The Way of Kings

Recommended Posts

So, yeah, I had a working system. Posted it. Next morning, some random person randomly throws out "what if the Orders of the Knights Radiant can be divided into three groups?" (in an unrelated thread, it should be noted)

 

I think about it for a few minutes. I have a good look at my explanation for Surgebinding. Yup. They can. And I made some mistakes. *goes off to work on the system some more*

You're like a Sanderson super fan. :smile:

 

I started Way of Kings for the reread. I will be pressed to get them both done in time for Oathbreaker. I might have to listen outside of work in order to get them done, but that's okay.

My parents got Oathbringer two weeks early... Originally, I wasn't really planning on visiting them this weekend.

 

Now, I'm going there as soon as I can. Let's see if I can read the whole book in one weekend (though otherwise I'm taking it with me, kidnapping it if needed).

 

Also, the Theory of Identity is my first own Cosmere theory (except my within-one-day-outdated Surgebinding theory). Now working on a revisitation of Surgebinding, though I'm also kinda trying to hold off on it as I saw someone reference to "every Surge being part of a pair" and I want to know why he considers them such.

Your theory is over my head, Leyrann, but good luck with it!

 

I have no hope of finishing my reread before Oathbringer comes out. I am only on part two of Way of Kings. :sad:

Mwahaha we got it early. I've already read it. It's the best book I've ever read, no book even comes close. That includes A Memory of Light.

Well, I finished it in under a week (had to actually go to work and be a responsible adult for most of that time).

There was one particular point that had me literally sit up straight and exclaim aloud "OH $@#% YEAH!!!!!!" :unsure:

Great book.  I had to pop onto 17th Shard for the first time in about 4 years to lurk in some of the discussion threads.  And then proceeded to do a full reread of all 3 Stormlight Archive books.  And then start back at Mistborn 1 just for grins.  I wanted to read Bands of Mourning before I get to Arcanum Unbounded (because I was told there would be spoilers).

You are on the 17th Shard? What's your username?

By the way, I wrote this post-Oathbringer scene that people might like. Contains Oathbringer spoilers (obviously):

Songstress.  (Same as it is here, although with the DM9 update my display name changed, as did several others.)  I posted there last in January of 2012. :unsure:  Guess I can't manage to stay active on more than one forum at a time. :laugh:

That explains why I didn't see you around... Did you see me though? I was quite active, mostly the two weeks after release.

Also I'm gonna try to balance three forums now. :)

Oh absolutely.  As soon as I hopped on the Oathbringer spoiler forum, I spotted you.

I've been lurking quietly, reading a lot but not comfortable offering opinions just now.  

I may start posting there again after I finish my Mistborn series reread + Bands of Mourning + Arcanum though.  Maybe.

I have way too many books to read right now.

All 3 of the Stormlight Archive, all 6 of the Mistborn books, and 3 more in the Death Gate cycle by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.

Just found my favorite line in "The Way of Kings" right now: page  275 in the paperback version "Sadeas flushed, but kept his temper. 'A whore joke, Wit? Is that the best you can manage?' Wit shrugged. ' I point out truths when I see them, Bright-lord Sadeas. Each man has his place. Mine is to make insults. Yours is to be in-sluts.'"

 

I laughed out loud when I read this.

Oathbringer was outstanding! I thought it drug for quite awhile once they

 

went to Kholinar,

 but it wasn't that bad, and the ending was epic. I can't wait for the next one!

Don't know if I did the spoilers right.

 

 

What I wanted to happen in Words of Radiance actually did. Kaladin fought Szeth.

    • Also something something  contractually obliged to support Chris and WiFi in their endeavours 
    • /shrug there appear to be 3 lines of discontent   That the main actress asked for more diversity in the interviews (although I think she was more blunt in her phrasing and initially asked for fewer white middle aged males, and later clarified more diverse). Also that she's being paid significantly more for her first movie than eg Robert Downey Jr was for ironman 1, although I think this is correct I haven't seen any analysis that compares her first pay with eg the payscales in Spiderman, black panther, antman etc (or other first films since the universe became so popular). the marvel universe films are a different beast now to 20 odd films ago   That captain marvel was initially a male character(?)   That they think endgame will all be about captain marvel and sideline the other main characters (this would be a mistake if done, but I see little reason to believe that's the plan, it does seem from contracts if nothing else that marvel will be one of the core group for the next phase)       Regardless I agree it's dumb, and I enjoyed the film more than I thought I would (my misgivings being that I generally dislike heroes that are super super super powered, or at least get bored by their plotlines. I appreciate the irony in someone that enjoys superhero films and fantasy in general). But I enjoyed the marvel/fury dynamic, laughed a fair bit and generally enjoyed it     From a different perspective, its currently my niece's favourite MU film, and captain marvel is her favourite character, but she's more of a DC fan at the moment from watching the DC school series(?) and she does enjoy super powered female heroes in general
