I really loved the world and the idea behind the magic. I however found parts of it very annoying. the book would often jump forward in certain areas leaving parts out entirely or it would go back and explain what happened a little bit further on. it made little hiccups in the story that was confusing and I had to rewind and make sure I hadn't just missed something. it really pulled you out of the story.
Overall I will probably read more books of this series but I have no drive to look for them right away.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend the book to fans of High Fantasy, with lots of politics, and requiring some mental investment.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I like the idea of a dyslexic wizard in a word where magic relies on reading and writing in multiple languages. However, the language angle also distracts from the action at times. The many factions also mean you need to be paying close attention to follow the audio edition.
Was Spellwright worth the listening time?
I liked the book, but I think it might be better read in print instead of listened to. Of course, your mileage may vary.
