Beena (beenz) | 1379 comments Yasss, excited!

@Eva, Ha that's insane, I'd be scared of losing my book! Not that I'm likely to sky dive or anything haha..


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1107 comments So I've started listening early after I finished the last one I was listening too. I've listened to all so far, so I may spell some names incorrectly.

Chapter 11 (view spoiler)

Beena (beenz) | 1379 comments Cannot wait for this!! Bring it on!

I started a bit early also. Couldn't justify being late by starting the other books on my docket for the month lol.

I swear Sanderson is one of the very few authors who can write 1000+ pages books and not have any single boring passages within them. At least for me - I eat up every moment.

Through Ch. 10 (view spoiler)


Lucija | 294 comments I'll be starting tommorow. Sooo excited :D

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1920 comments Ok, biased group here, but my registration is due on my car and this is available. Should I get it?




message 15: by Rob (new) - rated it 5 stars

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1920 comments Ergh. My family is overruling me. They like my current license plate which randomly combines my birthday and eggy in. So they call the car eggybirthday.


message 16: by Beena (new)

Beena (beenz) | 1379 comments Noooo! That license plate would be awesome Rob!


message 17: by Beena (new)

Beena (beenz) | 1379 comments Read up to end of Chapter 4, I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like I'm starting again almost because it's a completely new chapter in the story... like WoR just followed on from WoK and you knew the direction the story was going in, now I feel like I'm in uncharted waters again...

Up to Chapter 4 spoilers

Completely agree, with Stormlight that's so true! Though some parts of Warbreaker did bore me a bit unfortunately! (Even though it's less than a 1000 pages lol).

Haha I totally vote for the Bridge4 - what a cool idea!

Anni | 5020 comments "Right now, the story sits at 57k words—which is almost double what I was planning it to be. I guess that’s what happens when The Lopen gets viewpoints in a book. A regular novella isn’t enough to contain him."

Lopen is getting a POV in Dawnshard, aaaaah ❤️

Your comments are all so thoughtful... enjoying reading the spoiler tags. :) (view spoiler)

I'm grateful for this reread. I must have flown through it the first time in excitement because I'm finding I remember next to nothing lol. It's like a bonus SA book for me! I need to read RoW slower...


Paula (paula7) | 680 comments Beena
(view spoiler)

Niki(view spoiler) It's my first read of SA but even then somethings are kind of a blur, I can't imagine having read the book years ago


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1107 comments I'm grateful for this thread telling me how everything is spelled since I've listened to everything so far. Something that happened the other day while I was driving, I don't remember the exact chapter but it was around 87 or a few chapters before. (view spoiler)


message 39: by Beena (new)

Beena (beenz) | 1379 comments Lopen is getting a POV in Dawnshard, aaaaah

@Anni, That'll be awesome!! Love Lopen!


I'm dying to find out more about the Parshendi culture/history. There's so much about them I don't grasp yet.

Agree Niki, Sanderson's created a very intriguing people with them, there's so much to unfold yet.

But that's the best!

@Paula, Yeah, I do like Dalinar too, I think it's just the change of direction too.

I'm more hesitant when the ten year gap will happen between books five and six, with different main characters but I'm sure sanderson will make it good

Errr WHAT?! I had no idea he was going to do this!!


Paula (paula7) | 680 comments haha, i mean, they are not that different. he will use secondary characters like renarin, lift, eshonai and szeth if I am remembering right. and the main ones will then be secondary. But, yeah, though they are also very interesting I'm super hesitant

Wow I did not know about that. I knew about the time gap, but not this. I'm already sad about losing precious time with my favorite characters haha


Lucija | 294 comments I just read chapter 12 too
