I am struggling. I am struggling soooo hard with this book right now. In general, I like Brandon Sanderson’s books, but I picked up Way of Kings from the library and…. I am slogging.
I blame his editor. His editor needed to look him in the face and say “Dude. You don’t need to say everything six times. It’s one book. and four main characters? FOUR? You need to work up to that kind of multi-protagonist shit.” Seriously, that doesn’t count the like 8 times there have been little aside-sort of things.
I can tell this book was written post-Wheel of Time… I think he picked up some of Jordan’s bad habits.
It’s an interesting world and the protagonists are well-written (it is still Sanderson and he does write interesting characters). The magic is kind of fascinating and I will drag myself through it, but LAWD, I am struggling with it.
