I meant to be kidding about the recent post saying I’d forget about blogging for awhile in order to read Words of Radiance, Brandon Sanderson’s latest epic fantasy offering.
But it is captivating my thoughts, my attention, and my free time.
What I love about Sanderson’s work in Way of Kings and this book is how he includes some nuggets of truth and morality without getting preachy. He also does this from different character’s perspectives, so sometimes a reasonable case might be made for each of a pair of conflicting values.
Although I wonder if he might have watched a little too much Game of Thrones with the surprising out-of-nowhere death of what I thought was a major character early on in the book. That’s spoiler-ish without being a spoiler, so I don’t feel guilty.
The book is interspersed with gorgeous artwork, just like the first. I’m finding it well worth my time.
Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination.
Reading before blogging.
