I've been rereading the Stormlight Archive (first time since consuming all other cosmere content), and can I just say...
THEY ARE THE BEST - THE STORMING BEST BOOKS IN THE WORLD
I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but like, bro- these are so so so beautifully crafted. I was reading them, and I was really enjoying them, and then last night (reading WoR), something snapped within me, and the enjoyment has morphed backed into an obsession.
enjoy this shallan rantSpoiler
I was reading Shallan's POV more carefully, and storms almighty, she has way more character building and foreshadowing than I remember
I think that part of that is intentional, Shallan is set up to be a character that is overlooked, because the way she responds to mental crem is different than you would expect, for example, different that Kaladin. Rather than being obviously broken on the outside, it's more of a reality in the inner world. A lot of people skim over her parts because they're less action than Kaladin's are, and she seems more 'bland,' when in reality, her character is super duper deep. The more you get to know her character, the more you realize, she's not bland, but so many people like her are looked over and thought as two-dimensional and bland because they don't always show their inner world on the outside.Spoiler
also I was supposed to be writing an essay on Frankenstein and instead I spent the last hour or so here and nobody can stop me MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
