bookshelves: fantasy, cosmere

I almost feel guilty for criticising this story after reading Sanderson's postscript, including the reason for writing it in the first place. Apparently on a date with his eventual wife, Sanderson learned that one of her students had written a book report about Elantris. That the guy would then go on to write a short story dedicated to said student set in the same universe, shows yet again that he is a thoughtful writer who cares about those who read his work.

That being said, the story in itself is rather pointless. It doesn't really add anything to the Elantris universe except a chance for the reader to look around and observe the city's environment during a time of upheaval.
