Review: White Sand, Volume 1

White Sand, Volume 1 (White Sand, #1)White Sand, Volume 1 by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

I don’t read many graphic novels, which makes this a difficult review, but I read it in a single sitting on my recent road trip and thoroughly enjoyed it.

As always, Sanderson crafted a beautifully complex world filled with unique mechanics, cultures, and magic.

The pictures were wonderful, but at times I found it difficult to distinguish the characters. This made it harder to follow conversations than the simple dialogue tags I’m used to.

Unlike the full narrative arc I’d expect in a novel, the plot didn’t get very far. I assume this was due to the episodic formula of the medium. It was frustrating to have the story end just when it was starting to come together, but from a marketing standpoint it definitely left me wanting more and I will surely buy the second book.
