Hey you guys! So I noticed that the Rhythm of War is coming out in a few months and I had an idea.... I'm usually super slow at re-reading books (because I know the plot, so it's not as exciting although I still enjoy it), but I wanted to re-read Stormlight books 1-3 before this next one comes out. I think we'd have about a month and a half to read each book (probably more like a month and a week)? I thought it would be extremely fun to find others that might want to do that with me! We could split up the chapters so we could get it done in time, encourage each other, and just generally discuss any interesting Shard-y things we find! Also, new friends! I'm a huge nerd and I also love organizing, so as long as you have the books, I think it's possible. Are you up for it?
I run a book club at my university, and the book for this summer is Way of Kings (and possibly WoR and OB as well). We're having mini-meetings every part. I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for discussion questions or topics or just interesting things they noticed for different sections? For part one we talk a lot about opening world building and first impressions, for the future I have some topics planned (Jasnah's Lesson, Dalinar and authority, The Side-Carry). It's a bit tricky cause it's about 3 first-time Sanderson readers, 2 people cosmere veterans, and one person who's read the rest of the cosmere but is a first time SA reader and I'm trying to make discussion interesting for everybody but non-spoiler-y. Any ideas?
Hi! So, my friends and I just started a book club and I get to pick the next book! I really want to bring Brandon into the club, but we just read The Devil in the White City which is a little slow, and a little long, so I don't want to introduce any book that's longer than that right now. And most of Brandon's shorter works aren't best for introductory IMO. So I want to get their feet wet with fantasy so that I can suggest a Brandon book in the future. Unfortunately, I don't read a lot of shorter fantasy and the ones I've read, I just don't think would be right for this. With a little research I've narrowed it down to the following three: Tea With the Black Dragon, by R. A. MacAvoy Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I'm open to others as well! I haven't read any of these and I figured this would be the best community to lend advice! I want to stick to fantasy, so I ruled out A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Ender's Game, even though those are fantastic.
