I really enjoyed Elantris. My only prior experience with Brandon's works was The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance. Both more recent work. My thoughts on Elantris is that the story is fantastic, but the writing lacks the sophistication of his later work. Understandably I should add. I felt the description of Elantris (the city) was great, but the rest of the world was a bit vague. I really like the characters, pretty much all of them. There are some nice twists throughout. You might roll your eyes a little at the climax, but it's enjoyable.
Looking forward to the next installment and indeed all of Brandon's work.
