I'm a Sanderson fan, and I enjoyed it as well. It's not completely a standalone though, he did write a couple of other things in the same setting, a 2007 short story concurrent with the events of the book titled "Hope of Elantris", and a 2013 novella set in a different region of that world titled The Emperor's Soul.
