Rithmatic theory, but also because while there are enough similarities to be distracting, there are also enough differences for The Rithmatist to stand on its own.

How Did You Come Up With The Rithmatist?
I wrote it when I was supposed to be working on other things back in I have often stopped my main projects for side ones. It is part of what keeps me fresh. The book is technically gearpunk—which is not steampunk, but more Da Vinci-era technology, extrapolated hundreds of years into the future.
You mentioned that you thought Rithmatist was gonna in the Cosmere. Did you have a Shard in mind? Very early on, I did. But I won't tell you who it was.
