The only true Catwoman is Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, or Eartha Kitt.

I really can't wait for this book to be released. I'm a huge Sanderson fan; he's extremely good at avoiding the problems that often hit other genre writers

I don't think this is the same writer, because the first Mistborn book was plagued by all sorts of genre and first-novel trappings. Also, I don't think being descriptive being overly wordy are comparable things.

I liked the dude because of his podcast, but ~140 pages into the first Mistborn novel, all it was was cliches about young rogues and mysterious magic strangers with the blandest possible prose. Having a magic system that you have to exposit like a DnD manual doesn't help, either.
I don't know how some of you got positive experiences from the reading, much less made it through more than one. Then again, this is the sub-forum that loves Erikson despite his many flaws.

Maybe he's matured a bit or has a better focus with this one, but I'm not counting on it.

Aye, I can respect that, but that sort of progression will always be a slow uphill drive.
