  1. Ok this is my confession: I don´t like Tolkien. Fellowship bored me to death, I don´t know how I managed to finish it. Years later (I thought I was a more mature reader) I tried with The Hobbit and left it a few pages before the end -and no regrets.
  2. Agreed! I really tried the unabridged, and though it was interesting, it was also too much information for me. Speaking about classics, the one I recommend (and am currently thinking on rereading) is The Count of Montecristo. It´s Amazing! Everything ever invented, except perhaps time travel, happens in that book! I just finished Echo of Things to Come and blew my mind really solid series!
  3. Everything started with Harry Potter
  4. Read a book - loved a book (first time I really really love a book since Oathbringer BTW)- googled it for more information and discusssion - find this thread here. This site feels more and more like home.
  5. I totally agree. Though I watched the movies, I am not really a fan. But what he says about expecting and demanding consistency rings a bell
  6. Wow guys! I returned from holidays and find 30 new pages! I´m so proud of you! I wanted to share this video with you. Is´t about Star Wars, but I think it relates to our issues with the ships and the habit of overanalyzing that got us here (still trying to move on). Enjoy and tell me what you think
  7. Why does so many people say this? I feel I lost something, or perhaps didn't read that specific thread...
  8. Of course it is! Maybe what we should be wondering is exactly about what this joke is? Many times in OB I felt like Brandon was having fun with us hehe. Hhahahah If book 4 is like this then I am officially hyped! Luckly this is so outrageous, she didn't uncover her safe hand But I could almost side with Gavilar for this.
  9. Can we please talk about the implications of this? Is it a wink to the readers worried about "the infamous Angle"? Is Vadam Adolin, Sterling Kaladin, Shallan a little whore? What about the sequel´s quadrangle? Is Hoid involved in this? Theorisation apart, I love how this reads as a Jane Austen kind of novel. And, I am dying to know exactly what´s the deal with safehands.
  10. Yes, I agree that "cling" wasn't the right word. What I meant was that he persist on the relationship. I see this as relevant because we have some reason to believe he used to get bored in other relationships, or just didn't try very hard. With Shallan we see him trying to make it work.
  11. So after WOR we have an Adolin that went from being on the top of the social chain, best fighter, very powerful, popular, surrounded by friends and occasional girls, (never without girls) to being more lonely, alienated from his previous circle, not powerful enough, not really relevant at war. No wonder he clings actually tries to make the relationship work with Shallan (who stays betrothed to him and eventually marries him, despite being in a position of power in terms of relationship) and befriends Kaladin (who has proven to be a loyal , and is quite magnetic).
  12. I am pretty sure the people from the reship islands are even more audacious. They swim half naked
  13. I like this idea. He cannot protect everyone, but he can let other protect, and inspire them to do so. Hence the leadership. The only loophole I see is that he is already doing this. Maybe he should concisely accept that by doing this he will be letting the people he cares about put themselves in danger...
  14. I managed to find the 1st Ketek in Spanish. There is not knowing if it is a accurate or just a lazy translation. I read the "Above Silence" as the absence of Honor/the Almighty. The high storms are showing/reveling this lack of Honor. Also, the storms are dying...? "Above silence" could relate to the helplessness the characters seem to feel in the first part. "Illuminatig storms" may be, as @Dreamstorm said, the massage conveyed in Dalinar´s visions. It could also refer to the first steps they take towards their respective objetives. Here is when Kaladin starts to fight back again...I´m at lost with "dying storms". "Illuminate the silence above" seems to me like a call to action, people chasing to stand up by themselves, in response to the lack of Honor. On a second thought, the "dying storms" reminded me of this: Maybe the "dying storms" are the consequence of Honor´s absence. Honor used to be a sort of moral compass. The storms and winds are linked with Honor many times. So the fact that there is "silence above" / Honor is not there causes the "dying storm"/lack of honorable acts, and that reveals the absence of Honor. Kind of what Syl means in that passage. Am I making sense? --- @Humming welcome onboard. @GoddessIMHO I haven´t listend to the shardpost, but there is no denying there are many that feel at lost with the triangle resolution, and we have already overanalyzed everything and still get the same feeling, so I guess it doesn't really matter what they say. I´m glad for them anyway. As for the Ketek, I agree it applies to the whole book, though being made for Shallan´s marriage it may have some specific meaning. It is a strange piece to write on a wedding day...
  15. Has anyone read the books in a different language? English is too simple... I´m sure the different versions could give better insight on the meaning (kind of with the Harry Potter´s RAB mystery).
